Check Out a Vintage Mix from Derek Plaslaiko
- Words: Glenn Jackson
In the early and mid-aughts, veteran techno and house jock Derek Plaslaiko served as a resident DJ for Detroit's Untitled party alongside Matthew Dear, Mike Servito, and Tadd Mullinix (a.k.a. Dabyre, James T. Cotton). And with a 10-year renuion of the resident selectors planned for March 1, Plaslaiko has unearthed one of his classic, Untitled-themed mixes from 2003, making it available for music fiends to stream and download. In hindsight, the 75-minute DJ set makes for a comprehensive snapshot of what was likely to be on Plaslaiko's—and a lot of other folks—turntables back in 2003, with some classic Moodymann, Magda, Aphex Twin (admittedly an "Acid Edit"), and Mathew Jonson—even a bit of Portishead is thrown in for good measure. In the player below, you can give Plaslaiko's vintage mix a whirl before he returns to his Detroit stomping grounds next month.
