Now and then, you find these ass-kicking podcasts that you need to survive these long and dark afternoons. Avalon Emerson has recorded one of these special mixes that are rough and focused without getting boring, that are experimental and push boarders forward without getting annoying. She finds the perfect mixture of different styles from new wave over the futurism of techno and the soul of American house to the exuberance of rave. Born in the desert somewhere in Arizona, she moved to San Francisco where she started her career as DJ and producer. Currently she is living in Berlin, globetrotting around the world and releasing extraordinary stuff on Shtum, Spring Theory, Icee Hot, and her own DJ tool edit pool, the Cybernedits series. So, back to her mix for Electronic Beats, she mixes some really weird stuff such as Severed Heads – All Saints Day, Faster Action – Untitled, or the awesome LDC – Die Schwarze Zone from 1991. Super!
