On a Different Note: Essential Mix by The Gaslamp Killer

00:00 Nov/30/1999

In The Official Global DJ Rankings, The Gaslamp Killer is filed under the 'electronica' genre. While this isn't actually false, it doesn't really capture the nature of The Gaslamp Killer (born William Benjamin Bensussen), an eccentric DJ/producer. Growing up in San Diego, California Bensussen started listening to Jimi Hendrix and Dr. Dre. As a major influence, DJ Shadow inspired him to become a DJ when he was 17. The genres of Bensussen's repertoire vary from electronica, hip hop, glitch, dubstep, psychedelic rock and much more. Check out his first ever Essential Mix for the legendary Pete Tong's BBC Radio 1 show!

This is a surreal journey during which The Gaslamp Killer accompanies you with fellow weirdos from the Brainfeeder label - Radiohead, Aphex Twin, Portishead Mr. Oizo and Flying Lotus to name a few.

“I made this Essential Mix with two Technics 1200 turntables and a Rane TTM56 DJ mixer,” introduces Gaslamp Killer. “I also used a Roland SP-303 Dr. Sample and Pro Tools. Some of this mix was made using Serato and some of it using my original vinyl collection. I chose songs I’ve been listening to around the house as well as songs I play in my sets around the world,” he continued. “This mix was also influenced highly by my weekly club night here in Los Angeles called the Low End Theory. You will hear exclusives from Hudson Mohawke, Lorn, Dilla and Flying Lotus, not to mention a bunch of wild and crazy mixes and edits done by yours truly, The Gaslamp Killer. I hope that this narrative takes you on a journey through my ears, my heart, my mind as well as my soul.”
