Much of the old-school stuff I've been digging lately has been coming from one of house music's most mysterious and tragic figures: Spencer Kincy, also known as Gemini. (A fascinating and sad story about him is up at 5 Magazine). The breadth of his discography ranges from techno bangers to funky deep house grooves to Larry Heard-like acid rushes, and his skills on the decks were legendary throughout the nineties. Below is a zipped, four-part mix of Kincy's recorded in Dallas in 1996.

And like the author of the 5 Magazine article above, I am dedicated to searching Kincy out- his talent is too great for him to slip through the cracks of homelessness and mental illness.

Tomorrow, some new techno greatness.
