    Exclusive Mix: The tracks that inspired house music, by Dean Cavanagh

    This is a real treat, an exclusive mix that Dean Cavanagh has done for us, these are songs that inspired the creation of house music.

    So who is Dean?

    Dean Cavanagh is the screenwriting partner of Irvine "Trainspotting" Welsh and has worked with him since the 90's. Prior to this Dean co-founded the club culture magazine "The Herb Garden" and wrote about dance music for The Face, i-D, NME and The Melody Maker.

    In the early 80's Dean was involved in the soul scene and promoted Northern Soul club nights in West Yorkshire. In the late 80's he started promoting house nights and this culminated in him creating the highly influential Soundclash nights in Leeds with Andrew Weatherall.

    This new mix is curated exclusively for you, our Future Past followers. You can find Dean on twitter here.

    How we print our DTG Future Past designs

    This brief video shows one of the methods we use to ensure you get the highest possible print quality for any clothing you buy from us, this was filmed in our factory being printed for an order being sent out that day.

    We recently invested in a second DTG (Direct To Garment) printer, the latest model, due to the demand of orders we have and it's improved printing time.  DTG is capable of the highest resolution full colour images that are just not possible with some of the more traditional methods. 

    This is a monochrome design on the video so doesn't really show what this machine is capable of colour wise, but shows the process from start to finish.

    If you like this design, it's available in our store here. Anyway, get your popcorn ready and prepare for the cinematic experience of the century...

    Future Past - Printing by DTG from Dean Foster on Vimeo.

    The featured image shows how good a multi coloured image can look. This is a special tee we've just printed from an enquiry we had from a modular synthesiser user who wanted his actual modular rack printing from his modular grid account, and simply by zooming out in his browser and taking a screenshot on the site we could print the image in high resolution and full colour.

    If you'd love your rack printing the same get in touch, some of you may have to zoom out on the modular grid site even farther than others depending how much gear you have...

    This may be something we actually list on the website if we have enough demand.  I quite like the idea, as all of us (like myself) who use modular gear are usually forever adding and replacing and building their system, so hopefully they'll buy more tees to keep their modular tee up to date too :o)

    PS I wrote the music on the Moog Modular app on an iPad pro...it's not going to win any awards, and I don't think Aphex Twin is getting worried, but I've always been a sucker for melodic synth arpeggios and seems to suit the design and video. It's quite calming I think.
