House Of Traps: The Ransom Note Mix


Lindsay Todd has found himself in a rather unusual position as of late. The Edinburgh based gentleman has seen his Firecracker label reach dizzy new heights over the last two years. Finally his singular taste is being rewarded for the true value which it beholds and the records that he has been releasing slowly but surely have begun to gain the recognition that they deserve. As a DJ, there a few who carry as much knowledge as Lindsay, who plays out under the guise of House of Traps. He is also responsible for The Living Mountain record shop in Edinburgh, alongside a vast array of musical collaborations, projects and contributions. This one is a testament to those who do it for the love of it. Read the interview and listen to the mix below: 

What would be the ideal setting to listen to the mix?

5am at the Wild Bean coffee counter at Harthill Services. 

What would be your dream setting to record a mix: Location, system, format?

See above. 

What’s your favourite recorded mix of all time?

Lil Louis on Skyrock/Maxparty Radio Nova 92. 

What was your first DJ set up at home and what is it now?

2 x 1210s and a Kam Made2Fade mixer. Pretty much the same but with a worse mixer.

What were the first and last records you bought?

First: Depeche Mode – Violator
Last: Regelbau – Warm Regards 

If this mix was an edible thing, what would it taste like?

A Chinese eat-all-you can lunch buffet deal. Seems like a good idea when you're drunk, starts off ok, pretty hardcore in the middle, but feel you should stick with it all the way. Glad that it's over, then a trip to the toilet.
