Back in 2007, Ryan Elliott was so enamored with Donnacha Costello's 12" Color Series, that he created a mix comprised entirely of the catalog using original songs and his own edits.
Since then the mix has been hiding out on a few blogs and many of our own iTunes libraries. Until we got an email from Ryan wanting to get it back up and out to everyone. We hope you enjoy.
Here's an excerpt from a longer piece about the Color Series from Resident Advisor:
"Ryan Elliott of Spectral Sound is one of Costello's most vocal supporters, even going so far as to make a DJ mix consisting only of Color Series tracks. He explains how even three years on, he still is a huge fan of the series: "I remember being totally excited about the analog hypnotic sound that the Color Series has now come to represent. Once I heard ‘Blue’ (the first of the series), I was anxiously awaiting each new color, and I was never disappointed. The songs are just as relevant today as the day they came out. The Minimise Color Series is the perfect mix of concept, art, and dancefloor utility. Timeless is a word that is overused, but this series is the definition of that to me"."
