This is an ongoing audio series consisting of all types of selections across any format (vinyl, digital, tape, live, etc) and any genre or style, from those deep 4/4 floor fillers to soundscapes and on into to the weird and wonderful. Really, it’s any format or genre the curator wishes to share.
The main aim of this project is to showcase musical journeys and the feeling within the music, as chosen by the participants. Whether it be a set you would play to a packed dancefloor or those personal tracks you play alone in your headphones, it’s about sharing the sounds that matter to you.
“Well I didn’t really do a mix, I’ve never DJ’d in my life. Basically, I wrote and recorded an entire album. In the past month I made three full length ambient records, on the first two of those records I collaborated with other musicians. I wanted to take elements of what we did and expand on them, as well as exploring other sounds and ways of making. I use a lot of hardware as I find DAWs to be a bit too disembodied for the way I write music.
This “mix” contains a bit of everything I’ve been working with over the past year, piano compositions, hardware techno and fucked samples. Coming from experimental guitar music and performance art, I try and approach each track with a sense of liveness. Most, if not all tracks are recorded in one take with few overdubs. A lot of improvisation takes place, so mistakes are a plenty, which for me helps to ground the work, letting the listener know that these sounds are being made by a human with small clumsy hands.
