It’s exciting to see techno making a comeback, returning to the dark emotions of its roots. After experiencing some amazing parties recently, several top DJs have reinvigorated and inspired me as an artist. This mix honors those DJs.
The Village is a deep, tech-driven offering with several interesting twists and turns as well as a few ‘Madoka Clouds’ for good measure. The mix was recorded exclusively for the Frisky Radio Loves NYC feature on Frisky Radio.
Although partially a live recording from Endo-Exo in Jacksonville Beach, Florida, the set was re-recorded back in NYC based on the original sounds from the August 8, 2008, party. Yes, that’s a 08-08-08 party!
Clocking in around three hours, the more I listen to The Second Room the more I realize this particular story can actually be divided into three 1-hour increments and still sound like three individual mixes.
I sat down to create Yesterday’s Gone with specific emotions already floating around in my mind. I recorded several killer mash-ups prior to making the full mix and incorporated two of those into this mix.
Listening to Modified Mind again, it seems incredibly moody to me. I love the pace of this mix. Although it’s a bit slower and steadier than my previous mixes, it pops with massive amounts of creative crunch.
