Chillstep – telling a story

Posted on

All good music tells a story one way or another. It may take you through a series of emotional changes, give you a palette of feelings, well coloured or subtly shaded. It may just be a suitable narrative. It may suggest a move from one emotion to another through its chord sequence and key changes. A good mix takes you on a journey. It moves you from one place to another, even if it is chilled mix. It may just make one suggestion after another, point one way then somewhere further.

and then …

there is music and there are mixes for times of day and night – chillstep ranges from the chilled after party, the Sunday after the heavy, heavy night, sat with friends taking it easy, to early evening, nearly mid-week readying for the hard night to come, or thoughtful busy or not-so-busy times …

bruk, or broken beat, nujazz, nusoul, wine bar 2 step, with that common to both intelligent drum and bass does a little of this but it is so much more of the bar music, perhaps mid-week again, less wasted in energy

and if there are feelings, thoughtful moments, hints of imagination, journeys, or at least a hint of movement within there may be

Textured red – the new mix on mixcloud

sb2 bannerfhav3

New music video and a new mix – the mix contains a couple of tunes from me – silverback dj. This work is dedicated to my friends at the Redhouse – my favourite small venue in Sheffield. It is also our youngest’s birthday coming up – Tyrone. The mix has a fair amount of content from Jack Dixon and Volor Flex – two great artists. Also included are a series of mockups and designs for the whole of the aromatiq revisited project – chillstep, deep dubstep and beyond.

There is something about chillstep that combines so much –

  • sunrise
  • sunset
  • quiet romance
  • thoughtful chilling
  • the dance floor and the lounge
  • home after the party
  • a walk in woods, fields, over hills, to water flowing
  • the mid-week and the weekend
  • the expectation of the party
  • someone new and old friends
