city mists

For every mood and state of emotion there is a music to accompany. Here are a few small journeys, each containing a different style of smile or other expression. There are those deep house moments above, pointing to a particular part of the city, a certain bar and club and the after party to accompany.



… and then there is a different walk through town, it has its own steps … a hint of 2 step, a chilled and deep step or three and more, go on step it out …

As I have said before I used to live in Africa – I spent some time living and working in Maseru, Lesotho. That time and the people I was with remain with me to this day – a big hello to Ipa, Francis, Lebo, Motsi, Teenie and all the rest …

I would love to go back and visit more … the music and those memories are all I can enjoy at the moment.

new chillstep – design, audio

Posted on

waters and strings (0-00-19-19)

Designs to accompany the new Aromatiq mix.

The music as a whole – vocal deep dubstep, chillstep, intelligent atmospheric dnb has palpable layers and so a design scheme echoing that layering seems to fit. Nothing detracts from a project more than design which bears no real relation to what is presented. Imagery here is drawn from Mongolia, the palms nod elsewhere, water, desert, mountains all play a part.

Drawing on tunes from nExow, Ghosts of Paraguay, mPulse, Submotion Orchestra, Sean Mackey, Phaelah and more. This is a far more vocal oriented mix than others in the series.

I really do have a serious taste these days for the atmospheric, the intelligent, the emotive. There is music within each of these mixes and the mixes as a whole, of course, that is truly emotive, wistful and more. I still love my Bukem, Photek, Hospital records and more, the developments recently are interesting.
