Bipolar (HC-PvC) (Mix)

Bipolar

What better way to start a new year with a brand new mix?!?

Mix-wise, 2017 was a quiet year: it has been quite some time ago since I published my last ‘real’ mix (Mind Awake, Body Asleep) – partly due to concentrating on DreamScenes,  which got a re-birth as a monthly radio show on Concertzender.nl).

But in the end of 2017 a long-standing plan finally materialised: a ‘collaboration mix’ with  Mike ‘Headphone Commute‘ Lazarev!
It is especially nice to start 2018 with this occasion, since Headphone Commute celebrates its 10th anniversary this year!

We had no clear concept for this mix when we started, other than ‘each turn takes 5 minutes, we’ll stop at 60, and we’ll see where it gets us’. We were unaware of each other’s tracklist (apart from what our ears told us).
The result is a thrilling ride, where each part is a reaction to the previous section.
Not exactly what we’d call an ‘ambient’ mix, because it’s extremely dynamic. Sections may range from deep sleep sections to exuberant enthusiasm – hence ‘Bipolar’.
It’s like a full life’s story comprised in one hour..

Take a look at the tracklist below (51 Track samples in 60 minutes) and get ready for a fascinating ride. And let us know what you think!

This mix is also published on Headphone Commute
Thanks to Mike Lazarev for all the fun!
