Radical Candor (Mix)

The mix title, Radical Candor, comes from the (management) philosophy that argues that feedback (on behaviour) is most effective if it is ‘challenging’ but at the same time shows that you ‘care’.
I felt there was a resemblance: the mix is ‘caring’ at times but can also be quite ‘challenging’ to the listener. At least, that was my intention. Now you decide.

Mind Awake, Body Asleep (Mix)

The moment I heard Rami Malek whisper “Mind awake, body asleep” (Mr Robot, series 2) I knew this would be the inspiration for a new mix.
A mix about half-sleep, lucid dreaming impressions… ungraspable images… and about “letting go”.
After all, Mr. Robot’s tagline was “Control is an Illusion”.

This mix was created for – and is co-hosted on – Headphone Commute.

Secret 41 (Mix)

Because of the drones, atmospheric field recordings and insect sounds, this mix will be labeled as an ‘ambient’ mix by most listeners.
And of course it is…. but at the same time it isn’t.
It simply isn’t ‘unobtrusive’ enough to be ‘ambient’.

An hour-long journey of scene changes, meandering between *Kitsch* and *Kult* – a bit more ‘psychedelic’ than ‘ambient’, in fact.

FrostbYte (Daniel Blinkhorn) – One Dog Night

Discover hitherto unknown sonic regions of Svalbard (Spitsbergen) with the acousmatic compositions from Daniel Blinkhorn, a.k.a. FrostBYte
Available in Stereo as well as in stunning full surround versions.

The title ‘One Dog Night’, refers to ‘an adage once used to describe how cold the temperature could drop at night. If it was a particularly cold night, it may have been appropriate to have one, two, even three of your dogs on the bed with you to help keep you warm as you slept!’

Entropic (Mix)

…. slowly evolving to a state of inert uniformity …. retracing information that was lost from the message … searching for the uniformity in what seems to be randomly disordered …

This mix is published simultaneously on Headphone Commute:
“You’re in for a treat!”
