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.

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!”

Jam Karet (Elastic Time) (Mix)

“Jam Karet” is Bahasa Indonesia (Indonesian language) meaning “Elastic Time” (or “Rubber Hours”).
To me, this concept also applies to mixes that include ambient and drone fragments… where the listener gets immersed in sound in such a way that all notion of time is lost; where music could last for minutes, or for hours.
