A Thick Mist

A Thick Mist (July 19, 2017)

Lots of premium mixing in this one: Growing & Milton Feher’s guided relaxation techniques, Watusi ceremonial drums & old New England chorals, Aeronaut & Vietnamese song poems, and Rale & Abraham Brun’s cantorials

A weird thing happened with this recording. None of the sounds from the microphone got recorded (yes the mic was turned on). I trimmed out all of the talk breaks because without vocals this episode would’ve just had Ash Koosha’s “Feather” on low volume repeating every 30 minutes or so. Also, I had to mix this down to mono because the turntables were only coming out of one channel. Bad day for recoding, I guess.

A Thick Mist (July 12, 2017)

I forgot how massive that Cough song is. Wish it was pressed at 45 so I could slow it down even more. The recording of a surgery mixed with Aquarelle and Locrian/Mamiffer is A+ in my opinion. Also don’t miss the new Ustalost vinyl from Gilead. So sexy.

The mask in the photo comes with the Palestine & Schaefer collab on Desire Path, designed by Chris Koelle, so naturally I had to put it on while I was spinning that and some Bengali tunes.
