The new micromix is up at The New Worck, you can tune in or go get it here!
I’m hosting an old mix by my friend Roy A.K.A. Rusto of The Powers; he’s spinning a subgenre of Drum & Bass that was popularized around the turn of the century called Neurofunk. This mix should definitely increase your Monday productivity! Have another cup of coffee and enjoy.
Start of a series of color pencil drawings called ‘Anti Heroes’.
About a week ago, “The Life Dramatic” was posted at The New Worck. You can now also listen to my new mix on MixCloud, check it out if you haven’t already!
I also made a short announcement for SoundCloud:
TLD was conceived after watching films from groundbreaking directors such as Wim Wenders, Jim Jarmush, David Lynch, Wes Anderson, Sofia Copolla and many others. I have always been obsessed with movie soundtracks; some time ago, it occurred to me it would be great to mix up my favorite soundtrack tunes into one big personalized soundtrack to the movie that is called life. After painstakingly digging up songs from the archives, a selection was made and I started mixing them into a narrative. Then I spliced in quotes and snippets from more films and layered the whole thing using lots of delay and reverb effects. The guys at The New Worck were kind enough to premier it on their brand spanking new site. Listen to David toying around with his mic, imagine Dustin being harassed and be reminded that that gum you like is going to come back in style.
Got this online for a bargain, a nice black hardcover second hand edition. You get to know a lot about the early sixties period during which he stayed in New York before he got famous. A lot of name checking of legendary and contemporary musicians on the Folk scene, but also references to Jazz musicians, Beat poets, art. An exceptionally long portion is spent on his cooperation with the producer Daniel Lanois. Somehow I doubt there’s going to be another volume, but that’s okay.
