PROJECTS THOUGHTS MUSIC ABOUT

"Remember, information is not knowledge; knowledge is not wisdom; wisdom is not truth; truth is not beauty; beauty is not love; love is not music; music is the best."
-Frank Zappa

The more I explore the vast world of music, the more I realize how little I understand. I try to ignore the arbitrary boundaries of music and pay attention to what seems most important to me – the musicality and creative intention of the artists. The collection here is my recorded history of exploring music and attempts at sonic assemblage. Songs with a denote my favorite mixes. Enjoy!

Nostalgia


Most things cycle, regurgitating the ghosts of past freshness every 20-odd years. Becoming acutely aware of the recycling of my nostalgic past brings up a flurry of emotions from youthful ecstatic experience to adolescent angst. I fell in love with house music in my late teens which provided some of my first transcendental/spiritual experiences, leaving me with an endless supply of warm and fuzzy feelings for the genre. House was also the first music to break my heart, as the scene I knew and loved crumbled and died. In the past few years I’ve seen a resurgence of the old house vibe I once knew, bringing out familiar smiling faces looking to catch another ride. This mix doesn’t really do the genre justice, but it’s clearly the catalyst.

I LOVE the nostalgia mix!!!
I listened to it twice in a row on Saturday.
What is that last track? So beautiful. And there are a couple other tracks that I especially love, but they are somewhere in the middle so I don’t know how I’d describe them to you. :)

Glad you like it :) Last song is School of Seven Bells - Half Asleep (Lusine Remix). I’ll try to get a tracklisting up soon.

Sweet mix. I love the second half. The whole thing is great - but it really gets going from the middle. Great work!

Talk about a resurgence of house… Hercules & Love Affair just did a video that made me do a double take:
