Recent Mixes Added

•April 12, 2014 • Leave a Comment

MoonDropTwo recent mixes have been added to the archive. Taking inspiration from recent Chicago area shows, including Skinny Puppy’s performance in February and a rare appearance by Chris & Cosey back in January. We’ve had a memorable winter here in the windy city with temps reaching down beyond what’s typical for the north and south poles on several days. As Ogre might say, it was like a whirlwind blowing through the soul. The first mix, Fires of Industry, features a tune from Cevin Key’s Doubting Thomas project, with engineering contributions from Severed Head’s Tom Ellard on the track The Run. Also included is another SP spinoff project, Hilt, with a fantastic instrumental espousing grave wisdom. Chris & Cosey present new interpretations of classic Trance material on a release offered during the tour with a remix of Cowboys in Cuba. Follow the thread through soundtrack material courtesy of Coil, splashes of melody from The Orb, even a track from Death In June containing Orb-esque elements. Severed Heads, David Lynch, and Lassigue Bendthaus (23rd anniversary edition of Matter) also make appearances. Finish it out with brand new uplifting tracks from Padmasana and ISHQ.

Next in the mix queue is Leidenfrost which, after a brief rhythm+noise intro session, mellows quickly into mostly beatless deep space explorations featuring brand new material from STL, S.E.T.I. (aka Lagowski), cv313, Skyscaper, and recently remastered monochrome ambient soundscapes originally produced for Lustmord’s Side Effects label back in the golden age of exploratory ambient electronics, manifesting in the form of Superficial Depth’s (aka Atom™) Digital Superimposing. Additional aural navigations provided by Fluxion, Woob, Rapoon, Pub, Arovane, Jet Chamber, and Tetsu Inoue.

BladeRunner1In autumn 2005 I put together a mix intended to sync up to the Ridley Scott Director’s Cut edition of Blade Runner. That mix covered only the first half of the film however, while this brand new version has been expanded and re-tooled to include new music from the last nine years since the first Mixes for Films was posted. This new version is also intended to sync with the latest version of the film, The Final Cut edition which made appearances in theaters for the 25th anniversary back in 2007. I only used music which sounded likely to exist in the 2019 futurescape envisioned, and sounds which fit the overall tone and mood of the movie’s genre-defining cinematic visuals. There are also a few A/V synced surprises in store for those willing to look for them. The nearly 30 tracks in Dangerous Daze carry you through the entire story and into the final credits, unpause mix when the green tree logo disappears for optimum sync!

20140221-142310.jpgHeadphones will be a big draw this year at Chicago’s annual Axpona event. A promising new component has been added to the show, called the Ear Gear Expo (EGX). Sennheiser is sponsoring the event’s first headphone-centric Silent Disco, and Germany’s Physiks will be showing off a pair of half-million dollar, 1,000+ pound loudspeakers.
