Back To The Freezer

Freezer was one of the first chill out / trip hop / electronic listening music / ambient drum’n'bass nights in Montreal. these are some of the records i was playing back then, alongside fellow residents Wig (now Ghostbeard) and Andrew Interchill. i’ve just added 20 years experience and an extra turntable to the mix. oh yeah, this is also the 4th anniversary mix for this site, thanks for listening.

Frayed Edges Run Ragged

sometimes i feel that we are very close to the breaking point and all i can see are the cracks. this mix of experimental noise, hardcore, modern classical, free jazz, electronics and found sound illustrates this state of mind. it’s dedicated to those shouting in the wind.
