luv422 Pillow Fort

Pillow Fort

when we were small nothing felt better than climbing into a comfy pillow fort made by our own design to fit us perfectly. everything was soft to the touch with no harsh edges, filled with low light and familiar smells. when things got stressful it was the perfect place to escape. this is an auditory pillow fort and you are welcome to hide out here, from the troubles of the day, for a short while.

luv418 The Caged Raver

The Caged Raver

this is a mixtape of new electronic music obtained in the last year, the majority of it presumably made under the shadow of the pandemic. after almost 2 years of varying stages of lockdowns, isolations, curfews, semi-freedoms and false hopes this is what it sounds like inside the mind of the caged raver. 2022 : it’s not about me, it’s about us.

luv414 The Dead Zone

The Dead Zone

in every urban center in the world, late at night after all the good people have gone to bed, The Dead Zone comes on the air. it can only be found at the bottom of the FM radio dial after all the busy city streets are empty. no one knows where the sound found at the low end of the FM dial emanates from but when it crackles to life it is the perfect audio companion for the desolation of urban sprawl. so if you find yourself out driving late at night and notice no one else around, wind down your FM dial and you may find yourself in The Dead Zone.

luv408 They Found Us

They Found Us

it was 20 years ago, way back in 2001. i was wandering around the countryside with my old buddies Pliskin and Dr. B.J. Harris. it was just after nightfall when the still of the evening was disturbed by the sudden appearance of a U.F.O. we stood there stunned for a moment, basked in the alien light that shone down upon us. the last thing i remember was B.J. saying “they found us.” then there was a bright flash that knocked me unconscious. i came to the next morning in the middle of a field alone, haven’t seen Pliskin or the Doctor since.

Liquid Sound Dimensions

artificial intelligence creating patterns & textures on liquid television for our come down pleasure. a sound that enveloped us in the early nineties as the Interchill brothers (UK & France), Gnat, Twin Peetz & Wig spun out the future while we melted into couches and rolled another joint. too up to be down and too down to be up. the atmosphere when we returned after the after party to a chill out room curated by our buddy Steve (pkls 4 ever), giving us a soft place to crash land, embraced in dawn’s twilight, wasted on Coloniale.

luv397 Well That was Fucked Up

well that was fucked up

“well that was fucked up” sums up 2020 pretty well. things felt uneasy at the end of 2019, like the cracks in the bottom of the basin were getting bigger and bigger, and things were getting heavier and heavier. something was about to give. that’s why i titled the first mixtape of last year “Hold On” because it felt like 2020 was gonna be a rough ride. as i started putting together 2021’s inaugural mix i intentionally chose only new music from 2020 and unintentionally created a mix that represented the crazy year that was. “well that was fucked up” is designed to help exorcise our collective ill feelings from 2020 by grooving them out of our system. clearing our minds and souls to help us better tackle the challenges that lay ahead. may it help you power the future.

Flummoxed

my mind has been a jumble of confusion. so i took the swirling sounds, off-kilter rhythms and odd sonic signatures running loose in my mind and, with a synthesis of new and old, created a timeless void where we can go when we need to lose ourselves.
