Goodbye 2012

Twenty-twelve has produced another bumper crop of excellent dance music.  The American public has finally caught on as well, which is great news. My only regret is that I couldn’t get my hands on a great Gangnam Style remix. Ahh well. Guys, this year has been pretty wild for our family, so I felt some intensity was required of the musical variety. Please enjoy responsibly.

New mix – Aurora Borealis

We have 2 sons, and early next week we’re expecting our first daughter to be born. During the last week I’ve had a few profound moments of being overwhelmed by sudden rushes of emotion as I think about this new member of our family. Things like washing tiny pink clothes, cleaning the house and making space for a tiny bed have brought me to a halt as waves of feeling wash over me. I haven’t experienced anything quite like this before, and as I sat listening to Underworld yesterday I felt it might be appropriate to try and encapsulate some of that emotion into music for you all.

This mix is not dedicated to my daughter. It’s not for her perse, rather, it is something of an attempt to capture the myriad of emotions I’ve been processing this week. That makes it suitable for me… and anyone who’s interested in my emotional (and perhaps my metaphysical) composition.

I’ve titled it Aurora Borealis, and I dug deep into some old records for this one. The track list might include hints to the name of our daughter… or then again it might not. Enjoy.

Beatitudes Volume 6

Last year my midi controller was damaged, and so I did a bit of mixing in software only. I sent it off for repair this year, and after months off hassle it was finally fixed. To avoid frustration (because I couldn’t use my gear), I decided not to listen to dance music this year. My neighbour, who is a fantastic music snob and art historian helped me immensely, plying me with music from Midlake, Bon Iver, My Morning Jacket, Sister Flo, and more. It’s been a great year of music, but I almost forgot how much joy dance music gives me. I started dipping my toes back in a month or two ago, and now you finally get to enjoy some more music.
