#49 'Some Other Day'


Mixed by: Timo

Sometimes it takes a while. You love a track but can't quite seem to find a slot for it in a mix. "I'll save it for later", but when the next time comes the same thing happens.

Who knows, maybe that certain track just cries out for equally classy company. This time, that one track is Rezkar's "Any Day Now" on Altered Moods Recordings. What a surprising, original and elevating piece of music! (Make sure you don't miss Rezkar's hot new 12" Mediterranean Affair also on AMR).

I think I managed to build this mix around it quite nicely. Starting up slowly with arppeggiated synth lines overlapping each other from one track to the other. Let's build some tension with more bass heavy tracks. And then, Rezkar heads for heights... when the last chords of Any Day now trail off, it's time to put on another gear and go for a tracky representation of modern house music with Cavalier & Anonym pulling the strings.

Other tracks worth a mention are a hot Andre Kroenert number from his forthcoming ep on Ostwind, beautiful 'Under the Palm trees' by Mo'Joe and Leonid's simplistic 'SH1' (...which makes me miss my Sh-3a).

Feels good to start the year with a new mix, hope you all enjoy it!
