"The Oort Cloud is believed to be a thick bubble of icy debris that surrounds our solar system. This distant, predicted cloud may extend a third of the way from our Sun to the next star--somewhere between 1,000 and 100,000 astronomical units. We don't know exactly where it begins and ends."

Syncopated rhythms, dreamy synth textures, otherworldly noises and heavy basslines. I had planned a more straightforward mix but this just happened. The peak is No Moon's (@nomoontrax) "Acid IX", a track that blends everything you heard 60 mins before into cocktail of beautiful melodies served on the side of distorted kick patterns, a real masterpiece. Love it.

Looking back, 2018 was personally an enlightening year - it brought back the joy in music I had been missing for a long time. A big shout out to the crew who made it happen - you know who you are! And of course huge thanks to my lovely better half for the endless support.

If you're a long time DR listener you might notice that I'm drifting to a direction that is not strictly house music anymore. But I think there's a continuum in a series of deep emotive electronic music mixes here at DR.

If you enjoy it or if you don't, please leave a comment!
