#48 'Music from a Lost City'


Mixed by: Timo Facebook Soundcloud

First off, I'd like to send a big thank you to Henderick Mitchell for some of the music tips! His recommendations were the foundation for "Lost city". I submerged into an expanding network of very recent and unknown talent and discovered the most amazing tracks.

I honestly think "Lost city" is my best work so far. I did one take and the music clicked. But my mixing did not, so I thought I'd better do this one properly for once. As you can hear, this is a rehearsed mix.

I wanted to make a cinematic mix that would take you places, sounds corny but that is really what I had in mind. "Lost CIty" has a melancholic and moody storyline - with unpredictable twists thrown in hopefully. There's a good deal of variation and I tried my best to keep the mix dynamic rather than a medley of tracks.

Now, I'd really like to hear your opinion about this mix. I spent a considerable amount of time to make it just right, but now I'm a little unsure if I overdid it.

I really hope "Lost City" sparks some discussion. At least over the talent it showcases - I'm so happy I was able to discover the likes of The Oliverwho Factory (how on earth have I missed out on all their stuff for so long!? Extremely talented duo! ), Arto Mwambe (Henderick, I owe you big time), JuJu & Jordash, Vakula and the list goes on.

Now, go put on your headphones and let the music suck you into a city of sound...

The sole idea of this site is to promote a little lesser known underground electronic music producers, DJ's and labels. I usually gravitate towards ethereal, somewhat cosmic end of the electronic music spectrum and I warmly welcome all the surprises I'm thrown at by inviting international guests for the site.

DR started with deep house but has since broadened the scope to include all varieties of electronic music.

Recently, I've become involved in two labels. I head Echocentric Records and I'm the other half of Coymix Ltd together with Steffan T. The same basic ethos behind those too.
