^ video or stream

Roman Flügel is quickly becoming a legend, his last 10 years have been covered everything from a #1 dance single to running the successful Playhouse label and everything you can imagine in-between.

In this mix he rides in the weird world of minimal acid to deep spacey jack, a perfect opportunity to get a taste of what the late night brings out in a carefully crafted experienced German DJ.

Unreleased Four Tet 1997 – 2001

four tet

I don’t want to say this was the golden years for this style of music but it kind of was, there was this honesty to it, producers weren’t doing it to share it or to become famous, there was an orb of innocence to it. Note the freedom of not being given some sort of build but instead you get pauses with detailed ambience, soo pleasant.

Heathered Pearls – Stadiums & Shrines Mix

Posted by Jakub



I did a mix and interview today for Stadiums & Shrines, the mix includes some exclusive edits of Com Truise and Black Marble along with some favorites from Byrne & Eno, radio recording of Panda Bear, and kicks off with OMD.

The guys over at S&S have great questions and post huge versions of images so its a great nice blog to explore. Its pretty much the first i’ve ever talked about my design and influences, let me know what you think.

Future Totems is playing right now (above). Where is this mix coming from…what kind of space does it live in?

Future Totems is similar to some of my other mixes which are about communicating the beauty of how I see sound expanding slowly. I see it living in a naturally carved out, small cove full of very simple, large vegetation surrounding a huge slow-moving body of water; it’s a calm place yet there’s plenty of moving parts, and once in awhile everything aligns and you get these still moments.
