Heathered Pearls: Colossal Secret Mix

Posted by Jakub

Cover Art For Heathered Pearls - Colossal Secret



I haven’t done continuous mixes in awhile but I just finished 3 completely different ones that i’ll be sharing in the next 2 months, here’s the first one I did for Incase, its strictly on the melodic side house and techno, would love your thoughts.

Colossal Secret compiles a selection of tracks that remind me of the days I DJed an on going weekly with Matthew Dear (Ghostly International) and Ryan Elliott (Spectral Sound) in Ann Arbor, MI in the early 2000s.

Like most mixes of mine they vary in the specific genre, some have been more representative of the slow disco I usually play out or the some are more low level ambience that are similar to my production but this one is special, its been in my system and it focuses on the dance floor and what I think is a passionately filled collection for people that love the deeper melodic end of House and Techno.

Mixed/Recorded on Technic MK1200′s and a Allen & Heath XONE:22

LORN & DOLOR

Lorn fans: if you haven’t already, you need to go and download his latest free offering in the Lorn & Dolor beat-tape series. If you’ve been following these then you only need to download part IV – otherwise hit the PARTS I-IV link for the whole thing zipped up.

The series is compilation of unreleased material and sketches all with Lorn’s usual HEAVY hitting dark yet ethereal and beautiful sound. It might not flow like a ‘mix’ (it clearly wasn’t intended to), but it’s surprisingly cohesive, given the jumpy/cut nature of some of the transitions.

I’m not sure who this ‘mysterious’ Dolor fellow is – but judging from the severe lack of info on him online and the similarity in sound, I’m thinking it’s just an alias of Lorn himself. Then again, in 1996 when I first heard Feed Me Weird Things I was absolutely convinced Squarepusher was Richard D. James.

Oh, I also though Burial was Four yet. So there’s that.

Ghostly International FvF Compilation


Here’s a compilation I put together on Ghostly’s behalf for the Freunde von Freunden blog. It’s comprised entirely of Ghostly releases. Honestly it’s not hard to put something like this together, considering the depth of the Ghostly catalog. Endless gems. My three faves from this one are Shigeto’s Ann Arbor Part 1, Tycho’s Melanine, and of course Dabrye’s We’ve Got Commodity. I’ll never forget previewing One/Three on the busted turntables at Kim’s Video in NYC in 2001.

Freunde von Freunden is an online “interview magazine that portrays people of diverse creative and cultural backgrounds in their homes or within their daily working environments.” The latest feature is none other than Ed Templeton and his wife at their home in Los Angeles. Amazing. They have also been running a ‘mixtape’ series for some time, they are now on #29.

Brian from The Ghostly Store made this happen, and this is the second time Sam, Brian and I worked on a compilation together: the first was for Moss in 2006, delivered on a USB stick. (it was the FUTURE)
