Beatzcast #5: Will Simmons

The out-and-out wonder of dance music has often been the result of the live DJ set, whether it be at a club, bar, rave, house party or festival. The same sense of spontaneity and crowd interaction has never quite been reproduced in a studio, on a LP or single, or in a music video. This mix is my way of trying to recreate the excitement of a live set, where the sum is much greater than the parts, and anything can happen.

01: Four Tet - Pockets (Minimal Version) [!K7]
02: Mr. Oizo - Nazis [F Communications / PIAS]
03: Justice - Let There Be Light (Demo) [Ed Banger / Vice]

In the Mix: Michael F. Gill - “Romance Drones”

The inspirations for this mix were the recent singles Cosmic Sandwich and Odyssey by Steve Barnes, which showcase a new and interesting tangent on the basic micro/electro-house template. It was an epic, sprawling sound that combined the romantic melancholy of Michael Mayers Immer with a heavy psychedelic bent that engulfs you through a series of visceral repetition, trippy vocals, and wandering stratospheric synths. Ive picked tracks here that complement this sound, and sequenced them in such a fashion that the music becomes more open and extroverted as time passes. Hence, things begin with the misty noir-ish glimmers of Anders ilar, move through the brisk druggy bliss of Ewan Pearsons Closer Musik remix, and end up with some Italo/Metro Area influenced tracks by Jersey Devil Social Club and Justus Kohncke. This being the internet and not the club, Ive taken the time to do some re-edits of the tracks in order to emphasize the themes of the mix. I hope you enjoy it.

01. Anders ilar - Treasure Gardens (Echocord)
02. Lucien-N-Luciano - Lilou Swan (Klang Elektronik)
