MIDWEEK MIXXXTAPES: LOWLIGHT / BEHLING & SIMPSON / ANDY H

A dark ambient shortwave excursion to open from Lowlight, followed by a chunky slowhaus selection from Behling & Simpson and some classic boombap from Andy H

lowlight

I’m really feeling the theme of this mix:

Shortwave radio signals spread across the planet, the signal fades in & out, washes of static mix with music & voice, creating an eerie mashup of music & electronics.

This is the latest mix in a series, going back years, that utilizes shortwave broadcasts & music that already has a noisy, grainy type of tone. The combination of sounds has an weird feel to it, transporting the listener around the world and back again.

As with the other shortwave mixes, this one makes use of source material from Myke Dodge Weiskopf & his website of shortwave recordings found here… http://www.myke.me/wordpress/

…because I used to spend hours at the dial of my AM radio tuning in and out of the most faintly heard snatches of music & speech which felt like they were being broadcast not just from some far away country but also from some far distant time, future echoes. Lowlight does an excellent job of recreating that feeling with this incredible mix.
