First up this week Gonzo comes with one of his epic soundscape/composition/mix things, with an aquatic theme this time… Then we’ve got DJ Balele with some upbeat afro vibes & some Israeli Funk from Paris DJs & Jewpop.


I’ve said it before: I’m a big fan of Gonzo’s mixes for being much more than a series of similar-tempo-dancefloor-bangers and much more than the sum of their parts – this is the DJ as composer. This isn’t for dancing, this is for serious subaquatic sonic adventurers.

A mixtape based around the themes and surrealistic ideas of pioneering under-water film maker, Jean Painlevé. This mix was first presented live as part of a discrepant event at Taka café in Riga, during the summer of 2011.
