A special guest-mix series where DJs are invited to create a soundtrack for tomorrow's days. Next up: Melbourne-based DJ, producer and Inner Tribe label head honcho Inkswel.
Every Mixed Feelings podcast is accompanied by a few questions that provide a little insight to the DJ and the mix they've prepared for us and for you.
Which feelings do we find bottled in this mix?
At the time I was in a state of reflection, we are in a transitional space right now. The world is facing a challenge of immense division and disconnection. Politics are now centre stage and cancelling views that we might find abnormal has become the norm, freedom of speech and expression a few years ago seemed so open but not it seems the opposite. We are told to make one choice or the other. I find this polarising and a real distraction from the beauty of life and living in the moment, I guess I wanted to invoke emotion of different moods with this mix and let us all be in the moment for a small amount of time.
What message does the music you play convey?
How is the mix reflecting your current music taste?
My music taste is as broad as my taste in food, I like a little of everything in varying degrees of saltiness, sweetness and spicyness. A good meal is like a good mix, its balance.
Who should release a new album/EP already?
I would love that dutch crew LA MELODIA to reunite. Thats some real magic right there. And Kindred Spirits needs to re-start as a label, it changed my life..love to KC!
If the mix would be a soundtrack, what (kind of) movie/video/audio-visual content would support it best?
A tall glass of pineapple juice on the beach, sandy feet and a sunset.
Everyone needs to get ready for a producer from my home town called FUNKWIG, one day that dude will be famous I swear, next level beat maker.
