A special guest-mix series where DJs are invited to create a soundtrack for tomorrow's days. Next up: Amsterdam-based selector and genuine music enthusiast Oria Bela.
Every Mixed Feelings podcast is accompanied by a few questions that provide a little insight into the DJ and the mix they've prepared for us and for you.
Which feelings do we find bottled in this mix?
My musical journey today and tomorrow are about Love and Freedom, I hope you will enjoy it as much as I did compiling it :)
What message does the music you play convey?
Joy - Love - Warmth, I play from the heart and with my soul I hope it's received that way. There is something profound and magical about sharing the music I love.
How is the mix reflecting your current music taste?
The selection I have put together for you has a Deep & Soulful House direction, some songs are heavily influenced by South Africa.
Who should release a new album/EP already?
Bjork - King Britt - Jill Scott - to name a couple :)
What's magical about music?
Music is a healer - Music brings people together - Music is love - Music is life
What is your main source for finding new music?
Streaming services - Bandcamp - Films / Documentaries - Sharing with Friends - Record shops ....
If the mix would be a soundtrack, what (kind of) movie/video/audio-visual content would support it best?
Travel shows - Dance Videos - Anything to do with contemporary art.
I take pride in selecting my music whether I am playing, recording, streaming, dancing or listening, it's an art form that I respect a great deal.
Thank you for the opportunity. Blessings to all!
