A special guest-mix series where DJs are invited to create a soundtrack for tomorrow's days. Next up: One of The Hague's finest soulful selectors Osoul.
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?
Oof, good question! In order not to make it too spiritual, I’ve tried to translate love, joy and hope within this mixtape. In definition of music itself, it is an art form of expressions translated into whatever. And, you know, I think that’s different for everybody. But answering this question, I will define the feeling as uplifting. It makes me feel to move!
What message does the music you play convey?
As I already mentioned, this mixtape conveys love, joy and hope, but that doesn’t always have to be. It doesn't matter whether it's old or new music. I think I speak for a lot of DJs when I say sometimes you just play a song because it gives you goosebumps or that typical bass face when it hits you. The message I think I want to convey is that there is so much music from all over the world. Just open yourself up, listen and discover.
How is the mix reflecting your current music taste?
Man, to be honest, every time I surprise myself by re-discovering music again. That’s why it is hard to reflect my current taste in music in one mixtape. This mixtape is a glimpse of my current eclectic taste in music what I like to play and listen. So, if people are trying to describe my current taste in music, I think this mix will be their explanation.
Who should release a new album/EP already?
At this moment I don’t have any specific name in mind who should release a new album/EP. I like to just find out! So, surprise me!
If the mix would be a soundtrack, what (kind of) movie/video/audio-visual content would support it best?
Haha, I like this question. Probably it would be a visual with a lot of fast cuts and close-ups like the scenes in the Requiem for a Dream movie. If you don’t know what I mean, just check it out HERE.
Message to the world: Stay humble, surround yourself with good loving people, get out your bubble and get inspired! Oh, and I hope you enjoy this mixtape as much as I enjoyed making it.
