A special guest-mix series where DJs are invited to create a soundtrack for tomorrow's days. Next up: The journey of clubkid named SHINSHAN SALAZAR.
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?
This mixtape is a translation of my experiences, being a clubkid. This isn’t necessarily what I hear in the clubs, but more how I feel throughout. It’s getting ready, hearing nonsense about everything and everyone, dancing, adrenaline, violence, serotonin kicks, getting tired, going home, dropping on your bed, sleeplessness, etc. I believe the club scene itself can use some depth or something like that. It feels like people ain’t fighting for their shit. Me, Chris and some people around me could die for music, skip sleep and just dig until their eyes dehydrate. So yeah basically that.
What message does the music you play convey?
I guess it’s just a slice of life to be fair hahaha. If I played this for my close friends they would recognize and even relate to whatever I was playing. If I had to give it a message though: Don’t get caught in the bs, but don’t run away from it either. It will catch up to you. Confront it right on, at your own pace.
How is the mix reflecting your current music taste?
It’s really what I would like to hear in the clubs. It’s really wild and uncut. To be fair, my music taste has always been all over. I just like music a lot.
Who should release a new album/EP already?
I just hope someone or something comes with disgusting drums. Could be whatever: N.E.R.D., Timbaland, Bugz in the attic, Ossie. I think especially Ossie I guess. Me and my friends try to find a track like “ugly observation”, but there ain’t such a thing like that. It’s terrible, but fucking good.
What's magical about music?
It’s just everywhere. When you realize what would happen if you would take every single piece of music away, you value it even more.
What is your main source for finding new music?
How about everywhere, but Myspace? Too young for that shit I guess haha.
If the mix would be a soundtrack, what (kind of) movie/video/audio-visual content would support it best?
Probably some kind of new school “Cowboy Bebop”. Would be cool.
I truly hope this hits you, where it suppose to be hitting you. For me it did. It’s a ride, but just let it overwhelm you.
Much love :)
