Mixed Feelings | Sjanson

A special guest-mix series where DJs are invited to create a soundtrack for tomorrow's days. Next up: Sjanson blessing us by sharing an almost 3 hour(!) during sneak peak into his catalog. This one will bring you soulful hip-hop to extensively nod your head on as well as fast-paced heavy jazzhitters - expect anything and enjoy!



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?

Mixed Feelings, haha. I find it hard picking on style for something, so in preparation my mind went everywhere and that ended up in this mix.


What message does the music you play convey?

I hope that the music I play reaches the soul of the listener. That's what happens to me and I'd love to be able to pass that on to whoever's listening. Otherwise I want to make people groove and dance.

How is the mix reflecting your current music taste?

I think it reflects my taste perfectly. This mix misses some harder hip-hop compared to what I listen to on a daily basis, but apart from that it's identical I'd say.


Who should release a new album/EP already?

I'm really curious about what Jarreau Vandal is going to release this year! I've heard some great snippets. Apart from that I'm pretty content right now with everything out there, it's way too much already to keep up with haha!


What's magical about music?

Wow, so much! For me it's the most important thing. It can enhance or counter emotions, it can connect people and it can touch souls. I could go on and on about music, but that's the short answer.


What is your main source for finding new music?

My network! That includes streaming services and social media to but going to my friends sets in the city is a big one too!


If the mix would be a soundtrack, what (kind of) movie/video/audio-visual content would support it best?

I thought about my mix like something that represents a day in the life. So I'd say something like that; following a person throughout their day.



Thanks Steppin' Into Tomorrow and Lucas for the opportunity!

Although I struggled with this one a lot, it was such a nice experience making this mix.

Next to that, for everyone that reads this, do what you love, be happy and be nice to others.


Love!

Sjanson
