A special guest-mix series where DJs are invited to create a soundtrack for tomorrow's days. Next up: Groningen-based Loft resident DJ St. Bastian.
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?
Feelings of tranquillity and serenity. And gradually drifting into head nodding coolness.
What message does the music you play convey?
If I play in a club the message would be “feel the music and dance”. The music I play personally is often spiritual and intimate.
How is the mix reflecting your current music taste?
After Corona hit us I tend to focus less on dance floor music and more on jazz and listening to complete albums. This mix contains a blend of jazz with a little bit of neosoul, all from the last decade. Oh yeah; no song will be above 90 bpm.
Who should release a new album/EP already?
If the mix would be a soundtrack, what (kind of) movie/video/audio-visual content would support it best?
Woo, difficult question. With our regular club night Loft we actually had an amazing visual team for 5 years who truly set the right atmosphere with live VJ-ing during the night. But for this mix the first scene that comes to my mind is something from the movie La Grand Bellezza. The scene where lead character Jep Gambardella slowly walks through the streets of Rome in the early morning after a wild 65th birthday party. You can see he’s enjoying the little and simple things he’s observing; like a woman who’s picking lemons from a tree or birds flying around.
The vegetable celery is under-appreciated.
