Dark Christmas - Part 2

Mixes and sets

A dark/gothic Christmas mix for people who like dark folk, drone, gothic atmospheres and a touch of avant-garde. Liking Christmas is entirely optional. If you feel that Wham!'s 'Last Christmas' is where it's at for Christmas music, then you're probably not going to like this very much.

The picture *IS* Christmas-y; it is adapted from Wikipedia, and is of Krampus. See here:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Krampus

Part 1 is louder and more 'rock'. The two parts were made as one mix, but split up for people who might prefer one half to the other.

Cynical At Christmas Mix

Mixes and sets

A mix for people who don't enjoy Yule/Christmas/Solstice/etc.

THIS IS *NOT* SUITABLE FOR CHILDREN, and NOT SAFE FOR WORK. (Due to Beans on Toast, Tales from the Crypt, Tiny Tim, Zoogz Rift and Allen Ginsberg).

Vocal Beauty

Mixes and sets

After moving house, writing a book, coding a DVD, making furniture and getting over illness, I finally managed to get a mix posted again. Hopefully, things will continue to improve, and I'll get time to get some more up over the next few weeks...

Belladrum Space Mix 04 – Hippyish/Semi-Random

Mixes and sets

Circular mix made for the 'Space' theme for Belladrum festival 2011. This mix was made to be played on repeat on a CD, rather than just from beginning to end.

It was used in the Around group's stall to provide both atmosphere and entertainment. (The Around group are an eclectic fusion of artists, of which I am a part. There are around 20 or so people in the group, ranging from painters and sculptors to wood carvers and musicians. See http://www.around.org.uk/ for more information.)

Belladrum Space Mix 03 – Folky/Hippyish

Drinking The Blues

Mixes and sets

An upbeat blues flavoured compilation of drinking songs, to conjure up a good, old-time Friday night of drinking and getting drunk in a pub, bar or party... No depressing songs included!

Ghost Rider

Mixes and sets

This mix was made for a friend, and is centered around the Young Gods' cover of 'Ghost Rider'.

The idea was to evoke a particular part of the atmosphere of the song, and explore it as fully as possible.

It's intended to be a kind of gritty road trip through the dirty back roads of America - similar to Natural Born Killers if it was directed by Jim Jarmusch. Or Wim Wenders. Or something.

You can make up your own story to fit the lyrics and music, but I see it as a teenager running away from home ("America, America is killing it's youth"), who, after visiting some dark places (of the soul and the landscape), finally finds his home at the carnival.

I've only got an old vinyl rip of Swans' Love Will Tear Us Apart - sorry for the crackles. There's a similar version by Honeyroot at the end of the excellent UK film 'Red Road'.

 

Journey Through The Forest - Part 2

Mixes and sets

An ethereal trip through a spooky forest - there are some light, relaxing areas, but the general tone is slightly dark and occasionally discomforting (just like a real forest).

This mix was created for the Around Gallery in Strathpeffer, where the current theme is 'Forest'.

2011 has been declared 'International Year of Forests' by the United Nations; in honour of this, I plan to do a different forest-themed mix every month for the rest of 2011.

This is PART TWO of the FIRST MIX.

Part One can be found here:
