While operating broadly within the world of deep, hypnotic techno, natural/electronic.system. present their own distinctive take on the sound. Antonio and Valerio have a special ability for building: allowing the music to breathe and slowly develop. There is a real beauty in the pace and manner in which natural/electronic.system. construct their DJ sets. This is what distinguishes their approach. You will have heard this in the other mixes they’ve done for us (mx23 and mx49), and this time you will hear it in a slightly different context, with the two each doing a separate mix. This week we have one from Antonio, and next week it will be Valerio’s turn.
Antonio wrote these words about his contribution:
This mix does not follow the classical natural/electronic.system. line. I like to think of it as a stream of consciousness, because that's essentially what it is; it reflects the sense in which it was built. The sequence was developed on different days, each track reflecting my mood at that moment on that day, so there is no one real common thread in the mix. After I listened back to it, I felt that somehow the mix reflects me over the past six months, a continuous succession of positive and negative emotions
Good listening, Antonio
Actually I don't completely agree with Antonio’s description. For me, it feels very cohesive, especially in its spirit. You can listen to the mix and make your own mind up. I have a feeling you are going to enjoy it. This beauty has been keeping me company over my travels the last few weeks, and I expect it to stay on my mp3 player for a long time to come. This one is definitely a keeper…
Thanks to Antonio for the mix. We now have a tracklist for it, which will be posted after the accompanying mix next week from the other half of natural/electronic.system., Valerio.
