sunday sounds: c_olvrin


this week we've got another special sunday sounds recorded live in japan. today's mix is taken from the mariana:m2 party last december, which featured two ssg artists, cio d'or and mike parker. warming up the place was c_olvrin, known to friends and family as craig. i should state up front that craig is a friend. this is not the reason i'm posting this mix, however. i'd been hearing good things from friends about his music for a while, but to be honest, i was a bit sceptical. i was wondering whether my friends were just being kind because he is a mate. well, after hearing this recording it was clear to me that this wasn't the case. this is genuinely good: deep, careful, thoughtful music that you feel. and what's more, it is really perfect warm up music for someone like cio. one worrying trend i've noticed is warm up DJs not knowing their job and their (crucial) role in the party. so sets like this always make me happy. and it is especially heartening to know that you can hear sounds like this in tokyo. this is further evidence for me that the scene in tokyo is heading in the right direction.

enough talking. here are some perfect downbeat electronics for a sunday. enjoy.

c_olvrin - warm up @ m2, tokyo 5.12.09

big thanks to dave from mariana, and to craig for the excellent mix. craig is also producing some really nice music and co-founded a new label called continental drift. worth keeping an eye out for. and for all our friends in tokyo, craig will be playing at the next mariana party on 13 march at module along with another ssg artist, delta funktionen. really looking forward to it. see you there!

to all that care, happy valentine's day, and for everyone: have a good sunday!
