DeeplyMoved’s Top 25 Mixes of January
My selections for January were pretty heavily influenced by being immersed in Tulum for the entire month. Expect hypnogrooves, ethnovibes, tribal jungle percussion, middleasterny exoticism, mystical shamanica, and more of the sort. And lots of invented portmanteau genre descriptors, courtesy of me, for my own classification/amusement.

Urban Cosmonaut Radio – UCR #015 by JAVID
Blown. Away. That’s what happened to me when I listened to this the first time, the second time, and the 300th or so time. Ethno-hypnotic grooves and slightly trippy tones of melodic melancholia. There’s not a single dud production in here that doesn’t stun, every moment of this journey is captivating and engrossing. Incredible. Also, you need to listen to his Travel Diary (Part 1).

Montagssorbet mit Laut & Luise – #045: WIDE AWAKE *live
Wide Awake is the composite effort of Ninze, Okaxy, and Niju, all stellar producers individually so it’s no surprise that the fruit of their collaboration is this amazing. Beautifully trippy, moodily mesmerizing, a perfect soundscape to float away in. Ketapop poppin’. Repeat repeat repeat.

Jon Charnis – Robot Heart – Burning Man 2015
Amidst dusty blinding gales, after every last dwindling trace of the sun’s warmth had starkly dissipated from the frigid, sub-arctic desert night, Jon Charnis orchestrates a tale of burner spirit undefeated by the unforgiving harshness of the playa, with deep, melodic, and subtly trippy selections perfectly capturing the mood for the moment in this absolutely phenomenal set aboard the Robot Heart bus.

Deep and hypnotic yet dancefloor-oriented grooves channeling ethnovibes.
Nicola Cruz Comunite MIX – 13 / 01 / 2016
Upbeat, often jaunty rhythms heavily influenced by an array of worldly instruments, varied energies occasionally slipping briefly into broken beat. A fantastic kaleidoscope of energies.

Deep, moody grooves with darkly deluminated undertones. Dig the vibe on this.
berlin cocktail bar – hello strange podcast #160
Disclaimer, I don’t listen to much dub techno. But I stumbled upon this and was drawn in to a state of near hypnosis by the silky, ethereal atmosphere, slowly unfurling rhythm, and textured percussive detail. Really quite gorgeous, super relaxing and loungey. I rinsed this for nearly a day straight.

Métron Musik Mixtape – 010 – Batu Ozer
Middle-eastern-vibey grooves and melodies. This mix in particular seems to be mastered really nicely, sounds really nice on my monitors. I’m having a danceparty for one and trying to turn it off so I can move on to the next mix but I’m having a difficult time extricating myself.

Nadia Struiwigh – Perspektives#4
Very interesting electronikascapes.
But wait! There’s more! There’s always more.
“It is good,” she said upon reaching the end of the post. And indeed, it was good.
“This is great music journalism,” someone somewhere declared, nodding in agreement. “Yes, exceptional,” some other person definitely agreed. And a second Pulitzer Prize was awarded.
