In this, the 37th installment of our increasingly itinerant, wayward series, we are dearly touched to found the new year by offering a mix composed by the Denver-based DJ Nico Tobon.
In the DJs own words:
“Over the last couple years I have become fascinated by our use of language and I wanted to explore enunciation in particular within this mix. How words, however meaningless, take on new meaning when they are spoken. Some of the vocals used in these tracks, despite being unintelligible, can be quite evocative. To be able to derive meaning from hearing a foreign language or something algorithmically generated suggests a deeper connection to each other as humans as well as to the abstract representations of ourselves. More than anything, this mix is simply characteristic of my current musical interests -- rhythmically intriguing, textural, and always rooted in the psychedelic.”
