In many musical arenas, the DJ is called the Selector because their selections drive the vibe of whatever environment they are spinning at. Even with the presence and mainstream takeover of digital controllers, the medium for controlling the sounds is based on three hundred sixty degrees of rotation. Cutting, scratching, rewinding, and replaying within the context of the Selector’s skill set comes down to the fractional reduction of bits and pieces of that physical and literal cipher that is used to manipulate soundwaves. Selectors have been made organically and others through prosthetics, but the sonic performance is often the final judge on what is real and what is imagined.
The Mellotronix series features downtempo grooves for lounging and getting elevated to.
When I work I usually like to listen to music, but I mostly listen to instrumental beats, jazz, and such bc words can often derail me when I'm traveling at the speed of thought. I decided to start making mixes to share bc many people don't have access or the ability to find good downtempo artists or mixes focused on chill productivity rather than celebration. I'll be posting quite a few different styles of mixes in 2019 so stay tuned...
