The distinguished DJ Rich-Ears returns to the ASIP mix arena alongside San Francisco’s very own enigmatic chill-out curator, DF Tram for a very special collaborative and mesmerizing audio journey.
Discussing the mix over a beer in Amsterdam last month, DJ Rich-Ears described his collaboration with DF Tram as something he has long been looking forward to. After ‘enjoying Dylan’s fine sounds for quite a while, a project alongside a gifted and talented producer and musician’ was always going to be something special for Rich-Ears.
The master of themed mixes (DJ Rich-Ears has a superb ‘Perfect’ series) and DF Tram ended up shooting sections of the mix back and forth, across the Atlantic to reach a two-hour orbit of meandering, mystical, eclectic ambient and space themed music, that stands true to its emphatic curators. The original intention of this mix was to produce a Hitchhikers Guide To The Galaxy’ themed set, and a few of the samples are still evident – making it a fitting tribute to Douglas Adams (HHGTTG Author), who died ten years ago to this day.
From a legendary wordsmith to musical legends; Lamb, Carl Sagan, Wagon Christ, Tangerine Dream and Giorgio Moroder sit amongst some rare gems and personal favourites. Vocal samples form the glue and intro the unexpected twists and turns. It’s a mix which needs your full attention and two hours of musical indulgence will leave you reflecting on a mix which has taken you to the moon and back.
As an extra treat, Hikaru Digi has provided some special Lunar Fizz artwork to complete a trio of talent for us all to enjoy.
