"For this mix, I wanted to display the harder, darker, more frenetic tracks I've been enjoying; I've developed a real taste for deconstructed, percussive genres like Bérite Club and hard drum - shoutout ndegrandi for kickstarting this whole obsession. I'm interested in being more 'composerly' with my transitions: layering different textures, rhythms, and melodies and really letting the tracks play out and interact with each other. Here I used three decks, which was a fun challenge."
