A fresh Skylarking mix called Witch Smoke. A mix of pre-releases, current releases and re-releases, starting off with heavy beats blending into Free Jazz and diversions into Orcadian Folk and Neoclassical with the usual twists, we hope you dig this Skylarking groove.
Moods. It’s all about the moods. This month we feature a pairing known as Isolated Community heavily throughout the mix, for no other reason than I think they’re brilliant and that the tracks chosen here act perfectly as waymarkers as we move through a host of ups and downs, bumps, scrapes, highs and lows from a collection of other high priests & priestesses of the dark electronic and folk arts. All thrillers, no Killers.
Sunken Paths Part 2 sees Darren venturing further in the sonic woodlands, taking in sounds from experimentations with theremins, through gentle ambient textures, mournful yet uplifting neufolk tales and ethereal high-pagan church rock, before getting lost down an electro-hauntology fork and ending up somewhere in Dutch Punkland. Can this be pulled off in the space of an hour? We’ll let you decide.
