The “Castaway ” podcast mix series was conceived today after reflecting on a comment by Movement in Sound on my Aural Imbalance teaser mix (link included below).
Music with “no destination”, that is not in a hurry, nor is it intended to do anything other than “keep you travelling”.
Society and culture has a serious problem in the sense that they are designed to make you focus on politics, ego, fame, accumulation and all that.
Our spiritual essence is lost and we, as a whole have been fragmented.
We have lost our focus on the present- the “now”, and the “suchness” and “isness” of the moment.
My recent discovery of the “deep movement of sound culture”, is a small miracle for me, it has helped me in many ways, personally and professionally. I have also joined forces with labels and artists who are fast becoming valued friends.
They send me tracks, give of their friendship and support unconditionally, and I wish to reciprocate.
Sure, I can blog and raise awareness, and promote in other ways, but how can I best represent such artists and labels sonically?
I can produce tracks, but that will take time to realise due to the pressures of my new living situation. But as a long standing Dj and journalist, I can combine both!
Hence “The Castaway Podcast Mix series”…
The idea is that fortnightly ( maybe even weekly), I will host a mix on my soundcloud showcasing the talents of artists and labels that I support.
Their stature goes right up to the top of the food chain and I feel privileged to be associated with them.
Each mix will be designed to take you to a far away place, you are drifting and end up in a still, eternal place, pretty much like a “castaway” on a peaceful deserted island somewhere 🙂
If you make deep music, do send it to me for consideration. You can contact me via this blog or, on twitter : @zaclaurent1
and the soundcloud account of the same name…
Next week we kick off the series with exclusive tracks by Okee and some new ones from Movement in Sound.
