Episode LVII: Saturday to Sunday [Guest Mix by Phosphene]

This week’s episode of Sonic Landscapes is brought to us by Phosphene, known to his comrades in Ithaca as Gabe Salvatierra. Phosphene, a talented DJ who I first heard spinning records a few weeks ago at a party, has curated a solid mix of some of his favorite tracks to share with us all. With this mix, Phosphene has created a soundtrack to a typical weekend night–full of energy, excitement, and the inevitable crash.

He writes of this mix:

“During the course of a typical Saturday night out, your mood and state of mind can fluctuate wildly. Your soundtrack to these different stages of the evening should follow appropriately. This mix seeks to take the listener from the start of the pregame all the way through to the wee hours of Sunday morning (and through my range of tastes at the moment as well). There’s some slower beat-driven jams from the West Coast to get you going, hip-hop infused bangers for when things really pick up, bouncier house when you just wanna dance, deeper grooves for after hours, and a few slow burners at the end when things are winding down and you’re on the pull.”

Episode LIV: Debrief Mix

Sonic Landscapes welcomes everyone back from a long and hopefully relaxing break with this hour-long mix. “Debrief Mix” resembles the transition from the hustle and bustle of the semester, represented musically with the persistent and somewhat manic rhythms of Aphex Twin and Amon Tobin’s drum and bass experimentation, to the slow pace and pleasantries of domestic life, represented by the spacey meanderings of ASC & Ulrich Schnauss and Nicolas Jaar, to finally a state of pleasant excitement for the return to routine with the jazzy / hip-hoppy soundscapes of Shabazz Palaces and Karriem Riggins.
