Sonic Landscapes and GTMMMM [known to many of you as one of the fly DJs who performed at our first Party Function back in October–you can hear that set here] are excited to announce that on 3.27.13 we will be dropping a four hour mega-mix that will be recorded live tomorrow evening.
GTMMMM writes of the mix:
I don’t know about you folks, but it’s been a long-ass winter for me, one a bit too full of melancholia, heartbreak, self-loathing/doubt, exhaustion, and all the other wonderful side-effects of the dark northern days. Which is not to say it’s all been bad either–as often as I’ve felt totally unable to get out of bed I’ve felt totally fucking charged, insane, inspired. And it’s not over yet. Even so, it’s about time for a change, a change I decided to soundtrack, a thaw.
So this Friday night, I’ll be recording a four-hour live set that’ll be a combination of DJing and live electronics totally running the gamut in terms of genre and feel. I’m modeling it loosely after the sorts of opening sets you might here at Berghain, my favorite club in Berlin, sets that start in the sludge of ambient and experimental music and an empty dance-floor and end with a thousand people sweating it out to cold, techno. This is a mix for getting ready, then getting psyched, then going out. A mix that I hope will surprise you. Enjoy the thaw.
People get ready, people get sweaty.

Sonic Landscapes presents a one-hour mix to get you through this grim weather. Beginning with a seething remix of R.Kelly’s “I’m a Flirt” by Cyril Hahn, the mix moves into some bass-heavy house and tech-house to get the circulation going, then transitions to the twisted rave-scapes of DJ Stingray 313, Marcel Dettman, Kassem Mosse. Finally, we let you down easy with a jazzy “walk in the park” track by Kerri Chandler to remind you of greener pastures.

This week’s episode of Sonic Landscapes is brought to us by DJ HARIM. This is a collection of songs meant to be listened to on either excellent headphones to fully experience the depth of sound and fascinating mixing or on a speakers system in an echoey subterranean dance club.
HARIM is an undergraduate at Cornell University, and Sonic Landscapes is excited to present his first mix for the show. With an inclination for more underground varietals, he enjoys playing music ranging from rhythmic yet soulful techno, all the way to festive, bass driven grooves. With the recent EDM explosion that has swept over America, commercial dance music has pushed techno, one of Dance’s earliest genres, into oblivion. HARIM makes it his quest and musical mission to spread techno, minimal, and deep house to the local Ithaca community and prove that it can provide great energy for a party.
On this mix you will find some of HARIM’s current favorite tracks, which includes percussive & tribal minimal techno and deep & heavy tech-house. He is currently a regular DJ at The Gates in Collegetown, and you can see him live this Saturday at Cornell Fashion Collective’s NY Fashion Week party this Saturday as well as next Thursday for Valentines Night, both at The Gates. He also frequently DJ’s at Lotus Seed Yoga Studio, where he plays smooth deep house, where he redefines both the relationship with sound and body as well as expands upon the utility of electronic music.
