This month Chris has gone for what he is calling a ‘deep and spacey’ mix – lots of tunes from the quirkier side of dance music, with tags such as “trippy”, “cosmic” and “strange” to the fore.
Starting off with some typically off-kilter dreaminess from Sebastien Leger, a middle eight of wonky tunes from various purveyors of left-field house music such as Pezzner, Sascha Funke, one and a half tracks from Superpitcher (himself and half of Pachanga Boys) and one and half tracks from Axel Boman (himself and half of Talaboman) and finishing out with some more straight down the middle(ish), blissed out, acid-flecked house music from Steve Bug and Langenberg.
Turn the volume up and enjoy (and like and share if you do)!
As another Ibiza season draws to a close and the nights start to draw in, this month Chris has put together a mix with a warming, ‘balearic’ feel… not the super club tech house flavour, but a deeper, more chilled affair that you might find playing at a beach club at sunset. All the traditional balearic elements are there, an acoustic opener from Feathered Sun, a house re-interpretation of a pop classic from Barbarossa, lots of deep and dreamy house music from the likes of Fort Romeau and John Talabot and finishing off with a hands in the air indie dance hoe down from Feon. Turn the volume up and enjoy (and like and share if you do)!
The veritable queen of eclectica – Charlotte Livingstone brings a genre busting mixtape of nuggets from across the musical firmament. Sounds like summer.
This weekend Seeks found itself soundtracking the wonderful micro-festival Benfest in the beautiful Cotswolds, not much survived other than these two fragments of Ade seeks’ hazy Saturday morning breakfast opener. It’s be a shame not to share them with you.
In his most recent mixes for Seeks Music Chris has given us his take on indie dance, explored deep and dreamy house music and shown us that vocals can be cool in dance music. This month, there is no specific theme apart from bringing all these elements together with the indie tinged and all round wonkiness of Rebolledo and Superpitcher (who also also perform together as the even stranger Pachanga Boys), the beautifully dreamy opener from Taloboman (John Talabot and Axel Boman) and plenty of wonderful vocals throughout from the likes of Qtier, Julienne Dessagne (half of Saschienne and otherwise known as the Fantastic Twins) and David Harks.
A golden era for modern psychedelic music is upon us. I worshiped at the temples of both Thee Oh Sees and King Gizzard within a few weeks of each other and acknowledged how lucky we are. So much good music and so many drummers! So strap on your prism glasses and settle in then for this 30th edition of the Antiswarm featuring a lot of long, languorous futuristic psyche in all sorts of genres and spanning 6 decades. Enjoy
