The Antiswarm, October 2017

Like an explosion of lime and mint in your ear. Like sleeping on a cloud. Like getting lost in a world that doesn’t exist.

The Antiswarm, May 2017

There’s no earthly way of knowing
Which direction they are going!
There’s no knowing where they’re rowing,
Or which way they river’s flowing!
Not a speck of light is showing,
So the danger must be growing,
For the rowers keep on rowing,
And they’re certainly not showing
Any signs that they are slowing…

Seek Beats : Chris Bassett – April 2017

Chris’s inspiration for this mix came from him chancing upon a video stream of the Woomoon closing party in Ibiza last year  - an amazing spectacle with all kinds of weird and wonderful performance art mixed in with a deeper, dreamier, more traditionally Balearic musical sound than the typical tech house you would find in the majority of the super clubs.
Woomoon was one of the big successes of Ibiza last season, with many proclaiming it the ‘true Ibiza sound’.

This kind of deep and dreamy sound has been pushed by Robot Heart at Burning Man  and Lee Burridge at his ‘All Day I Dream’ parties for a while now and it’s fast becoming a ‘scene’ with Woomoon residents Bedouin scoring an Essential Mix in 2016.

So sit back and relax to Chris’s latest Seeks Beats offering with his take on the Woomoon experience, with tracks from Bedouin, Nu, Oceanvus Orientalis and Bonar Bradberry… enjoy (remember to spread the word if you do).

The Antiswarm, December 2016

So at the end of a truly shitty turn around the sun we are all still blessed with beautiful, hopeful, inspiring music, and here is some. 12 months of amazing, trippy tracks fused into a blistering kernel as the Antiswarm propels you into 2017. Keep on truckin’ space cadets!

Antiswarm’s Top 10s of 2016

So here’s the Antiswarm’s take on 2016′s futuristic electronic and more psychedelic moments. When I look back, despite what’s hapened elseware, it’s been a great year musically so the tracks were easy to do (I had loads left over), the albums a little harder. Clear winners in both departments were Badbadnotgood who’s fourth effort is by far their best. In line with that, things have got significantly jazzier (see also the superb A Tribe Called Quest album) in my headphones this year which is also great.  More traditionally for the Antiswarm there’s lots of spacey techno and modern psych in here as well. So have a listen, drift off and enjoy!
