Rhyme Flight, Deck 3 : “Obsidian Drift”

Third flight on deck … in immediate retrospect, this one features numinous undercurrents with a nocturnal twist on the oft-renowned tertiary charm … let’s chalk it up to seasonal vibes of a midsummer night’s scene … this flight actually blends quite well together in context of a set sequence / mini-mix … the full-bodied bass across the board amplifies the one on those drop transitions with a proper gravity bounce … anyhaps, with that, let’s spin this sampler — cheers, enjoi

So … post-flight call back, tunes for the tarmac, in the proximal palatte realm of “numinous undercurrents with a nocturnal twist …” from just your favorite dj savior … this pilot mix surfaces from the canon crates, namely: dj shadow’s endtroducing… happening upon shadow’s repertoire back in … 2007 (?) … amidst record research sessions, workshopping curated playlists for the since-sunsetted-but-ever-illustrious motel de moka … and jpd’s signature style – the cinematic sampling rooted in bedrock percussion scapes – just, instrumental … embryonic glimpses into the sheer limitlessness narrative development fosters through curated music production … anyhaps, with that, cheers : enjoi
