“Record,” Artist (Vintage)Taste Notes
“Starstruck,” Santigold (2008)Dark wave base with indie pop sensibility, protostelo vantage echoing supergiant atmosphere … stellarevolution
“Fearless” ft. Nadia Rose; Melanie C (2020)Trip-pop base with R&B sensibility, sister sensei vantage echoing king crucible atmosphere … winged goddess
“Snakeskin,” Rina Sawayama (2020)Electropop base with orchestral sensibility, cosmopolitan heiress apparent vantage echoing millinneage atmosphere … moulten opera
“Superheroes,” Daft Punk (2001)Electro-house base with synthwave sensibility, jetpack shep vantage echoing crescendilemma atmosphere … hérosesquemachinaire
[ On the Whole ] “Vanguard 71,” ibid. (2022) Strong cinematic overtones, halo yoked human bildungsroman underscore … varying degrees of lifted, gifted, drifted cosmic analogutronic feel … leading the brigade of language artistry amidst the age of mechtech industrial reproduction … something inherently hybrid redemptive, dive into darkness to breakthrough luminous … oracular spectacular hymnals

Now then … this one, Steve Parry presents Original Sinner – December 2021 Mix … crossed the radar late last year courtesy of selador recordings’ daze of christmas bonanza extravaganza

It’s Day 4 of our Xmas giveaway extravaganza at Selador, and time for Steve to step up with his own seasonal offering ️

Showcasing his new Original Sinner alter ego where he gets to play out his love for Cosmic Disco and Funked Up Mirrorball Sleaze

so … within the immediate, as per the repertoire par ( repartoire? ), this mix capstone echoes our precedent deck on the whole, as a proximal pilot maestro in the form of extended flight elixir mix … red eye rotation, as it were … but/and, often times … i slate dj sets / mixes that i just really enjoy but / and because they sound so good on the spirit when i imagine how the tempos would feel with other people sharing the space of said rhythmic range frequency … so all of that is to say … this one just sounded so good in consideration of other people sharing the experience of said sounds … so — without much further ado, and one final point of note : taking the space to extend deep audiophilic appreciation to selador for maintaining their nook of the music community alive and well endowed – creatively speaking … highly recommend frequenting / following / familiarizing your (the communal you of said readership audience) sel[f/ves] with said label … so so worth it, due to and despite the convoluted music industry marketplace of current … so/and, all of that abstruced … please indulge in steve parry’s cosmic nu-discolicious christmas mix — a toast, to all — enjoi … :
