I find it hard to believe that it’s been almost 2 years since the last entry in the Mix Series, and yet here we are.

As it happens, this mix has been brewing for quite a bit of that time – from conception, this mix has been several months in the making.  I knew I wanted to do a hip hop mix eventually, but (admittedly) it’s not my format, which meant I had to take a lot of time to build up my library.

My involvement with electronic music in general started with turntablism, so I’ve always recognized the influence that hip hop has had on electronic music.  In an interesting (and unexpected, to me) turn, modern hip hop has evolved in the last several years to include more techno elements.

Almost all of the tracks here are new exclusives – nearly every one was made specifically for this mix.  Some may consider most of the tracks to be a bit leftfield, but it’s one I consider modern, with my own unique voice.  Like all of the mixes I do, this is an opportunity to create and a “snapshot in time”.

At the collision of hip hop and techno, there is a new dimension of music.  This is METAPHYSICS.
