I've been having a lot of scary dreams lately. Some are filled with chomping jaws and endless running, others are horribly mutated stories from my past. There are even ones that are just like regular dreams (pleasantly familiar faces and places), but filled with panic and dread for no reason at all.

This mix is inspired by irrational fears--real, imagined and otherwise.

A few years ago I knew I was in trouble. I was feeling driven into the dirt. I was wiped out on all levels and without a shred of optimism. I knew I was truly scraping the bottom when, save a few favourite classic albums, for the first time in my life all music sounded flat and uninspiring.

This was a pretty serious state of affairs.

Music has always been a place I can go to, be at or be in where I can feel truly free. Music has bailed me out on many lonely occasions, and infinitely raised the level of my most special social times. I never felt more scandalized than when, as a kid, my parents would threaten to take my music away.

All of the best times of my life have been spelled out and punctuated by music. I feel this strongly now. All of the plaque that builds up on my mind's lines of classification have dissolved. I feel the grittiness that comes with a fresh start.

This mix takes a mucky kaleidoscopic flight that starts off in dark branches, and slowly angles toward a golden slice of moon in a warm night sky.

It's always a strange feeling to be deceived. To realize that someone comfortably familiar has been 'pulling a fast one.' A familiar face can change shape, physical and emotional landscapes transform from homes and communities to something unfamiliar, somewhere unsettling.

This mix is, for the most part, a heavy one. It is dedicated to anyone who has ever stood up to corruption, convention or 'common sense' and said "No. Things don't have to be this way." You are my heroes.

I like the tensions between opposites, poles and disparate parts. But sometimes lines and borders disappear--forms do not hold, edges blur, black smoke trails into a dark room... We see things that are here and yet a billion miles away.

This mix is a space epic, inspired by all the other inhabitable planets out there.

I made my first trip to New York City this month and, I have to say, it was pretty amazing. I've been living a very spacious and secluded life for the past while which made the vibrancy (and sheer volume) of life in NYC pleasantly overwhelming. It's been a long time since I've been among so many people: so many lives.

This is a travelling mix, so to speak--inspired by a lust for life... and rain on the windshield.

Time has been rushing by incredibly quickly for the past while. I often forget what day it is and feel total denial when I have to flip the calendar (yet again). Sadly, this has also led to lengthening gaps between my mixes over the past few months. Thanks to the rejuvenating effects of warm spring air I have a number of things planned for the rest of the season and into the summer that I'm sure will remedy the problem.

With this mix I go back to basics: make it sound like something is either happening, or about to happen. The result is a stormer--perfect for road trips to old cities, visits to small islands, and flights, both international and fanciful.
