Sweet Headache 076: “Vandalism Meets Art”

It was about time to break some barriers. I am talking about the barriers in my head: I had been playing too many single-style, single-tempo recently, and this created a barrier that didn’t let me think about other ways to compile music.

In a way, this mix is about tearing down musical barriers. It’s also about combining rough, diverse sounds into a set that still feels as if those tracks were meant to be played together. From Dubstep to Maximal Electro to Drumstep – this mix is probably one of the most dynamic sets I’ve ever recorded.

This mix kicks off with a Dubstep remix of the (in)famous Nyan Cat. It’s truly amazing how many remixes, mashups and variations there are based on this simple video!

I also used a couple of tracks by Skrillex here. I have to admit I had really underestimated the guy. I though he was just some guy who makes noisy music – but he actually got the rare talent to stay in control of the noise and alternate between sweet melodies and distorted synthesizers.
