Drumcell Presents a Therapeutic Playlist


Between tomorrow’s BL_K NOISE x Raster showcase in LA and his three-hour Drumcell set in Denver the next day, Moe Espinosa has quite a weekend ahead of him. It’s the kind of crammed schedule that requires a little (un)easy listening to survive.

Keeping that in mind—along with last month’s Hypox1a EP (Division of Trust, Make Noise) and some of the stunning back catalogue selections we highlighted a few months ago—we asked the elusive producer/label owner to put together an exclusive Spotify playlist of songs that are meant to soothe. Here’s what he had to say and share….

I put together this playlist of music that I have found to be personally therapeutic. It is a collection of compositions that is an exercise in catharsis while providing self-reflection and perspective.

There are times that all of us are in dire need of inspiration, and it’s difficult to not be inspired by music that is as deeply moving as some of these pieces are.

I’ve also selected most of this music based on the fact that the pieces were created with various types of analog synthesizers, further proving how expressive these instruments can be outside of the dancefloor and into a broader space of contemplative drama.

There is a time and place for all different kinds of music and while this playlist may not be the suitable soundtrack for a cheery Sunday
morning cleaning the house and cooking pancakes, it can be more than suitable for those long cold winter nights, endless dreary rainy days, and hopeless stares into the horizon during a sunset.
