Words + Mix RAJESH HALDAR
With nowhere to DJ for the moment, it was nice to have an opportunity to make an espresso and sit in my studio one morning and put down this set.
Lushlife DJ sets are usually pretty well rehearsed; I definitely come from that school of ’90s hip-hop mixtape DJs that like to have everything just so. But here — in the free-jazz spirit of my new Redamancy EP — I kind of just hit record and let things flow.
The music is very much culled from the types of tracks that inspired my new record and some choice cuts from the guest artists that made it come to life….
The Dining Rooms – U
Herbie Hancock – Stars in Your Eyes (12” Mix)
Todd Terje – Snooze 4 Love
Battles – Futura
Biogen – Afloat
Botany (Feat. Milo) – Au Revoir
Gang Starr – Mass Appeal (Instrumental)
Lushlife – Redamancy
Pharaoh Sanders – The Creator Has A Master Plan
Floating Points – Silhouettes I, II and III
LTJ Bukem – Our World (12” Mix)
Suzanne Ciani – The Velocity of Love
Jay Electronica – Better In Tune with the Infinite
Seshasayee – A Sacred Bore
The Boogiemonsters- Recognized Thresholds of Negative Stress
DJ SS – Respect to the Following
Sun Ra – When There Is No Sun
Dälek – Masked Laughter (Nothing’s Left)
Desertion Trio – I Hear A New World
Mankind – Back in the World
