Dj Narrative – Coming Home Vol # 2 – Fear & Love Part 2

Submitted by on April 30, 2012 – 16:08No Comment

This month’s mix with Narrative is a kind of sequel to my first fear & love mix back from 2006, focusing much more on the Fear side of the equation. As a contrast to last weeks Zazen Mix this one is much heavier and draws on influences from Joseph Campbells’s “Heroes Journey” structure.

It also features a fighting the shadow sequence taken from my 2nd Project X Presents set where i was fortunate to conduct (i use that term loosely!) a live string quartet in a 3 deck remix (again another term used loosely!) of Rich Batsford‘s Completion track, which we all performed live as the climax of the 1st Project X Presents event back in 2006. As you can tell those events have influenced me a great deal :)

The tracks, accapellas and samples are all djed live with 4 decks and s4 sample slots, though like the other mixes there’s plenty of preperation and reworking in order to try and create a dj mix journey with narrative. The narrative is pretty strong to me in this one, mainly revolving around a journey through some of the different faces of fear, and with the protaganist battling their own fears and coming to some sort of resolution at the end.

I wasn’t sure if this was more for home listening or going out, as the music is much more uptempo (and very fierce at times) but i figured it could be both, and, as i have two live sets for this month’s newsletter i figured best to keep it as part of the home.

Very much hope you enjoy it, and all comments and any form of sharing is very much appreciated.
