dBMcast #114: Lost Track of Time (320 kbps)
Mixed by DJ Playaduster, October 2012
More often than not, DJ Playaduster's dBMcasts choose a musical genre and explore the various electronic permutations of that vibe over an hour-and-a-half. In this new mix, the genres are blended, one flowing in to the next, an undulating river of blending sounds and spirits. This is a sonic exploration that goes off the map, a journey through progressive grooves and forward-leaning beats: Bass Chakra Therapy alongside deep house, Gypsy whomp vs. ambient spacestep, fractured glitchhop rubbing up against pop music remixes. Playaduster was guided by intuition on this excursion and the results are exquisitely interesting, both for a headphones chill-out session or a dance floor adventure.
We might also note that at the heart of this mix is a long cut from Pachanga Boys entitled "Time" — a bit of an unusual choice for DJ Playaduster. This was the beat that Robot Heart often played to meet and greet the first rays of the rising sun out on the playa, so it is packed with meaning and memory for many of us RH junkies at Burning Man 2012!

Here are a few snapshots of Robot Heart beneath the Full Moon on Thursday night, and then the transition to sunrise Friday morning, complete with Orbital's Dieselfish mobilitea house and Moontroll's Playa Portrait Project — enjoy, and try not to get too homesick!
