dBMcast #107: Shimmer : Dreamstep for Dubheads
Mixed by DJ Playaduster May-June 2012
With dBMcast #107, DJ Playaduster has woven a sonic tapestry designed to induce dream states and facilitate astral projections. With rumbling bass as our Earthly grounding, we float past nebuli, vortexes and voyaging spacecraft on the wings of violin, percussion, guitar, trumpet and more. If you listen closely, you'll hear Moontroll & Orbit encountering the Temple for the first time at Burning Man 2010.
Have a look around. Smell the colors. Feel the low-end textures massage the tender places in your Bass Chakra. Taste the salty stardust. Relax. Let go….There are no sharp edges or rough transitions here, so you can close your eyes, lay back and take the ride with full trust in the interstellar navigational skills of DJ Playaduster.
Featuring Liquid Stranger * Pantha du Prince * SexyTime * Sunmonx * Nicoluminous * MartyParty * Ganucheau * Shlomo * Filastine * Kalya Scintilla * GRiZ * Edward Sharpe & the Magnetic Zeros

Note: while this mix was tested out in rough form on various Get Found members in late-night listening sessions (post-Vibesquad at the Purple Palace in one instance), the debut of the finished mix happened just last weekend, via iPhone through a mini-whomp sound system (key word: mini) at a remote beach in the San Juan Islands of Washington State. This shamanic set in the company of DJs Playaduster and Edubious set took place just after sunset in this magical setting:
