P for Pyromania Mix

January 17, 2009


Squarepusher? Dopplereffekt? Philip Glass? Frankie Goes to Hollywood? All on one mix? Hard to believe but these 4 artists mentioned make up part of this wonderful and interesting mix.

P For Pyromana by Paul Bendoris drifts in and out of mellow tones to almost gothic like sounds. This kind of mix is normally something most people would put on to help push themselves towards the Land of Nod. Personally I can’t help myself and keep going back to it over and over; whether it be for the walk to class or listening to before a night out , this mix has seen me through.

The use of clever samples throughout the mix helps solidify its unique appeal. Even the over-rinsed Donnie Darko samples fit with a seamless fashion. It apparantly took 4 months of editing in Ableton to create this mix such is its intricacy, but we’re glad the work was put in because this mix really is fantastic.
