What do you think is the essence of being a good DJ?
And what is a good mix?
Sure, you need some skills and there are many kids out there creating amazing stuff. For me, however, it’s rather about the selection of music than about technique. My favorite mixes are like the soundtrack to a journey, bringing the right tune at the right time.
Therefore, I am überglücklich to have Theo Lawrence as our first Guest DJ. On his wonderful Balearic trip ‘Cuando El Sol Cae‘ Theo safely carries us to places we’ve never seen before. He is professional about those kind of things and I hardly know anyone who’s doing it better. I was in love with his sound ever since I heard his amazing podcast on Another Night on Earth and I’m so proud that he made this mix for us.
And how he did….
‘Cuando El Sol Cae’ got me with the first tone. Don’t know how Theo is doing it but his sounds are just always right. They are peaceful and exciting, uplifting and calming, strange yet so familiar, they make you wanna go on and on….and stay forever. You could call it perfect harmony if this wouldn’t imply something stable, solid. How can, if at the same time they’re so vibrant, lively, loose, energetic, airy? Hhmmm….I guess words won’t tell. Just listen. I hope you feel it, too.
