guest mix: silas (part III)

I've been fortunate to have the honor of once again presenting a session by one of my favorite storytellers: SILAS. Silas returns with a beautifully weaved mix of subtle bliss and dark melancholy. I'm honored that Silas keeps in good contact with me and has been churning out a plethora of epic mixes. Rather than to mentally coast through any sessions that Silas creates, I choose to ingest his pure musical vision completely undeterred by outside influences. Mixes like his are the reason I spent a lot on headphones, and between that small universe that exists in my mind, he unfolds a story of beauty and wonder on a grandiose scale. When he presents music to me with enthusiasm, I believe that his inspiration is sincere. TEULU is one such mix that came to me from Silas, and I'm confident that you will be taken in by its intense orchestration and development just as I am.


This session weaves a tapestry filled nostalgic wonder. Even new music within the mix are comfortably presented via Silas' amazingly beautiful transitions. Our journey takes us through phases of deep dark moments that are equally measured against serene moments of salvation . Just as the photo represents a hypnotic early morning vibe, the music within captures that perfect moment when your mind's eye begins the transition from controlling your mental universe to realigning with the world. Every subtle subconscious thought becomes daydreams, and every whispered intuition of this session roars a symphony of understanding. If I can plainly state the obvious, Silas' session will get your head right. Consider this all a gift of enrichment. 

Be sure to catch Silas' further endeavors that pop up on his MIXCLOUD profile and show the love. Enjoy and share the musical beauty of TEULU (note: there are issues with streaming this in the US due to copyright issues and I cannot even provide a link for streaming as it doesn't exist for those of us in the US; for that reason I offer this download). Peace.

Turn on, tune in, sleep...
