/ Reunion

synaptic-fx-reunion

Synaptic FX presents Reunion, a three hour studio mix based on his homecoming set at Solstice 2015, a unique community gathering in middle Ontario. Time slots at this event are typically limited to one hour, a thorny challenge given his usual propensity for long format DJing. After returning from the event Synaptic FX reconstructed the set from memory, blending new selections with old favourites and letting the set sprawl without concern for time constraints. This is what he would have liked to have shared: a free-wheeling journey through deep, dark, and sensual house, techno, and trance for the witching hour.

Notes

  • Recorded at a temporary studio in June 2015 in Mississauga, Ontario, using Traktor, a Korg Nanokontrol, and a nice pair of headphones, but no monitors.
  • Since this is the first studio mix from my Synaptic FX alter-ego I was intent on making it a good one, and I feel confident I succeeded in capturing a range of styles within the scope of this project while maintaining a smooth and steady progression throughout the set.
  • The cover design is actually based on a low-quality photograph I shot on my phone at the Om Reunion Project Solstice Festival and later brought into Adobe Illustrator to trace and clean up.
  • 3000 listens as of March 2019.
