Shameless Tuesdays: Livre 120 | Slighter
Can you trust a singer to assure you to have no fear? When it comes to Slighter's new song "Have No Fear," the first single from his upcoming album The Futile Engine, it can be a little unsettling. But hey, at least the beat is killer and the vibes are frothing with loads of sensual power. So don't be afraid. Trust Slighter to give you a good time, as "Have No Fear" is a sign that The Futile Engine will go full throttle with its darkly delicious aura. But if you can't hold in the urge until its July 21 release date, Slighter will tease you with this week's Shameless Tuesdays.
Here's what Slighter has to say about this week's playlist:
I created a 25-track, 2 hour and 30 min set called “Darker Shades”, a playlist highlighting the moody and experimental corners of Electronic Music. This playlist is a way to showcase that Electronic Music isn’t all EDC festivals and big dance anthems. There’s lots of inspiring stuff that happens beyond the “EDM” mainstream, with artists that truly push the envelope of what Electronic Music can be. This form of expression in Electronic Music excites me greatly. This is where Slighter lives, on this edge of contemporary and experimental, flirting with the darker themes and creating moody atmospheres. To be able to showcase a side of Electronic Music some might not be familiar with is my goal, and I hope to expose more people to the creativity of these artists chosen.
In my selections there are new tracks from artists I admire, from my friend Real (Comaduster) to Amon Tobin and two “IDM” stalwarts Vogel and Pole. As well as some classics that I used to DJ at parties back in the 00s in the wee hours of the night when Progressive House & Progressive Breaks were experimental and unique with tracks from Roland Klinkenberg, Andy Page (as ASAP), and James Holden (Mainline). Other entries are artists who really struck a chord with me throughout my journey including Hybrid, Rabbit In The Moon, and Fluke. Plus a few of my own creations and remixes of them from Keith Hillebrandt (Nine Inch Nails), Massachusetts artist Out Out, and Wisconsin’s SOLVE, that exemplify the darker shades of what Electronic Music can be.
Note: I too am a “MassHole” and grew up in Massachusetts, where I first began experimenting with music at a young age before heading west to LA to start my musical career in earnest. 🙂
