Sci-fi Mix


I haven't posted any DJ mixes here on the blog in ages but here's one I did recently. The Department for Arts and Cultural Studies (Institut for Kunst og Kultur or IKK) at Copenhagen University held its annual student organized IKK Festival on March 6-7. This year's theme was "sci-fi" and the festival concluded with a party where I was DJ’ing.

My musical selections for the evening reflected the theme of the festival: synthesizer soundtracks, sci-fi pop and space disco. I played an early “chill” set and a late night disco set. This mix is made up of selections from the former set which contained a lot of soundtrack stuff. The soundtrack pieces have the movie title added in parentheses below. I just gave this a listen and it is indeed a nicely (s)paced journey with a good balance between utopian and dystopian vibes. Enjoy!
