when it comes down to a good mix, be it music or food, fine ingredients are mandatory, forming olfactoric and gastronomic arrays of elements, each one individual on it's own. the purpose of preparation can be manifold as it's technique involved, the lucullian pleasures as individual as it's ingredients. how does your music taste, how do you eat?

food...notice that instant rush of saliva when seeing, smelling a mouth watering dish of your favorite meal music...feel that small but intense physical sensation of hairs rising, on your arms and your head, listening to that track, listening to the blending of sounds and rhythms, that passage of acoustic notions. sensual sensations. many say that to be moved by music, on dancefloors, in their minds by other minds, to cite an old motto of plus 8 records. although being a very commonplace idea, i prefer to be sensually touched by music than just moved as it encompasses a bouquet of actions not only inside your head and body, triggered by music in contextual relationships. going to clubs with plugged ears, still hearing the music just loud enough to remind you where you are, the usual arduous hustling rolls off your conscience, leaving yourself wide awake for the sensual sensations like the warmth of people coming closer, the air pressure and movement in the vicinity of the speakers...did you see the flame of your lighter shaking to the bass while lighting up your cigarette? the low sound level contrasts to all the action around you, amplifying the experience like a slow motion film scene. so many details that usually, literally, get blown away...without substance abuse that is.

stir it up, boil it down. preparation is part of the process, when it comes to food and eating. chemical processes, small acidic molecules roaming around the taste buds, swirls of tasty streaks like chocolate stirred with fresh milk and honey, fruits and curry, light and sweet. mixing music is so much like preparing food, where connaisseurship meets technique, artistry meets science.
