EAVESDROPPER (yves de mey)

My initial idea for this mix was to go back into a personal history of music that encouraged me to do what I do now (music that makes me envious in a positive way, music I wish had been composed by me). After a while, I thought this approach was too narrow and, after all, all the beautiful music I'm surrounded by is inspiring and motivating.

While selecting and deselecting tracks for this mix two things really struck me. First, the majority of the featured artists are people I've met, adding extra value to the perception and appreciation of their music.

The other thing that popped up was the spectral leitmotiv of the selection. All tracks are compatible (at least to my ears), frequencies seamlessly interweave or make room for one another. One piece allows the next one to be there.

It's unavoidable then to arrive at an emotional level when listening to that music. Or stronger yet: living that music, inhaling it.

Every single track in this mix is, in one way or another, linked to an event I simply can't and don't want to forget. Lost love, company and friendship, spine tingling nights out, laughter, birth and death, moments of inspiration and desperation, simple melancholy and complicated visions of what's next.

I guess without this music (or music in general), things wouldn't be the same. I hope I never have to find out how different that would be.
