Zoon Van Snook Presents: Oddcasts #2 – ‘Space Oddities’ Mix
Here we have the second instalment of my quarterly, themed OddCasts for the resplendent Ransom Note magazine.
This time out I have chosen to name it 'Space Oddities' as my tribute to the late genius David Bowie.
As you will see, the track; artist, or release it comes from, is themed around the cosmos.
You can expect a mélange of musical styles from jazz; electronica; New York post punk; and prog, intertwined with Sci-fi film and Hitchhiker's Guide…samples; soundtracks; library music; and even Bowie vocals floating around in the mix. All of this is stitched together with NASA's electromagnetic space recordings, released to the public last year.
The beautiful artwork is a piece called 'SkyHume' by Linda Himbert, a sound and fine artist from Berlin, now based in London. This is the first of many collaborations, I feel…
The next 2-hour edition of my Oddtronica radio show will air on Thursday 18th of February on Bloop, and the following day – on Friday the 19th – I will be DJing an Oddtronica set at Gorilla Bar (Gracia) here in Barcelona.
