This is a DJ mix created to accompany the emergence of Glimpses of Light in 2022.
It was curated over a long period during the process of Glimpses of Light coming into being through 2021 and early 2022 – and finally mixed live in May 2022. [Glimpses of Light is an integrated vessel to hold and share all my work as an artist and facilitator across movement, sound and image – see glimpsesoflight.art.]
It’s a wave in the Ecstasy Radio style I used to make – longer and deeper than most D-Jedi journeys: designed for immersion and aiming for sweet ecstatic alchemy in whatever you’re moving with and living in.
The wave opens with a soft, ambient jazz vibe, moving through some beats, then stepping up the tempo for a trancey rhythm container of sound with African and South American inflections, all lifting into flight and landing with poetry and stillness sound medicine.
It’s quite a multi-layered journey, shifting through different energies with blends and cuts, seeking to create space for change, the release of loss and the emergence of renewal in these stretching times we’re living in.
The mix was first shared as an exclusive with my Patreon peeps and then went out publicly a few weeks later. At some point I will make a guided journey version of this journey for Dancefloor Jedis and Art&Medicine Activators on my Patreon.
As ever, use for dancing or other listening as you like, and use the best speakers or headphones you have available.
