Okay Sherman set the way back machine to the late 70’s or early 80’s when synth-pop was born.
Karstenholymoly not only takes me back to the days of when I was transitioning from teen to adult. When my world was young and foolish and dancing up a storm in little clubs.
It get’s a definite thumbs up from me.
I am thrilled to select “The Code of My Heart” remix by gurdonark as my first editorial pick on CCmixter. This off kilter refrain is an example of the alchemy inherent to the mixter mission.
Derived from two samples by speck, this track creates an original and ethereal mood by weaving a syncopated motif into a free floating ostinato. This track will pair nicely with other elements in a mix.
For me “The Code of My Heart” evokes fond musical memories of guitarists Bill Frissell, Robert Fripp, or Andy Summers in the way a short idea is given freedom to wander in effortless self-examination.
This composition also caught my attention in its explicit effort to comment on our “Crack the Code” theme for this event. I give gurdonark props for making a gesture towards human vulnerability with this heartfelt contribution.

RamseySounds marries strong, driving electronica with Mandyleigh Storm’s attention grabbing, soulful singing of Keep the Silence. Enjoy this well crafted feel good music. Gonna make ya sit up straight!
In this latest sonic Speck-tacle a brilliant vocal by Mr. Yesterday is teased, tweezed, and cajoled to do his master’s bidding in full view of the hippest house band in recent memory.
Brilliant editing of perfect samples tumble through compressors and reverb tanks to emerge glistening with sweat and begging for more.
