Editorial pick

I am pleased to select pumpkinSoup by airtone ( @martynbloor) as my top editorial pick for the 2017 Ghost Notes Remix event. (Congratulations to all contributors for your imaginative offerings.)

pumpkinSoup caught my ear, and then my heart, because it expresses aspects of autumn and Halloween that are too often left unexplored in favor of more cliché sonic spookiness. Here we find instead a gently rolling electronica that conjures falling leaves, an atmosphere of off balance innocence, carefree wonder, benign mystery, and cardamom spice. Following an initial section of textured sound, an easy going ostinato emerges and supports several beautifully shaped techno themes. pumpkinSoup makes use of one CCMixter sample, a sustained, amplified event called Edge of Madness by PorchCat.

I hope to make use of this remix in a forthcoming film project. I believe it would also be an excellent addition to podcasts, games, or ambient playlists.
