B Sides-D7

D7 | Nick Craddock | Gateway To Zen | London • UK

This mix was recorded at a bit of a difficult time for me. I’m comfortable with dark moods in mixes – in fact I often prefer it, but in this case my frame of mind meant the process was quite stressful. It took me a while to get something that I was happy with, and it’s not usually my method to hammer a selection into place. But I had faith in the music itself, and I’m happy with how it turned out, even if my memory of recording it is a bit tainted! Musically, I think it probably flips between light/dark. There’s a tough core, but a redemptive finish! I hope people enjoy it.
