FvF friend Koen Galle, AKA Kong, a DJ with a profound love for House music, regular contributor to 22tracks.com, radio host and music label owner, has compiled our most recent soundscape, Mixtape #91.
Inspired by his love of FvF, the mix includes music that expresses the emotions one might experience inside his or her home. A home that feels pleasant and hospitable, where you are always welcome for a cup of coffee.
About his selection, Koen says, “When working on this podcast, I did not just want to make a selection of my favourite records. As a result, the mix became a story, moving through a wide range of feelings and situations connected to ideas of home, feelings of comfort, warmth, dreaming, love, and sexuality.”
The mix was done live in one take with only vinyl records and no digital post-production was used. Koen warns, “I did not want to limit myself to the positive side of life. After a while you hear the mood changes, the emotions start to feel colder, things go wrong. You might even hear a few vinyl cracks and even a skip near the end of the mix, but hey, life has a few cracks and skips too.” Koen, a lover of all things House, is inviting you to turn on his mixtape in the comfort of your own home and experience the range of emotions he has collected.
