Step into the woods and leave your soul in the Black Lodge, here’s a dark and moody mix that leads you deep into a strange and mysterious night in the town of Twin Peaks.
All tracks written by Angelo Badalamenti and David Lynch, mixed with soundeffects from the series.
What a guest mix we’ve got for you this week! Audio Ad has opened for Cashmoney, Rhazel, Schooly D and Supernatural Baby Blue’s as well as having diverse production credits ranging from underground Hip Hop to commercial work for Film and television.
He presents a weekly Friday night radio show on Fnoob.com (www.fnoob.com/music/AudioAd 10-11pm) and has just produced Bronx rapper Jerry Beeks’ new album, that is available to download for FREE from his blog http://audioad.tumblr.com.
There’s the usual mixed bag from myself taking in old Four Tet, 80’s tape jam from California Flight Project and a lovely deep selection to finish things up.
Step outside. It’s night, it’s dark, rather cold, and the woods are just around the corner. Walk. What’s that sound? Listen.
