Alien Vibes From the Earth Radio Show EPS.1af1 "Unforgettable" With Passwar D
An Almost Chronological Summary of the Sound From 2010 to 2020 The Alien Vibes From the Earth Radio Show Episode 1af1 "Unforgettable" by Passwar D is a highly artistic articulation of a 54-minutes, 12 tracks live DJ mix, offering the listeners an overview of the magnificent and aspirational soundscape of the second decade of the 21st century. The mix chronologically transitions through each year of the 2010s and into the first year of the new 2020 decade. 11 out of the 12 tracks were curated in reflection to the sound of the decennium with each track representing the given year based on its release date. This long winding sonic journey starts by introducing us to human sentimentality. It then leads the listeners into a spiritual chanting of the medieval, the tribal beats, and the techno arousal of the machines, aliens, and space travel. The 12th track, Passwar D's 2020 single release, Xhjduik (pronounce as "such do.ee.k") (Original Mix), was used in the middle point of the mix to spice up and embellish the mega-climatic escalation of tensions from Visual Capture (Luke Slater Remix) (2015) by Slam, and into the next record thereafter, from Architectural, Elliptical Storm (Original Mix)(2016). Denying the expectation of the complete machine takeover, the mix takes an unexpected turn after the climax with an extended and intertwined fusion of three tracks, Derek Plaslaiko's Praia Da Amalia (2018), Richie Hawtin's CLOSE combined (Moving Forward) (2019), and Tiga's 3 Rules (Deewee Unreleased Mix) (2020). Here, Passwar D masterfully combined acid, spoken words, and a playful electropop to imaginatively release us from the buildup tensions, ending this narrative with a sense of humor and cheekiness. "Embracing tension, it is here to stay. Dancing with it, creating fun out of it, celebrating it and the tensions will eventually resolve."

Alien Vibes From the Earth Radio Show, EPS.0q1m by PASSWAR D
ABOUT THIS EPISODE |DJSD (the DJ’s Daughter) is welcoming Passwardy back to the Alien Vibes From the Earth Radio Show to continue on his sonic adventure from the previous episode. Shortly after recording his live set here at the radio show, Passwardy traveled to Shanghai for some gigs, unknowingly walking right into the world’s first Covid-19 epicenter. Unable to get back to the US as planned, Passwardy utilized this quarantine time to conjure up his very first Album “Personal Cosmology” (coming soon) and some awesome mixes. Strangely for Passwardy, being alone in an unknown city for a prolonged period without the option of getting out proved to be an enlightening experience, to the say the least. "Trapped without feeling trapped was an interesting sensation", said Passwardy. "There was so much chaos, frustration, confusions, sadness, contradictions… Yet, I had all those creative urges. Putting all of those emotions, observations, and energies into music-making, whether my own productions or the mixes I was making, somehow just made all sense". When we asked him what were his thoughts (if any) behind this mix, Passwardy said "it was to reflect the current mood in which myself along with many others found ourselves in. It was to embrace the loneliness, the ugliness, the heartbrokenness … all those depressing, end-of-world emotions we are facing nowadays. Yet somehow had this faith that we would all come out of it with a stronger determination than ever. Perhaps it was a utopian idea. But it was really how I was feeling and continue to feel so."

Immersion, Remembering José Padilla
José Padilla has been a constant inspiration for all of us here at DJSD. His ability to use a wide range of styles of music to tell a sonic story that expands hours at a time was a pure gift. The key architect of "Balearic beat", Padilla popularized the upbeat form of electronic dance music through his live DJ sets and the releases of the infamous Café del Mar compilation series. This chill, soulful, yet groovy, and optimistic vibe feels like a breath of fresh air in 2020 when many have a weight of a thousand tons on the shoulders. Unfortunately, on October 18th, it came the sudden news that José Padilla had passed away at the age of 64 in Ibiza. This saddens us all. It is only days after the arrival of the news, we start to think about how we can pay tribute to Padilla. Back in 2003, Velizar in the mix was the resident DJ at Midway, New York. The spirit at the time called for freestyle expressions, which reflected itself in New York's club culture. After a long night of techno and house, Velizar would often entertain the inner cycle with an early morning sunrise set. It was an intimate, personal, and meandering after party, and very much in the spirit of the Balearic Beat. As put by Mixmag in July 1990, "What the 'Balearic concept' has taught us is that it doesn't matter what genre the track falls into, as long as the beat 'n' groove move the feet and what's on top of 'em is pleasing to the ear." It was a pure expression. We dug into our archives and found one recording from those early morning sessions, titled Immersion. It feels appropriate to re-introduce it as our way to pay respect to José Padilla, the Godfather of Chillout. His style of music has made the idea of sunset and sunrise such beautiful memories for people. We hope that Immersion will remind all of us of his legacy and what beautifully crafted music story can bring to us. R.I.P. José Padilla.
