I made a new mix set:
The title is an obvious play on Metal Machine Music, but other than that, there are no similarity with Lou Reed’s album.
Instead, I tried to pick tracks with a bit of depth and a mystical magical feel to them. In particular, the third track, Reefer Decree’s remix of their old hit Curved Air is the epitome of what I wanted to achieve with this set.
In the end, I didn’t quite manage that, but I still feel I put a really good set together. It starts out deep and dark, and then grows into something brighter and more cheerful with soaring melodies and even a little bit of singing towards the end.
If you’re into electronic music, this should be a good accompaniment to chilling on the sofa with a good book.
