Secret Sauce Mix + Recipe

Fresh mix alert - a groovy, funky jazz mood to go along with a recipe for the Companion Bakes Secret Sauce series. Click photo above for recipe and track list. 

Thanks so much to Kayla for hosting - I’m particularly stoked to return the favor for the excellent mix they submitted as Aos back when I was curating a series for MOTOR - an all time fave mix of mine. And don’t miss their incredible baked creations!

To go along with the podcast, we each put together a list of our favorite music of the year which I pulled from to make a mix:

Slow Music Meltdown HER 210503 - Moody Synth

Transitioning from a morning to an evening slot on Hollow Earth Radio a while back has been a breath of fresh air for me/my show as I no longer have to manage tracks while simultaneously doing my day job from my home office, so I can really focus on the show and see where the music takes me. I started recording the sets - here’s one from back in May with some synth heroes and local legends. Recommended for a drive or with headphones. Hope you enjoy.

Brain Fruit - 1.7
N Chambers - Myosynchron
Jonathan Fitoussi - Vents Magnetiques
Bitchin Bajas - Rias Baixas
Forma - Physicalist

I was asked to put together an afrobeat-inspired playlist for the closing party (11/22/19) of the ALTAR exhibition at the Jacob Lawrence Gallery,  UW. Check out the playlist below and if you see this in time I encourage you to visit the show as well - some captivating, thought-provoking work! I also provided wine from the sustainably-farmed Indaba Wines in S. Africa via my day job at GVWM.
