DJ Basilisk explores many shades of deep house, melodic and dub techno, and leftfield dance music in this meticulously-curated guest mix for the Taipei-based Evaporate crew. Although rooted in the psytrance scene, Basilisk is a true sonic chameleon, traversing an immense range of styles and approaches in pursuit of gourmet electronic sounds. Here he applies his signature smooth and harmonic mixing style to subterranean house and techno, navigating the moody depths of the genre with confidence and aplomb. Expect to hear warm grooves, sultry vocals, hints of jazz, and a dash of “Rominimal” in the opening half of the mix, after which Detroit techno drive and brawny bass-heavy beats deliver a glimmering climax. A serene and hypnotic comedown follows, delicately stripping back the layers until only raw analog sounds and tape hiss remain. The results are spellbinding and sublime, inviting further listening over the coming years.
