DJ Basilisk probes the hypnotic depths of psychedelic techno on Silicon Overmind 6, the latest in his signature series situating the style in a wider context. From a murky and cavernous beginning this mix steadily builds tension, digging deep into mechanical grooves and sinister atmospheres. Reaching a muscular and energetic peak in the very center, the mood gradually transforms into something brighter and more playful, drifting into a long, dreamy comedown and a return to mortal realms. As always, Basilisk’s attention to detail and mastery of harmonic mixing ensures sublime transitions; tracks merge into one another, producing a sensation of endless movement until the very last beat drops.
