DJ Basilisk presents Uroboros 1, an extraordinary journey through underground electronic music of the last decade. Featuring more than 130 tracks and clocking in at slightly more than 8 hours in length, this unusually ambitious mix spans an immense range of styles and approaches. An emphasis on smooth, harmonic mixing and dreamlike, hypnotic selections creates a sense of perpetual motion and constant onward travel even as genre boundaries are dissolved.
It begins in the darkest depths of bass-heavy ambient, picks up steam while churning through electro, IDM, and experimental breakbeat, eases into the groove with melodic and progressive house, kicks up dust with driving peak-time techno, reaches several shimmering highs with euphoric progressive trance and hints of Goa, slides downward into deep house and dub techno, and gently drifts back to earth in an extended chill out session, ultimately returning to a vast droning emptiness. As the name implies, this uncommon sonic odyssey also forms a loop, one of the basic building blocks of electronic music, as well as a universal symbol of destruction and rebirth.
