Good Morning Mix: Astronomar’s HARD Day of the Dead mixtape
As Day of the Dead 2015 quickly approaches, HARD has been releasing a series of mixes from artists on its lineup. For their fourth installment in the mixtape series, they’ve released a mix curated by Astronomar.
Astronomar’s official mix is arguably the most impressive in the series thus far, and certainly the most bizarre. Over an esoterically energetic hour, Astronomar displays a mastery of genre-blending, moving between tech house, bassline house, trap, dubstep, and innumerable musical variations in between.
Past a diversity of genres, Astronomar proves an appreciation for a drastically splayed timeline of unique, tech-infused music. Amidst recent releases and unreleased tracks, Astronomar peppers in older, more abstruse songs like “Playground” by Marble Players (a collective comprised of of French producers and label heads Para One, Bobmo, and Surkin). With his new EP still fresh off the press, Astronomar could have used this mixtape as a promotional vane. Instead, he decided to gift listeners with a medley of the electro which inspired him in both the past and the present. Enjoy the fruits of his inspiration below.
