716 Exclusive Mix – European Man : A Loving Gaze Across the Interstellar Fabric Mix


10.04.12 - Guillaume

Erik Jälevik est un sacré artiste opérant sous différents pseudos : European Man pour ses projets plus atmosphériques limite baléariques et Erik XVI pour les sons nettement plus techno, dark et puissants.
On reprend l’historique :
– je l’ai découvert via un mix sous le nom d’Erik XVI qui m’a bluffé, tout simplement l’un des meilleurs mixes techno entendus depuis des lustres : http://i.mixcloud.com/CBQC8P
– j’ai ensuite publié un mix de lui sous le nom d’European Man : http://716lavie.com/fr/european-man-a-slow-drift-across-the-intercontinental-dawn/
– et voilà aujourd’hui la 2ème livrée d’European Man, une bombe atomique de mix, un voyage, une odyssée qu’on écoute sans fin.

Erik Jälevik is an artist I truly like and support, and he does mixes I totally love. Erik uses different aliases : Europen Man for his atmospheric, almost balearic productions and Erik XVI for the darker, techno sounds.
Let’s tell the whole story again.
– I have discovered him through a mix under the name Erik XVI which was one of the best techno mixes I have heard for ages! http://i.mixcloud.com/CBQC8P
– then I have published a 716 Mix from him under the name European Man : http://716lavie.com/fr/european-man-a-slow-drift-across-the-intercontinental-dawn/
– today it is time to publish a second European Mix, check it papa, dope dope dope, a deep travel, a real odyssey.

Or in Erik’s words: « This new mix is called A Loving Gaze Across the Interstellar Fabric, it’s the third in a series of cosmically themed blissed-out epics, the previous ones being A Gentle Sway in The Intergalactic Breeze and A Slow Drift Across the Intercontinental Dawn. As the name implies, this one is quite sentimental at times, and deals with that intersection between bittersweet minor-key emotion and glowing, spacey electronics. It moves through quite a few different genres, from ambient to slow-motion disco and italo to house to techno and even some trance towards the end, before coming down to earth again in a cloud of shoegaze and lysergic pop. »
