To complete the Blanck Mass takeover, here's a throwback his 2015 Fader Mix. "This is a little more of a departure from the usual type of mix I tend to do. It's a little less fractured, perhaps. More 'club friendly.' So perhaps that's what the listener would be doing. Dancing. Or driving. Probably not reading a book."


Damon Krukowski discusses the deep history of humans and music with Gary Tomlinson, author of A Million Years of Music, in Lapham’s Quarterly:

"Music gets cast in the middle of human symbol systems but in and of itself has no symbolic array. This is why music seems so abstract."

Thanks for listening!
