A true nerd for the weirdest and most gorgeous technical gems for a floor. Falling in love with the music over and over again despite self manifested over exposure

[sl001] soundslike… Defunkt (Turtles All The Way Down)

[Addison]: I intend for this mix and the events we have in store for everyone as this year rolls out to re-introduce you to Sounds Like… as a cohesive vision that starts with the music and the perspective our collective wishes to portray and then fractal out from there as time passes. We have carefully chosen to begin the podcast reborn with our current residents one by one for the next few months beginning with a mix born out of true love by Defunkt, as we are now choosing to swim forward. I hope you enjoy installment [sl001] of the soundslike… podcast. Here are Matt’s personal words about this mix:

[Matt:] When I set out to record this mix, I had every intention of releasing the next installment of the Impromptu Mix series. Almost immediately however it became apparent that would not happen…

On August 28th, 2016, we tragically lost our friend, brother, kindred spirit, and captain of the SOUNDSLIKE… ship, Jason Lovel. This mix, from start to finish, was unintentionally derived from the emotions we all have been struggling to control; each track, every ebb and flow of intensity, can in one way or another be traced back to a specific memory, emotion, or experience.

Music is intensely personal and cathartic, providing a direct conduit to the soul. I never set out to record a tribute mix, but here it is anyway.

I love and miss you brother.

vision past the chaos

we find ourselves ready to move forward as one again with the deepest inspiration driving all of us to truly push limits and bend boundaries through dance music and utterly unique spaces and moments. waves of new material and ideas are in motion and headed towards your shore and we will be releasing glimpses of the present and the future very soon and then very consistently while staying true to the ideals that born this vision and allowed it to endure thus far, through both chaotic tragedies and even more meaningful moments of joy and discoverys. turtles all the way down. deep attempts at art and togetherness all the way forward.
