Secret Thirteen Mix 103# Lustmord
To celebrate Brian ‘Lustmord’ William’s 50th birthday “Secret Thirteen Mix’s” presents his one and only exclusive mix that should draw the fresh view to his world.
“Secret Thirteen Mix 103” is an intuitive and sensuous audio selection that reveals Lustmord’s early indirect musical influences and recently found gems he adores listening at home. Some of the mixed tracks have a direct influence on his personal creations, especially on the space between the notes. Lustmord believes this mix made of his favourite records should introduce to the audience some artists they may not have been aware of before or just fill their intimate space with mostly live and open sounds. According to Lustmord, his candid mix doesn’t hide any concrete emotional narrative and doesn’t carry any hidden message behind the fluently developing wholeness. However, this mix sounds are very conceptual, thoughtfully developed and emotionally charged. Even though these diverse tracks vary between different generations’ composing and recording principles, Lustmord has found excellent way how to transform his eclectic selection into one sustained and continuous recording. Compilation includes 19 records released between 1957 and 2009. Unforgettable and kaleidoscopic works by honourable musicians such as Jacob Miller, Bohren & Der Club Of Gore, Keith Hudson, Rhythm & Sound, Locust, Mark Pritchard and other talents simply relax and awaken sensitiveness. There are also 2 original soundtracks taken from such legendary films as “Alien” and “Get Carter” and even authentic music from the historical compilation CD “Negro Prison Songs”. It also includes Lustmord’s dubby remix of Puscifer’s track “Children of Dub”. It is not surprising to hear a lot of subtly echoing and lightly waving production included in this mix because Lustmord was listening to dub music since the late 1970’s while purchasing Jamaican vinyl imports. The basis of this compilation stands on the mostly live recorded viscous rhythm patterns, expressive singing, intensive textures transferred through pedal effects and the whole gradually shifting atmosphere that is saturated with masterfully played guitar chords, subtle percussion and rich melodies generated with different live instruments. However, this mix includes some high-quality abyssal and cosmic, strictly electronic music too. This versatile selection remarkably fits to private environment, because of its lightly complex motion, and is also perfect for working background because of its melodic and structural variety. It feels like the mood and tension of Lustmord’s mix indirectly reflect Salvador Dali’s expressionistic painting “Moonlight” where abstract forms create a state of mystery, nostalgia, mind and soul. Finally it is a great reincarnation of valuable records that were summoned by a real musical sorcerer.
