        Dave Wesley, September 23rd 2019

        This wonderful mix rides an in between line of frightening industrial and melancholic intrigue. And, there’s even a smattering of dub techno sprinkled into the recipe. Bonus. Perfect for gray Monday mornings when one is feeling like a replicant.  From the Secret Thirteen intro paragraph: “Rosa Damask is the alias of Nastia Reigel, a Russian […]

        • Exotic Psychedelic Mix from Carla dal Forno

          Dave Wesley, February 26th 2019

          Nothing much to say other than “listen to this”. Carla dal Forno is an Australian singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist, currently based in Berlin. She is a member of the groups F Ingers and Tarcar, and formerly cult Melbourne outfit Mole House.  Her output on one of my favorite labels, Blackest Ever Black is scintillating. Best regards, Dave […]

            • Mix – Secret Thirteen – STM 268 – Bérangère Maximin

              Dave Wesley, October 10th 2018

              With so much readily and freely available music at our collective disposal, the role of curator/mixer/DJ is paramount to discovery and a lean back listening experience.  Secret Thirteen is beyond prolific at introducing new (to me) curators, producers, composers, and sonic artists.   Check out this mix from Bérangère Maximin, who “puts us on a cinematic trip […]

                • Ambient (True) Dub Mix – Secret Thirteen – Jay Glass Dubs

                  Dave Wesley, March 5th 2018

                  The genre “ambient dub” has been co-opted by those pesky dub techno fans (like me)…  but this mix stems from true roots dub and ambient music.  Like all Secret Thirteen mixes, it’s interesting and engaging beyond most. Highly recommended. May the gods not smite you, Dave Wesley – Portugal

                    Dave Wesley, January 4th 2018

                    Travis Just of experimental opera group Object Collection records a mix exploring impulsive creativity and the human voice in all its unfettered variations. This is truly a wonderfully weird and experimental mix.  Listen and you won’t be bored (unless you are head dead). Best regards, David M. Wesley – Porto, Portugal

                    • modyfier – Dan Sherman – Process Part 402 (Visionaries Of The Night)

                      Dave Wesley, November 2nd 2017

                      Modyfier is an Artist’s platform: it’s an idea acting as energy, it’s an experiment in accrual (as a collection), it’s an attitude that rides creativity and freedom. The Process Series relies on referral as people who participate each suggest someone else, creating its form, shifting in directions I would not be able to steer alone. […]
