This edition of Bleep’s mix series finds Simisea (Brandon Sánchez) from RVNG Intl. leading us on a deep dive into both the label’s own releases and music admired by those involved with the acclaimed imprint. As anyone familiar with the RVNG Intl. aesthetic might expect, this is a varied and expansive set of blends - across almost fifty-five minutes here Simisea takes in widescreen spiritual music, outer-edges electronics, dreamy post-jazz, harmonious folk-rock and pretty much everything in-between. The fact that Lucrecia Dalt, Coil, Sugai Ken and The Soft Pink Truth are just a few of the artists to feature should indicate how this mix manages to strike a great balance between compositional ambition and lush sonics. It all makes for a delightful trip.
"I’ve been wanting to make a non-dance mix for a while. A lot of the music in this mix has comforted me throughout quarantine. It includes tracks that have brought me euphoria, to tears, and all ranges and depths of emotions and states of being, embodying the kind of music I associate with RVNG."
