Blending the sonic warmth with the visual nostalgia of cassette tapes, Altered Soul Experiment aims to use the medium of mix tapes to reflect the personal touch and inspiration from the music industry’s early years.
Limited to 150 units per release, each artist chosen will be able to express their musical experiments via a 90 minute mix allowing a personal at-home listening experience. Furthermore the tapes will provide the avid listener a chance to search for specific tracks within each mix, translating into a unique exploratory experience.
The series starts with a warm, soul-infused mix by Volcov, which proves to be an excellent selector of boogie and soul. The mix provides a one and a half hour experience that contains a distinct narrative.
Scattered chatty voices and dancefloor-boogie move to a calm funky swish before resulting in sweet melodies that are sprinkled with emotionally charged lyrics. The mix ranges from The Controller's classic "Stay" to Hi-Tension, where David Joseph's vocals embrace you with every single "Girl I Betcha", to bangers such as the Cargo Feat. Dave Collins "Holding On For Love". All in all, it is reflecting a warm, groovey journey through time and rhythms, creating a powerful body of songs drawn in liquid smooth shapes.
