It’s an established universal truth of the modern world that selfies are shit. They just are. Except, that is, when it’s an audio selfie taken by Jazzanova’s Alex Barck, unveiling six exclusive tracks.
If you haven’t guessed by now, Barck’s ‘audio selfie’ is, in fact, an exclusive DJ mix put together for Clash. One of the founding members of highly influential down-tempo dons and soulful, jazzy house collective Jazzanova, Barck’s skills as a DJ and core part of the Jazzanova engine have long been known and admired. Last year, however, he released his own debut album, ‘Reunion’, the colourful, tropical electronica of which demonstrated his creative prowess as a solo artist – as if there was ever any doubt.
It’s these colourful vibes that Barck showcases in his Clash mix. Featuring a range of exclusive cuts, the mix glides and shimmers through deep-but-sparkling house and techno tinged with exotica that cause an internal dilemma on whether to hit the dancefloor or book a holiday to somewhere lush and sunny. Or as Barck puts it: “I decided to just do an audio selfie of my own stuff. Everything is exclusive and never played before on some platforms. I hope you dig it.”
We do, Alex. We sure do.
