Clash DJ Mix – Ghosting Season

A haunting selection...

Manchester duo Ghosting Season weave together a haunting selection for the Clash DJ Mix that will exorcise any dark techno demons lurking deep within.

After deciding that their long-running Worriedaboutsatan alias couldn’t fully contain the new direction their music was taking, Gavin Miller and Thomas Ragsdale began anew as Ghosting Season, an evolved version of their former project. Like Worriedaboutsatan, Ghosting Season harnesses sprawling, icy electronica – reminiscent of moody masters like Autechre and The Black Dog – but with leanings towards dark techno pastures as well as more organic, instrument-led layers.

For their Clash mix, Miller and Ragsdale ease in gently with a selection of atmospheric slow-burners, including Walls’ psyche-Krautrocker Sam Willis and Swedish experimentalist Porn Sword Tobacco, gradually getting darker and deeper, traversing through Ultrademon’s spacious dub-techno before a Peter Van Hoesen track lifts the lid off. A cut from Moderat’s new album and Tangerine Dream then bring things to a mellow(ish) close.
