Why Don’t You? (Bardo Thodol)

An unfolded hypercube kite floats above the hidden laughter of children “Or say that the end precedes the beginning,
And the end and the beginning were always there
Before the beginning and after the end.
And all is always now.”– T.S. Eliot. Excerpt from part V of of “Burnt Norton” from Four Quartets.

  1. Nathan Zahn Says:

    Great mix ! I have been pursuing the art of djing for well over a decade and I have a huge passion for quality underground dance music. We’ve all heard countless mixes over the years and only a few of them stand out like this one. I think you’ve put together a solid mix representing the current state of cutting edge house/tech/minimal/whatever. Keep up the good work!

  2. Timothy Treadwell's Ghost Says:

    If my life could have been transmuted into music, it would have been this mix. I would never have dreamed the latent homosexuality that drove me yearly to Alaska to live with bears, marvel over their droppings, and speak enviously of the ease with which gays are able to procure sex in truckstops could be so richly conveyed in sound. As soon as I’m done with this review I’ll talk to God on your behalf.

    Hey Nathan, I’ve never thanked you proper for your amazing review. I can’t thank you enough.

    In the meantime, I’ve been enjoying your twisted, glitchy goodness! For readers (un)familiar with Mr. Zahn’s handiwork, allow me:

    “Nathan Zahn is a long time veteran of the Prairie electronic music scene having helped found Winnipeg’s Symptom Technologies in 1996. Since the mid-nineties warehouse rave days he hasn’t stopped throwing wild parties while continuing to perfect and evolve his now legendary DJ skills. It is those skills that have given Nathan invitations to play gigs in such far flung locations as Buenos Aires, Montevideo, Tel Aviv, Glastonbury and Istanbul. Weather it is a set of groovy minimal or a peak hour mix of big room tech house, Nathan always keeps the vibe funky and twisted!”
