The Textures series showcases the diverse and eclectic shades of Merkaba Music, selected from the depths of the label catalog.
released January 1, 2019
My background is steeped in musical journeys, from playing in high school rock and funk bands to DJing vinyl for 7+ years and then entering the world of live electronic music, I love the art of piecing together a tapestry of sounds and music to carry the listener through an emotional and textural landscape. Last year I took a big breath and a big long look at the journey of Merkaba Music and realized what an incredibly large and diverse catalog had been created. I imagined a passionate music lover, or crate digger as we were called in the vinyl scene, coming across this immense co-creation of music and art and feeling a little overwhelmed. The real devoted ones would dive right in knowing that it might be hours of searching to get through it all and other might just listen to a few and bookmark it for another day.
So I decided to create some label mixes to showcase a wide variety and diversity of the content on the label. It started out as a mini series of 3 or 4 mixes but as I dug deeper into the catalogue I realized that it would take at least 8 stories to capture what I intended.
I spend months putting together groups of tracks and then in March of 2018 while having some down-time in Bali I set up a couch and small DJ table overlooking a beautiful Balinese tropical garden where I was staying. I then immersed myself in the music and nature and mixed these 8 musical journeys live in the moment to capture the essence of Merkaba Music and its journey over the years.
