The Venezuelan duo select tunes from Âme, Efdemin, DJ Koze and Slam on their first official mix.
"We had a very clear idea of what we wanted to do," say the duo, whose Balance Presents mix follows previous efforts from Kölsch, Guy J and jozif. "We wanted a timeless mix that you can put in your car, listen at home, or any place that you want, having a story being told in an hour or so. It's that kind of music that has no expiry date. We mixed the compilation live in Barcelona, at Israel's house, with Traktor and an Allen & Heath mixer. We really wanted to have that DJ feeling, the actual feeling of it being mixed, not just dropping the tracks on Ableton and mapping automations."
The 18-track selection features tunes and remixes from the likes of Âme, Mathew Jonson & The Mole, Luke Slater, DJ Koze, Michael Mayer, Barnt, Efdemin and Slam. There are also three exclusive tracks: one from Francesca Lombardo, another from Fur Coat themselves and an Agoria remix of Metronomy.
