In advance of the 2015 Communikey Festival, we tapped Experimental Housewife to record a Headphone Commute mix showcasing the more ambient-leaning portion of the CMKY 2015 programming.
You may have heard that this year’s edition of the Communikey Festival is set to be our last, as we are set to retire the format in order to focus on the next stage of their creative evolution. It’s a bittersweet occasion for us; as such, Experimental Housewife intended for this mix to serve as a lamentation for the festival’s end and an ode to what is yet to come.
Bookended by a pair of tracks from the lauded Silent Season artist Segue, the mix traverses a wide range of styles, from Charles Cohen and Neel’s modular abstractions to the flickering drones of Colorado-based artist Radere and beyond. The end result is an evocative mix that is at turns both friendly and creepy, calling to mind the very atmosphere of the Front Range region itself as it moves through its shadowy soundscapes.

- Segue – Turning Patterns
- FOANS – Conversion 4
