I DON’T KNOW WHAT THEY ARE CALLED, THE SPACES BETWEEN SECONDS, BUT I THINK OF YOU ALWAYS IN THOSE INTERVALS
Today I’m proud to present you a mix by Ian Hazeldine, producing under the moniker Antonymes, whose work has appeared numerous times on Headphone Commute, most notably his last two fantastic albums, which have both been selected for our Best of the Year lists, The Licence To Interpret Dreams (Hidden Shoal, 2011) and There Can Be No True Beauty Without Decay (hibernate, 2013).
When Headphone Commute asked me to produce a mix I was truly honoured. I wanted to deliver something very different to any mix I’d done before. I’d been listening to a lot of jazz and wanted it to be a focus. The starting point was Jimmy Scott’s astonishing vocal on “Sycamore Tree”. For this reason it sits in the exact centre of the mix. I’ve included pieces by long admired artists and dear friends. Music is a special, powerful thing. I’ve been on magical, spiritual journey since my first musical awakening in 1967. Listen, appreciate and enjoy. This mix is dedicated to my dearly missed mother.
