UCR #054

November 12, 2019



After being absent for many months, we would like to revive our podcast series by introducing you to one of the finest artists we could ever present – Danaga!
This superb producer was born and raised in one of the wildest and mysterious areas of the old continent: the region of Transylvania, in Romania, where he grew up in the analog era, studying the classic guitar and the piano and collecting music on cassettes. The secrecy and mystique of that land is well represented in Danaga’s productions, which are beautifully displayed in the live recording. For this Mix he used Elektron Analog Keys, Hohner Pianet T, Memory Man Analog Delay, a cheap romanian Stratocaster Guitar, Kaoss Pad, PVC homemade flutes and various percussion instruments. It comes as a sort of music diary telling of the ‘transformative experience’ he went through while experimenting with those Instruments in the last years. Unlike other mixes of our series, this is not a musical journey, but rather a flow which is neither meant to lead anywhere, nor to serve a function. It is only meant to be. This intriguing concept follows the ideas of the British philosopher and writer Alan Watts, which inspired Danaga while recording the mix. We wish you all a wonderful awakening.
