Eric is an exceptionally talented dj, producer and live visual artist. This year he released his debut single on his Bandcamp featuring two very distinct tracks, one of them a 19 minute long ambient exploration. Eric has created a stunning mix simultaneously capturing a sense of lightness and depth which has you drifting through subtle shifts in consciousness.
'I really love the concept for this mix series, diving into and appreciating the spaces between spaces, as well as the reflexive nature of the creation of art. Slowing down and getting lost in the spaciousness of music has been a great source of escape and solace for me this year. Spending less time listening to club-focused music has also inspired me to spend more time reflecting in nature and experimenting with some production of my own, using organic field recordings as a catalyst. Thanks to Space Cast Melbourne for allowing me to share this side of my music collection, putting together this mix felt like a meditative experience for me.'
It's an honour to present the first edition of the Space Cast mix series by good friend and wonderful human, Eric aka Lava Brain. Visual response by Bec Armstrong.
