AV Mix Series - Daniel K

AV Mix Series - Daniel K

Our AV Mix Series returns — Number 35 comes from our very own TAV's Creative Director & Store Manager, Daniel Koh. A sprawling two hour and forty minutes plus mix that goes beyond the common trajectory by infusing the track list with moods and grooves. It expands to include rare groove, funk, jazz and soul and then heads straight into electronic territory by way of house & techno.

"It's always a daunting task to assemble a setlist of favourite tracks and condense it to an hour or two. There's so much music out there and to say this is absolutely stating the obvious. On this mix, the aim is to encapsulate the titles and genres we carry in-store and at the same time letting you in on where my headspace is with my own playlists. It's gratifying to sift through all our titles, discover gems along the way and I've been fortunate enough to do so.

Genres shouldn't exist in a vacuum but it does effectively aid in describing the artists and titles especially in a music store. So I hope this mix piques a sense of curiosity in you. Recorded in the wee hours of the morning (starting at 6am!) and stretching across multiple genres across over 2 hours. I sincerely hope you enjoy this mix and that it rewards you with each new listen." — Daniel
