TiED Guest mix today comes from James Alaska of The Alaska None, who has kindly created a journey mix for TiED that vibrates your tympanic membrane and ossicular chain creating a sonic adventure. I managed to find a quiet moment for an hour yesterday, sitting in the sun by Scrabo Tower looking over the causeway towards the Scottish Highlands and remembered I had this mix on my iPod. So amongst the sound of nature, with the occasional background sound of a light aircraft from a nearby airfield,  the engines quietly fading in and out of my conciousness along with what was the perfect sound track for the time and space I found myself in.

James on his selection.

“I really enjoyed putting this together. It’s definitely for the more dedicated sets of ears, quite abstract in places, but really reflects a lot of the music I reverence at the moment. It’s definitely for either quiet late night or that 6 a.m. time when you’re starting to slip in and out of consciousness and reality”

The Alaska One is currently unsigned, but already has international performances booked in Germany and India this year, visit his Myspace Page for more information on up and coming gigs, and listen to the recent works of The Alaska One.

Now find yourself a quite corner somewhere, switch your phone off, and place your headphones on and enjoy this trip.

    Mind bending. I thought this was going to be rubbish when I heard the opening rustles…..then it breaks…… Pure joy, not heard many of these bands / DJs before. Thanks for introducing me to some really cool stuff.

    proper far out mix this one – I’m sure I’ll come back to this again and again. Thanks James.
