Mixes: Silent Servant

John Juan Mendez a.k.a. Silent Servant makes dark, almost brutal, techno music inspired by obscure post-punk. His 2012 album Negative Fascination was only 40 minutes but covered so much ground that it feels vast. The album’s gothic and alien with undecipherable vocal samples and intense bass thundering throughout.

While his previous release was ominous and scary his recent mix Songs For Sleep is almost blissful. It is still dark but more ambient and experimental, combining the droaning beauty of Fennesz with the creepy ramblings of Psychic TV. This is one of the most intriguing mixes I have heard all year, give it a listen and see what you think.
