The first podcast of mixedalone for allalonemagazine is presented by Offenbach’s local hero Sannikow from the truelovesounds gang.
A red thread of obscurity runs through the home recorded 120 min mix with delightful ease. Sannikow pilots the listeners through the trippiest corners of their mind where gloomy flavored soundscapes extend in their own universe. Clear sounds ranging from dark undertones up to shadowy minimalistic features laced with some of the finest mixing skills are provided to us for a call to action.
