OHM Podcast: Mr. Beatnick presents Sun Ra



Classic hashtag. #uneasylistening.

A mix for that academic in you, this is will expose you to the genius that was Sun Ra. Mr Beatnick, a RBMA alum, producer, writer and all around renaissance man has put together a mix for One Handed Music. As he puts it:

"Struck by the enormity of the cosmic task at hand, I ended up with snapshots from a range of Ra's work. You have the ballads, the standards, the poetry and the freak-outs all balanced in harmony, just as it was in a typical Arkestra performance, darkness counterpointed with bursts of bright frenetic energy. A lot of focus is on the 70s, partly cause that was a prolific and funky time for the band, partly just cause it's my favourite period. I wish I could have made it 12 hours long and got in all the tracks I wanted to, and the mix wouldn't have been possible without Kirk DeGiorgio and Max Cole who put me on to a ton of these tracks, so this is dedicated to them with astral thanks. There are other worlds they have not told you of, that wish to speak to you."
