Oyster Playlist: Genius of Time
To get you ready for their Sydney show tonight!
The Swedish duo Genius of Time are finally in Sydney and ready to weave their electronic music magic. Hailing from Göteborg, Alexander Berg and Nils Krogh have been producing tip top house since 2010 all on their very own label Aniara Recordings.
Tonight, Genius of Time will be debuting their first live set in Sydney at the Civic Hotel supported by locals Jimmi 2 Sox, Kali, Andy Webb, Saloon Bar DJs, Marcus King, Toni Toni Lee and our very own Deputy Editor/in-house DJ Ariane.
To get you in the mood, the boys kindly put together a playlist of what music would play if time was standing still.
1. 'Black Hole Time Travel' — Stephen Hawking
Food for thought.
2. Laurie Spiegel plays Alles Synth
Laurie Spiegel space synth jam from 1977!
3. Sides Of Space — D5
Albert Einstein once said that, "The most beautiful thing we can experience is the mysterious. It is the source of all true art and all science." That kind of feeling might be hard to explain, but techno does it well.
4. 'Tape Matching' — Delia Derbyshire
Delia Derbyshire was a true pioneer of electronic music. This is how you played with samples back in the day. Boss!
5. 'Östermalm' — The Persuader
We had to put one Svek record in this playlist, and this one catches the vibe of swedish deep house from the late 90s.
6. 'Galaxy In Turiya' — Alice Coltrane
Taken from her sixth album World Galaxy which is well worth checking out.
7. 'You Don't Act The Same' — Schatrax
One of our favourite producers from the UK. Mysterious dance music!
8. 'Astral Traveling' — Pharaoh Sanders
The title describes this song pretty well. Beautiful improvisations.
9. 'Electromagnetic Dowsing' — DeepChord
Simple, amazing, all time favourite.
10. 'Sketch For Summer' — Durutti Column
For our last track, lets return to Earth with this beautiful Manchester gem.
11. Genius Of Time Boiler Room Live Set
If time stood still I'd hope it was for 53 mins and this got stuck on repeat! Genius doesn't even cut it!
