The Healing Field


Watch or Listen to The Healing Field

I sat on this mix for half a year. It was finished in December 2019 in preparation for the first DJ set I ever had. This mix was born out of what would be the beginning of a rocky road--personally, emotionally, and also worldly. A global pandemic struck. Protests hit the streets after the murders of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, and so many more black people. I was miserable when it all came to a clash, and I receded to nostalgia for therapy.


I started my second playthrough of Mother 3, one of my favorite games of all time. The story copes with death, family, and growing up sooner than you'd expected. And as I write this in the midst of civil unrest and the first wave of a health crisis, I find hope that there will be healing, and ultimately, a rebirth.



Enjoy a mix featuring lo-fi beats, 80s French post-disco electro-pop, Japanese bossa nova, old school hip-hop, and an Italian blues track that might rip your heart out. This mix serves as the spiritual sequel to La Petite Mort.
