For this White Light Mix I chose selections from my record collection based on different interpretations of the word “space” whether it be the head space the song puts me in, the space I remember first hearing the song, the space the song was recorded in, the space the players give each other, or the sense of physical space it maintains or creates either sonically, lyrically, or both.
This mix is dripping with nostalgia for me. While touring across Canada in bands I would often take the night time driving shifts specifically to get to listen to music like this. It put everyone else to sleep but for some reason kept me wide awake and focussed. So this mix is for me, 10 years ago, driving through the Rockies at 4am so we could get to our free hotel room in Golden, BC.
