A Sound Like No Other: Milky Joe’s Exclusive Wellington Mix

DJ/producer, Milky Joe, was so impressed by the local Wellington original music he was hearing that he curated and mixed this collection of recent releases by Wellington based artists across a spectrum including electronic, ambient and indie. This doesn’t have the smooth flow generally associated with dj mixes, but given the variety of material used, that is probably a good thing. A selection of strategically placed spoken word samples, including an explanation of the origins of Wellington electronic music, enhance the transitions from track to track as the listener is moved from the ambient washes of i.ryoko to the cosmic groove of Orchestra of Spheres to the art-rock of Cookie Brooklyn & the Crumbs and on to the lovely indie sounds of Terror of the Deep. If anyone is interested in what is happening under the radar in Wellington then this is essential listening.
