QuiQui – Multiverse Melodies [Wintermix 2014]


QuiQui is an Amsterdam based DJ and Producer, better known as Jeroen Wiggers. He has touched wide range of musical styles  during his search for his own distinctive sound. He combined all his inspirations and mixing skills to create this mix – which took him three months. His main goal was to stretch his creative boundaries – and so he did! It resulted in a recording of 93 minutes including 57 tracks. A pretty stunning variety of artists and genres covering a broad timespan (1968 till 2013). In my opinion it sounds very great and the mixing is very well done. What I do like the most of this mix is the originality of this mix, the tracklist is just sublime. He truly deserves some more support and plays. So please take some time to listen and hopefully you’ll appreciate his hard work.

The biggest challenge was to ‘glue’ all these totally different styles, atmospheres and emotions together. I’ve used some ‘field recordings’, which are basically just recordings of an environment such as the beach or a jungle. I combined these with short loops from a lot of minimal- and dub techno tracks.
Due to its complexity, listening to this mix is probably not enjoyable for everyone. Therefore, the reactions from those who do take the time to listen and appreciate it, are even more important to me. I’ve put a lot time and especially a lot of fun in making this, I hope you’ll enjoy listening to it just as much!
