  • A spellbinding mix inspired by the concept of chiaroscuro, or the contrast between dark and light.

  • "This mix deconstructs the chiaroscuro ethos from Renaissance era and expresses it through a sonic form," says Vietnamese DJ Anh Phi. "It's an evolving play on contrasts: lights and darkness, soft and hard, classical and modern, organic and electronic, joyful and mellow, slow and fast, human and digital, east and west, tension and release. One would not exist without its opposite, empowering each other mutually." The result is a beautifully paced mix that moves from ambient to burbling techno to pumping, yet still light-footed, trance.
