Strange
: different from what is usual, normal, or expected
: not known, heard, or seen before
: not entirely comfortable or well

At my ever ending pursuit of using tracks I have not used yet, I've decided to create this strange journey.
From the very start I knew it would be a strange one, which is perfect. Strangeness does have this certain unique appeal to it, which I've always found myself intrigued by.
Strange is a collection of beautifully unique intriguing sounds and layers, a collection of flawed rare gems.

I truly hope you all find the beauty I have found in my own strangeness, stay true folks, cheers!

I been super busy in real life (hence my lack of support), my sincere apologies as I am trying to catch up, my work schedule is VERY socially unfriendly, but with that being said, I would like to thank you each every one of you for listening, favorite, re-posting, sharing!

Four months in, still my favourite mix on Mixcloud. The "Release Yourself" and "There are Things" parts are just perfect.

My apologies regarding to the time I have committed to leave any type of feedback. The first time I heard it was something brief, so recently I have decided to focus more and hear it with patience and time. Well, as usual, lovely mixing, transitions neatly perfect and soft, track selection is amazing. As the name says, it is something that scopes a bit of your "normal sounds" but is still, a lovely piece with an outstanding quality. Thanks for sharing it out Bowz, salut!

Disgracingly late I finally can write an in deep comment after listening to the mix five times. I was on the search for "strange", for me it always has a meaning of making you shrug and look puzzled. After all, I haven't found "strange" in this negative meaning. What I listened to was "different" or maybe "adventurous", so scratch the two other meanings, "different from what is usual or expected" fits it best, although I must admit, what I expected from this mix, was a journey with soul, needless to mention, technically perfect and with new perspectives on music. And that's what I found. The Calm set paths for what to expect, but Flight of Birds leaves you simply stunned. I can only repeat what was said so often here, the strings just trigger the limbic system, make you shiver and enjoy. Release yourself puts in the dynamic side, it rushes you over to your Former Self and then over to Dive Into The Deepest, which has the characteristic fingerprint of Mr Plex on it, unusual vocals and it simply takes you in, builds energy with a small pause before Naughty Forest puts it further. Then a small pause to take breath, calmer sounds in Acid Control carry on what There Are Things started, the richness of sounds calms down, it focuses on the main theme. But it can't be it, this mix has to go with a boom so Giant Causeway starts pushing it up again. I like the constantly rising atmosphere, the aural sounds widening the spectrum again, so much to listen to, music surrounds you but it's the right entrance for Alluvion. Agoria is one of my favs in pure instrumental so I know from how the tracks are built, that there is more to come and here it comes, For Fear Tonight, which is clearly one gem of a track, with vocals giving me chills. So again, I went on a journey to look for something I so enjoy about your mixes and I found it, no matter which color it has. You put soul into music and that's what always leaves me stunned. One hour passes by in a blink framed in my two favorites of this mix, Flight Of Birds and For Fear Of Tonights which leave me listening to this mix again and again. Thank you for making music so enjoyable.

Another Masterpiece mate, I loved the deep and driving selection you have chosen and was totally captivated all throughout the mix. You complete with an outstanding track ''For Fear Tonight is All''. This worked terrifically well with me Daniel, Chapeau Bas !

1,337 favorites in your list, but 9 listens... listen Danny you dont have to lower yourself this much to get an extra view mate, i know you didnt listen to my set, and the reason people dont listen yours is this right here: you dont support anyone, nobody supports you. rather you get 1 listen of 1000 listens in your set, truth is.. lame people such as yourself never make the cut, you're fighting a lost battle fella. Good day
