This was the first mix I made that was driven by theme and not by what was new at the time. I began with a 1 Mile North track that I'd been obsessively playing for weeks, and began tossing other pieces into the stew as they occurred to me.
So yes, there is a theme here, of chimes and trills and reverberation. It begins as guitar harmonics, and the plucked guitar string carries through, until Windy & Carl dissolve it into aether and lovesliescrushing exorcise it. After that the electronic oscillator takes over, entering as pure sound but accreting overtones and warmth.
A friend asked me "why is it called Shiver when it sounds so warm?", and that's because it's not about cold, it's about the shiver I get from a certain kind of scary beauty. And you too, I hope.
