We’re back with what will be our last mix of the year (don’t worry, 2011 will start with a bang…) and it’s one of my favorite Keep Watches that we’ve done. This 42 minute voyage into the depths of the abyss is the first DJ mix courtesy of genre innovator Pictureplane (this mix was actually finished prior to the release of Happy Slow Core). For our 22nd edition of the Keep Watch series, Pictureplane delivers a really smooth blend of tracks from different walks of life that meet at the edge of the world and plunge into eternal darkness.
This pleasurable piece starts off with the deeper side of future Techno with 3024 label boss Martyn, traveling to Girl Unit’s “Every Time,” onto a slew of eclectic and lesser-known dance jams from this year before getting real with Drake’s rendition of TLC’s “I Get Lonely” and a Pictureplane edit of Zomby’s “Strange Fruit.” Lay back, get comfortable and switch your settings to loop; we promise you’re in for a never-ending journey into darkness and unknown pleasures.

Pictureplane AKA Travis Edgy is a conceptual artist based out of Denver, Colorado, interested in post modern chaos magic, cyber punks, individualist anarchism, the evolution and rapid transformation of consciousness and the reasons of sexual arousal within different human beings.
He is currently putting the finishing touches on his follow-up record to his critically lauded album, Dark Rift. The new record deals with sexuality, post humanism, physical sensation and sensory fetishism within technology and the human hand. Look for it in the spring of 2011 on Lovepump United.
