Wednesday is humpday, which not only marks the halfway point between the work week and the coveted weekend, but also Conscious Electronic’s Midweek Mantra Mix (M3). We’ve been scouring the web’s most enlightening bass music mixes that align with our vision, to provide “a conscious way to consume dance music.” M3 spotlights both veteran and up-and-coming bass music artists whose music seeks to raise the vibrations of their collective listener base.
Coming as the third M3 transmission is MIZE‘s DIVE mixtape, a 32-minute showcase of all-original downtempo productions, along with plenty of IDs. MIZE is a rising bass music artist out of the Deep South, which is where he gained a love for hip-hop. He’s released on two burgeoning bass music collectives, from 40 Ounce to Wavecraft. As he’s begun growing his experimental bass catalogue, it was high time for a mixtape that took his sound to the next level.
He says the idea for the project arose out of a conversation with rising visual artist DATABYTE, who he met in the Bassnectar community. The two wanted to showcase their talents alongside each other but, at the time, MIZE didn’t have enough material to fill an entire mixtape. As the winter months came, he began writing more ambient music, and the two eventually crafted a raw audio-visual immersive experience that takes its audience deep into the depths of their mind.
“This project is a raw, live, visual and audio experience for those times when you want to unwind and sink into a puddle,” MIZE tells Electric Hawk. “You may notice small mistakes in our live mixing but we wanted it to keep it as raw and human as possible.”
More than anything else, MIZE’s DIVE mix encourages listeners to fall deep into the meditative spaces of their mind’s eye, taking them on a soothing sonic journey to another time and place. Witness the entire visual experience below and stream the track here.
