Our first Mindcast episode in 2019 is an extraordinary vinyl mix by our good friend CHRISSE KUNST, who takes us on a psychedelic journey through mostly eighties tribal, rock and world music, all in a laid back vibe.
Chrisse is a freelance artist and illustrator, record collector, avowed vinyl junkie and a really nice person.
His enthusiasm for architecture brought him in the late nineties to Berlin, where he studied his passion at the UdK.
This may have helped him to find out that his real fascination is to draw instead of build, even if his architectural roots can be seen in many of his art works.
In addition to illustrations, record covers and even video animations, which he creates for clients such as Oliver Koletzki and his label Stil vor Talent, for Süddeutsche Zeitung or Skizze Berlin (just to name a few), his versatile taste in music and his huge record collection are also a big part of his life.
Here are a few words from Chrisse to describe his mix which he called "Der Zeitverlangsamer": "The idea of the mix „der Zeitverlangsamer“ was to have a collection of early experimental tribal and downbeat songs from all around the world. The songs are from the years 1978 - 1990 and i tried to take songs that are kind of timeless and not clear to say how old they are. It is only Vinyl used in the mix starting with a radio play from Stanislav Lem, where also the name is taken from."
