The Grandfather Paradox “50 Years of Minimalism”

House / Techno

Holy frikkin sh*t! Front runner for compilation / mix of 2009 so far. Âme, Henrik Schwarz and Dixon collaborate on this journey through 50 years of minimal music, and we’re not talking about only minimal house here… from early electro, disco, jazz-funk, to today’s minimal house/tech sound.

Love this definition of minimalist music “mostly in consonant harmony, steady pulse (if not immobile drones), stasis and slow transformation, and often reiteration of musical phrases or smaller units such as figures, motifs, and cells.”
