Above The Clouds #16 w/ Katiusha & slowfoam: Monsoon

15 September 2020

Back from the Cashmere break with a heady guest mix from Seattle-hailing sound artist Slowfoam: this month’s music pays tribute to the monsoon cloud as it washes in a new season of life.

Slowfoam on the guest mix (00:00-55:00): “I made this mix to pay tribute to nostalgic memories of what monsoons in the Sonoran Desert used to be. Long, blindingly hot, dry days would stretch out as the storm clouds built in the distance, waiting for the stinging sun to cool just enough. The first sign that they were moving in was the smell of sweet creosote and wet dirt in the air, and then, in a matter of moments, torrential downpour. From the top of a mountain, you could see the clouds moving swiftly around the valley and lightning striking every couple seconds. The rains let up as quickly as they came on. It was epic, it was moody, and it was always a sweet relief to be happily soaked by these dense storms. This June was the hottest on record in the desert, and monsoons have been scarce. I’m mourning the impact we’ve had on the natural cycles of the larger, older world, and simultaneously celebrating with hope for what was and what could be again.”
