I have divided my playlist into four sections of five songs each… Together we will explore four different themes of the Apocalypse in chronological order. The themes are titled: Warning Signs, The Fall, The Aftermath and Beyond The Grave. By doing this I hope you can experience the music in a new light and treat the playlist and the subsections within it as a soundtrack to a narrative.
I hope you can enjoy my playlist. Introducing my take on “The sounds of the apocalypse…”
PART 4 / BEYOND THE GRAVE
The last section of my playlist I wanted to take a positive spin or at least a hopeful spin on how humanity or perhaps AI pushes through and progresses beyond what was lost into a new future that we can only imagine.
This song was written by Schism, which is the collaborative project between DJ Heroin & Hnrk. This beautiful song is also very visual. I can imagine something like this: In some parts of the world, new communities have formed, people have experienced disaster at its peak and have shifted their mental state. They want to create a better world and they endeavor to do it together.
I actually mixed this song into Respliced Hymn during my DJ set at Redbud Studios so by default I feel like they are connected to each other. “Conditions are improving and the perseverance of the people is going a long way there is progress being made and new technology is developing.”
I felt like it’s time to pick up the mood again and this song fits exactly with what I was feeling! Finally there is song with rhythmic structure in the playlist again haha. We’re far into the future now… Progress is developing rapidly and a new era is born. I really feel that this song represents the era of Artificial Intelligence or something like that. Maybe humans are already long gone.
Asura is a very peaceful and beautiful song and I think it’s very appropriate to describe a new era of life on Earth. Following with where we left off with Machina, I think technology has reach a plateaux. I feel like they are living in the skies by now.
DELAY. Is one of my favorite producers ever so I wanted to squeeze one his songs in here somewhere! He has come to Japan twice now and I hope that he can he get the appreciation he deserves out here in Japan! For the ending to our story I think our new civilization has already gone way beyond human comprehension and at this point anything is possible!
Thanks for listening!
“dosing (short for Dreaming of Sleeping) are a Tokyo-based collective of artists and musicians designing dreamscapes with the insomniac in mind, drawing inspiration from the shackles of sleep deprivation. The innovators at dosing deliver a welcomed breath of life into the Tokyo underground nightlife scene by producing and promoting forward-thinking art/music and organizing events previously only conceivable in dreams.”

He has supported world renowned acts such as XXYYXX, as well as performing at New Zealand’s largest New Year’s music festival, Rhythm and Vines. He was involved in the creation and organisation of an independent music festival called Chronophonium, which quickly generated a cult following. After moving to Osaka, Japan in 2013, he continued to perform around various locations in Osaka, Kyoto and Tokyo before relocating to Tokyo in 2014. He performed as a resident DJ for White Rabbit and played a supporting show for OWSLA’s ETNIK. In 2015, Electric Candy Sand began to produce his own blend of electronic music, merging together ideas from a wide range of genre’s, from hip hop to juke and other forms of bass music. After teaming up with HIRO THA JAP (Sex Cult Records) and Steffen ￥oshiki, the three of them went on to form dosing (dreaming of sleeping), an event planning and production company as well as a collective of musicians and artists, hosting regular events in Shibuya, Aoyama.
