FROM THE VAULTS: Colleen – Live dublab Mix (09.01.06)


Fall into a dreamy one-hour mix from Colleen that’s able to spark curiosity, instill extreme calm, and offer a thoughtful salve to the anxieties of modern life.

In the September of 2006, Cecille Schott joined dublab for what is (as far as we know) the last of her excellent unheard live mixes from the dublab vaults. Schott has always blessed our airwaves with a consistent tone both as an artist of sound and as a selector, with a creative vision that resists easy description. The songs here evoke a sense of wanderlust while being reflective and even dark at times, while the music in each is perfect for a tired mind at rest.
