For the first-ever UK episode of Trainwreck, I was inspired by the thought of an astronaut that is forbidden to look back at Earth on their way to potentially colonize a far-off planet, on which no humans yet exist. The astronaut is forbidden, according to Mission Control, because viewing Earth would require leaving the control room and scaling the side of the ship's exterior - a move that would almost certainly result in the death of the astronaut and the failure of the mission.
The astronaut desperately wants to see Earth from space, but knows that fulfilling this desire may result in the end of life - both for themselves and for the future of planet Earth. But in their own eyes, the astronaut already feels dead - they will never return to Earth, and if they did, all of their family and friends will have already died. The planet to which they are traveling is also dead (or not yet born). The more the Astronaut thinks in this liminal space, the more they realize that viewing Earth and risking death would be infinitely more rewarding than taking orders from Mission Control, all the while slowly dying in all but body. So they go for it.
It's a little like the myth of Orpheus and Eurydice, and made me think about what would happen if humanity tried to colonize planets in the future, especially in the initial stages. That "nothing to lose mentality" of colonization results in both personal freedom and total chaos/ violence on a societal level, which I wanted to reflect in the mix.
I recorded this mix in my bedroom on Traktor, because there were some effects I wanted to use that weren't available in the studio. I hope you enjoy it ☆
It's been a cold week, and Halloween is fast approaching.
Join DJ Catnip for another hour of all things dark and questionable as he attempts to remember how the new studio mixer works.
