New month, new Mutecast. This time we welcome Aether, a musician thoroughly embraced by the RTFKT heart. If we would keep track of everything we listen too he would find a top spot in "most played playlist" over at the RTFKT headquarters. We spotted him first when hearing his amazing remix for Pazes at the beginning of 2011 and now, exactly one year later, we are really proud to present this 30 min mixtape full of gems he made for us.
As you might remember, the RTFKT baby was born somewhere around the cold december days of 2010. A few weeks later we adopted our favourite animal, the owl, as our logo. Rewind a little, and you'd find that at the end of 2008, Aether released his first album titled ‘Artifacts’. And guess what!? Down in the right corner of the album artwork sits a beautiful dark brown owl on a cliff. Coincedence? No way, this must be destiny!
Anyway, this is what Aether has to say about himself, his music and this mix: My name is Diego Chavez and I'm originally from San Antonio, TX. I currently reside in Boston, MA. I get obsessed with the process of making songs. Slowly adding layer upon layer till I get the wall of sound I’m looking for. I treat remixing a track as I would a sample that has one detail I want to sculpt out and use for my context. Lately I have been getting more official asks for remixes but I still love a bootleg remix too. I have three albums/projects I want to release this year. Till those are finished I’ll keep the remixes, mix-tapes and occasional song coming out on my Soundcloud page. I’ve been getting some great feedback on there and I’m happy to meet so many people that like the same type of tunes as I do. I had a great time working on this mixtape. Thank you.
No thank you! Enjoy, dear listener!
