On constant rotation in my digital players right now: Aaron Clark’s closing mix from the recent HONCHO, Pittsburgh’s monthly all night queer rager at Hot Mass. Aaron’s been doing great work for a long time now both with the Humanaut crew and with his HONCHO buddy Edgar Um, but the sheer seductive power of this mix is sending me over the edge. Starting deep and housey and gently tugging us into ethereal techno realms, he navigates his 5am to 7am set with obvious delight and Neptunian dissolve of the structures that separate things. Of particular note for me is the space he enters a little over an hour into the mix with an utterly oceanic track “Intruder” by Delta Funktionen leading into Rennie Foster’s ecstatic “Low Boxing.”
Rumor has it Aaron’s a terrific kisser, too… Yeah, you can totally hear that. Listen.

This month’s HONCHO hosts Bottom Forty’s own Nark. Just sayin’.
