Each week through the New Year, Abstract without Abstraction will be releasing an unreleased sequence in California-based artist Candescent's "extenuating circumstances" mix series.

Recorded in the Winter of 2011/2012, each part of the 4-part series places two drastically slowed down techno tracks next to each other in an unfussy vignette, allowing one to appreciate them -- like flurries settling in a snow globe -- at a different speed.

For fans of DJ Screw, Lone Wolf, Happy Slowcore, Cherry Moon on Valium, sub-100bpm techno.

In the spirit of the title of these "screwed, not chopped" mixes, the recordings will be offered as pay-what-you-will downloads, with all proceeds going directly to Denver Homeless Out Loud- a horizontal, consensus-based group working to protect the rights of those experiencing homelessness in the greater Denver metro area.
