The Sahara Mixtape album presents a selection of 33 pieces I've made for the score of the VPRO-produced travel/documentary series Sahara, in which Bram Vermeulen explores political turmoil, social issues and cultural heritage in the Sahara region. The soundtrack is at times brooding and gritty, but also prominently playful and exhilarating. You might actually hear some influences by M.I.A. and Equiknoxx Music in there… high-energy stuff that you'd normally not associate with my music. Making this album felt like an invitation to experiment in ways that were (relatively) new to the composer; the joy of making it radiates through these tracks.
