Merrick Presents Senseless Vol. X: Capriccio

Daniel Taibleson

We have been honored over the last year to work with Merrick on his stellar 10-part mix series that we've released exclusively on Only The Beat. It's been a pleasure to watch him grow as an artist and even more fun to listen to each of the mixes he's delicately crafted for us. I've been blow away at the thought that has gone into the mix series and want to recognize Merrick for taking the time and putting in the effort to do something different. From the original artwork to the overarching themes of each mix that ultimately tie back to his main goal of delivering a special House Music experience, I've thoroughly enjoyed showcasing Merrick's talents on Only The Beat and I hope you've enjoyed it as much as I have. Now, a few words about the final mix from the man himself: "Capriccio: a piece of music, free of form and lively in character... Welcome to the final piece of the Senseless Mix Series presented by Only The Beat. For the finale I really wanted to create an analog, vinyl-like mix that incorporated elements of the Chicago House movement, a little bit of jazzy sax & piano, with the new flare of today's funk & soul brought by labels like Exploited, Large Music, and Defected. This has been the sound that I have been endlessly downloading and tuning in on lately and I had to express it. The year has truly been outstanding, and my taste in music has twisted and evolved throughout. With each of the 10 mixes you can see the change in pattern. At the end I can truly say, that these 10 mixes embody my soul with music and tell a story that cannot be shared with words. I put everything I had into these mixes and I hope you enjoy listening, as much as I enjoyed mixing them :D Want to give a personal shout-out to Daniel from Onlythebeat, who gave me the opportunity to have a platform to put this music out on and gave them an audience to be heard." -Merrick
