Will McGiven is a Derby, UK based DJ known for his eclectic Constellations Radio Shows on every Friday. Will has DJ’d all over the UK as well as an appearance supporting the great Marcus Miller for the North Sea Jazz Festival at The Bird Club, Rotterdam.

Will has been a massive fan of the Discus label for many years now, proclaiming it to be “The most deep and diverse label anywhere on the planet”. His love of the label has inspired him to create this new mix – his second, following “Kindling” in 2020 – exclusively for the Discus label and its followers. The mix was recorded in one live take, straight off the cuff and no edits. He only uses his DJ software’s reverb, pitch slider and echo effects to create the unique sound scape presented here.

Special thanks go to Derby artist Walt Shaw for his wonderful accompanying art work entitled Sentient Creatures. Please check out all his superb work here:

Will’s mix also inspired Discus label musician and poet, Laura Cole, to write the wonderful poem to accompany the mix. A massive thanks goes out to Laura for this brilliant piece. All of Laura’s recent releases can be found on Discus Music.
