A DJ set that expresses a sentiment: the feeling of Subspace.
The theme of this DJ set I created while writing the first draft of my novel, The Beautiful World of the Alive, is Space—not literal space but the ecstatic space experienced by lovers who consent to exchange their power within a dominant and submissive dynamic.
In this dynamic, true dominance is shown to be not the projection of power but the restraint shown to the submissive, who, in their vulnerable state, projects what it means to wield true power.
The dance of give and take of their trust—of the pushing and pulling of emotions—the constant testing of the dominant’s worthiness, and when that’s demonstrated, the lovers become free to experience sensations similar to the sensations felt listening to this DJ set, of floating in space, until the moment where the dominant could express their joy through the aftercare of their submissive as they return to the ordinary world.
This DJ set can be found over on my SoundCloud.
Take a listen.
For those who would prefer an unmixed version, here’s a Spotify playlist I created comprised of tracks used in the DJ set.
