Eclectic, according to Webster´s Dictionary is “selecting what appears to be best in various doctrines, methods, or styles” or “composed of elements drawn from various sources”. Now I can´t really say this Fact Magazine mix from Emperor Machine is eclectic, but it´s certainly different. It´s all the same genre of music, so it´s not from different sources, but it´s a genre most of us are not too familiar with.
Webster´s definition is not fitting, so what about Andy Meecham (the architect behind the mix)? His definition is: “It’s just a load of tracks that I’m listening to right now – a compilation I made to play in the car.” I can go for that.
