Ry X recently crafted a special playlist for Madre Radio, and answered a few questions about his love and life with music.
IF YOU WERE TO SHARE A GLASS OF MEZCAL WITH ANYONE PRESENT OR PAST, WHO WOULD IT BE?
I just had a thought of sitting down with some deep spiritual teachers over a mezcal… Dalai Lama, Ram Dass… feels against the grain in just the right way… I’m pretty sure they would be down… Or maybe a sip with Bjork. I’d like to explore her mind.

WHO ARE YOU WHERE ARE YOU FROM AND WHAT DO YOU DO?
Im RY X, and I was born on a small island with a few hundred people close to the coast of Byron Bay in Australia. I grew up on a permaculture farm there with my sister and parents. I'm a Musician / Composer among other journeys.
HOW DOES MUSIC INTEGRATE INTO YOUR LIFE BEYOND IT JUST BEING YOUR JOB?
It flows into everything I do.. As the counterpart and catalyst of so many experiences in my life. It’s rare that music isn’t playing in my world… and if so, then it’s generally a chosen silence, or time connecting to other sounds of the sea / nature.
WHAT’S THE VIBE OF THE PLAYLIST YOU MADE FOR MADRE?
Theres so many directions I could go when making a mix…. into deep ambient worlds, which I swim in the most, or african, or indian, and indonesian tracks… all the things I generally listen to outside more electronic leanings.
For this playlist I chose a collection of songs that felt both engaging and deep as listens in the latter world. A downtempo set for movement at home or with friends, or just time in reflection. It feels like it can suit both.
