This mix for FACT by the Haxan Cloak (aka Bobby Krlic) is a fantastic soundtrack for a gray Monday morning. It also profoundly captures the somberness and turbulent emotional upheaval of observing the anniversary of the death of a loved one, as I am doing today. But no matter your mind state or the weather, the pervasive darkness and forbidding aura of FACT 273 offer a tough-love catharsis—and some excellent, wrenching music.

You can listen to the mix here and read an interview with Krlic here.
