Hear Henry Saiz’s ‘balance presents’ mix compilation

Created over the span of two years, Balance 32 marks a creative high point in the career of Madrid-based artist Henry Saiz, and this marks his third appearance for the hallowed compilation series. Spread over an expansive three discs, it has given him the space to curate a truly stunning odyssey of creative expression-one influenced by everything from AI to his recent ADHD diagnosis.

As ever, he has gone above and beyond to ensure that the mix is crammed full of exclusive, unreleased material—nearly 75% of the music included—both from himself and many of his favourite producers and collaborators, from unknowns through to household names like Röyksopp.

“Since I’ve done two Balance compilations already, I didn’t want to repeat myself” he says. “My first, Balance 19, was very important for my career and I knew people would be comparing it with this new one, so I put a lot of effort into it to make it more attractive and to be able to gain more control in the final product sound-wise.” – Henry Saiz

Created in Ableton, which he uses for his DJ sets due to its unlimited creative functionality and precision (“I get bored easily with CDJs”), the mix makes great use of many effects, layerings, and production techniques to enhance the beautiful sounds that lie within.

Part 1 takes a freestyle approach to find a sweet spot between home listening and club warm-up vibes, all woven together through a narrative about the connection between the past, the future, the reinterpretation of old concepts, and AI.

Part 2 leans towards the sounds of Henry Saiz in club mode, beginning with the warm blanket of sumptuous Milio’s Dew, building gradually and flitting between the deep and the soaring. From lush progressive house to the heavenly breaks of Brassica’s epic Celestial Suspension through some truly staggering new psychedelically tinged material from Saiz, it’s a mix packed with magical melody. The disc crescendos with the shimmering riffs of Henry Saiz & Imalgi’s Kickboxer, where synths are made to weep digital tears, and the stunning liquid breaks and heartfelt vocals of Moonlight Wolves All I Need (Third Son Remix). As ever, all is not what it seems in his sets, with heavy editing making these truly unique versions.

The final chapter of this sprawling compilation explores the increasing tempos of the current era, expanding Saiz’s DNA into new territory while maintaining all the classy elements of his sound.

A deep and spacey feel early on with plenty of dubby touches gives way to meatier sounds, psychedelic tones woven into the heavier rhythms as the tempos gradually creep upwards and elements of trance abound through a flurry of Saiz exclusives. A grandstand finish is guaranteed by way of his incredible chugging-based rework of Moonlight Wolves’ Mantra, the light dreamy beauty of Henry Saiz & Somfay’s To Steal a Star from The Night and the intense synth overload of H. Haze’s La Fuerza. A perfect end to a truly remarkable body of work.
