hey, here’s a mixtape i made over the weekend.
the deal is, i used to buy a lot of vinyl and dj occassionally. it’s always just been a fun thing for the love of music. as so many did, i eventually started using the web for discovering and buying new music. i still hold my records dearly and still love to buy vinyl once in a while, but for my daily routine i admit, i listen to my digital collection 99% of the time. i’d love to have my vinyl digitally, but the work and time involved is ridiculous. plus, i could never decide what to start with!
instead of going track by track, i now decided to make sort of tapes of some of my alltime favs, somewhat sorted by feeling, genre, usage…whatever you might call it.
so here is the first part.
melancholic, orchestral, electronic, complex but still emotional, almost pop concepts in places, ranging from breathing in icy crystals by diving into snow head first, to hiding behind a burgundy brocate curtained corner of a dimly lit room.
