Mixtape
I only have 150 words to write what this week’s mixtape is all about. There are three or four words I could use that would perfectly explain the whole thing, but unfortunately they are part of a lost language etched into pillars that lie in the Indian Ocean, leaving me only with English to inadequately describe the theme behind this mix. It is intended to capture the feel of a long night of cigarettes and wine and taxis, the capitulation of the day to the fever dream of drinks, dances and moonlight. From the ecstatic opening of “You” to the delirious climax of “OCAD Flu,” the first half is all about the rise of midnight empires, while the second is intended to embody the slow descent of last night into tomorrow during the pre-dawn hours when the serotonin is exhausted, ending with the dreamy embrace of Heathered Pearls and M83.
