As promised, here’s last month’s mix. I was getting a bit lazy about doing the artwork, but in the end I think it turned out well… Shame about the name, though. Anyway, enjoy some nu-disco/deep house/acid house for the next hour.
[ Play All ]
It’s kinda interesting to note that, our first track, Rytmeklubben – Seen (R3ll R3mix), comes courtesy of Annie Mac. I dunno if she’s played this kind of genre on her show before, but it seems to be surfacing more, anyway. So, kicking off with some Jersey beats, meets neon/future beats (or whatever we wanna call it), flying right through to Japan, for a bit of that kawaii sound.
This is the perfect compliment to my mood, right now. It’s all about the bass and strings on the main refrain, would love to know the original sample.
I hardly ever post other people’s mix tapes, but this one’s just incredible! A tour de force of disco delights, reaching right in to the soul of sci-fi/space disco and throwing it into the 21st century.
The vast pool of music at our fingertips can be overwhelming. Just the other day, my friend remarked that with all the great music coming in through his soundcloud feed, he could make a new mix everyday; he’s not wrong. You’d think sieving through all the bad stuff would be a chore, but to be honest, with an open mind, there’s really very little to sieve through. I think I’ve said it before, but, what a time to be alive. Much like the rapid advances we’ve seen in technology, over the last couple of decades, music is evolving/developing at an increasingly fast rate too, and for a music lover, this is just the best thing to happen. Ever. Couldn’t be happier.
So this brings us to tonight’s playlist, a collection of songs that are so evidently the byproduct of the rapid changes in music, that they’ve been given the umbrella term “future beats”. Enjoy a trip through trance/rave-like melodies, hip-hop/trap inspired beats and Japanese kawaii sounds with possible happy hardcore roots (I think “Loud Tokio!” by Neko & Miko, may well be my guilty pleasure of the month).
