Summer’s in full blown hot as hell mode so I thought it was about time for a high humidity mix, something warm and sticky. This summer has been flooded with new tunes, tons of lo-fi drenched in synth, samples and beats so I’ve been in heaven. A few notables for me have been Star Slinger – whose been sampling/spitting out some really nice chillwave hip-hop, Com Truise – whose 80′s movie soundtracks have been massaging my brain with warm bubbles, Ohio’s Pepepiano – whose catchy psych pop tunes have been stuck in my head for the past week, and Cosmic Sound – whose old school synth loops are on repeat in my subconscious. Some of the usual suspects resurface from previous mixes too, like Moodgadget’s Shigeto, Brainfeeder’s Take, Ghostly’s Matthew Dear, and Javelin. They keep putting out fresh shit.. so I gotta show ‘em some love.
If you dig this mixtape check out my Free Music Collection. A lot of tracks are pulled from free legal downloads which I’ve been compiling monthly.
You can also listen to the most recent mixtape in the Soundcloud player (in the upper right) while you browse. As always feedback is much appreciated. And feel free to share, blog, tweet it or send me any fresh tracks of your own.
