As the days get a little shorter and the nights a little cooler my daily soundtrack is starting to shift gears. Moving slightly away from synth-drenched beach jams and into the realm of fall sounds.. chill, sample laced, beats with soul. Music for a crisp evening. Starting off we have some brand new material from PEPEPIANO, then quickly move into a small stretch of fuzzed out wobbly tracks from Dawn Golden and Rosy Cross, Teenage Reverb and Old Arc. From there we get a few VHS beats from Stephen Farris, formerly Cosmic Sound, before laying back with sample heavy cuts from The Stuyvesants and Nicolas Jaar. Rounding out the set is a Star Slinger remix, who sonically can do no wrong.
If you dig this mixtape check out my Free Music Collection. Nearly all of tracks are pulled from free legal downloads which I’ve been compiling monthly. There you can find links to the rest of the material from artists on this mix. 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.
Something new this time.. This mix includes markers embedded in the file so you can tell which track is playing when. If you uses iTunes, keep your cover art window open to see the artist and track name as it’s playing. I download piles of mixes and always find it frustrating when you can’t follow along visually, this should alleviate it. If for some reason you don’t want the full version with track makers I’ve included a straight up mp3. The choice is yours.
