Happy Friday everyone! As the Tour De France heads into the mountains & a spry young Alberto Contador hops along the mountainside like a billy goat (as well as a very young & very skinny French dude), so does our spirits rise up… why, you ask? Well, because we gots ourselves a brand-spanking new mixtape to share!
This time around, I was inspired by “Your Truly, The Commuter”… the song clung onto me for more than one commute & ride, reminding me on some of my weaker days just to keep pedaling, keep pedaling, your coming home. I started there and moved into a few newer and maybe even a few older songs from this year, including a little REM remasterd favourite, “7 Chinese Bros” that just seemed to fit the general vibe.That’s usually how it happens… Get stuck on a song, then start tacking other songs around it until suddenly, I have the workings of mixtape! It’s a got a slight mellow vibe, but not too mellow, maybe a popper or two here and there, all with a hint of darkness in each song. Yeah… pretty nice vibe indeed.
Kept this one old school though (or, as the kids write, “old skewl”), no fade & mix & special recordings, hell, you don’t even have to play it gapless if you don’t want to (but you should, why waste the 2 seconds?). No, I was pretty happy with the nice ebb & flow, but allowing each song stands all on it’s on that I figured we were good to go!
