Remember the good old mixtapes? I still have some at my parents’ house, stacked away in a shoe box, some with nothing but a note scribbled inside, others painstakingly accurate with tracklist and handmade cover. And speaking of mixtapes – I was featured on one.
To introduce this mix, Analogue Monologues writes, “not knowing what you’re looking for but happy with what you found, at least for a moment”; which is exactly how I feel, often, when I stumble across an unknown talented group of people. I’m surprised to be on the other side of the mirror this time, being discovered rather than discovering; it’s bizarre but pleasing. Anyway, you really should give the mixtape a listen – it’s atmospheric, gut-clenching and perfect for autumn, I think.
