About this: Expect for a more mature listen. Less edits, more originals. This mixtape was inspired and curated by the music heard in the Palm Springs desert not so long ago from some of my finest friends that are producers and fine taste makers in music. It will be a trip of chill, but fast…instrumentals, balearic vocals back down to a triumphant end. Listen all the way through. Take a pause, and then listen again if you must. Listen in the exact play order. Finally, enjoy.
With time, personal thoughts, and for the love of musical decadence,
Count down, and after one, there is indefinitely a zero.
Coming ‘round, the circle finds us back at the beginning and the air that fills when you return is faintly familiar. And struggling with the dissonant notions of why you left to begin with and what brings you back, you let loose a tired sigh relieved in the solace that it’s somehow fated and the di rolls as it can and should.
So, we pass Go. Collect our recompense. And start again.
A beginning starts with an end with this new, yet old, mixtape, #0. Definitively the last in a chain of intimate mixtapes, it’s shared here on our neurotic pages so you may revel in our sentimental soundscape while new tender morsels await in the days ahead.
Birthed in the City of Sin for want of a familiar bedfellow and the flickering disco’ed dark, #0 is a coalescence of avant remixes, dubs, minimalism, and nu disco; an aural escape where need finds solace in noise.
