all the other mixes i've posted on this blog have revolved around the ambient side of things - hazy, distant tunes drowned in noise and sad human voices - but recently i've been going mad for skewed samples, heavy drums and low bass. this mix represents a collection of the warped pop and laid-back electronica i've always had a taste for, but throws it in the ring with heavy dubstep and minimal techno.
i was originally going for a tribute to the summer, all bliss'd out beats and sunny melodies. but when the hissy IDM and cut-up hip-hop started to come in, i was afraid i'd lose that vibe altogether - so i've included my recent feel-good hits of the summer (El Guincho, Animal Collective), and after seeing how well they sync up with Martyn and Dusk + Blackdown, i think my fears were unfounded. i guess including the rain-and-clouds from musicians like Actress and Lukid makes it more representitve of a Scottish summer anyway. not every day is a sunny one.
