Alright, got my first mix up on 8tracks! Originally I was going to make one mix for the entire blog’s existence, but by the time I got through to the end of the 2008 tracks, I was up to 2 hours in mix length… so here it is only for 2008.
A new post! I got an 8track, it should be fun making my own playlists and way easier than making mixes like I dabbled in a while back. If there still isn’t a mix in that profile by next week, slap me into shape. All three tracks, slightly more toned down but the way I like it. First is the Avenue remix of Tears for Fears. I don’t think I’ve ever heard of Avenue, but he’s making some killer remixes. Second is the cln remix of Crooked Colours. And ending the post off with the Oliver Nelson & Tobtok remix of Lematire High Tide. Absolutely awesome sound to this track. Avenue also did a remix of the same track, it’s slower in a great way.

Yeah, kind of love this song. It satisfies my electropop urges, I’ll have to watch for more Monogem in the future.
I felt it appropriate to also post Part 1, for the sake of including everything. Not completely sure why the video I posted yesterday is completely different from this Part 2 version, but I guess now you have three mixes?
So I’m back to test the water. That hiatus post should have been put up a year ago, but it really let me rethink things. The blog does not have to be a dedication, but my love for this music is growing. Don’t expect daily posts like before, but I will be here. Unfortunately, less downloadable content, but more discussion about music and newly released albums.
So I’m off to Portland this week, hopefully it won’t be raining the entire time. Music unrelated to that comment, finally weening myself off Hype Machine a bit, starting off with the Fred Falke remix of Nero Reaching Out. It’s an older one, but well it’s a great track. Slightly different sounding remix by Plastic Plates of Nile Delta Aztec. Actually reminds me of the good old days of when I started this blog, light techno I guess with an awesome beat. Lastly, the Aeroplane remix of Surahn Wonderful. Funky.

Alright, starting off with an older track. A friend introduced me to Lorde last weekend so I had to check it out, he was right, kind of like Lana Del Rey. She probably resents that comparison. Anyways, so far my favorite remix of her track Swingin’ Party is by Terace. Second up is the Oxford remix of Portland‘s Deezy Daisy. Great retro feel there, which totally follows over to my next chosen track, Hey Champ‘s On Holiday. I think I have a really specific taste in music… like angelic female vocalist with a good bass beat and retro sound…
