Everywhere I went this winter, I was followed by warmth. A December stint in NYC led to t-shirts in a 60-degree night. In Louisville, I had my whiskeys in a windbreaker. LA was only kiiinda cold - and only by LA standards. This mix provides a bit of sonic warmth to match the weather and provide some heat everywhere else it's needed - not blinding heat, just gentle embers.
This mix is also my 2015 musical reflection. As I look back at soundcloud mixes over the past couple years, I'm realizing that most of them were either recordings from big energetic parties or compilations that featured my favorite dance floor tracks.
My last studio mix that I put together for the burn ("Us") was intended for headphone or car listening and thus it was more tender and restrained than the thumpier, techier tracks I generally play out.
This latest winter mix follows that trend. It features a handful of airy and sparse tracks that I love (but might put a dance floor to sleep); bouncy, funky tracks to keep the pulse going; and finally a couple of detours into dark and punchy territory.
Hope you enjoy my last mix of the year. Stay warm, friends.
