100 BPM beats for a tired Thursday night. This mix includes one F-bomb at the 30 minute mark, during Viktor Vaughn (MF Doom)’s rap. I guess that makes this one PG-13. Consider your surroundings when listening. (In other words: may or may not be appropriate for work. Depends on where you work.)
Two tracks by Mikron feature in this mix: #1 Embers and #12 Aldergrove. Both are from the excellent album Severance on CPU Records. Severance is a nicely varied album, slower in tempo than is typical for electro, more relaxed. It works well as an album, too: I’m happy listening to it straight through, beginning to end. Thumbs up for Severance, give it a listen at the link above.
Another standout here is Muto Love by Takeshi Muto from the Lily Of The Valley comp on Schematic. The rest of that comp is good too, and is definitely worth picking up. I’m sure I’ll be playing parts of it over the coming months.
Not too much more to say about this one; all these tracks are good. If something strikes your fancy here consider supporting the artist(s) at the links above. I’ll be back next week with something fast.
