this mixtape making has become an addictive habit of mine recently.
and so i present to you, for your enjoyment and consumption, a quick-fix mix called drug.
if you were a fan of Loony Bin, a previous mixtape, i believe you will be rather fond of this compilation. a bit wild in the beginning, but settles down nicely towards the end.
it will work quite appropriately when arriving home after spending a handsome amount of your evening politely quenching a thirst at your local, and, upon returning to your castle with your mate/posse/squeeze you skin a bifter to take things from a raging 9 to a mellow 6 and finally down to a sleepy 3 – ah yes, we’ve all done it before, and this is a fine soundtrack. there is a bit of crazy here and there, but as is to be expected at this time of the night…
the 35 minutes is also quite a globe-trotting trip that takes your through music from San Francisco and Atlanta, quickly pops into sunny St Lucia, Australia but without missing a beat dips into a dark Houston throb. It’s around here, a midway point, where things throwback to late 70’s Bristol only to come right back to current-time Puerto Rico, followed by Greece, before stopping back State-side in New Jersey and Brooklyn and wrapping things up with a look through the eyes of a 17-year old Londoner.
I will put the playlist up at later stage; enjoy some mystery for a bit.
“oh wow. oh wow. oh wow…”
