The first part of this mix compares contemporary IDM to 60's soul and psychedelia. The pace is downtempo and the styles range from straightforward smooth pop to abstract, textured electronic. I included some found samples and a recording of my son singing about zombies to frame this music in a way that compares it to a b-movie idea of the undead. A dark undertone, but overall lighthearted and upbeat. Side B is upbeat and groovy, largely influenced by Caribou's latest album as well a a DJ Bylamplight compilation of obscure garage/R&B hits. I have also been listening to Can after years of reading their name dropped in music reviews. So in the first 30 minutes of Side B, the mix transitions seamlessly through music from 5 different decades. The mix returns to themes in Side A with jj's Lil' Wayne cover, some Deru beats,and finally an introspective monologue from Dexter. Cover art by Ryan Fenchel and Cole Pierce.
