The summer of 2010 was unusually hot in Latvia. I remember it as a slow, lazy brain-and-body-melting sauna where you barely wanted to move and do anything apart from waiting for a night to come, when you again didn’t want to move much but sit outside and enjoy the sight of a night sky and the sounds of waves, birds and moskitoes. Probably, it affected my listening habits at that period: most of the summer, I avoided hi-energy music, giving preference to gentle coos of alt.folk singer-songwriters or chilling electroacoustic soundscapes with their icy or insect-like sounds.
However, when I did turn to beats, it was mostly introvert experimental tech-house a-la Bruno Pronsato or endless dub-techno variations. When the summer was over, I got bored with 4x4 completely, and that’s when I was invited to do a mix for Origami Podcasts series. What you get is my Recollection of Summer Daze.
