It's been ages since the last one, but here we are. A lo-to-mid-fi tape-hiss-shrouded coldwave/minimal synth/new wave/flexipop-inspired mix.

Tracks were culled from various comps: Sex and Bestiality International Report, Minimal Ethics, Femmes Sous Cellophane, Colonial Vipers, Cold Waves & Minimal Electronics and handfuls taken from the highly-recommended Tribute to/None Night of Flexi-pop series.

At the time, I was without a mixer nor DJ software, so everything was dragged, dropped and sequenced track-by-track in Audacity, a time-intensive but oddly relaxing process that felt nostalgic: spending more time with the songs themselves and the process, writing the tracklist down, doodling while listening and so on- it was as close to making a proper physical mixtape on cassette as I had been in a long time. Way more engaging than wham-banging an iTunes playlist in 5 minutes.
