WARNING! NO DANCE MUSIC HERE!
Here is a mix tape I did for my friend Jeremiah aka Neoteric's mix series - White Light... http://www.whitelightmixes.com/
The brief was as follows:
"The White Light mixes are, ultimately, about two things: music and space. Music first and foremost, as this series is a showcase of great songs, not tracks – songs and mixes you want to listen over and over again, songs that have depth and staying power, and most importantly songs that mean something to each other.
Secondly, White Light is about space – giving the music room to breathe – not a post-a.d.d. mix of everything trendy that can fit onto a mixtape, but one that’s paced to give each tune its shine, where the music is the focus and the mixing is an effortless complement. Over time I’m sure the criteria will change here and there, but White Light will always be about night driving, introspection and taking the time to listen from start to finish – remember to always look into the light . . ."
I really enjoyed doing this, its not often you are able to indulge yourself like this......
I imagined myself driving down a solitary road or alone at home with nothing but my thoughts and these songs. Hopefully you'll be able to try it out for yourself.
These songs have influenced me greatly for very different reasons, some are more recognizable than others. Some I have on vinyl, some cd, some digital. I enjoyed going through my old library and piecing them together. I wish there was a way of putting the mix on shuffle as I found it difficult to decide on an order.
I've checked out other mixes in this series after I did mine and it seems mine is quite unusual, I hope you enjoy it.
