Mixo de Mayo
After such a joyous MixXmas last year, it was decided to spread the cheer all the way into this Spring. Thus, the first Mixo de Mayo mix exchange was initiated. I made my mix for my honorable east coast artist colleague Mike Treffehn this time around, and, like MixXmas, have decided to change up my routine a little bit. By and large, this is not dance music, though some kinda is. I wanted to take this opportunity to start my first ever mix series, and I'm titling it "Feel Music." These songs have had a big impact on the way my studio work has developed conceptually this past semester, and so I thought making a concise mix of them would both pay them tribute, and include them in a new self-contained piece altogether. I hope people like it, because I'll probably make "Vol. 2" someday. Also, I know there are two little blips in The Field's remix right before it leads into the Basinksi track, but that's because my rickety computer had a hard time getting the 20 minute Disintegration Loop going. I left it in as a nod to The Field's own "Sun and Ice." As a bonus I'm also posting a zip file with all of the individual tracks from the mix. Ciao.

PS - Apparently Megaupload cuts off the title of the mix, so you might want to add a little "1" in there after you download it. Also, this blog is now the #1 Google search result for Gold Skulltulla! Yay!
