November 2020 Mixtape
This month we’ve got new music from Session Victim, Tiga, Hudson Mohawke, Disclosure, Verdance, Khi Infinite, Solomun, Monkey Safari, Old Smile and O’Flynn.
I’m designating this mix as the lockdown dance-your-face-off-at-home mix. It starts off smooth with some psychedelic indie and jazz in the beginning before becoming progressively faster as the mix goes on. Perfect for some self-isolation dance party fun.
I got all scientific about this mix and lined up the songs according to beats per minute. So the first track is at like 90 bpm and each song is a tiny bit faster until we end at 130 bpm.
So for example, at around 15 minutes into the mix we feature the title single off of Chip Wickham’s new cosmic jazz album, Blue to Red. The track combines this sauntering percussion with a sweeping harp — yes, a friggin harp. It is reminiscent of other jazz greats like Alice Coltrane, Pharaoh Sanders, Dorothy ashby.
Then fast forward to the 1 hour mark and we’ve got the new Solomun track that bumps the beat up to 125. It’s a totally different world.
My hope is that if you listen to the mix from start to finish, the transition will be so seamless that you won’t even notice. That was the plan anyway.
Hope you hear something you can get excited about in this month’s mix. Until next time, enjoy the November Mixtape!
