The New LoFi

Ten Years

September 2020 Mixtape

For the September Mixtape we have new music from Disclosure, Röyksopp, Kamaal Williams, Trentemøller, Foals, LUXXURY, Boys Noize, HAAi and many many more!

I’ll admit that this month’s mix has a bit less sunshine in it. It’s more soulful and introverted. This mix explores the more brooding and autumnal side of music that has been delivered to us this year. I suppose it fits well with the mood that September brings: the days are getting shorter, the nights are getting colder.

So while last month’s mixtape was filled with bubbly house and sunshiny indie music, this month features more instrumental jazz, melancholic beats and dark techno. This mix is for solo listening. There is so much atmospheric nuance in this mix that I’d say it’s better suited for headphone listening by oneself rather than being used as a soundtrack for a house party.

Or perhaps this mix would be the perfect companion on a run. After the one hour mark the music starts to up the pace and the beats start to become more and more minimal and aggressive. By the 01:15:00 mark, you have entered a world of driving techno.

Basically, this mix isn’t for everyone, but for those more pioneering listeners out there, I think there is some really interesting and unique sounds for you to discover.

But before we get deep, the mix starts off with something more upbeat: The new single off of LUXXURY’s latest album: “Set Me Free.”

Thanks for listening!
