The Mixcasts are back and better than ever! This is a big collection of everything I’ve been listening to, just so you know what you’re getting into. I actually put this together when I was in New York, so that was where my head was at. I’d say it’s pretty upbeat for the most part and there should be some fun stuff you may have not heard before. I tried to get kind of a summer-y feeling to it. I’d say it’s a pretty good way to start the weekend. Maybe put it on if you go to the beach?
From here on out I’ll be back to releasing this on Mondays, so be ready for more tunes soon. If you’d like to let me know which songs you liked or any ideas for themes I’m always up to hearing from you. Thanks for waiting patiently for this little friend to come out.
Finally I have to give a huge thanks to my friend Kim Høltermand who allowed me to use beautiful photos for the covers of the Mixcast. This might be a new trend I start where I’ll use artists/designers/photographers to contribute to the covers of mixes. Just another way to share the work of talented folks out there!
