New Wave Reception

6 months ago, I began a blog of my own so that I could make podcasts, practice mixing. That blog, at this point, has become its own thing I suppose. While I’ve posted some several mixtapes, nothing after the original ‘cast. I thought I’d give this one a wider release. It’s one I’ve been thinking about for a while now.

Basis: It seems that last year’s chillwave movement — while it may have outlived GoogleWave — has officially become boring: utterly beached. Sun’s gone. Night’s come.  Teen – age – Ice – age. And with this Night, comes glimmering synths, handclaps & drummachines, croons. Consider Twin Shadow, who with his ’10/10′ Forget pulled it off all so well. With 2011, let’s usher in the overly sentimental, the too articulate. In 2011, let’s smile till it hurts.

Project: Here are some new wave tracks from all around the world. I’ve used several from a selection of killer vietnamese/german new wave tapes I’ve come across since September as well as some perhaps more familiar selections. I’ve done some reversing, some sampling of my own, and had a wonderful time mixing it all together. It’s a blast. I hope you like it. Fill up your pencaps and Have a Happy New Year.
