My friend asked me to throw together some new music for an event she was having and this is the result. A mix of modern easy listening that sits within its own little nook nestled somewhere between Indie, Electronic and Dance. Not quite Chillwave, but definitely something you can thrown on for a dinner party. Mostly new music from 2015 and the end of last…
Do you like boom bap beats? Remixed 80s tracks? Pitch-shifted vocals? Well, you’re in luck. On the heels of Steve’s recent mix, I’ve got another installment of the ScissorMix series ready. I guess there’s something about the summertime that makes me get off my ass and finish a mix.
This ScissorMix hits on a ton of different electronic notes, but stays in that sweet 115 to 125 BPM range, keeping things moving along with a nice pace. As usually, melody is the star here, and there’s no lack of bigness with the likes of amazing tracks from DJ Koze, Osborne, Disclosure, Classixx, Bonobo, Baths and the like. A ton of usual SK people on this mix and a few things that may have eluded your radar thus far.
Lucky for you, the first Scissorkast in too long is an all-music/no-talking affair. (I need an XLR adapter for my microphone). 100% new music, much of it unreleased, hitting the usual mix of instrumental electronic, emotive headphone post-rock, experimental dancefloor stuff and the like. Joyously looping, meticulously crafted sounds. Stuff from the US, UK, and Japan this time with a heavy emphasis on melody.
But better late than never, right? This mix is pretty much all hip hop, reggae, soul edits, afrofunk and other goodness that sounds great coming out of a boombox. Lots of familiar tracks in new packaging. It’s the soundtrack to the BBQ I haven’t had a chance to attend. So get out there, cook some meats, drink some beers, and pump these tunes for me.
Here’s a new installment of the Scissormix series out just in time for the holidays. This mix lives solidly in the realm of downtempo. So it’s perfect to throw on after a long day of shopping/family/work and whatever other stresses come your way this holiday season.
Did this mix over the Summer for our amazing developers at Substantial and realized I never posted it here on Scissorkick. Sure, they are great developers, but what’s more impressive is the collective musical knowledge in their office. I wanted to dig deep with a mix of old and new. The heat was on. The mix was done during the insane build-up to Internet Week…
