ScissorMix 14: Warm Waves

Jul 15th, 2015 Ambient, Chillwave, Indie, Indie Dance, ScissorMix steve 1 min read

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…

ScissorMix Vol. 12: Robot Barbecue

Jun 24th, 2013 IDM, Indie Dance, ScissorMix steve 1 min read

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.

Scissorkast 11: Sugarwater

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.

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…

Even though the weather in NYC is shitty, it’s always a great day when I can post something new created by a close friend. Sam Willis, one half of Kompakt recording artists Walls and the fantastic DJ/blog duo Allez-Allez is a busy man these days up in Hackney, but somehow found the time to launch another pseudonym side-project as Snoretex. It’s mind blowing when I…
