Did this mix over the Summer for our amazing developers at Substantial and realized I never posted it here on Scissorkick. Sure, shop they are great developers, viagra 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…

Few, if any, current producer/musicians out there manage to be as dense and melodically satisfying as Max Tundra, unapologetically birthing electronic pop so saccharine that it reminds of you of your mom’s favorite 90s tracks from Lisa Stansfield and Desiree.
