Welcome to the first in a series of music mixes I've created over the last few days.
The seed for this initially started when I had the urge to create a new mix of music for a friend I used to share music with, back in more (or less) innocent days of beautiful cassette tapes. It was an interesting experience then, when I realised that suddenly, faced with a lack of time constraints and analogue FF and RW buttons for searching, that creating a simple mix was not going to be that straightforward. I ended up with over 100 tracks in a very short space of time and realising this was pretty unworkable for a one off mix, I decided to create a little series of mix tapes from all the tracks. So here is the first installment in a series of seven and as a tribute to those old mix tapes I used to make, each one has its own slightly hysterical name.
Every mix is a variety of styles and unpredictable content, even if everything included doesn't appeal to your ears, if you like music then even in this day and age, you'll find something that makes your ears alert against your will(hopefully)!
So then, on with some crazy music, some beautiful, some forgotten, some classics, some dark, some weird, some noisy and some which just have to have your attention.
Enjoy and watch out for the next installment. If you have any thoughts about the music here, please leave your comments.
