MIXTAPE 80 – FROM LA WITH LOVE
My bad on the delay. First things first –
The Mixtape Show is in the final round for the award for Best (Podsafe) Music Podcast on the internet. Thanks for getting us this far – let’s take it this year! The voting opens on the 28th and goes to the 10th of August, and you can vote every single day. I fully expect all of you to do that. I’ll be posting details on how to vote once the polls open.
It’s also probably a good idea to keep an eye on this space in the next couple of weeks – there’s gonna be a hell of a lot of music coming your way – the podcasts will be coming in more often, and there’s going to be a bunch of giveaways. So if you like free shiny discs with pretty songs on them, you should pay attention.
So – this episode. This is a compilation that came out a little while ago that spent a good amount of time in the ride, but for whatever reason has really been slept on. ArtDontSleep’s new From LA With Love has a mission statement that is a kinda tall order, but I am definitely feeling the music. I only have the promo version, but I hear the official release comes with a mini art booklet. Definitely a release worth checking out. This episode is a cool little mix put together by Kuthma that runs you through some of the highlights. Check the soultronica vibe on a lot of these cuts…
