I’m not even sure where to start with this one.
Life has been quite a ride for me this past year. And since Summer, I’ve gone through a separation, moved back to the U.S., and have begun the process of starting my life over. And while good things will come of it, there is quite a bit to wade through, that isn’t so pleasant.
That’s what this mix is about. It’s mourning, it’s angry, it hurts. It’s dark, hard, and sexual. There is a dash of hope here and there, but it quickly escapes.
It’s impossible to outrun the bad things in life, as much as one might like to. So in the true nature of my tunes being a reflection of the here and now for me… here’s me, wading through (and not around) the rough stuff.
Artistically, I’m quite happy with how it turned out. It starts a bit here and there, and really starts cranking. It grows darker and harder towards the end, at doesn’t let up at the finish. It’s still very much pop remixes going on here… but I tried to push it to be darker and harder than my usual. I’m not sure how well it’ll do on a treadmill or at a house party – it’s a bit much – but it is what it is. Hope ya like it.
I’ve had quite a number of people contacting me asking when this mix was coming out. It’s awesome to know people are excited and wanna keep hearing more. I promise my next mix have a little more light shining through :)
Thanks everyone… and see you in the New Year!
PS. Thanks to my photographer for making me as dark, dirty, and sleazy as the tunes.
