rainy season


A lot of people complain that i make too many mixes and it's hard keeping up with them.Another complaint is that my mixes are too long.I think i will have to follow some advice regarding the first matter.As far as the second one is concerned i tried really hard making this as short as possible but i ended up with something more than an hour and a half.I think that when you use words to form a sentence if you omit some of the words the most probable scenario is that you are gonna be talking gibberish.Same here.I used all the songs i wanted to tell a little bittersweet story.About waking up in a freezing room with moisture forming little pools on the bathroom windows,your red eyes saying hi on the mirror,the lazy moves of your legs trying to fit in your pants,an intimate scent on your sheets,the taste of last night in your mouth,a missed call from mum,walking to New Cross station with your hands freezing in your pockets,lost in translation in high definition after a curry,a patch of broken tiles in my bathroom,falling,late night confessions from an old crash,the sound of rain,my empty fridge,nightbus rides to Streatham with ''I'',the Pale Fountains,antibiotics,New years day.This is rainy season.My new mix.Hope it goes straight to your heart.And i promise not to make a new one for the next few months.Cross my heart.

Looking forward to checking this out!

I think your mixes mostly have an ideal length. Sure, they are longer than what you usually find on the net but when the song selection is great and you're really taken by the music it's great when the mix doesn't already stop after an hour or so.

lovely opening. I admit I need another life just for checking more music but it's always worth making time for your mixes - even though I may be late getting round to them.

Beautiful words and music.

I feel this mix so much. It arrives on me at the right time and the right moment of my life. As Jack_Faith put it, it's always worth making time for your mixes no matter how late that is. From Julee Cruise to The Blue Nile via The Pale Fountains. Timeless mix is made of this.
