Endless Winter Mix
Last year I tried to throw a party called "Malcontent" based on the emotions sad, depressed, stressed and/or angry, a backlash against all the happy fun time partying we're always doing these days. We organized "Malcontent" on a Tuesday night (worst day of the week ever) in late February at this bar called The Hut, and it sucked. It was cold and rainy and five people showed up. I now realize the fatal flaw in my thinking; a downer party has to be held alone, in your room, preferably in your pajamas, probably drinking or chain smoking cigarettes. So this year I've updated the concept with an Endless Winter mix that can be downloaded alone and listened to in the solitude of your own cold Saturday afternoon. If you're in Shanghai right now, you know what I'm talking about, right? Anyways, here's the mix, recorded in one shot on turntables on a miserably cold dark and rainy Thursday afternoon.
