Gorra Cold

Woke up feeling utterly vile, easily remedied by an extra hour in bed after some sneaky tabs to dull it a bit. And then I remembered I was due to do another post today which is no problem because while I am more prepared than I was for the last one I did. Hold onto yer butts.

A little something from my man Celadon City to kick off, as a pressie for hitting 2k followers he ever so nicely gave out this one as a free download. It's as expected of him by now, featuring more dreamy vibes as per usual, and once again I adore that intro. This is the first I've heard of his output that doesn't strike me as summery, whether that's to do with it being autumn now or if it's just the vocal focus in this remix I can't say, but I'm still liking it a bunch.

Another shoutout to Evan again here, this time with another slightly reworked track of his. I've heard plenty of the original, dubbed Tsukuyomi 2, and even more of it when he gave me a redone version of half speed for the A/V EP we collaborated on. You think I'd be sick of it by now but if there's one thing I like it's callbacks to earlier works. Hell, that's practically most of what Alive 2007 was. Anyway, enjoy this latest beat flavored version from the man.

I'd be lying if I said I've kept up with AFX since Syro dropped, I tend to steer clear of the man's soundcloud simply because I don't want to get too attached to a demo that will never get released. This time I decided to peek in and have potentially a new favourite track of the month. That opening synth was gorgeous enough as is but then the vocoder came in and I was completely in love. Almost seems like AFX has taken some cues from former Rephlex labelmate DMX Krew and I couldn't be more happy with the result.
