As promised, something special! We already ask the artists involved for an exclusive mix, and a small piece of their soul, in mixtape form, but when we put the call out to White Light alumnus requesting tracks and edits for our big #100 extravaganza, we were touched to receive overwhelming support, and some incredible contributions. The goal of this collection was to showcase some of the many talented artists who have taken part in the series thus far, and we’re thrilled with the results! Some truly magical tracks here, many of them exclusive to this collection. We’ve also linked you to their mixes for a bit of a refresher. You’ll notice a few name changes; DVAS is now known as Jex Opolis. Ajello have disbanded and DJ Rocca remains. And while we got a mix from Runaway, our edit below is from Jacques Renault. It should also be pointed out we have 3 incredible original tracks in the package from Jokers of the Scene, Earl Grey and Avenue – all of which were included on the White Light 100 Mix. So please, download this collection. Play them often and play them loud. And don’t forget to look into the light!
The timing of the mix couldn’t have been better, as we were about to take a road trip through the Catskill Mountains of New York. Our idea was pretty simple…string together a set of records that we wanted to listen to during our drive. Starting off slow and dreamy and gently gravitating toward repetition.
We chose not to include a track listing, to mimic the old mix-tape style. Years ago, if you wanted to listen to a particular song from someone’s mix-tape, you had to put in that tape and find it. Today’s disposable music through Youtube or likewise gets instantly and tragically forgotten.
