What a fucking year. Highs and lows with a soundtrack tailored perfectly to the vicissitudes on offer.
This is how it all went down in Chinatown. 2014 a year of opposites dancing around in implicit flux.
Two thousand and thirteen had its own musical flavour, I seemed to gravitate towards electronic grooves and music that, in my mind, would be the perfect soundtrack for floating around in Virtual Reality to. My enthusiasm for the Oculus Rift VR headset was constantly in the back of my mind, perhaps because I’ve been keen as a gamer to see a true paradigm shift away from monitors and screens into a realm of infinite creative possibilities, something totally immersive. The music from that I discovered in this year stoked my imagination. Enjoy this mix.
The actual playlist on my computer was 20+ tracks covering my favourite tunes from 2012, when it came to creating this compilation I had to strip it down to twenty of my favourites for the year where Terence McKenna’s ‘Timewave’ was supposed to reach it’s Omega Point. Needless to say, it didn’t, you get another musical compilation and I in turn can look at the empty playlist for 2013 and wonder what audio delights the next year will bring. Enjoy my 2012.
2011 was a crazy year. Planet Earth got pissy with the homo sapiens and decided to unleash a can of whoop-ass on them. In turn, the humans got arsey with each other in several locations. It was mayhem. Anyway, this was the soundtrack from one person’s particular viewpoint.
Featuring artists including Underworld, Hybrid, Iamamiwhoami, and a few chilled out dudes trying to calm everyone the fuck down.
