i don’t know what happened there. is it tuesday already? and june? wow. well my excuse is that i had a busy weekend and stuff. you know, the combination of clubbing, planning a wedding, day-to-day domesticity and plain old work can be pretty time consuming. not that i’m complaining – life is good and the weather is warm. so this, which landed in the past 24 hours, is perfect. it’s another great addition to the white light series, from villa. it’s full of soul, and i’m talking about that painful, makes you cry kind of soul. the sort you want to listen to when it’s so hot you don’t want to move, and just want to sit in the shade and reflect.
“The White Light mixes are, ultimately, about two things: music and space.” Thats what the website tells me. In that case white might be the color of music, because going through my record music collection – everything seems to go about music and space. At first i had a playlist of over 4 hours of music, I started over again, inspired by the second theme. “White Light will always be about night driving” I read. So i made three categories: Landscape Driving, Autobahn Driving & City Driving. Upload your ipod, take your car and join us on this ride.
in other news, i was fortunate enough to support d.i.m. on saturday at transmission. it was one of those nights where everything fell into place. myself and salacious went back to back for a while, few songs each here and there, and then i ran into d.i.m.’s set. i know dave played some indie, some friendly fires, some juan maclean and some holy ghost!, but this is what i played.
