remember september?

well i do. i had just moved to detroit, into my small little dorm room and into a life of loneliness and learning. uplifting, no? well there is a sliver lining to that college cloud. i spent more time on my new laptop than any human should and within the month of september i became a professional media pirate. frostwire was not aloud at my school so i had to figure out other ways to get music illegally, and this turned my life as i knew it into that of a blog surfer. i love music, more than anyone could ever know. it's there for you after a break up, after a fight, after you fail a test, after you get punched in the face. whenever, music sings like dogs never could. music is my girlfriend, music is my best friend. now that i've officially creeped out anyone who stumbled onto this blog, i'm letting you all know i'm going to upload at least one mix a week, today i'm uploading one of the first playlists i created while i was living alone. it includes many of the years most hyped artists, that i had been listening to obsessively at the time. at the end of the summer (and still) i was obsessed with the whole "dreambeat" "chillwave" "glo fi" thing. washed out remains my favorite, so there is a song by both ernest green's projects (washed out, lee weather), his friend chaz bundick (toro y moi) plus memory tapes and a sweet remix by neon indian. also the xx, girls, health, the drums, japandroids and a lot of other 2009 break outs. as well as some year oldish throw backs (css, department of eagles). this has been called a mix masterpiece by some of my friends, so now the rest of you can judge, this is "september 1" click here to download
