Bricolage Podcast #14 : Alpha Skies
Our October podcast is a trip down nostalgia lane in more ways than one. Putting aside the favoured and modern methods of overlapping tracks and mixing one into another, Alpha Skies, has instead given us a short half an hour mix in the most traditional form possible. Its an old school style mixtape session, some of his favourite tracks from his memories of being in dancehalls as a child alongside a few more modern selections and a few of his own 80s and 90s inspired electro creations and edits. It's littered with catchy synth stabs, soul type vocals and sweet 909 work. Put all those elements together and you have a school disco type vibe running throughout and an overall nostalgia soaked, feel good, sentimental listen. It's like summer never ended.
As always you can listen below or on our mixcloud.
