    Nuggets 100 – Chullwave (redux) 

    Nuggets 100 - ! - Chullwave web

    Last time I approached a mixtape anniversary (the 100th),  I decided to make a series of mixes with different themes highlighting what I had come to love over the previous 99.

    This is mix remains one of my favourites, the first 7 tracks in particular; dreamy voices lost in the mix. I liken them to electronic versions of Phil Spector’s Wall of Sound.

    Why chullwave? Well, at the time I made this mix the music wags had yet to decide on a name for the keyboardy electronic sound with processed voices that was becoming popular. Chillwave,  or better chullwave as one Scottish blogger termed it, is / was a term bandied about for this sound.

    Nuggets 152 – Mushy + Glitchy 2 

    Nuggets 152 - Mushy + Glitchy 2

    A warm, mushy mix that gets a bit more frenetic towards the end...

    Grump, grump. I found the time to put this mix on the interweb, only to find that grooveshark is off line. No shiny new tunes then. If it makes you feel any better, here is the cover.

    Its a warm, mushy mix that gets a bit more frenetic towards the end… Will upload the songs when grooveshark gets better.

    All good now.
