luv397 Well That was Fucked Up

well that was fucked up

“well that was fucked up” sums up 2020 pretty well. things felt uneasy at the end of 2019, like the cracks in the bottom of the basin were getting bigger and bigger, and things were getting heavier and heavier. something was about to give. that’s why i titled the first mixtape of last year “Hold On” because it felt like 2020 was gonna be a rough ride. as i started putting together 2021’s inaugural mix i intentionally chose only new music from 2020 and unintentionally created a mix that represented the crazy year that was. “well that was fucked up” is designed to help exorcise our collective ill feelings from 2020 by grooving them out of our system. clearing our minds and souls to help us better tackle the challenges that lay ahead. may it help you power the future.

Flummoxed

my mind has been a jumble of confusion. so i took the swirling sounds, off-kilter rhythms and odd sonic signatures running loose in my mind and, with a synthesis of new and old, created a timeless void where we can go when we need to lose ourselves.

Don’t Mind Me

oh, hi there. don’t mind me. i am just putting some beautiful music up on the interwebs. much like i have been doin’ for about… oh well would you look at that. seems that this here mixtape marks the 10th year that dj luv’s records have been going around. that’s a mighty long time. but i’m here to tell ya that i don’t mind. no sir, not one bit. why i would be making these darn mixtapes anyway so i figure why not share ‘em. so don’t you worry, you can keep expectin’ ’em, cos as far near as i can tell we have only scratched the surface of what the Record Canyon has tucked away. thanks to those who have listened and shared. spread the luv, that’s what i always say.

Unnatural Mystic

for a brief moment the fabric of time and space folded in on itself creating an inter-dimensional vortex. it was at that instance the Unnatural Mystic appeared above us, hovering motionless in the sky. as it set it’s gaze upon us we slowly drifted upwards, lifted on layers of rhythms and sounds from the future past. entranced by the journey. lost in space.

luv365 A Burnt God Reboot

A Burnt God Reboot

five years ago i put up a mixtape called Robot Ground Beat comprised of techno music that was so heavily influenced by jazz that, at points, it veered right into it. while putting that mix together i came across an odd strain of downtempo electronic “jazz” deep cuts. here is a mix of the sounds found that day. a weird and wonderful “b side” companion to Robot Ground Beat where techno producers slow down and put some jazz on it.
