No Difficulty

music is so relaxing, a calm port in the stormy world in which we live. this mixtape is so easy to listen to, with layers of lo tempo grooves blended together for a sound that melts in your ears. alternating between a grab bag of jazz, trip hop and library records it’s a mix you should have no difficulty getting lost in. an easy listen for easier times.

this is a real mix made up of imaginary soundtracks. “imaginary soundtracks” being anything from concept albums presented as movie soundtracks to cinematic beat excursions to music made for films that never got released to library records to fake library records to vivid ambient digressions to modern soundtracks of previously silent films to original music by famous movie composers to musical homages to famed film composers. all curated with luv to help your ears project images onto the inside of your eyelids. enjoy the film.

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.

after finishing this, the 300th mixtape on dj luv’s records, i wanted to collect my thoughts and go for a walk in the countryside. take time to slowly ramble down the road communing with the land, contemplating the big blue sky, and the future. the auditory expedition contained within was created to enhance such wanderings. let’s go for a walk.
