2010 Xmas Mix: Still Fresh



A dark ambient / glitch take on the holidays, with some great artists:

Holidays can be a time of great joy, but sometimes, let's be honest, other feelings intrude. My friend the psychiatrist says he takes more calls during holiday times than any other time of the year-- calls from sad, angry, desperate people. If the symbol of the winter holiday is a toy, perhaps for some it would be a broken toy. This mix uses glitch, circuit bent and other sounds to explore the darker sides of toys, and of the holidays themselves. Mixed by Mystified, here is a set from the Land of Broken Toys. Thanks to all participating artists!

Featured Tracks:

1. Transitonal Drone- Mystified
2. Trip Down Memory Lane- Adamned Age
3. przestrzen-rozproszonych-funkcji-ponowoczesnosc- rakombinacje
4. Eliot's Broken Toy- Tribe Of Astronauts
5. Searching For New Species- Dyman
6. Captain Kirk Remix- BpOlar
7. ice-nine- Fosel
