This mix was originally on a C-90 for Alex Raoul as a birthday gift at the beginning of May (hence the image above, and it’s considerable length). At his insistence, here it is in all it’s glory. The title refers to the exciting and uncertain time this has been made as a backdrop to. It features some of my favourite tracks and artists from the last year or so who seem to share similar aesthetics.
