May 2011 mix by Bernholz

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.

Blue Sky Black Death

I never figured myself for the instrumental hip hop type but this has really taken me by surprise. A production duo based in San Francisco and Seattle, Blue Sky Black Death have just released their fantastic Noir album. Owing as much to dance music as it does to hip hop, the tracks are full of subtly nostalgic references to 80s indie, 90s dance, R&B, shoegaze and even metal.
