We’ve teamed up with our friends over at Snowball, as they gear up for their unique & massive festival in Denver, to bring you a special Fixtape from one of our favorite acts performing this year, Chrome Sparks. The music that Chrome Sparks has been putting out is nothing short of spectacular, layered with several mood-laced elements that have always picked us up, or better yet, put us down when we needed to chill. This tape in particular is very reminiscent of a journey through time, starting out very slow and ambient, finally stretching into a warmer flow where we can really let the music embody our soul and power our actions around mid-day. Let this tape guide you, excited to see where it takes us on our journeys.
Words From Chrome Sparks:
If you’re anything like me, you need some serious, possibly clinical help getting up in the morning. If you and I have anything else in common, it might be that the last thing in the world you want to put on while thinking about trying to begin getting out of bed is dance music. Give me Boards Of Canada or give me snooze. How then does BoC turn into grinding you coffee beans, putting on pants, and feeling like your diem is in dire need of carpe-ing? This mix was made with these thoughts in mind. It starts off with the sounds to which I usually sleep— William Basinski’s Disintegration Loops. following this, the first third is for assimilating into awareness. The next two thirds are for getting your pants on and moving your damn body. And then there’s Todd Rundgren because, well, sometimes I don’t know what to feel.
