The mix is droppin' early this month due to my vacation happening next week. Their are some great songs on the mix with the highlight being the Gardens & Villa cover of "Gypsy" by Fleetwood Mac. It's one of my favorite covers ever!
The mix art was inspired by the images below. I found this photo of the free diver a while ago and really like the intensity of the negative space. After the last mix art (scanography) I wanted to have one single iconic image with lots of saturated color. After I came across the image of the Nepon soda I knew I wanted to bite the color from it. I have also been waiting for an excuse to use a horror font but with reverse drips. The water concept actually makes it make sense. I photoshopped the divers head and hand to make him feel like he is swimming away from the turquoise slime. All in all, I feel like the cover has a sense of recreational doom (which is now my new band name). ENjO! the mix and the art, and have an amazing rest of July.
Note: There will probably be no posts until early August.
