Number sixteen of the Soundscapes series. Polygrains has been simmering below the surface for a while now. His music, an eclectic electronic menagerie of beats, bleeps and shrieks, surveys the global sonic flotsam to salvage the glitter from the gutter. He’s assembled a nearly hour-long session of beats that are big, bold, and don’t follow a linear course. Polygrains’ preference for warm, multilayered synth melodies and playful drums colors the proceedings. The result is a bricolage of urban soupadelica fizzing and simmering with passion and melancholy. Yet another example of how we never know what to expect when a podcast mix shows up in our inbox.
This mixtape is made from music I have been listening to lately.
I could have chosen other tracks, and omitted some of the ones I put on it, but for some reason I didn’t.
