"Re-Entry" is the first mix that I am sharing with you. This mix is an exploration of a wide spectrum of musical styles. From slow, experimental, 80's Paradise Garage Classics, some 80's new wave camp and kitch, mid 70's Discotheque to Animal Collective. The mix is inspired by the dance floor concept of the re-entry. The legendary David Mancuso talks about how the concept of "re-entry" is one of the key ingredients at his Loft Parties. A re-entry means to include songs that are not necessary for dancing but used in other to educate an audience or to use them for primer or to clear the sonic palette and then use the "re-entry" song in other to create explosive reactions on the dance floor! This mix has been rendered with slow and unusual songs that are not made for dancing and yet some others have been reworked making the mix a sonic roller coaster ride. I'm not sure how well it would work on a dance floor but for your listening pleasure here it is. In addition, I am planning to feature a monthly mix with a track listing of all the songs featured in the mixes. Eventually you will be able to listen to some of them separately since some songs might have been previously featured on previous posts.
