Here in greenhouse NYC, our only real theme is "sweltering," so this mix is a reflection of soupy, unrelenting humidity. A heat mirage. A little dancing, but not too much, because we must lie down and rehydrate. Ready the sweat-bucket.
--Jeff Siegel

This mix started from my end -- where in the fickle Ohio heat and rain and wind, I'm forced to celebrate summer with a "home" vacation. That is, with the price of gas and food and alcohol going through the fucking roof, trying to conjure up a seasonal fever dream is confined to the basements, backyards, and dive bars of Columbus. So excuse the randomness, the scruffy edges, the teenage nostalgia. I don't have beaches or skyscrapers or foreign flights to pad my imagination this year, only scuzzy, cigarette stained hangovers, bong rips, and lo-fi escapism. Jeff did a wonderful job juxtaposing my trash heap -- giving us the soaring solar to my claustrophobic nocturnal.
--Kevin J. Elliott
