My tones


For a while I've been wanting to put together a mixtape that was composed of new and recent music that I have been listening to and enjoying in 2011. And finally I have. In some ways this has parallels with the autumn 2010 mix I did, but the sounds and approach most definitely differ. While this is only a partial representation, it definitely shows a couple of significant sets of sounds and labels I have been exploring this year. There are quite a few tracks in there from Not Not Fun, the killer new Oni Ayhun remix, a track from one of my favourite labels of 2011, M=minimal, a whole bunch of different takes on synth music, plus some other random stuff. 

The title of the mix - "Dash forward, bravely!" - is a phrase that has stuck with me since first reading it in a very old Japanese book almost 10 years ago. I am very happy to have this mix over on Pontone, which has one of the most interesting and worthwhile mix series online, as far as the ssgs are concerned. It is a real pleasure to contribute to what they are doing. Much thanks to Pontone for having me.

Chris (MNML SSGS) presents “Dash forward, bravely!”

I hope you enjoy the mix. It is definitely much lighter than what you might normally expect from me.
