konkrit mixtape: GRRRRLS


File under: People I will love until the day I die.

I made a mixtape for two of them upon request but hope the third also enjoys it. And maybe you do, too.

Stream it on Mixcloud. Download via WeTransfer (valid for 7 days).

It is almost 4 hours long and features 50 tracks, stylistically ranging from House to Techno, Ambient, Pop old and new, Folk, Hardcore/Punk and its erratic and/or melancholic offsprings.

I pieced it together spontaneously the night after I returned from Hamburg where I met all three of them for the first time in many years. Featured are tracks which are very important to me; tracks which I’ve recently enjoyed; tracks which remind me of them and tracks which I hope they would enjoy (or you). I also like to come across as an eclectic snob once in a while, so there you go.

If there’s something like a narrative in there, it’s about a person who wants to go clubbing but then gets stoned and sad for a variety of reasons; blames the state for said sadness and decides to smash it; eventually gets very optimistic about that but ends up watching Jurassic Park and a documentary about British coal miners instead of doing anything (which is totally okay in my book).

Let me spoil the ever hysterical track ID game for you if you please:
