You’ve been waiting 30 days since you last trip. Here’s the ELECTION edition of VACATIONLAND and it’s the longest mixtape yet. The point here is to get you fired up for next Tuesday while simultaneously getting you to chill real hard. Also: perfect for your Halloween parties this weekend.
Note that the sound bites and music are not endorsed by any party and reflect no one’s views — other than a sense of humor and some good times.
Also: this mixtape is dedicated to Brooklyn Dad #1, John Benjamin.
You’re about to have a great 59 minutes and 54 seconds — it’s time to go to VACATIONLAND.
If you’ve been listening to the development of the VACATIONLAND mixes, you’ve noticed some new things with each release. First it was video teasers, then it was vocal samples, then I added in atmospheric samples and now I’m working to make all these elements not only tell a story, but fit in musically. I hope that’s cool and something you’re into.
This mix has taken a ton of time, and man oh man, has it been worth all the sweat, the tears, and the bloooooood. We had a three part shoot for the teaser in New York City, Florida and on the beach on Plum Island. It went reallll well thanks to ofclouds, chris and the LTs. Look out for the video right here as soon as it’s available. I’ve also had 3 drafts this month, and I usually only do 1 or 2. Time intensive, ladies and gentlemen.
I’ve been editing a lot of audio at work so haven’t had much time to find new music — you can tell by the enormous lack of new content on the zen zone. That being said, I was able to wrap up a sexy-as-hell selection for you to relax to on this oh-so-fine Labor Day Weekend. This is all thanks to your regular suggestions and mix requests. You know who you are.
Anyway, here’s VACATIONLAND August Legalize It. It is meant to represent the coming fall, the end of the summer. I couldn’t have made a more obvious thematic choice, but it’ll resonate for sure, bro.
VACATIONLAND #4 ‘All Day Long’ out now. GET IT GET IT GET IT.
IMAGINE THIS: It’s mid-afternoon on a beautiful Friday in July. 82 Degrees, a cool breeze. At about 3pm, your boss walks in and says “You ever heard of Summer Fridays?” You head for the water and never turn back. As you walk toward the beach, through the concrete and heavy city, a weight is lifted from you because you approach a group of your friends and they already have a stereo set up. This time, it’s “All Day Long” that welcomes you to the weekend. The sun is beginning to set and your cut-off white jeans are ready to party.
You can relax! You deserve to dance to only the greatest French Touch, Electro-Pop, House, R&B, Disco and Soul.
