for the 2005 holidaze i created a limited-edition 2-mix compilation entitled ice melts. each mix is an atmospheric, emotive journey to the heights of love or the depths of loneliness. the limited-edition discs have all been pritned, packaged and mailed around the globe. for those of you not lucky enough to receive the discs, they're available below for download.|
this is not another ibiza chillout compilation, nor is it housey house dancey dance hits. nor is it all blue skies and soulful divas and songs about california. with the good comes the bad, of course, and these two mixes encapsulate the precious balance of life, of love, of seasons.
above, you'll see the stories and tracklistings for each of the two mixes. the first [ice melts cold] is cold—bitterly cold. empty. black. bleak. angry. depressed. just like my soul. i joke, i joke [as if i had a soul, please!] we sometimes need a good cry, an unhealthy unreciprocated obsession, an angry broken heart.
a bit of pain is better than not feeling at all.
enjoy this mix with the lights out, the windows open, in an uncomfortable chair. loud. or walking in the winter sleet.
after jonny tears you down, he builds you right back up. the second mix [ice melts hot] is a warm summer breeze which hugs you and envelops you and is fluffy smiles and gentle sunshine and flowers dancing and birds chirping and pure contentment. it's love, pure and plain and beamed straight into your core. enjoy it as background music at your next fête, or do as jonny does and crank it out of your car stereo with all the windows down.
waves crashing, sun baking, flirtatious breeze carrying away life.
i hope this warms your winter, and i wish you all the best in the coming year...
