a surprise. who would have thought that after four years time this site receives an unexpected update. while i always loved compiling mixtapes and compilations of my latest favourites, i felt for quite some time that this planet is being flooded with as many great music mixes as there are mediocre ones and that lead me to conclude that i’d rather leave this field for others, more enthusiastic actors and focus more on alternative ways of expressing myself. especially, bearing in mind that the amount of feedback to this very effort on these pages seemed to dwindle the more time was passing on. yes, you could possibly also just call it: ‘out of steam’.
well, four years fast forward. i have never lost my passion for discovering new and exciting music and since my latest relocation to an unknown part of this world i discovered a wealth of fascinating music of all kinds. vintage recordings, modern approaches and a mash-up of all that and everything in between. and so, this is where we are now: analogue monologues vol. 3.1
this volume features a variety of musical approaches from the asian continent. far from being able to provide a conclusive overview i decided to just pick up this effort exactly from where i left it last time around. and that is to browse the extensive catalogue of what is Free Music Archive for artists known and unbeknown to stitch together a somewhat coherent and pleasant mix featuring musical outlets which are rarely exposed to the northern latitudes of this world. it is time for this to be changing………
turn the volume up a little and please enjoy.
