Never Ending Mixtape part 69


Welcome to the latest additions to my Never Ending Mixtape on Spotify.

Spotify has (rightly in my opinion) received a lot of bad press over the last few weeks. Neil Young has removed his work, Spotify has diverted substantial funds to paying podcasters and is going to sponsor Barcelona to the sum of £280 million over 3-years. Money that could and should go towards fairer deals for the artists on the platform.

I use Spotify for convenience. A high percentage of the music I listen to on the platform is stuff I own on CD or vinyl. I still buy physical releases, tickets and merch from the bands/artists I love. So I don't feel guilty about using Spotify. I just wish they would sort out a fairer deal. I'll be writing a blog on that soon. I've already started, but it may take a while!

Anyway, back to music. Some real gems to look out for. Empire of the Sun, Kate Bush and Aphex Twin side by side, some really cool remixes including the classic Vince Clark take on the Mondays Wrote For Luck and check the Air Moog Cookbook remix! We have some incredible songwriting, cool soul cuts, indie pop and some brilliantly ambitious soundscapes.
