I finished curating the mixtape Not my king while living in Somio, outskirts of Xixon, however most of the inspiration came from our times living in the caravan in the meadow.
the collapse of the old and brittle.
a new way forward.
Fémina: Los senos (Argentina, 2011)
Originally, I got to know Fémina through their amazing gig at KEXP. It’s a powerful band from Patagonia playing hiphop-soul-folk music. In the past year, I had the chance to live together with an Argentian family and I feel like even more bonded to their music now. Nonetheless, a great opportunity to practice Spanish listening comprehension.
TEKE::TEKE: Yoru Ni (Montreal, 2021)
This group is from Canada. They play some badass Japanese influenced rock music. This particular song is a crazy surf rock hit.
CONSUMATA: Vida (New York, 2019)
Riding the same wave, Consumata mixes in some cumbia, dub and punk.
Ignacio Maria Gomez: Nensalinya Teni (Argentina, 2020)
I discovered Ignacio’s music through Ana. It’s not the typical genre I would dig. Perfect for slow, gloomy mornings.
Amino Belyamani: 1833 (New York, 2011)
I bumped into this NYC based band while exploring Bandcamp. They play North African jazz music. I particularly enjoy this song because of the tribal influenced piece it features in the middle of the song.
Zoe Keating: The Path (Vermont, US, 2010)
I love the double bass and cello. I started to appriciate these instruments thanks to some jazz impro bands I had the chance to see live in Budapest. Then Dawn of Midi showed me how to create electronic music with a double bass.
Zoe Keating is a one-woman cello orchestra using a loop machine to combine her samples.
Michael Rother: Feuerland (Brussels, 2017)
Michael Rother was a member of both Kraftwerk and Neu!, pioneers of electronic music and krautrock. It turns out, he had solo projects too.
La Ira de Dios: Empirea (Lima, 2003)
Peruvian space rock. I guess this is a rock music mixtape in the end.
Thurston Moore: Hashish (London, 2020)
I don’t resonate so much with Moore’s poetry, but his guitar play is mesmerizing. I could listen to his riffs forever and forever more.
GDDLF: Fue fantástico estar bien (dirty mix) (Oviedo, Spain, 2020)
A zero kilometre produce. Rock music from the capital of the region where I live at.
Holnaplányok: Exeim a csicskáim (Budapest, 2019)
Contemporary, feminist punk from the country I was born at.
Meszecsinka: Ég veletek (Budapest, 2022)
Meszecsinka has just disbanded. Ég veletek! My favorite Hungarian band. Probably they were the band I saw the most times in my life. They played a beautiful collage of world music and psychedelic rock. I will really miss them.
Hang Massive: Sudden (Bristol, 2018)
I purchased the songs on Bandcamp. If you can afford, please support the artists too. If you wish to have direct access to the mixtape file, please message me.
