Mixtape Of The Day 11/6/2016: Ubumix I


This should be interesting. The first 28 pieces on this mixtape were sourced from a long-existing web site called Ubuweb, a massive collection of avant-garde audio work that's one of the greatest things on the Internet. There was a method to the madness, but it would take too long to explain it and probably kill the mystery. It's pretty unlistenable at points. I'm good with that. I'm optimistically calling it Ubumix I, because it was quickly put together and I feel I can crank future versions out at a clip if I ever run out of ideas.

The final three pieces were originally planned for a topical mixtape that was going to be called either Donward or The Donward Spiral. You can probably figure out the orange-headed topic. I abandoned it because of time and lack of satisfaction with where it was going, so it'll remain my own little Beach Boys' SMiLE. Except that eventually did get finished.
