In Oct 2011, I released my debut self-released tape. This was followed by the release of 5 consecutive digital albums from the period of November 2011 to April 2012. Those albums are the focus of my first-ever video mixtape. After those releases, I returned to including a physical element with my recordings (with the exception of my 2013 digital-only EP Window Of Time with Paxico Records).
During the aforementioned string of digital releases, I gained a reputation as a prolific artist. Since then, I have grown to be more selective about what material I release. I’ve always felt that hidden within the 89 tracks spanning those 5 albums, is some of my favourite and most interesting work. For this reason, I have curated a nearly hour-long mix of my choice cuts from this period.
This mix has been recorded at my home with visuals provided by the Critter And Guitari Videoscope. This simple video synth was manipulated by me over the course of each recording, making each video unique. Each tape is hand-numbered and decorated with custom, one-of-a-kind decals.
I hope you enjoy this video, whether zoning out on the couch or as entertainment for a gathering of loved ones. -V-F!
