MXTP MONDAY 21: SYNTHETIC DREAMS // ANALOG NIGHTMARES

We're back with our second ever guest tape, a selection of songs from Vile Maxim, new conjurer of synthetic darkness and beautiful, cinematic audioscapes. This tape, like his music, is a wonderful collection of happy, dreamy, haunting, and completely enveloping electronic instrumentals to sate your post-Stranger Things sonic lust. This mixtape goes from spirited and warm to weird real fast. It's a frenzied sort of weird, without any loss of vibrancy between the many layers of music and many artists on the tape. Vibrancy is the big electric motif holding this whole thing together. Big hitters on this joint, in our humble opinion, are Sunset to Sunrise, Want U, Pale Flesh, and Souls at Zero. Souls at Zero is such a crushing crescendo of equal parts evil, climax, and cathartic noise...just listen to the tape. Enjoy below.
