it is the first of september, which in south africa is traditionally spring day. well, spring day usually doesn’t fail to be delightfully miserable weather wise as far as my memory serves… probably due to the fact that the seasons only turn on 23 september this year (the spring equinox, which is also my birthday – write that down).

still, couldn’t resist temptation and so created a semi-electro inspired spring mix to kick off my favourite month.

Electric Spring. Playlist:

  1.  Alex Winston – Velvet Elvis (RAC Remix)
  2. St. Vincent – Cruel
  3. Future Islands – Balance
  4. Mina Tindle – Os Argonautas
  5. Little Majorette – Never Be The Same
  6. Toro Y Moi – New Beat (Star Slinger Dancehall Mix)
  7. Purity Ring – Ungirthed
  8. Kisses – Kisses (Electric Sunset Remix)
  9. Scenic – Another Sky (The Magician Remix)
  10. Phoenix – North (Crystalised remix)

all music is for sampling purposes only – please go out and buy the artists’ records & support them at their shows!

  1. Oooooh, what a treat! LOVE your music mixes. Will enjoy listening with the rain pelting down outside – gotta love CT weather! Have a wonderful birthday month xx

  2. You’ve really inspired me musically, and i’ve discovered loads of artists we don’t usually hear in Canada. Thank you!

  3. I can tell we’re going to be mutually complaining together this summer, right? we shall console ourselves with mixes such as these, and perhaps pretty pictures of people enjoying summer/spring and not sweating.

  4. this is exactly what 11:40 pm needs: sweet electronica with touches of light. it was so lovely that i shared it with some friends through tumblr. i definitely gave you credit, but if it bothers you, i can just delete it.
    thanks miss for making the night a little brighter.

  5. “North” Phoenix and “Balance” Future Islands are my favorite. They’re truly dreamy. You have excellent taste in music.

  8. It’s already the 7th of October, Miss Moss! I am getting some serious withdrawal symptoms… like twitching and sweaty palms… :)
    Love your music mixes. To say the least.

  9. I love your mixes and September 23rd is my birthday too, might explain why I can relate to you and your blog so well! Of course, here in the states Sept 23rd is almost always the first day of fall- my favorite season! Happy Belated!

  10. This is one of my favorite mixes ever, i’ve been listening to it non stop lately.
