When I heard that “Chillwave” was a genre, music categorization became dead to me. It seemed that any pre-post-core-funk-wave-tech tune that popped up would get its new self-defining stamp.
Maybe I’m just jealous I don’t have my own sub-obscure genre to brand my band with. (Subcore anyone?) In any case, it’s no surprise I’d (I now shamefully admit) roll my eyes upon seeing this Post-Dubstep mix.
Well, rewind and repeat because this mix (and the blog generally) are well worth your earospace. With an all-star line-up that would even make the Miami Heat blush, this mix has all the a.fé favorites: James Blake, Jamie xx, Mount Kimbie, Burial, Fantastic Mr. Fox and Deadboy. So it’s time for me to stop hating and for you to turn this up. Hardcore.

Next time you’re at Schinkenklatschen Süd (literally Clap-ham South), Hundslangsam (Hound-slow), or Wasserklo (ie. Water-loo), be sure to bring this map along. An überliteral and amusing translation of all of London’s underground network’s stations into the language of Bastian Schweinsteiger (Bastian Pig-mounter), this is a great example of how German isn’t the only language to come up with silly names (see Chalk Farm, Canning Town and Cockfosters).
