It’s Mix Time! Tough Aesthetic

The title of this mix is a reference to the ArcelorMittal Orbit by Anish Kapoor and Cecil Balmond. Balmond accepts the criticism of the structure commissioned for the London Olympics saying that it’s a ‘tough aesthetic’. Indeed.

There’s really nothing tough about this mix at all. I think it’s rather smashing (if I may be so bold – I’m equally upfront when I think it’s ropey, so indulge me).

And some very educational tracks this time too. Deadmau5 references a freaky Ray Bradbury short story from 1951 and Dubplate Dionysus pay a tribute to New York drag documentary Paris Is Burning.

The rest is the usual bubblegum of love and dancing.

And horses.
