Listen: Jam City's Send (with added mixtape nomenclature crisis)
Jam City's new mixtape Trouble sits somewhere between glimmering pop and grimy bass music. It's doing weird things to my ears and I like it.
The London producer is offering Trouble free to download. You can swipe it from his site here. And have a listen to Send above, which is all emo pop and fat horns. Which incidentally are the first few words of my Grindr profile.
This has left me wondering. Can you really have a mixtape anymore? Isn't this a mini-album? An EP? Should you be able to play a mixtape on shuffle? What is a tape anyway? What is anything? Does music really exist? Am I perhaps overthinking this?
