Now this has been a long time coming. The last few months for me have been a ride, to say the very least. January, usually a slow time in my life was quickly filled with personal projects I had been putting off for a long time. I followed up with a lot of people I’ve wanted to collaborate with, under the assumption about 30%-50% of them would have the time to commit to a collab… imagine my surprise when just about everyone was into working together.
Long story some-what short, I asked my friends in Sex with Strangers (@SWSmusic) to put together a Mixtape for me at a pretty busy time for them as well. When I sent them a message asking for the Mixtape they had just begun a Canada-wide tour, so it took them awhile to get back to me.
Unfortunately, when they finally did, I was juggling a ridiculous amount of other projects and work which had started to pick up, so this last weekend was literally the first moment I had to sit down and commit to producing a mix and cover. Honestly, it’s felt a little like Hatch (of SWS) is skulking in the corner, peering over my shoulder, wringing his hands gleefully as I’m listening to the final mix.
And this is a good thing.
