Speaking of dark bands doing light mixes, on Wednesday this mix from San Fran’s oOoOO started making the rounds. Actual Pain is a clothing label from Seattle. I don’t know what connection the two have but Actual Pain does have a pretty interesting site. Check the mixtapes section.
Accompanying an excellent cover this mix is heavy on disco-y 80s rnb, the type of music that Nite Jewel has been putting out. Though oOoOO original “Hearts” has been around for a while it makes an official debut on this mix and really makes sense within the context of this mix. You can make distinct connections between the newer oOoOO sound and the sounds showcased here.
Nocera – Let’s Go
Barbara Mason – Another Man
Sylvia Striplin – Gimme Your Love
S.O.S. Band – The Finest
