The Mix Up 2013, Vol. 2 of 2 – A City’s Frozen Pulse (part 1) (part 2)
Internet,
I used to have rules for these mixes. I used to publish them on time. I used to, I used to, I used to.
I promise you, I did.
The weather’s been cold and the days have been short. You’ll have to forgive me my abeyance of sacred mix-tape duty, right? Who could ever fault a man for doing the best he can? Ah, forget it. I’ve never been good at begging for absolution. 
Enjoy what you can. Throw away the rest.
Love,
ataxiwardance

The Mix Up 2013 vol. 1 of 2 – January To A Lost July (part 1) (part 2)
Internet,
Lo and behold ye blessed of fiber optic! I cometh to you bearing gifts: 59 tracks of beatific audio for your pleasure and enjoyment. Listen, love, and share. If anything in particular strikes your fancy, feel free to let me know.
I know that I’m a month late. Trust me, I know. The summer has been a trench battle with enormous collateral damage. The month of July was forfeit entirely. Completely lost to the hallmark indulgences of the twilight of my youth. Mired in excess, I press on. Each night I collapse into bed clad in my sweat and sneakers. Each morning I wake up on the set of the same low budget disaster film. I’m managing as best I can. Forgiveness please. Enjoy.
The rules as always:
Must be a song I fell in love with in 2013. Simple enough. Not an authoritative “best of” list. Just music that caught my ear for one reason or another.
Must have been released RELATIVELY recently. Somehow even more simple than the previous rule. I try to keep everything on my mixes published within the last few years. Under extraordinary circumstances, exceptions will be made.
Must not repeat artists from previous mixes. I try to keep the line up fresh. A few exceptions this time – I’m sure you’ll forgive me. Might downgrade this from “rule” to “guidance from an ineffective federal regulator.”
No Western Art Music. If you’d like to hear some of my WAM playlists, feel free to write me.
Love,
ataxiwardance

1/2 The Mixup 2012 [July to Dece] (Part 1) / (Part 2) (Spotify)
Hello Internet,
2012 has come to a close. Once again I have awoken from a haze of champagne and cold pizza to perform my sacred ancient custom: publishing a mixtape of popular music I enjoyed in some capacity or another during the past twelve months. 
Those have been paying attention will notice the following: (1) I actually already published a “midway mix” for 2012 in July. (2) This “second half” of the annual mix was particularly bountiful; weighing in with an impressive 46 tracks of rumpshakery. (3) The mix has been entirely curated on Spotify; which means that many meritorious musical efforts from the past year (e.g. Disasterpeace’s EXCEPTIONAL score to Fez) have been excluded. A tragic but necessary sacrifice in the name of expediency.
As always, here are the rules:
Must be a song I fell in love with in 2012. This doesn’t really aspire to be a “best of” mix for the year but rather tracks that caught my ear through exposure by friends, circumstance, and my own exploration. 
Must have been released RELATIVELY recently. I did bend this rule a bit. Nonetheless the majority of these songs were released in the last 2 years and all within the last decade.  
Must not repeat artists from previous mixes. Two minor exceptions this time: Dan Deacon and Prefuse 73. No regrets.
No Western Art Music. If you’d like to hear some of my WAM playlists, I’d love to share! Feel free to write me.
I have dutifully assembled and organized the tracks below:

Metronomy – A Thing For Me (Breakbot Remix)

"So this is the New Year, and I don’t feel any different…"

Still a relevant song for 2013 when it was released a decade ago.
