To celebrate Valentine’s Day, we bring a gift for those who have an impossible love, especially if it unfolds without a sorrow. The following is a 2 hours and 25 minutes mix, specially prepared for the occasion, courtesy of a member of our team, Abraham Araujo [DJWOWQuéDJ].
Our Backroomix #0002 “If They Don’t Love You… Let’s dance” works as an invitation in mixtape form, flavored with cinematographic extracts that illuminate some ways of unanswered love, crossing a wide range of cloying melodies, some reassuring and some others allusive to dancing and celebrating like there’s no tomorrow after the disenchantment of love.
Happy day to all of you lovebirds, shameless rose-manipulators, bosses and secretaries, hardened singles, teen-aged couples and newly engaged. May all of you be welcome to listen and, of course, to dance.
