“I’m into being sampled, but I’m not as into collaborating, because there are so many people involved. When you’re just sampled, you don’t have to do any work, you don’t have to talk to anybody, you don’t have to sit there and fight for your song. You just get paid.”

Nightswimming Ep. 8 for Space Invader Radio by Nightswimming on Mixcloud

Nightswimming Ep. 8 for Space Invader Radio

Here we are at the last episode of 2012. I decided not to feature a best of the year but a mix of new songs and oldies…but can you tell which is which without looking at the playlist?

Of course Chromatics are featured (definitely my favourite record of the year) with two tracks from the upcoming vol. 2 sampler of the Italians Do It Better label (one of which is a fab New Order cover). Also unexpectedly - as i compiled the mix a week ago - the Pitchfork song of the year, Oblivion by Grimes (yay for my taste, I guess?) and foulmouthed newcomer Chlöe Howl.
Enjoy!
And happy holidays!

Kit
PS: the Space Invader Radio mix will return in January 2013 with a new schedule (and a new Nightswimming avatar). will keep you posted.

It’s been a crazy couple of weeks…After Paris & Amsterdam…Chromatics flew from London to Australia for two weeks of festivals…Then Natty & I hopped on a plane from Brisbane…to Singapore…to Abu Dhabi…landing in Berlin 30 hours later in time to have breakfast with Ida…Symmetry played our first show that night opening up for Glass Candy in Berlin at Karl Lagerfeld’s book release party…Patron with Oko…then Night Flight to Quebec…Brazil in the morning…Glass Candy throws a party in Sao Paulo for Bazaar’s birthday. After looping the globe twice…We’re finally back in Montreal for one of my favorite times of year. It’s the end of Autumn, & all of the Reds, Greens, & Yellows have disintegrated into Black & White. Everything is buried by the snow…Perfect weather for locking yourself in the studio with a synthesizer & your favorite records…I put together a collage of songs that, for one reason or another…always remind me of Autumn.

Something Old.
Something New.
Something Borrowed.
Something Blue.

In other news…The last couple of mixes for After Dark 2 are finally done. Five years in the making…Wow! It seems like a blurry dream. I just got the fully remastered test pressings for “BEATBOX” & the first “AFTER DARK” today via Canada Post. We’re doing limited runs on Crystal Clear Vinyl with foil covers. We are also adding two new beautiful Chromatics T Shirts & a hot new “After Dark 2” T Shirt into the store in a few days…XS,S,M,L,XL…and if you live in the southeast…Make sure you catch our last party of the year. Chromatics in Miami For Art Basel next week.

Enjoy the music!
