The Baltimore-based pair, Life On Planets, put together a mixtape for us full of groovy beats and sensitive voices. This mix, that includes three previously unreleased tracks, pulls together some of the recent moods in Disco and Deep House.
Titled “Love is Blind” by its composers, it gives you time to gather your thoughts. As a bit of musical meditation, directing your mood and informing your emotions, it’s perfect to put on while focussing on work or at the gym. Playing it after hours, or while walking through the city, allows you to delve into the deep grooves that it throws up. Let yourself to get lost in its persistent beats and powerful melodies.
The eponymous idea, that Love is Blind, is pervasive in this mix. Life On Planets were also keen to include a feminine side to the mixtape as well. With plenty of female vocals as a contrast to the male partnership’s own productions, the mix offers up two sides to a romance. And despite its eclectic fusion of genres, the end result is a consistent piece of emotional storytelling.
