Halo-Halo Vol.2 | New Wave MusicIt turns out I have visitors returning for my first mix. Many thanks to those who have and gave it a listen. So it was a pleasure to create its follow-up, another mix of the New Wave/Synthpop genre – again, from the late 80s and early 90s.

It really is another creative outlet I enjoy and definitely worthwhile once the piece finalizes. As an artist of sorts, there’s a sense of satisfaction when finished with a particular work or project. Mixes are no exception.

I didn’t realize how much effort it takes (at this point anyway) to create something that sounds like it’s supposed to go together. Over 3 months, I mixed many different tracks until something finally emerged. It’s kinda funny how the middle was supposed to be the beginning. But I couldn’t resolve the rest of it, so I worked backwards to finish.

This time, I’ve made it available for download from the beginning. A good number of remixes remain unused from my library, so I probably have enough for another volume (or two) of New Wave… until then, enjoy!

Halo-Halo Vol.2 is dedicated to Tin and the other one, who have been motivation and inspiration, respectively. I’ve reflected them in the cover artwork.
