Words and Mix by Joel Ford of Games

I made a quick mix of electronic music for y’all. These jams have informed my taste for music appreciation, production, sound, and feel. These artists have been so crucial for me over the years and it’s pretty rad looking at them all lined up in a playlist. There’s an obvious contrast between the quick cuts of Max Tundra and Scritti Politti, and the lush ambient drone of Eno and OPN. I love it all. Hope you Dig. (Ed. Note: Go here for our exclusive Oneohtrix Point Never mix.)
