Chromatics – Black & White / A Mix for Autumn (Mixtape)

It's been a strong music showing these past few months for the Chromatics as the group follows up with a brand new mixtape led by the band's main producer, Johnny Jewel. This following and impressive LP (Kill For Love) and mixtape (Running From The Sun) that dropped earlier last month that garnered rave reviews all around. Today, enjoy a 45-minute mix includes tunes from Jewel's own personal projects along with pieces from Bill Conti, His Name is Alive, Blonde Redhead and John Carpenter to name a few. The mix was also delivered with the following statement from Jewel himself:

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.
