A Year in Music Mixtape

Cantor: 1984

Artwork: Monoscopic

Next in line on our “A Year in Music Mixtape” series, based on our co-drivers favourite year in music, is California based producer, musician, and DJ Cantor, who also runs his own label Underground Pacific and has already graced us with a series of quality releases on labels such as Correspondant and Nothing is Real.

Our beloved producer “drives through” his favourite year, 1984, and delivers a sublime 60-minute mixtape full of classic tracks from that year. From Frankie Goes To Hollywood to New Order, and from Eurythmics to Herbie Hancock, Cantor’s “1984” mixtape is a ride to remember and it brings back so many memories.

In his own words: “1984 was a special one for me, for different reasons: political, musical, emotional. I was 12 years old and I remember so much about that year. My mixtape has been influenced by those different perspectives of course (political, musical, emotional). In the ’80s we had many circumstances that I think are very actual nowadays: wars and dictatorships in different part of the world, East and West cold conflict, the Big Brother (and Illuminati conspiracy theories ) myth, a sensation of insecurity and lack of freedom. Music can speak about all of that.”

Enjoy the ride.
