As part of Foxy Digitalis’s 2022 look back, I asked a handful of artists, labels, and friends to put together mixes of some of their favorites from the year, and I’ll share them throughout December and January.
Andrew Oda was a late 2022 revelation for me. His album, Back to the Body, is a dense, hypnotizing masterpiece (I just wrote about it last week, so I won’t repeat myself, but it’s quickly become one of my favorites of the year).
Some quick thoughts from Andrew Oda about this mix:
This mix kind of focuses on contrasts in atmosphere, dynamics, and masc/femme energies. The ever-shifting moods of life, internally and externally. All music is from 2022 (some reissues). Some stuff had to be cut down for length and did not include super long works, which I loved this year (kali malone-living torch !!!!) But all artists made works that I really felt and resonated with this year: some dark, some light, some pop, some not.
