It’s no secret that Air is my favorite band in the world. I was actually watching an Air documentary last night and realized that they were doing the live electronic band with white outfits way before Soulwax was. These guys are still ahead of their time and when we look back in 2067 to bands that inspired the future, everybody will point to Air and hopefully this post.
Either way, enough of that trip. What I’m posting today is a 4 CD mixtape done by Air circa Moon Safari (1998). It was never released commercially, it was a radio promo that somehow found itself onto random store shelves. Thankfully someone out there in internetland ripped it for us to enjoy. So I present to you Deck Safari, a 4 hour mix of the influences behind Air’s seminal album Moon Safari.
