Altered Zones | January 2011 | Mix Series v5 | Sumsun

Welcome to the fifth installment of Altered Zones' monthly mix series. You may have noticed that we went overboard during the holidays, posting daily mixes from the cats behind some of our favorite albums of 2010. All the heads were there: Games, How to Dress Well, oOoOOMark McGuire, Rangers, Autre Ne VeutClive TanakaThe SampsBig Troubles, Cloudland Canyon, and Yellow Swans. Well, now that we've recovered from all that self-imposed sensory overload, we asked Sumsun, one of our favorite new artists on Leaving Records, to pick out his favorite AZ discoveries from January and mix them up with a few others he's been feeling lately.

We first posted about Sumsun back in August, when fellow Leaving artist Oscar McClure dropped a remix of "Leaves." But when he hit back in November with his Samo Milagro cassette, we pretty much fell apart. Take a listen to "Wind Stone" from that album at the bottom of this post, along with his beautiful remix of Hard Mix's "Alright," which turns Marvin Gaye and Tammi Terrell's Motown classic "If I Could Build My Whole World Around You" from an upbeat love song into a futuristic heartbreaker.
