It’s Better to Sweat than to Shiver (It’s Always Warm at the Afterhours)

Making the decision to hit the afterhours is always something of a gamble, but the one thing you can count on is that you?ll never be cold. Between the reliably poor ventilation and the way dancing bodies exist as burning embers, the warming effect is instantaneous; in the same way jumping into the ocean instantly refreshes a body beset by heat. Sure, you run the risk of rubbing up against one of those dudes who inexplicably dance with their shirt off, which is the dry land equivalent to being stung by a jellyfish, but being unnerved by that experience is actually just an indication that you haven?t done enough drugs.

It?s Better to Sweat Than to Shiver finds me exploring the lo-fi house sound that has come to define my hometown of Vancouver, without sticking to that too rigidly as a mandate. This first mix of the series starts hints at my current infatuation with slow house music, before accelerating to an afterhours tempo, but with a softer palette. The second installment stays in that space for a more purist selection that was born of the afterhours experience but is designed for bedroom listening.
