Christmas is tradition time and here at Adrian Recordings we have a nice little tradition of letting music producers, bloggers, DJ’s or other skillful people we like mix together tracks Adrian Recordings released during the year. Something really interesting happens when you turn the perspective and let music filter through other peoples mind.

The honorable task of doing the Advent
candlestick went to Martin Löfqvist ( Martin, that among many things does the artwork for Boeoes Kaelstigen.

This is the 4th year in a row that we present the “Adrian Recordings Advent Sunday Mixtapes”.

First mixtape of the year is made by Artisan Loyalist.

This is exactly what we hope for when we ask people to do our Adrian Recordings Advent Sunday Mixtapes. We send out tracks over the seas and back comes a different dimension. Artisan Loyalist is Rob Batke from Edmonton Canada. Rob is also a member of the excellent band Faunts. Under his moniker Artisan Loyalist he makes beautiful instrumental electro pop with a hint of IDM. During the year we have heard him remixing MF/MB/’s track “The Window” that gained a lot of attention when it was released.

Adrian Recordings has always been about braking borders of all kinds. This is an excellent example when everything just mixes up and when parts become larger together. Music travels from Sweden over to Canada and there Swedish singer songwriter Emil Jensen teams up, just next to German techno from Fex Fellini and the outcome is so simple and perfect.

It’s seldom that these mixtapes features some exclusive and new material. Here you find one new unreleased track from Edda Magnason and we’re also glad that Rob used the demo version of Emil Jensen’s “Lite väl John och Yoko”, added some extra drums and totally changed our view of the song.
