12/08  F.O.C. proudly presents the “December Bliss” mix

December Bliss Mix

No reason to get TOO excited - it’s just a Spotify playlist. That said, it’s a rather eclectic mix ranging from jazz to electronica to triphop and blues.

Here in Sweden, the grim season has commenced. The sun makes a brief appearance - most often shielded by clouds - for a few hours, and then descends into extended darkness. Muted colours, perpetual rain, winter blues, and the quiet hope for snow and a white christmas.

The mix mainly contains classic tracks - many of them with a solid blue note. But there’s also a glimmer of hope for brighter seasons to come.
