The powers behind the Brooklyn, NY outfit Games remain mysterious to me. What data I have gathered behind this project is that they like it slow. In fact, they like it so slow that they’ve created a home for their sludgy, slower-than-molasses style disco on a tumblr site called Way Slower. Not only that, but these lovers of leisure have created a mix entitled ‘Heaven Can Wait – Mixtape Vol. 1’, which gradually takes classic italo/euro-disco hits down a long corridor and mutates them into massive, slow epics.
The mix could have been the background music to Buffalo Bill’s transsexual dungeon of paradise BEFORE we got to hear Q Lazzarus’s ‘Goodbye Horses’ in The Silence of the Lambs. But don’t let that creep you away now. This mix is magic…
