The Golden Apples of the Sun presents

subsurfer mixtapes.. listen like its 2007…

Over a decade ago way back in 2007 the Subsurfer mixes appeared. They were uploaded over a few years by a ‘mysterious’ blogger (well mysterious from what I was able to find out back then and again after some more recent research). The mixes were uploaded on LiveJournal the obscure and controversial predominantly Russian social networking site.

They were great selections of mellow/chillwave/glo-fi/electronica/folktronica and early dreampop. There were around 30 mixes. I had a look online and I do not think you cannot find them but I downloaded them all and still have them so with respect to the legacy of Subsurfer’s great curatorial work I am going to upload a few of the best ones for your listening pleasure.

subsufer 707

subsurfer 707 is definitely a Golden Apples favourite with its sun-glistened Beach Boys, Panda Bear, Grizzly Bear vibe and beautitul sequencing.
