Genre defying and experimental, the new project from Villager, aka Alex Young, pushes all the right buttons. VILLAGER TAPE VOL. 1 is an eclectic 43-minute mix I can only describe as a sonic explosion of electronic, hip hop, ambient, trap, and house music. And truthfully, that description barely scratches the surface when it comes to the slew of influences found here. It’s such a trip to listen to all the way through, and it feels like a momentous release akin to Flume’s 2019, Hi This Is Flume Mixtape. High praise. Listen to the full mix below, along with a few of my favorite tracks; unique flips of Juice WRLD, Travis Scott, and Kanye West.
