Dumpin Presents: HORROR SOUL VOL. !

(I wanted to make a cool cover picture for this, but I don't have access to my own computer and the one I do have access to doesn't have Photoshop, so just pretend there is a cool cover photo right here)

So I'm unemployed right now, and when I get unemployed I end up completing ideas I had three years ago that I was too lazy to complete at any given time. Sometime in 2005 I was listening to a Quiet Storm style internet radio station when there was some kind of mess up with the stream and a few songs played slightly slower than normal. Slowing down that kind of stuff really brings out this haunted vibe in the music while improving the overall listening experience for those of us who partake in marijuana smoking (or recreational cough syrup usage).

I am obviously not the first person to think of slowing down music. I'm probably not even the 56,293rd person to think of it, but this isn't exactly "screwed", it's slowed down just enough to zone out to, but you can still listen to it in pulic without people thinking you are too much of a weirdo.

This mix was my first attempt at creating "horror soul". It is unblended and nothing fancy because I'm just testing the waters, but I hope to make more volumes in the future. All tracks were lifted from my own records and not some bullshit mp3's that were manipulated in some crap program. It took me a few hours to do. Feedback is much appreciated (as in, 'this is not slow enough' or 'this is just right 4:20 everyday')
