10 years ago I started Dodonest to share fun mixes of indie and electronic music.
29 dope playlists later and I’m quite happy with how the project went. I received much support, thousands of downloads, and even a few words from some actual bands that i highlighted in the early years.
Thank you for being a follower of Dodonest and I hope you have enjoyed listening to my playlists.
So with an eye on future projects in the horizon, I want to end it on a high note with my funnest mix ever. It promises to be all kinds of hype with old indie favorites as well as underground acts.
It’s been a deep, dark, hot summer. Bright lights in night scenes, break through the hazy atmosphere. Cursed 2017 is half-over and all we want is to turn the music louder. So inundate your senses with electrophonic noise of every color. It;s been a deep, dark, hot summer. Bright lights in night scenes, break through the hazy atmosphere.

The DodoNest 2016 winter mix is out now, and personally, this feels like one my best ones 🙂 There are some wonderful new tracks in here, most from this year, from both underground and well-know artists.
Michael Kiwanuka is an upcoming blues musician that gets you to feel the groove in “One More Night.” I already had my tickets to see him perform but he got throat infection or something and cancelled. UGH! 2016 just gotta carry on being a shit like that. 🙄
“Come” is an amazing, upbeat song by an eclectic young French artist named Jain who comes at you with a big sound you can’t help but move to. A lot of great indie rock tracks that have gotten me through this ugly butt0-end of the year. (“Get Out” by Frightened Rabbit is my mantra right now).
Funky, groovy, and upbeat but with a hints of remorse. That’s the theme in this mix.
Better things are coming, so just hold on… ’til the morning!

New winter mix for 2016 is about to drop, but i still cant decide what to title it. HAHAHA! Usually i say something “deeep” or someshit but im SO done with this horrible year i just wanna call it FUCKOFF2016GOODRIDDANCE!
So… ANY SUGGESTIONS??!!
This year has, however, been good for music. And given all the madness that has come this year and the angst we are about to receive 2017 with, i am actually hopeful we will see a resurgence of music as retaliation, and perhaps some fresh new fight-the-machine anthems … gleams of light as we stare into the coming darkness
