colour the waves - a 2010 chillwave retrospective

as mentioned a dozen times before.... 2010 has been a great year for music lovers. it brought us some of the strongest releases, some great new artists and there was this chillwave thing. well, honestly... it still is. i wasn't really sure about chillwave at first, but i liked most of the chillwave labelled releases, at least until late summer. chillwave is not a 2010 thing.... it started way earlier and the whole thing is like a melange of various other styles such as dream pop, shoegaze, surf pop, house, techno, pop and electronic music. it hit me while i was in the right mood for exactly this kinda music. i put some of the best chillwave labelled tracks on this compilation. i could have made a 2-cd compilation, but i decided to leave it at one cd. nevertheless, it's some sorta yearbook of great chilled out music.... memorabilia of a great spring and an even greater summer 2010.
