Recommended Tracks: 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 9, 10, 12, 13
1. (5:00) **Zig zag (con Impvlso) – Atmospheric piece made of found sounds, beats and distorted vocals. Like sleepwalking in a foreign country.
2. (4:51) ***Surf fronterizo – Epic track with California psych pop sounds merging with “sonidos Jarochos” and layers of found noises and echoes. Sonic beauty.
3. (2:52) **The Chills (con Vicco de Caicedo) – Psych-folk remixed piece. Watery ending.
4. (5:43) Juventud en éxtasis – Chillwave piece a la Animal Collective. Trippy.
5. (1:20) *The Chills (la seca mix) – More California psych pop here. Deconstructed piece. Cool bass line.
6. (2:52) The Chills (Original Mix) – Same as track 3. Part of The Chills Remixes bonus album.
7. (3:13) The Chills (Manuel Printzen Edit) – Part vaporwave, part ambient. Minimal.
8. (3:54) **The Chills (Julián Name Remix) – Expanded version of “la seca mix” with more complex synth parts and a medium-up tempo. Catchy.
9. (2:38) *The Chills (Spacetrilla Remix) – Downtempo pop version. Almost abstract.
10. (5:55) **The Chills (Dañez Remix) – Californian bedroom pop piece. By minute 4:18 switches to an upbeat tempo. Dig.
11. (8:40) The Chills (Raliuga Remix) – Downtempo meets dub meets Nortec. Cool.
12. (4:41) *The Chills (José Soberanes Remix) – Lo-fi bedroom pop. Very personal interpretation.
13. (2:56) *The Chills (MΔ TΣ Remix) – EDM version. Beats here, beats there.
14. (3:06) The Chills (ArgonBeats Remix) – Vaporwave meets dub. Perfect ending.
