This mix is by Miss Moss and is about growing up making tapes in the 90s.
Why It’s Pretentious: Sometimes, I think I was born a little late. I only caught the end part of the tape era, but that’s what’s always stuck with me— not CDs or miniDiscs or even iPods. This is the music I grew up on. Story goes, “Smells Like Teen Spirit” was the first song I ever danced to. I remember listening to No Doubt in Aventura Mall, the Red Hot Chili Peppers in Li’l Caesars, Beck in Michaelangelo’s Pizza. When my mom brought home The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill and my dad introduced me to The Cure. This mix would’ve been right at home in my purple and yellow Pokemon walkman. In fact, I’m probably gonna tape it right now.
