But ain’t that what you’re s’posed to do?
Sinaisthima (συναισθηματα) translates from greek into english as “feelings”. There isn’t a better title for a mix that brings out serious cathartic feels. Mixed by DJ, menswear aficionado and, all around PleasantBoy, Scott Mirts (WWW.IMSTILLUP.COM, @SCOTTMIRTS), exclusively for This Is Not New.
The cover art is designed by Jack Rael (THIS IS NOT NEW) and features an illustrated mixed media image. The most prominent graphic references the French film La Belle Personne (The Beautiful Person). The themes of the film include the illusion of happiness, fleeting emotions and curbed desires. Mixed into the image is a reference to Blue and Grey by Mark Rothko (1962), which is considered to be one of the clearest examples of Rothko’s movement into darker themes in his work. The cream and blues of the image have been theorized to represent sensuality and doom, tragic art and an overall balance towards hope.
8x8 archival prints of the cover art are available for $15 on WWW.THISISNOTNEW.COM. All profits go towards iFred (International Foundation for Research and Education on Depression), a non-profit charity that challenges societal stigma around depression through education, prevention and research.
