The Sweet Life Music Collective presents Mexico City Heart 
there was no use of reverbs, echos, or other manufactured fx in the making of this album. all fx heard were done by mic placement, distortion to tape, backward tape flipping and other analogue concepts. 

this album was recorded on a 16 track, analogue, tascam deck and mixed personal and by hand. no digital technology was used in the tracking and mixing of this album. 

digital tends to fail earlier while anologue technology tends to fail later. but when analogue finally fails, it is usually finite. like people and bones it will finally turn to dust, and disperse into the cosmos to start again.
