The Wages of Sin

The concept for this mix is something I have given a lot of thought the last few years. I don't know if it has to do with growing older and experiencing more of life or what. "The Wages of Sin" is about the balance between wrong and right, good and evil that gets all tangled up in this messy thing called humanity. It's about dual, conflicting desires, and how these things coexist in every single one of us.

While not exactly the most light and summery topic, this is a mix I have intended to create for a while now, so I took this opportunity to do so. I hope you all enjoy!
