I really like taking completely different songs and putting them together into one cohesive mix. I think I did that with this mix. It starts out with a cool electronic indie song followed immediately by an experimental rap song, but how different are they really? Both feature hollowed out production that sounds like they were recorded in either a shower or a cave. Next, you get a song from Summer Camp’s excellent debut Welcome to Condale. That’s followed by an instrumental from DJ Sabzi, the production half of Blue Scholars. Both songs share similar melodies (the whistle on “Last American Virgin” and the synth line on “Trailer Park Bazaar”). I think throughout the mix you’re given these interesting pairings that ultimately form a killer series of songs. That was the idea, anyway.
