Happy 4/21 Everybody!
I thought about doing a great big weed smoke-out type of mix today, if that’s what you’re looking for, then let me send you to this great Nate Dogg mix by DJ KL, the first track alone will get you want to be. It’s an especially good mixtape to have because most of Nate Dogg’s best stuff seemed to be features, so this saves you the legwork of getting all of that together for yourself. This one’s also worth checking out - Warren G Nate Dogg Tribute Song. RIP.
My mix is remix heavy based on some of the more interesting stuff that’s been floating around over the last 2-3 days that just happens to be remixes. The Purity Ring and xx remixes are more straight-forward, With the fuzz/lazy vibe getting dropped on Purity Ring and the good old Deadmau5 & Kaskade treatment trancing out Shelter by the xx.
The more interesting ones are the MGMT remix by madman Japanese musician/(and I guess now)producer, Cornelius, this is the first remix I’ve ever heard him do. He makes MGMT sound dumb for doing the song their way. I can’t say the exact same about Thurston Moore working Crystal Castles. It’s pretty cool, kinda sounds like it could have been a Trent Reznor remix, but it’s not! It’s our favorite old dude from back in the day.
NOTE - For some reason, there is like 2 minutes of silence at the beginning, so just skip past that to get to the good stuff.
Yojimbo Billions - Blowzy
Toro y Moi - Still Sound (Coyote Clean Ups Detroit Dub)
MGMT - Brian Eno (Cornelius remix)
Crystal Castles - Celestica (Thurston Moore remix)
The xx vs. Kaskade vs. Deadmau5 - I Remember Shelter
Purity Ring - Ungirthed (Sunglitters remix)
Enjoy the mix, sorry about the big gap at the beginning.
PS - This is post 99, I plan on doing a big sleazy post for the big one hundred. Stay tuned.
