I think that i really want to go to camp bisco this year. Anyone wanna come with me? We can hang out with a bunch of non-threatening bros like these.
Just in case you’re not too familiar with the artists playing this year, I decided to use this mix to feature as many of them as I could squezze into 10MBs of low-quality audio. Enjoy!
Four Tet - Both When I am Alone and When When We Are: Sorry, no link for this one, off of a rare split 7” with Hella.
Das Racist - You Oughta Know: Earlier today I heard some dude blasting this out of his SUV on my street, good to know that these guys are making it to a lot of sets of ears.
Ratatat - Mirando (Animal Collective remix): I’ll be honest, I’m not the biggest Ratatat fan, but they are one of the main acts at this festival, so I thought I’d include this downtempo remix from the AnCo crew.
Holy Ghost - Do it Again: Lead single off of the best electro-rock of 2k11.
HEALTH - Die Slow (Tobacco remix): I wish HEALTH was playing this festival, they put on a remarkably high-energy show. The remixers here, Tobacco, will be though, along with Black Moth Super Rainbow with whom they share members.
Skrillex - Reptile’s Theme: Pretty much the marquee name in Dubstep circa May 2011. I’m not too deep in his catalog, as if choosing a random song he did for the Mortal Kombat soundtrack isn’t a clear enough indicator of that.
Cut Copy - Lights & Music (Moullinex remix): Cut Copy is pretty much co-headlining the festival alongside the Disco Biscuits, and while their last album was somewhat underwhelming, i’m sure that they’ll be more than capable to put in the work to move bodies with Foucauldian percision.
Neon Indian - Deadbeat Summer (Database remix): Yeah boy, Alan Palomo and co. spell a good time! I’ve seen them twice, once even in Palomo’s hometown of Monterrey Mexico and each time I raged my ass off, definitely a great addition to the festival circuit and I’m glad to see them willing to take the world by storm unlike some of the other Chillwave breakouts of 2009 (did someone say Washed Out, cough…).
Wiz Khalifa - The Thrill: Another marquee name of the festival. Admittedly I’m none to familiar with his catalog, I’ll leave that to the frat boys and Pittsburg backpackers, but I’ve always liked his laid back verses on this Empire of the Sun Track.
So did I convince anybody?
