Just in time for your holiday weekend, I give you the second mixtape that I made for ! Nevermind the fact that it is labeled “Amy’s Memorial Day Mix,” since she never listened to it until a week ago anyway. For all extensive purposes it’s now the “Independence Day Mix.” Why not? We’re just swapping one patriotic holiday for another.
It all makes sense in my head, anyways.
So what should you expect with this one? Well, if mixtape #1 was a nonstop dance party at the club, mixtape #2 is the after party. It’s a little more mellow than the last one, definitely a lot more eclectic, but it still has plenty of good songs to shake your booty to, if that’s what you’re into.
Plus: More variety!
Love Kings of Leon? Not only do I have a remix of Use Somebody by RAC, but I also have a cover of Knocked Up by Lykke Li.
Looking for a dance remix of classical music? Why the fuck not? I’ve got a beautiful Röyksopp edit of Steve Reich’s Electric Counterpoint: III. Fast.
How about weird-ass South African hip-hop? If you’re not yet familiar with Die Antwoord, you’re about to be.
Do you wish I had more classic soul divas on my compilations? Now I’ve got Dinah Washington, Etta James and Sugar Pie DeSanto! Plus a new soul diva in the form of Kelis!
And I know what you’re saying. If only Ben put on a 8-bit cover of The Pixies’ Monkey Gone To Heaven this mix would be complete. You know what? I’ve got that too!
I’ve got another 2.4 hours of music covering 34 different songs, all waiting for you after you click that link. So click it! It’s good! I promise!
Get it HERE.
As always, if you’re curious about any of the music on this compilation or just want to tell me what you like and what you don’t, let me know!
And stay tuned next time for a brand new mixtape that no one’s heard before!
