Mixtape for week 25, 2013

A strange mix of retro and dubstep this week. Hope you enjoy:

Modeselektor – Pretentious Friends feat. Busdriver

Genre: Dubstep

Info: A deep, throbbing injection of much needed dubstep.

The Lonely Island – Spring Break Anthem

Genre: Dance

Info: The latest Lonely Island album is a bit hit-and-miss, but this track is magnificent.

Parov Stelar – Booty Swing

Genre: Swing

Info: A modern swing song blended with a dance beat that really works.

The Naked And Famous – Punching In A Dream

Genre: Indie

Info: I’m almost getting bored of this kind of indie anthem. Almost, but not quite.

Wax Tailor – Time to Go

Genre: R&B

Info: A terrific R&B song with a creepy intro.

Grimes – Circumambient

Genre: Electronic

Info: Pendulous and swinging mash of electronic sounds and gentle singing that shouldn’t work, but it does.

Waldeck – So Black & Blue

Genre: Swing/Big band

Info: Another retro song in the Mixtape that actually bobs along in its swing style.

Caravan Palace – Dramophone

Genre: Electronic/Swing

Info: A blend of retro singing and instrumentation with an electronic backbeat and support.

Wiz Khalifa – Paperbond

Genre: Hip-hop

Info: A melancholy electronic violin sound backs this rap. It’s pretty standard, “I’m the greatest” kind of rap, but I still like it.

Zeds Dead – Rude Boy

Genre: Dubstep

Info: More hard, thrusting dubstep to end the Mixtape.
