Can't Mix For Shit Volume 2


Celebrating almost a 100 downloads on Volume 1, I'm following up with Can't Mix For Shit 2, which continues to erect a middle finger at diversity requirements. Some artists might be a little overrepresented *Cough*Lifelike*Cough*, but who cares when the tracks are this good!

Daft Punk vs Pointer Sisters - Underground (7UP Radio Mix)
A whitelabel edit I know absolutely nothing about...

Fleetwod Mac vs Lifelike - Never Forget So Electric (Cut Copy Fusion)
Fleetwod Mac is a long time favorite of mine, and as you're going to notice from the number of Lifelike appearances on this tape, he is a new one. This amazing fusion originally appeared on the So Cosmic mixtape by Cut Copy.

Deadelus - Make It So (XXXChange Remix)
This track has a downtempo feel to it, but at the same time packs a lot of energy and has spectacular bridges.

The Count & Sinden featuring Kid Sister - Beeper (A-Trak Remix)
I really like the original, but as with everything else A-Trak, this remix came out golden. That beeper sound is driving me nuts though, it sounds exactly like my doorbell.

The Presets - This Boy's In Love (Lifelike Remix)
To an even greater extent than the previous track, I find the original absolutely awesome. I even used the Kernkraft 400 remix in my previous tape. This is off the same promo and is just as fantastic, if not better.

UNKLE - Restless (Fake Blood Remix)
Fake Blood whips up some of the craziest stuff I've ever heard, and this track is completely nuts. It took me awhile before I figured it out, but now I loose the ability to sit still when I hear it.

Cut Copy - Lights & Music (Boys Noize Happy Birthday Mix)
I was planning on having this on the first volume but it never happened, and I'm still not tired of it. It's an awesome touchup of the original, and I feel it adds some of the dynamics I miss in general on the latest Cut Copy.

Lykke Li - I'm Good I'm Gone (Fred Falke Remix)
I was quite excited about this remix and it's always a great feeling when you're expectations are met. Fred Falke adds some beautiful melodic touches to one of Lykke Li's best songs.

Estelle featuring Kanye West - American Boy (Stockholm Syndrome Official Remix)
This track packs a great summer vibe and has infinite potential for becoming a dancefloor hit this year.

Petter - Goda Dagars Magi (Jeansie Blend)
Jeansbjörn blends swedish rapper Petter with Madonna's Holiday, creating an upbeat and funny vibe, which you should be able to dance drunkenly to.

Cazals - Somebody Somewhere (Lifelike Remix)
Another one of his magical touchups, I have to see this guy play sometime.

Trip - Who's That (Jack Beats Remix)
If I'm not mistaken Plus One is 50% of Jack Beats and largely responsible for the insane dubbed out twist this track takes.

Boys Noize - Oh! (A-Trak Remix)
Very weird but insanely cool. Boys Noize + A-Trak = nuff said.

Teyana Taylor - Google Me (Konjoined Remix)
Another one those summervibe tracks. The way this 16 year old sounds over the Konjoined remix is soooo much better than the original.

Cole Medina - Red Hot / Tron Scott's Freaks in Space - Prog Rocks And Moon Jocks
I yanked this puppy out from Todd Terjes Resident Advisor podcast, and have pretty much been unable to find out anything about it. The cutout spans over two or three tracks, and I'm confused as to what's what, but those lyrics sound so damn tight over that beat I couldn't help myself putting the whole thing on.

wow, this looks like a really good tracklist, but i don't seem to be able to get zshare to give me the file. whenever i click the link to begin the download ("Click here to start your download", after waiting the 20 or so secs it asks you to), it seems like it sends me back to the first page, with the player..

Neil C said...
