Mixtapes

oh six oh seven

I really struggled to come up with a decent mix this month, I saw Daft Punk in London a week or so ago and they were so good that it kinda ruined music for me, at least for a while. Luckily I got over it, partly with the help of the new Chromeo album. So anyway, here's a mix...

M.A.Y.

I think the Robyn track here is possibly the best song I've ever heard and if loving Erlend Oye is wrong, I don't want to be right. Once more in some cases (well, two)the remix info was just a bit too long to fit in the song title field so look under albums for that.

Whole Lotta Cover (Versions)

OK, so there are two television personalities covers here and one of the tracks is really more of an homage but, y'know, you get what you're given innit.

oh three oh seven

Yeah... so I TRIED to do the one that is a soundtrack to my life but I couldn't get one good enough... It remains an ongoing side project and I suspect someone in late 2009 is going to get very, very lucky. In the meatime here's one I do like, fyi some of the song titles were a bit long so on some tracks remix information can be found in the album field.

IT'S SNOWING OUTSIDE!
