Another one of my hobbies is ‘listening to mixes’.
A Mix! A bunch of tracks/samples glued together to form a homogenous substance. Or something like that. There are Megamixes, mashups, remixes.
A remixer I have been following is Alex Ivens, or FutureRecords. On his site you can find some great mixes.
On of my favourites is his ‘Cafe 80s’ megamix-serie. Lots of tracks, tunes, samples and other sounds from the 80s in an hourlong mix. Nice to hear the tunes of BTTF, Alf and Happy days zoom by, spiced up with U2 and Sting (among othrs).
But watch out, there are some dutch samples in it too.
Look at the playlist here.
