Here’s a 90 minute tape I made on 10/24/11 that I never got around to posting on the blog or even the tracklist… but has gotten quite a lot of play on my soundcloud. I started thinking about this mix while reviewing all the mixtapes I’ve made for people that are long gone. I dubbed the next tape I made for this person, but not sure I dubbed this for myself especially since I believe there are some bonus songs I added in. Good thing I re-recorded it so he could listen to it at work! I’ve always loved this mix especially since a lot of love went into it (what a wonder being smitten can do!). I’d get a lot of requests for where to download/purchase this mix at my last two public workplaces (who wants to help with business cards?!). Always found myself wanting to listen to this mix on rainy days. Titled in German (see Ohne TitelWeltschmerz & Dunkelheit mixes, obviously a recurring theme).

Features Hot Guts Demo, rare starter track by The Eternal Scream, Paul Nova, Pavilion 7B, This Heat, The Voyagers’ “Distant Planet” (heart swelling!),  one of my favorite Dead Can Dance songs, etc. This was a mix fine tailored for the recipient, especially with the secret Hare Krishna inspired Slits song from the Peels Sessions following “Earthbeat” which I myself cropped long ago. I could go on and on… As usual, a mix of rare and well known goodies, check the tracklist below.

As mentioned in the last post, I’ve been getting asked for cassette copies of my mixtapes. If you’d like a copy of this tape, I’ll try to hunt down the original and dub it or start over from scratch. Or if you’d like dubs of any of  of the mixtapes I’ve made over the years, shoot me an email!

Also if you’re in NYC tonight (July 31) I’ll be DJing with Christian Count (Cult of Youth) at Nothing Changes  (Home Sweet Home) for Lost Tribe & Anasazi live! Details here.
