A few years ago, the fantastically great band Mae Shi launched a tour by playing a show in LA where they invited everyone to bring them mix CDs in exchange for one of their own. I made them a CD and I’m pretty sure it was great. They were stoked that I put the Trilambs on it.
Entitled Old Skool Beats, this 49 track compilation encompasses pretty much everything in the world that rules. 3 seconds or thereabouts from great songs, this mix has it all. Clips from mainstream hip hop, noise bands, local LA bands and a lot of the Mae Shi’s own music. One track entirely dedicated to Andrew WK. Amazing.
This can totally drive you crazy if you try and listen to it in one shot. I find it works great at parties or in small doses. But a long drive with this would probably be pretty great too.
This must have taken forever to edit together.
