DJ Shadow, Amon Tobin, Bill Hicks, Savath & Savalas, Aim and more.
Fun-loving because it blends pop tunes and comedy clips with sample-based downtempo electronica and IDM. Beck, X Ambassadors, Fun Lovin' Criminals, The Bloodhound Gang and Bill Hicks all make a featured appearance.
Criminal because- let's face it, Aphex Twin mixed with the Sopranos theme song is probably not gonna win me any friends in the Richard James fan club. Drastically changing the tempos of Amon Tobin and Sinewave tracks or adding a sample over Odd Nosdam could be seen as similarly offensive transgressions.
To those fans I would say this: Don't think of it as painting over the Mona Lisa- it's more like scanning her into Photoshop and putting her into a collage. The original still exists out there, and I'm not even trying to showcase it. I'm just using it in the collage.
Warning: this mix contains language that may offend some listeners and overtly advocates for drug use.
