This upload was 6th in the #electro-swing chart and 28th in the #dark chart.

I recorded this electro-swing, funky house, space disco, and trippy EDM mix for the DC Bike Party's Superhero Sprint on May 13, 2015. This mix depicts the narrative arc of a superhero epic, informed by Joseph Campbell's elucidation of the universal hero myth.

It starts out jovial, with electro-swing recalling the proto-hero's state of ignorant bliss enabling a thirst for adventure (until 7:00), before calling our heroes from their mundane lives into realms of supernatural wonder & discovery with some trippy space house (until 38:00). The mix then slides into dramatic, darker, then eery & sinister tracks (until 1:14:00) to convey the urgency & danger pervading a hero's quest. A melancholic denouement precedes some goofy tracks insinuating a suitably spectacular party after defeating the latest diabolical plot concocted by the CIA to destroy the world and/or enslave humanity.
