This mix came out of the idea that I really disliked Jim Jarmusch's 'Coffee and Cigarettes for two reasons. One, it would've been way more interesting if say, Tom Waits and Iggy Pop had an ACTUAL conversation, instead of reading lines and playing parts. Two, I really wish I could watch a dialogue between Chuck D. and Nick Cave, the musician, not the artist. But a conversation between Chuck D. and Nick Cave, the musician, would be pretty damn entertaining I think. Then hopefully after that conversation, they'd record an epic album together of effed up duets. And that's where this mix comes in. I've been haunted for years by the idea of putting Nick Cave over some Public Enemy. From that starting point, it veered off into a mix of rap and mid-nineties hardcore. The best hardcore. Anyway, this mix has some definite flaws, volume is out of whack at times and there's compression issues. But I'm seeing at least an 13% improvement over past mixes. Maybe not.
