Here comes the 2

Second mix is up. This time I went for something a lot more low key, bpms from 77-102 or something. It probably got a bit too eclectic, but there’s bound to be something likable. If there’s a downtempo afficianado around, see how many she can name. For all other purposes, I’m calling this one my downtempo pleaser.

Not many notes on this one, I guess. Like I said, a bit too eclectic, but it was sitting there, begging to be done. The major point I need to make is that Hooverphonic’s No More Sweet Music and Block 16’s Slow Hot Wind have exactly the same melody. I mean, it could have easily been ripped. Block 16 did it first, from a quick look. Seriously, skip over the rest if you have to, but listen to that. Oh, and despite the fact that every track in the mix has a special place in my heart, my personal favorite that I’m feeling right now is the Young Folks cover. Also, I don’t know how I got two STS9 tracks in there, but don’t let that fool you. Lastly, I normalized the audio special for Lincoln.
