“Sun of a Gun”
When I was growing up, a mixtape usually meant that there was a cassette that was made by one of your friends with a bunch of random songs. As a hip-hop head, it turned into themed tapes made by some of the world’s best DJs (see: DJ Q-bert’s “Demolition Pumpkin Squeeze Musik,” Babu’s “Comprehension” or Rob Swift’s “Soulful Fruit” for reference) – an unrelenting hodge podge of scratching, slick tunes, and other extras too lengthy to list. Over time, the concept of mixtapes have taken on a new connotations from a grouping of tracks that would essentially be covers or left overs that wouldn’t have fit on any other record.
Appreciate that, holmes!
