He calls it “The Longest Mixtape” and I certainly don’t doubt that.
Electro madman Caribou, in town VERY SOON for Laneway Festival, dropped a 1000 track mixtape overnight. I know what I’m listening to for the next few days.
Given it’s hefty length, we don’t have a full tracklist for you, so you either need to manually click through it on YouTube, or just listen to it – it’s Caribou, it’s 100% guaranteed to be good. It’ll be good. From what we can see straight up, there’s a healthy blend of hip hop, electronic and more, including J Dilla, Kanye West, Usher, Todd Terry and Sly & The Family Stone.
Caribou, aka Dan Snaith, left this note accompanying the mix:
NOTE: PLEASE LISTEN TO THIS PLAYLIST ON SHUFFLE.
The last few years of my life have been incredible, thanks in large part to all of you – so I’ve been thinking of how to say thank you.
As you can imagine, music has been a central love of my life since I was a teenager and over the years I’ve been introduced to a lot that has stayed with me. I’ve collected the majority of that music here – and I thought sharing it with you seemed like one way I could say thanks.
I’m sure some things are under-represented or over-represented, but roughly speaking this is a musical history of my life. Of course a lot of this music has come to me through my friends – thank you to Koushik, Kieran, Jeremy, Gary, Brandon, Jason, Sam, Ketan, Ryan, Toby and many others…
Also, please share music with me that you think I would like but is not included here, in the hope this becomes a dialogue rather than a monologue.
I suggest you listen to this on shuffle as I made no attempt to sequence these tracks – I just entered them as I browsed along the shelves in my record collection. If you see dead links or duplicate songs please tweet me @caribouband.
I hope you find something to enjoy here. Thanks,
