BEHOLD THE DESTROYER MIX SERIES

Music to score fantastically improbable situations. Soundtracks to perversion. Audio hallucinations. The usual shit. This collaborative project is about mixes filled with new, forgotten or underrated gems and my visual interpretation of them. The music is by a plethora of awesome people who are all gracious enough not to sue me. Collect ‘em all like Pokemon.

10: AQUATIC REVERIE by Blue Sky Black Death
Everyone has dreams of flying. Dreams where you feel free and untethered, soaring through the clouds without a care in the world, looking down at everyone stuck to the earth. Sometimes I have dreams of flying underwater. In these dreams, I hang out deep underwater with cool ass dolphins and wise whales getting into all kinds of adventures. On a good night we fight sharks and squids. Other times we just go down to the ocean floor and chill out with weird bioluminescent creatures while they tell us tales of the old world when people lived underwater. Shoutout to Atlantis.

09: TRILL WAVY by PL△NE✝ DE△✝H
Planet Death specializes in making remixes that transform songs into deformed, scary, funhouse mirror versions of themselves. When he recently warped Aaliyah’s “One In A Million” from a teenage anthem of lust into a horror movie anthem of murderous intent, it was clear that I needed to get dude to do a mix for the site. Anyone who hears Aaliyah and thinks of Texas Chainsaw Massacre is the type of weirdo I want to collaborate with. Download here…

08: COCAINE PETAGRAMS by Lil Sprite
I’ve come to realize, trying to explain chopped and screwed music to people makes you sound like you’re fucking insane. The idea of slowing down music and making it skip on purpose isn’t the easiest thing for heads to imagine. That’s why instead of explaining what the music actually sounds like it’s best to describe the feeling screw gives you. Sometimes you feel like you’re being dragged through a black hole where time and space are being warped. Other times screw feels like you’re at a dope pool party but you spent the entire affair chillin’ out at the bottom of the pool listening to the DJ do work. My favorite explanation of screw is imagining that its the result of the wildest Oujia board session while listening to trap rap. As you summon evil spirits and your evil dead grandma that never liked you that much, the music slows and warps. Maybe a lil storm builds on some The Craft shit and the tape repeats phrases—evil spirits love communicating through edits, everyone’s a fucking DJ these days. Download here


07: RELEASE THE BEASTS by SICKSENTZ
When you hear this mix you’ll realize it’s way beyond normal assault and battery joints—those are in there too, but this is on some next level super villain cyber terrorist shit. Like when you go to jail for making a giant flying shark and releasing it on the city for a 50 billion dollar ransom. That’s what this jam is all about. There’s a section of kinda  chill joints at the beginning for when you’re in the lab trying to figure out the DNA sequence to make sharks fly and gigantic, but that quickly morphs into a heavy cybercrunk section for the point when it’s just mothers yelling “why! why!” as a giant flying shark eats their baby.

06: FLESH WORKS by MOTHER HUBBARD
When you spend a good amount of your time trolling the internet for weird shit you end up with information lodged in your brain you can’t unknow. Ie: once you know about men having affairs with dolphins, you’ll never not know that. You’re gonna take that knowledge to the grave. Similarly, once you hear that Osama Bin Laden was infatuated with Whitney Houston you can’t not picture them on the world’s most awkward date ever. Osama—cleaned up, but still rocking the wizard beard—straight from the caves of Afghanistan and The Bodyguard era Whitney Houston giving so much dignified class and diva attitude. Picture them making small talk at the fucking Olive Garden over “never ending” breadsticks, Whitney the paragon of popculture for two decades hanging out with a dude who literally lived under a rock. Download here…

05: MIDNIGHT SUSHI by RX
Everyday I look in my inbox and see wild invites to shit like SpotifyGoogle+ and horrible parties with horrible DJs. I appreciate heads looking out for me on the technological tip and on the “ladies-get-in free-before 11″ tip but, the real question is, who’s holding invites to the orgies y’all? Ever since a dude saw Eyes Wide Shut as an impressionable youth, a personal goal has been to get in on some extra rich, masonic orgy rituals like Tom Cruise. Wild out with a cloak, a phantom of the opera mask and tons of real high class prostitutes and ladies who enjoy a liberated sense of sexual stewardship. Maybe offer some sacrifices up to Dionysus or Thoth. Download here…

SEX CRIMES 3084
In 1985, a rather unremarkable adult movie was released titled Sex Crimes 2084 — it was vaguely based on George Orwell’s 1984. While the book was about a state controlling its citizens through extreme measures and the nature of personal freedom — the movie was about people fucking. It wasn’t about people fucking in the future though, or people fucking in space, or people fucking aliens or robots or anything exciting you’d imagine an adult movie with 2084 in the title would have. This is a failure of imagination. Download here…

03: LAMBORGHINI LOAFERS
The year is 1984, Chico Avaraldo — the biggest gun runner in Miami — has double crossed you for the last time. He’s sent his goons to rub you out and kidnap your girlfriend to sell into white slavery. They shot you in the back and torched your modest, albeit palatial estate. Left you for dead. They shoulda finished the job. First mistake. Download here…




02:
WELCOME TO BASED WORLD
Do you like surrealist, abstract and idiosyncratic rap like Kool Keith, Cam’ron, Lil Wayne? Do you enjoy unexpected sampling choices? Do you fancy yourself a fan of positive thinking? Do you appreciate a near Wesley Willis-ian output of songs? If yes, then just skip right ahead to the download link below and get into the work of Lil B because he’s prolly going to be your new favorite rapper. Download here…

WIZARDRY KNOWS NO BOUNDARIES
For awhile now I’ve been wanting to put together this mixtape1 to share with you dear readers. It’s some of the jams that regularly rock my shit on that space disco/italo disco/electro ish. Translated for those of you that don’t spend hours on youtube looking at videos of Italian dance shows from the 70s, it’s a bunch of stuff that’s heavy on the synthesizers and space noises, occasionally a lil vocoder or some falsetto thrown in for fun. Basically this is the type of shit I throw on when I turn on my wall of LED lights in my bedroom and want to get real heavy into that Barbarella/10 Forward kinda vibe. Intergalactic chill out, space out, make out, think tank type of joints.  Download here…
