2000s mixburst #4: the neptunes

the obvious counterpart to yesterday's timbaland mix. i've gotta say, this oeuvre doesn't stack up quite as well... the similarities across the neptunes' productions grow even more pronounced when placed side by side, and though it does make for some easy mixing (these were all within an easy 15 bpm of each other), it doesn't really magnify the excitement of the individual tracks the way the timbo mix did... still, some definite bangers here. (mildly unorthodox: i had to sneak in diplo's delicious b-more flavored remix of "hollaback girl" at the end to break up the mid-tempo chunky-funk monotony.)
