DoDecaDance, or; YO2012O

OKAY, here it is.  the mix that nearly killed me, before i killed it.  Twenty-Twelve, in 80-minute dance party mix-up mash-up form.  i'd been equivocating between the above (kinda dumb) titles and then I remembered that it should just be called...

[i don't know about y'self, but] I'm Feeling 2012

i srsly agonized over this one, both before and after its very successful debut on new years eve.  upshot being a) i have zero psychic space/distance from it at this point however b) i think it's a darn good one. especially after being initially dubious about 2012 having really brought the goods (still feels a bit anemic on the mega-pop tip, but better than xpected, partly thanks to late-ish inclusions from bruno mars and katy perry, though not rihanna..)

felt a bit hip-hop dominated at times, and in initial drafts a bit uncomfortably profanity/misogyny-heavy (i slimmed back on that a bit, cutting out "bandz a make her dance" [a.k.a. "stripper-jamz a make him uncomfortable]" – and downgrading "amen" to instrumental form; also happily happened to use clean versions of "two reasons" and "young wild and free" which i emphatically prefer to the explicit versions anyway.  and danny brown's "grownup" is apparently only available in sorta-silly censored form? ha!)  still gets pretty narsty at times though.  (that angel haze, my my!)

so many moments i love on here, several of which already exist as long-form mash-ups ("thinking about daphni," "call me somebody (walter carly willyouse remaybe?)" – can't believe that one hasn't already been done.)  i need to do a longform edit of "i'm skanking" vs "inspector norse," already two of the most happy-making songs of the year on their own, which together achieve truly ludicrous levels of uplift.  [other mashtitles: "Locked out of Harlem," "2 Reasons to Topologize," "Plush Flutes (Pflutshtes)," "Taylor Swift vs. the indie records that are much cooler than hers," "JBiebs+Fiona4vr"]

h/ts in order to various year end lists, notably spin (for introducing me to/reminding me about katy, future, santigold, dj rashad, and especially mystikal!) and, for electronic stuff, resident advisor (bauer, s-type, pearson sound) and xlr8r (dubbel dutch, girl unit, and the excellent "vibrate" by dj slink which i didn't actually get to include.)  also to matt shuman for making me (re)listen to phedré.

oh, by the way...you might notice that there's rather a lot of hot chip on this mix.  ten songs in fact – every single track on in our heads (sometimes in remixed/demo form) except for one, "ends of the earth," which is on this sister mix instead... i decided not to duplicate anything from social smattering, which meant, sadly, leaving off le1f's "wut" and david byrne+st. vincent's "the one who broke your heart" – otherwise, nothing i was too sad about dropping, and allowed for some interesting alternate choices by artists represented there (d'eon, daphni, lindsy.)

so yeah.  enjoy!  share!  don't deny your heart!  put your hands together!  fuck up the fun!  and, call me...maybe?

you only 2012 once!  (or do you...)
