Chocolate Grinder Mix 79
Foscam FI8910W Pan & Tilt IP/Network Camera with Two-Way Audio and Night Vision

This isn’t a mix of music that I enjoy listening to. In fact, with the exception of Charles Bradley and kitty, this is a mix of music that I either have no interest in (Destiny’s Child), am indifferent to (Bibio), might like if I put more effort in (Mikal Cronin), or flat-out don’t enjoy listening to (Tegan and Sara). But rather than stringing these songs together in some sort of masochistic mix, I decided to heavily edit them instead, looping, time-stretching/-compressing, modulating, rearranging, pitch-shifting, and eccojamming/plunderphonic-ing/chopping+screwing to the point where Vampire Weekend’s “Hudson” becomes a moody electronic track, Bibio’s “Mirroring All” turns into an ambient piece, Beach Fossils’ “Sleep Apnea” is deconstructed into a glitchy jam, and the entirety of Foxygen’s We Are the 21st Century Ambassadors of Peace & Magic is reduced to less than three minutes.
