MY POPROKS
'The Beatles' Mixtape

image

This is a mix I made for my friend who said they didn’t like the Beatles and I was like no. Some requests included that there be more later stuff and that it not be a copy and paste of the number ones album, which was OK with me but you know within reason.

Perfume Genius is your Queen. Following up my #2 record of 2012, the new album, Too Bright, is due Sept. 23 and you should really realy go see him live.

Panama “Always” (Wave Racer Remix)

I was so deep in the Soundcloud “recommended’ rabbit hole that I’m not even sure how I ended on Sydney producer Wave Racer’s remix of “Always.” But he needs to remix all of the songs. Both the rework and original track are on Panama’s Always EP, out now on Future Classics (Flume, Classixx).

Prayer “Knowing”
