Over a year since my last substantial post? Fuck it, whatever! Here’s a short mix for you. It’s relatively high energy and has some easily recognizable content, and at around 25 minutes long it’s excellent for a short workout—when you hear the last track, start your warm-down walk or cool-down stretching, and when the music’s over you’re done!
- Röyksopp - What Else Is There? (trentemøller remix)
- Adele - Rolling in the Deep (The Lost Boys remix)
- MSTRKRFT - The Looks
- Alex Gopher - Virages (Light Year remix)
- Staygold - Video Kick Snare (Dada Life remix)
- Foster the People - Pumped Up Kicks (Grouplove & Captain Cuts remix)
There you go. Not a lot of fancy mixing—and none at all on the last cut, even—but them’s some nice tracks, right there, is what them is.

After much procrastination, I finally sorted out some issues vis-a-vis various pieces of software and got a new mix recorded last night. It’s not what I had originally planned, and it gets off to a shaky start, but there are some pretty dope cuts on this and I think you’ll like it.
The track list I originally planned got trampled on by a couple of small dogs. True story. I was keeping the volume a little lower than usual out of courtesy to my neighbors (the hour, she was late), and our two terrier chihuahuas were feeling anxious. Every time they ran into or out of the room, the tags on their collars jingled, I lost be ability to hear the hi-hats and handclaps in the music, and the beat matching went right out the window.
After two false starts, I just scrapped my playlist and threw this together to give my frustration level a more appropriate soundtrack. Download the mixed set here, then go get the individual tracks you like below.
