Mix CD Challenge
   ~ Inspired by chip's reply in the "What are you listening to?" topic.

Alright, here's the game. Make a playlist mix and post it here. List its name and genre along with the list of songs. I'll keep an organized list here in this first post with links to your individual replies. Your mix should generally be 8 to 20 songs, but this isn't a rule.

So show off your creativity and musical library! Lets see some of that talent!

The List:
AuthorMix NameGenreLengthLink
chipTamed ADDMixed78 minLink
deckkeeper-Indie-ish43 minLink

Note:
I might come up with some kind of voting/ranking system, but that'll be for later.
I'm also still working on the formatting.

i edited all the tracks by hand to ensure excellent timing/flow between each track..  I wanted to take as many genres as possible and squash them together, and make them flow audibly from one section to the next.. i'm very pleased with the result, a mix cd i wouldnt get tired of! :)

I'll post a torrent later!

Name:(none yet)
Genre:Techno / Post-Rock / Indie
Length:~43 minutes

01 - The Knife - Like a Pen (6:12)
02 - Ellen Allien & Apparat - Way Out (3:43)
03 - Mogwai - Hunted by a Freak (4:15)
04 - Liars - The Other Side of Mt. Heart Attack (4:45)
05 - The Postal Service - Natural Anthem (5:07)
06 - Band of Horses - Wicked Gil (2:57)
07 - Pavement - Cream of Gold (3:47)
08 - Modest Mouse - Heart Cooks Brain (4:04)
09 - Spoon - The Beast and the Dragon, Adored (4:18)
10 - Wolf Parade - I'll Believe in Anything (4:36)

I tried to get songs that would flow together well with a little editing. I also tried to include my current favorite songs (Like a Pen, Way Out, and I'll Believe in Anything) with some older favorites and some simply good songs. This is pretty short, but...yeah. Oh well. Its nice to listen to, so I switch to it every once in a while. I'll post some other mixes/playlists later.

Yeah, that could be pretty cool.

Also, could anyone recommend some good techno/electronic albums? I need some more. I don't care what type, and foreign is fine.

check out the "Euphoria" mixes..  I think they are great (classic, or limited edition should be easy to find)..
