Instead of bitching about how you got me working - working day 'n night, I thought I'd share some of the mixes and mixtapes I've got on my headphones while I'm thrashing deadlines.
Punishing beats. Real heavy stuff. Perfect for late night adrenaline shots, even later deadlines or slowly fucking yourself up with a sweat-soaked run out in the summer heat. Oh, and it's got a dubstep remix of Britney Spears. And it's good, too.

Wanna know what I'm working on right now? There's a clue in this picture. (by The Cobra Snake) I'm working on invites to a party in Brussels soon. Can't tell you where or when. You won't believe who's flying over to play. Ho hum.
Unrelated but in my headphones nonetheless: another dubstepper by Benga, live at Five Days Off in Ghent, Belgium. (via B-log)
Some old skool breakbeats on this one. Nineties soul breaks rule.
Also slowly making his way back into my headphones: Lil' Wayne with "Tear Drop Tune 2"
How many metaphors does Wayne have that involve 'fire', 'fireman' and 'heat'? Let's just say: a lot. Wayne combines the flows that made him a legend with some real experimental tracks. Has anyone noticed his rock stuff is getting dangerously close to Tricky's "Pre-Millenium Tension" period? The jury is till out on this one (disco? really?), but I do admire his guts & gusto to keep the crowd guessing.
Ok, last one for tonight:
96 classics and hard-to-finds all rolled up in one big toke of a mix. (via The Fader)
