Dan Deacon’s Mashup Wishbook

December 4, 2012
By

Monday afternoon, Dan Deacon put a mashup mixtape Wishbook Vol. 1 on his Soundcloud page.


He mixes a dizzying number of artists together, as documented in something like a bibliographic algorithm:

“Wish Book Volume 1 was made with music made by (in order of appearance): grimes+psy+beach house+skrillex+diplo+nicky da b+dirty projectors+lil wayne+nicki minaj+oneohtrix point never+tune yards+animal collective+rod stewart+the strokes+wiz khalifa+beyoncé+lcd sound system+death grips+ludacris+rihanna+the beatles+roy orbison+silver apples+katy perry+69 boyz+gary glitter+james brown+lmafo+black dice+the ronettes+r. kelly+black eyed peas+lenny kravitz+the misfits+2 chains+daftpunk+led zeppelin+the notorious b.i.g.+devo+lightning bolt+unknown artist recorded in jaipur, india+marvin gaye+radiohead+rage against the machine+salt n peppa+brian eno+madonna.”

The skittery, fun songs, seem like the result of  endless hours on a tour bus. But whenever he indulged in these frenetic mixes, they make a nice holiday gift to his fans.
