Mixtape series helps you pretend you're up north
Those of us in Toronto who don’t have cottages hate hearing stories about our friends chilling out on the dock drinking beer. However, if you’re stuck in the city and envious of those who’ve escaped, the guys over at the Dmoney camp have put together a series of mixtapes to help you pretend your backyard is a few hundred km north.
Mixed by Dougie Boom, the Cottage Country mix series takes the classic rock radio station format as inspiration, and twists it up into something a lot more interesting. Amidst the fake station IDs, mock requests, and make-believe contests, the real fun part is the actual music. Dougie Boom mixes up all the golden oldies using hip-hop and house techniques, proving that no song is un-mixable. They’re not too heavy on obscurities, but you’re still guaranteed to discover at least a few songs you’ve never heard.
To celebrate the 7th release in the series, they’re throwing a party at Unlovable, Friday August 6.
