"One man's treasure is everyone else's trash".
Indulge my bullshit for a second: yes, I love techno and ambient as much as the next soundcloud DJ, but I also grew up listening to punk, radio rock and every other kind of weirdness I could access via Limewire. I don't really listen to mixes regularly and personally find the whole approach as a dominant way of ingesting music slightly strange. The last mix I listened to more than once was Molly Water's Sanpo Disco one. I refuse to classify these tracks as 'guilty pleasures'. They are just songs that I genuinely enjoy and listen to regularly without any trace of irony. I would have also included 'Klepto Rackz', but I feel that this would be pushing it and people would maybe not believe me (although I do encourage you listen to it). If anyone is interested in a NWOBH or Memphis rap mix, I'd be more than happy to chop you out those as well.
Move to trash and empty the recycle bin on this one.
