Hard Candy favorites Labyrinth Ear are the latest act we have tapped to create a mixtape exclusively for our series. It is our pleasure to present to you the ‘Magnolia‘ mixtape that expertly fuses together some of the band’s favorite tracks of all time and some newer stuff that they are currently listening to. They’ve got everything in there from The Carpenters to Sonic Youth and M83… Say what?! Somehow this eclectic mix really works!
Labyrinth Ear had this to say about creating the mixtape…
“This mixtape is a culmination of everything we’ve been listening to currently. It’s a mixture of different genres and eras and styles, but I think somehow the mixture shares some similar qualities in the overall feel of the music. There’s some 90s hip hop, some classical, some chamber pop, some bangra, overall it’s a good representation of both of our tastes combined. We hope that you enjoy the mix as much as we did making it, and find it entertaining“

Offer Nissim is quite the live DJ, if he isn’t dancing along to the music he’s lip syncing it and delivering the tracks straight into his audience’s eyes like you wouldn’t believe. Offer serves it up somethin’ fierce might I tell you. The Israeli DJ/producer/remixer uploaded a recording of his DJ set from when he opened up for Madonna‘s MDNA tour. I thought some of you would enjoy this mix tape!
If you’ve never seen Offer live, you just must!
What do you think of the set?
Zimmer‘s January mixtape ‘Brighter Days’ is an uplifting hour-long mix, exactly what is needed on this cold wintry day in NYC. We’ll get a full tracklist on Wednesday, but there’s a killer mix of Jennifer Lopez‘s ‘Play,’ swiftly followed by an excellent take on Suzanne Vega’s ‘Tom’s Diner‘ kicking things off. If that doesn’t get you excited, I’m not sure what will!
