Turntable Kitchen :: December 2010 Mix

You might notice that the December 2010 mix is a little different from our usual mix.  First, a lot of these tracks have been included on prior mixes whereas I normally try to avoid re-using songs from prior mixes.  Second, it is pretty light on the indie rock (our bread and butter).  This isn’t intended to indicate a change in direction around here.  Instead, the December mix consists (with a few exceptions) of songs that were released in 2010, but that didn’t see a physical release and weren’t included as part of a larger album or EP.  Second, I wanted to put together an upbeat, celebratory mix since New Years Eve is only a few days away.  The result is that I put the sad bastard music away (one of my favorite types of music) and ended up with a chillwave and hip-hop heavy mix.  Oh, and it was thrown together kinda quickly, so I hope you’ll forgive me if there are a few rough transitions that I overlooked.  We’ll slow down here for the next couple of days, but we’ll be back in the new year with more great new music and the Turntable Kitchen Top Albums of 2010!

    Hey Neil,

    Thanks for the heads up. I’ll be honest – I’m not familiar with the original version of the song, or even the Florence and the Machine cover.


  • dj beat juice

    fuken great page here!

  • Josefine

    @Neil: Even though Florence and the machine didn’t make the original, The xx is still doing a cover of Florence And the Machines version, not Candi Staton’s.

  • and suddenly the puzzle pieces fit together!!! It’s YOU! I LOVE YOUR SITE!! Love the concept too. I’m totally listening to Crystal Castles feat. Robert Smith right now. *xoxo*

  • Tracy- I’m glad you found us (and realized it’s me!). So glad you like the site! xx

  • Dude, this mixtape is the sickest thing I’ve heard in 2010. keep putting out stuff like this and I might just try to find a way to pump this site directly into my eardrums 247.

  • Dj Sloy

    Actually, the version of “You’ve Got the Love” is a remix by The xx, not a cover.
