A set of bangers
Its Friday evening, and if you're anything like me and live on the east coast its probably around the time that you're getting home from work, and maybe you're thinking about making some dinner, maybe you're considering whether or not you're going to go out tonight...
Well, here's an amazing mixtape for you to put on and totally freak out to, courtesey of France's Dopplebanger, a longtime contender for the best mashups around. Dopplebanger is part of the Paris-based band Cosmodrome, who produced the Avenue D track on MFR Vol. 1. Well, Cosmodrome's new album will be out soon on Gooom (home to, among others, robot favorites M83)... well, the label asked Dopplebanger to put together a mix for them, which uses Gooom-artist instrumentals and dope-ass hip-hop a capellas that are so expertly put together, they all sound completely natural.
Oh, and it is, as the artist's name may suggest, bangin'
