WARMER MIXTAPES #1322 | by Benjamin Etchells (Karaoke For Beginners, White Russians, The Lancaster Bombers, The Candys) of The Vultures

1. Serge Gainsbourg | Cannabis (Cannabis Original Motion Picture Soundtrack)
This guy is mint, I named my cat after him. The song was written for a film released in 1970. The film was awful.

2. The Irish Rovers | Drunken Sailor (Sea Shanty from the 19th Century Cover)
This was the 1st song I ever learned to play when I was 7 years old. The version on Spotify is by The Irish Rovers and the lyrics are wrong. Not sure if anyone really knows what the lyrics are. The sailors made them up on the spot based mainly on stupid ways of waking up drunken comrades.

3. Leonard Cohen | The Partisan (Emmanuel D'Astier De La Vigerie and Anna Marly's 'La Complainte Du Partisan' Cover)
This is a song about the French Resistance in World War II. Cohen didn't write it, it was written in London in 1942 by two French girls who escaped the Nazis.

4. David Croft And Roy Moore | London Calling ('Allo 'Allo Original Motion Picture Soundtrack)
British Sitcom Theme Song from the early 80's. This used to be my favourite TV show when I was a kid an I still find the early shows funny (only when I'm drunk though).

5. Scott Walker | On Your Own Again 
From Scott 4, my favourite Scott Walker album. I would suggest avoiding his later stuff because it's unlistenable. But Scott 2 and Scott 4 are classics.



6. Jacques Brel | Jacky
I used to think Scott Walker wrote this track. What a plum. Brel is God!

7. The Fall | Blindness
This track is on the album Fall Heads Roll, featuring the Musical rantings of Mark E. Smith.

8. The Daniel Caine Orchestra | Buck Rogers In The 25th Century (Buck Rogers In The 25th Century Theme)
Star Wars on crack.

9. Sonic Youth | Superstar (Delaney & Bonnie & Friends' 'Groupie (Superstar)' ‎ Cover)
Cover of Delaney & Bonnie & Friends classic, which reminds me of being a teenager. There are some dark lyrics going on in this.

10. Joy Division | Dead Souls
My favourite Joy Division song. The first time I heard it I played it on repeat for five hours.

WARMER MIXTAPES #1321 | by James Brown of Pulled Apart By Horses

1. Radiohead | Paranoid Android
First track I heard from OK Computer when it was getting played on BBC Radio 1 before the record was released. This kind of changed everything about Music for me as a young child.

2. Jeff Buckley | Grace
I saw a video for this on MTV at my Grandma's house when I was super young and she was baby sitting me. I fell in love with the song. I grew up slowly and I could never remember the name of the artist or the title of the track. Then at 18 years of age I moved to Leeds to study at University and a friend played the track at a house party and I had a moment which I will never ever forget.

3. The Jesus Lizard | Then Comes Dudley
My friend I used to get super stoned with at College used to play me this in his bedroom a lot and this track was my key into the world of Underground Punk and Rock.

4. The Blood Brothers | Set Fire To The Face On Fire
Tom, our singer, played this to me before we started PABH and I fell in love with them instantly. Thanks, Tom! It's a massive influence on our early work.

5. Ben Folds | Effington
Crazy song with crazy lyrics. I don't remember when or how I first heard it, but this song makes me smile.



6. Black Sabbath | Paranoid
First heard this on a Kerrang! Magazine compilation when I was about 11 years old. Me and my School friend listened to it 24/7 and even covered the song with our own lyrics in a School Music project.

7. Scott Walker | On Your Own Again
Very moving song which I listen to on tour quite a bit when it's getting long and hard. Discovered this from the Radiohead documentary Meeting People Is Easy.

8. Biffy Clyro | Glitter And Trauma
First Biffy song I ever heard and I literally have no idea how I came across it. This song gave me faith in Guitar Music when things weren't looking great for it in the UK.

9. AC/DC | Back In Black
First AC/DC song I ever heard and still my favourite by far. It's just as thrilling for me as it was the first time I heard it when my cool as fuck Uncle played me it from his massive Rock vinyl collection.

10. Marilyn Manson | Cake And Sodomy
Again, this is the first track I ever heard by MM and, again, it was my wonderful Uncle that played me it. It's fucking incredible what Marilyn Manson got away with at the time and this song title kind of says it all. I love this song so much.

WARMER MIXTAPES #1320 | by Simen Schikulski (Aristillus) and Uno Møller (Twin Pines Mall) of Team Me

SIDE A | by Simen Schikulski

1. Joyce Manor | Christmas Card
Arrived at work after a long weekend of drinking, visited Pitchfork’s website for some New Music and found this album cover saying Never Hungover Again. Pushed play and heard this awesome Monday morning tune.

2. Otis Redding | (Sittin' On) The Dock Of The Bay
We played in Switzerland this summer and ended up pretty drunk, skinny dipping at a nudist beach. Some Swiss girl gave us a bottle of wine at the middle of the night, and on her Facebook she had this song. Now my soundtrack of that day. Fun fact: Otis Redding wrote this song days before his own death (plane crash).

3. Cymbals Eat Guitars | Chambers
The lead singer from the Norwegian band Ludvig Moon told me I sounded like the vocalist from Cymbals Eat Guitars. I hadn't heard about them, so I checked them out, and this song is fantastic. Thanks, Anders!

4. Braid | Many Enemies
Started listening to Braid a few years ago, and they haven’t released anything in 16 years. Then suddenly the album No Coast was released, featuring this song. What a comeback!

5. Erik Enocksson | The Joy Of D.H. Lawrence (Farväl Falkenberg Original Motion Picture Soundtrack)
This guy made the soundtrack for the Swedish movie Farväl Falkenberg, and the entire soundtrack is just perfect with the small town melancholy feeling.

6. American Football | Never Meant
American Football released only one album, back in 1999. And this year they released a Deluxe Edition of the album. This song is probably one of my favorite 90s American Emo songs from that period. Perfect guitar arrangements!

7. Future Islands | Seasons (Waiting On You) (Live At Late Show With David Letterman)
It doesn’t matter if you like this song or not, his moves makes up for it anyway.

8. Kråkesølv | Husk At Livet Går Fort
Norwegian Indie/Emo band. Totally awesome.

9. Hurula | Stockholm Brinner
Swedish Punk. Stockholm Brinner means Stockholm Is Burning. So now you know that! Members from Masshysteri!

10. The Hotelier | An Introduction To The Album
Song title says it all, an amazing introduction to an album.


SIDE B | by Uno Møller

1. The Smashing Pumpkins | Porcelina Of The Vast Oceans
It’s almost impossible to pick ONE song as my favorite song ever. It’s almost equally imposible for me to pick my favorite Pumpkins song. That said, I think I’ll always give the same answer to that question. Mellon Collie And The Infinite Sadness and the song Porcelina... changed my life back in 1995/96. It opened the World of Music for me. Not just Music, but the Magic in Music and how you can create your own world within the concept of Music and Sounds. I love that record so much that I even wrote a story for a School test when I was 16 or something, based on the cover art and the names of the songs. I also remember writing a song for my first band, that was a complete rip-off of Porcelina. I just wanted to do that kind of Music. I was completely lost in that album. I don’t listen to the album as much now as I did then, but when I do, I don’t listen to anything else for a week or two. It’s my favorite album ever.

2. Beck | Debra
This song is from Beck’s Midnite Vultures album. I remember the day I really really found my love for Beck. I liked Beck before that day, but that’s when he became one of my favorites. We were drinking the night before and I woke up around 5 or 6 in the morning, still drunk. A friend of mine, Vegard, and I planned to walk down to the town centre and get some food. Although nothing had opened yet, we still thought it was a great idea. Then we put Midnite Vultures on and fell asleep again. I woke up again to the last song Debra, and thought it was the greatest song I’d ever heard. And from then on I was one of the World's biggest Beck fans. Still am.

3. Failure | Another Space Song 
I discovered Failure, as many others I suppose, through a Depeche Mode tribute album. They did a great version of Enjoy The Silence. I started looking for Failure records and found their second album Magnified and listened to it at the store. I liked a couple of songs and the bass-sound on the last song was awesome. So, I bought it, I don’t think I listened to it very much before about a year after that. Then I really got into it, and wanted to get all their records. When I got their last album Fantastic Planet (my other favorite album ever), I knew I had found my new favorite band. I talked to people about Failure, but NO ONE had ever heard of them. But I loved the band! Then I found out, of course, that they had broken up the band about one year before I got into it. Failure has been one of my absolute favorite bands since then, and I’ve loved every band/project the three members have done after. And then, as of 2014, Failure are back together, and better than ever!! In the same way as Mellon Collie, I can’t really pick one song, because it’s the whole album that is important. But Another Space Song kind of sums up the feeling of the album and the band.

4. Year Of The Rabbit | Strange Eyes 
Year Of The Rabbit is the next band Ken Andrews of Failure did, apart from his solo project ON. I remember falling in Love with the album right away. It’s simply an awesome record! It has such a massive sound, and big guitars and big drums and big bass-sound. And it has the great Ken Andrews melodies and chord progressions, which are always a bit outside the box. The song Strange Eyes in particular has a great unexpected turn in the melody in the chorus. It’s amazing! The band only lasted that one record, 'cause their label just suddenly didn’t exist anymore.

5. ’68 | Track 1 R
’68 is Josh Scogin of The Chariot’s new band. They started in November 2013 or something. The ’68 record is a bit different from The Chariot, but still got Josh’s fantastic voice and the same energy. It’s a quite experimental record, in terms of production and arrangements. There’s a lot of great tracks on there! This first one is simply quite awesome, and is one of my favorite songs right now! Just check out the record!

6. Silverchair | If You Keep Losing Sleep 
A great, weird track off Silverchair’s last album, Young Modern. It was written and already played as a bit different live version in Daniel Johns and Paul Mac’s one off band The Dissociatives. Silverchair has always been one of my favorite bands, and Daniel Johns - one of my favorite songwriters. This track and this album has amazing vocal harmonies and is mix between Old School simple songwriting and more Experimental arrangements here and there. One of my favorite Silverchair songs!

7. Green Day | Basket Case
This is the song and record (Dookie) that made me wanna play Music, and guitar in my own band. I remember a friend of mine and I pretending to play guitar to the song, jumping up and down and be complete idiots. This was when I started listening to Music in a different way than before. So, in a way, if I hadn’t heard Basket Case at that exact time and place, I would probably have been an unsuccessful football player instead.

8. Ryan Adams | Political Scientist 
Ryan Adams is one of my absolute favorites. I remember working my way into his Music through the Demolition album that we had in the combined junk food place/CD store I worked in at the time. Then I forced myself to like whiskey while listening to his Gold album in the dark one Christmas. Then the first Love Is Hell EP came, and that’s when I really got into the guy. I can’t really tell you which album I like the most, 'cause there’s one for every occasion really. Cold Roses for those Spring/Summer Jack ’n’ Cokes, Jacksonville City Nights for the early Autumn, Gold for the city streets, and so on... But Political Scientist is the first song of Love Is Hell, and that’s where something started for me. I absolutely love the Love Is Hell album/EP’s.

9. Coldplay | Oceans
Yes, I like Coldplay! They have SO many great songs! People might say this and that about Coldplay, but there’s a reason why they are the World's biggest band. This song is from their latest album Ghost Stories, and it is absolutely beautiful.

10. Blinker The Star | The Doctor
I remember I listened to this song for weeks without end when I found it on Jordon Zadorozny’s MySpace in 2005 or 2006 or something. I had forgotten about it after MySpace went out of fashion. But I found it again this year with the help of Jordon. And I just love it!

WARMER MIXTAPES #1319 | by Marquis Gasque [Murder Mark/Mighty Mark]

1. Lupe Fiasco | He Say She Say (feat. Gemini & Sarah Green)
This is one of my favorite songs because I believe that it tells the story of so many young African American men in the USA. It's so relatable and so real. This was before all of Lupe stuff was so political. One of the lines... I want you to be a father. I'm your little boy... And you don't even bother. Like 'Brother' without the R. The rhymes and the topic on that track were so real. I still listen to this song daily. I didn't know my father, but still am proud of the person I am today.

2. King Tutt | Ride Or Die
Classic Baltimore Club track that samples DMX's What's My Name. This track just feels so Baltimore, the original and the club track, and it's funny that, years after DMX's primetime had passed, he was on the BET Music Awards and they said he was really from Baltimore. Crazy, because if you listen to his stuff he has the Baltimore gruff/grittiness. This track is straight Gangster, when I hear it... It just feels like you're about to bust a few caps in someone.

3. Maroon 5 | This Love
This song struck close to heart because I stumbled on to it when I had a crush on a female that was bad, but I knew she wasn't good for me. The this love has taken its toll line was exactly what I would've sang if I could. Plus the song was just musically refreshing. The whole album was dope.

4. Daft Punk | Superheroes
One of the songs that seriously convinced to me to run with the Mighty Mark name full throttle. I was always a huge fan of Comics/Anime and this song gave me the idea to tie it in with my Music. I listened to this song a lot while kicking around the Mighty Mark name change idea. Besides the inspiration the song gave me... The song is a dope song. Shoot, doing this interview may cause me to start playing it again.

5. Eminem | Hailie's Song
Let's make one thing clear. Eminem been singing on songs for a long time before Drake and all these Atlanta rappers, LOL. I'm attracted to real songs with real emotions and I think this is one of Eminem's records that you really get a glimpse into his soul. The chorus is extremely catchy... Sometimes it feels like the World's on my shoulders. I don't have a daughter, but sometimes I feel the same way.


6. Mighty Mark | Cherry Hill & Down Ya Block (feat. Mike-Mike ZOME, DJ K-Spin and Young H.I.D.)
Why put my own song? Because it's not really my song... It's the song of a neighborhood. Cherry Hill & Down Ya Block is the theme song of a lower income area in Baltimore. Cherry Hill Projects... This song gives hope to someone from the bottom and features producers and artists from that neighborhood. Young H.I.D., the artist on the last verse, was shot and killed. R.I.P. Young H.I.D.

7. Kendrick Lamar | Sing About Me, I'm Dying Of Thirst
Will you remember me when I'm gone? That's my main concern. Will you sing about Mighty Mark when he leaves?

8. Ludacris | Southern Hospitality (with Pharrell)
Hardest beat ever when I heard it. Still one of the hardest beats today. Not to mention how Luda flow was crazy. Every time I hear it I get goosebumps and want to start freestyling.

9. Blaqstarr | Sets High
Classic, raw, unfiltered Baltimore Club tune. Blaqstarr... And when this joint came on it was crazy in the club.

10. Kanye West | Never Let Me Down (feat. Jay-Z & J. Ivy)
One of the first times I heard Jay and Ye on a track. The track was motivational especially with the spoken word artist on the track as well. Listen to this song on my way to School during my High School years. Those were hard times when my grandfather passed. This was one of the songs that helped me get thru the days.

WARMER MIXTAPES #1318 | by Laurent Daumail [DJ Cam] of Mawashigeri CPC, DJ Cam Sound System and DJ Cam Quartet

1. Public Enemy | Fight The Power (Do The Right Thing Original Motion Picture Soundtrack)
Strength, Power and Respect. The voice of a nation and the sounds of an era.

2. John Coltrane | My Favorite Things (Mary Martin and Patricia Neway Cover)
Pure Emotion.

3. Gang Starr | Mass Appeal 
New York under the snow with a group of friends.

4. Miles Davis | In a Silent Way/It's About That Time
My first super big remix for such a legendary artist.

5. Lonnie Liston Smith & The Cosmic Echoes | Summer Nights
The most sampled artist for me and such a big source of inspiration. I love him so much.

6. Compton's Most Wanted | Growin' Up In The Hood
My first love for the West Coast and also the motivation to move to LA for 3 years. To feel and the live the vibe of a real G...

7. DJ Cam | Dieu Reconnaîtra Les Siens
Youth and Innocence. My first 12" and also my first big Underground hit. The beginning of my career and 22 amazing years of work and passion and travels around the World.

8. UKG | Tell Me Something Good (Remixed by DJ Screw)
How you can transform a song into something totally different with only 2 turntables and a lot of skills. The creation of a new genre in the 90's. Music under the influence of drugs can be good.

9. Kool & The Gang | Summer Madness 
A very nice and hot night with the woman you loved, no pressure, no stress, only pleasure and warmness. Your bad dreams are gone forever.

10. Soul II Soul | Keep On Movin' (feat. Caron Wheeler)
The best Modern soulful track ever composed and created. How to transform the dancefloor of a big and crowded club into a church.
