The oddballs of electronica — 100 Years of Solid Dudes Vol.2

20 January 2015

This is not just another mixtape, this is the new wave weird shit mixtape. Our new love, Philadelphia's label 100 Years of Solid Dudes, released 45 minutes of cohesively organised hot mess of epic proportions — devised by James Weissinger aka Jamesvilla. There seems to be no direction to the mixtape whatsoever, which proves it to be a gnarly cluster of fast forward experiences.


2:35 - a disco boogie with grand strings to introduce you the trip you're about to embark on

12:20 - the urge to do the jitterbug

15:28 - you're thrown into a Super Mario vs. Bowser battle, and you're winning

18:50 - a blender of alien plucking and a sweet serenade of electronica doused in a harder sample

23:26 - tropical tech which hurls past the halfway mark

29:09 - ex b-boy flow with a constant loop of bass

33:22 - seems vaguely K-Pop inspired with a fuse of disco precision, all around good fun

40:35 - wobbly effects that punctuate drunk dancing and promote lusty frenzies

45:23 - winds you down from the insane rush of beats and injects you with a sense of ease

100 Years of Solid Dudes proves to be, No 'tudes, Just Dudes", with this colossal mixtape presented by Jameszilla. This is the type of collection that pushes your playlists to search for the oddballs of electronica.
