Last night, I released disc one of Chart Toppers: Volume 4. Disc two will be out tonight with some more recognizable Halloween tracks on it.
A lot of people have been asking me about my mindset behind creating two separate mixes. In a nutshell, Halloween is probably one of the biggest party times of the year after events such as New Year’s Eve. In creating this mix, I wanted to keep with the Chart Toppers theme and include some of the currents hits, but I also wanted to pepper in a few “oh s**t” songs, if you will. Essentially, an “oh s**t” song is one that people haven’t heard in a while and when it drops, you get a great reaction. When it came down to including more tracks in addition to the current top 40 songs, I ended up with 72 songs. The way these mixes run, that would’ve been two hours of straight music. So to ease the listening burden, I decided to release two separate discs. And … there it is.
Featured artists on disc one are: Alexandra Stan, Dev, Drake, Enrique Iglesias, Flo Rida Hyper Crush, Lady Gaga, LMFAO and Sebastian Igrosso.
Wow, it looks like this blog has been credited by Know Your Meme as the origin of the Minimal Movie Poster internet trend! To be frank, there were a fair few MMPs floating around the net before this blog came along, but it’s cool to have been given so much credit for pushing the trend along! If you want to see where the whole internet minimal movie posters thing really began, check out work by folks like Olly Moss and Brandon Schaefer. It’s kind of nice to feel like a part of this tiny little segment of internet history though…
