This mix runs through a combination of old folk, blues, hip-hop and indie, with a bit of ambient thrown in for good measure. I've been wanting to use The Other Side on a mix for a while now, and this mix grew out of that desire.

This mix may or may not be based on a true story. You decide.

And please, feel free to critique.... I'm very curious to hear what you think. (download link)

Some very apt choices for your theme along with some interesting, unexpected turns. Looks fantastic!

Thanks to both of you.

Hemizen, it's my mission in life to remind everyone that Nina Simone is a goddess of some sort.

Another great concept. I'm working backwards through your ouvre, as you might have noticed.
