At the very end of last year Ryan Hemsworth resolved to make 2014 “awesome and not boring,” and today he makes it so with the delivery of his first mix of the year: The Cool DJ Mix. Running about an hour, it incorporates sounds and songs we know and love (Son Lux, “Karate Chop,” Tree, an acapella of Wet’s “No Lie” he’s marked as “so pretty wow,” and etc.) and even more we’re excited to discover, a Pokemon sample and a vicious, unreleased Tink verse (at 35:18). He says it was inspired “life, death, technology, rap music, Japan, being a cool DJ, kissing, cuddling, feeling hurt, happy, feeling dumb, and other things,” and suggests you “LISTEN TO THIS ON HEADPHONES WHEN YOU’RE ZOOTED ON A GREYHOUND BUSS HEADING HOME THINKING ABOUT HER PERFECT FACE.” Got it?
