Last week, we were graced with a special promo-only mix CD sequenced and edited by David Edwards, the man you ought to know as Minotaur Shock. When we chatted, it was mostly about the music that influenced his new record, Maritime, and this CD is an hour and three seconds of proof that he wasn't just making music crit small talk. Props-worthy touches include a brief snippet of Isaac Hayes grilling Snake Plissken in Escape From New York and The Rotary Connection's "Memory Lane" (the sample mined for "Bonita Applebum") - check the full tracklisting after the jump.
