Podcast 80: Meanest Man Contest's Category Killer Selection

Publish date:

Meanest Man Contest might be known for making hip-hop and leftfield electronic music, but when we approached the duo and asked them to curate the next installment of the XLR8R Podcast, they gave us a pleasantly surprising mix that goes above and beyond the word "eclectic."

How eclectic? Well, there's one of the duo's own tracks, remixed by producer Touane. Then comes leftfield hip-hop from DOOM and Boom Bip, old-school rock tunes from cult bands like The Idle Race and The Wirtschaftswunder, lots of soul from Tim Maia, and slightly country flavored jam by Plug Research artist Samamidon.

Category Killer Selection:
01 The Idle Race - "Morning Sunshine"
02 Tim Maia - "Réu Confesso"
03 Shelly Duvall - "He's Large"
04 Neil Innes & Son - "Cum on Feel the Noize"
05 The Wirtschaftswunder - "The Girls of the Navy"
06 The Samps - "Magnetic Thys"
07 Fashion - "You Only Left Your Picture"
