Mix #132: Kawaii Wildstyle

Attack of Burger Crab & Pizzasaurus

This mix is very, very different from what you usually hear on Sweet Headache and probably also from many other DJ mixes that you know.

I tried to give myself a little challenge here:
First of all, I wanted to get rid of genre borders.This mix has Dubstep, Psytrance, midtempo tracks and a couple of other genres all mixed seamlessly. The mix begins and ends at pretty much the same BPM but everything in between is more of a rollercoaster ride – a true wildstyle mix.

Secondly, I wanted to select music with a somewhat different mood and atmosphere. The Japanese idea of “kawaii”  (cute, adorable) was a big inspiration for me. I have explored kawaii art a bit over the last couple of months and I find it a fascinating and unique style that has influenced almost everything from video games to street art. Even some unexpected genres like Heavy Metal incorporate kawaii influences. Translating this style into a mix was something I had not done before and it was really fun to do it.

I assume that this is a “love it or hate it” mix. If you love it then please let me know! If you hate it – well, there’s plenty of other music. 🙂

I also recorded a video of me making the mix:
