Last week, Dan Snaith aka Caribou put together ‘The Longest Mixtape’, a does-what-it-says-on-the-tin bringing together of his musical upbringing. Spanning 1000 tracks, he put the whole thing up on Youtube and told people to play it on shuffle.
Speaking at the time about the mixtape, Caribou said: “I’m sure some things are under-represented or over-represented, but roughly speaking this is a musical history of my life. Of course a lot of this music has come to me through my friends – thank you to Koushik, Kieran, Jeremy, Gary, Brandon, Jason, Sam, Ketan, Ryan, Toby and many others…”
