Optimo - Drum Attack! Mix

A few years back, JD Twitch did a great series of monthly mixes for the Optimo site. They all had different themes, and were always a nice wee treat for the iPod. Only snag was that they were encoded at a pish bitrate - 128kbps to be precise.

This one was always a favourite of mine, especially the mixing of the TV On The Radio track over the Liquid Liquid one. Magnificent! So - a request popped up on the Echatio Forum the other day, asking if someone could repost it. Being the generous chap he is, Twitch not only uploaded it, but stuck it up at 320kbps! Get this one down your internet pipe - it is truly special. Twitch, if you're reading this, can we get a 320 of the "What On Earth..." one next...?

i downloaded this just to hear staring at the sun mixed as it's one of my faves but always felt it needed something more. not sure the cowbell is doing it but i'll give it another go, if only for the fact it reminds me of the will ferrell SNL sketch 'more cowbell'.
good job though.

goose bumps when "staring at the sun" kicked in, no joke!
