Shame on me for only remembering to post this mix now!! Girl Unit's Dollars To Pounds mix for The Fader was unleashed back in November, and I frothed over it then, but somehow didn't run my ears over it again until the last few days. And it's replaced Jamie xx's most excellent effort for BBC Radio 1. That's how good it is. Gosh have these skinny white boys from England blown my mind with some absolutely banging and intelligent mixes lately!
This Girl Unit Dollars to Pounds mix is cinematic. There are a bunch of tracks on there that struck me as potentially a much more exciting soundtrack for Tron than the Daft Punk effort; more interesting than what they produced yet deep enough not to take distract too much from the film. Not like we all weren't conscious enough of the soundtrack anyways.
The way this mix moves is rock solid, focussed and strong - there are no weak points; it's like some big motherfucking dragon flying through the sky or something. I know it's old news, but I couldn't leave it unposted, it's just too fucking brilliant.
