Six Degrees of Separation
August 10th, 2007

A collaborative mix between myself and Ryan Hale - aka This Image of Man. Ryan put forth the idea of a mix that worked along the lines of the "Kevin Bacon Game" where you linked one band to the next but had no definitive beginning or end. Producers and Remixers don't count - they have to be featured on the original recording. The hardest part about getting the mix together was in deciphering which direction would lead the mix to a more interesting aural place. I think we did pretty well with the path that we chose.*

Menomena (Danny Siems) → All Smiles (Jim Fairchild) → Grandaddy (Jason Lytle) → Goldcard (Charlie Campbell) → Quasi (Sam Coomes) → Elliott Smith (Joey Waronker) → Beck (Petra Hayden) → The Decemberists (Rachel Blumberg) → M. Ward (Neko Case) → The New Pornographers (Dan Bejar) → Swan Lake (Spencer Krug) → Sunset Rubdown

*we did decipher a path that lead to Kevin Bacon's band The Bacon Brothers but, ultimately, decided against it.
