Occult Persuasions


This was a hard mix to put together. After the opening track (a creepy, malevolent bit of dialogue from an old kung-fu movie) it mostly samples contemporary hip-hop.

All of the songs here, though, have a common theme: the unfettered id. Coke-dealer braggadocio, endless parties in VIP clubs, constant threats of gunplay.

Much about hip-hop culture is life-affirming, but that's not what this mix is about. This is both about the horrors lurking in the dark - and the evil that lies within.
