It took way too long, but after hours and hours of scouring Reddit and Soundcloud, I finally found what satisfies my tastes for a quality audio rip of the
24 hour 18 hour marathon DJ set(s) by Skrillex, Diplo, and their various friends.
This Soundcloud user has broken up the sets as best he could, and I think he’s done a fine job. For me, the highlights start in part 2 at 26:40 when they kick off a block of old school hip hop with Bonita Applebum from A Tribe Called Quest.
I’m not going to sit here and pretend I’ve listened to every minute of this mix. That’d be ridiculous. I’m sure some people out there have, but, to be frank, I have better things to do. Not much better, and not a lot of better things to do, but enough that they’re keeping me from vegging out for 18 hours to take it all in.
Check it all out below and send your thanks to this guy who was dedicated enough to sacrifice his own health to bring us what we want.
PS – In Anna’s words, “The tin foil hat wearing person in me thinks it the whole police bust was planned.” And I completely agree. I’m not saying it was planned… but I’m not convinced it wasn’t either.
