The Death Set – Artificially Sweetened Mix

The Death Set are not a new band, just one that I’ve recently become familiar with. They formed sometime ago in Sydney, Australia back in 2005. Shortly after they moved to the States, residing in Baltimore and Philadelphia before setting up permanent residence in Brooklyn. Since then they’ve released loads of EPs and singles as well as their first album “Worldwide” (released on Ninja Tune in the UK) in 2008.

Their sound is a fusion of punk rock, electronica and hip hop and their live sets are said to be particularly crazy, with the band often performing at crowd level with the audience surrounding them. I want to see these guys BAD, so I’ll be keeping an eye out for future UK dates. Below is a mix they recently put together for my favourite lifestyle blog Mishka. The 43 track party mix (which is predominantly a mix of rock and rap) is fucking rad, and you should download it now. Tracklist is after the jump.
