Just a few months ago, one of the most interesting and over-the-top hilarious mixtapes broke the internet: ‘Literally Fuck Genres‘, from Australian artist Willco. Well, we’ve got great news: Willco has returned with a sequel to the mix, this time aptly titled ‘Literally Fuck Genres Harder’, and you can give it a first listen right here.
It’s hard with any form of media – movie, track, mix, book, the works – to create a sequel that matches the prowess of the original, but quite frankly, we think this mix might be even better than its predecessor. It has more of a hip-hop and alternative rock feel this time around, hitting some big audience favorites from the past years like Panic! At The Disco’s “I Write Sins Not Tragedies”, Kendrick Lamar’s “m.a.a.d city” and Blink-182’s “I Miss You”, to name a few. It also brings in quite a few genres and tracks you’d never expect to be able to mix with each other in one of the most impressive ways we’ve heard in a long time. With a few seconds to each track mixed into 17 minutes of glory, this mix hits a massive spectrum of songs that a) we never thought we’d hear again and b) everyone in the room will absolutely be able to sing along to.
Though there are far too many nuggets of greatness in this mix to point out, here’s one of the best moments by far: at approximately 8 minutes and 30 seconds, the recorder rendition of The Chainsmokers’ “Closer” that just about sums up how so many of us feel about the quality of their work. True glory.
For a little taste of the creative madness that went on behind this mix’s creation, just take a look at some of the names of the mashup tracks that were included: “Shooting Foxes In The Face Cos This Meme Hurts My Soul”, “At Least Buy The Police Dinner First”, “If Busta Rhymes Owned Ripped Jeans And A Hair Straightener” and “WHERE ARE YOU AND IM SAW SAWRY”. Each of these mashups are so on point, and the names are even more amazing.
When asked about the mix’s inspiration, Willco told us:
“I’m 99% sure I have ADHD, but only when I’m dj’ing, I get really bored really easily and want to play dumb shit because I think it’s funny”
Alongside this magic music and classic mashup track names is the artwork that, of course, is as ridiculous as everything else. You can than artist Ash Schmitt for this one – find him on Instagram and Facebook – and appreciate the wonderful imagery of Marshmello tied to a bedpost with a little taste of deadmau5 right beside him.
Give this epic follow-up mix a listen below! You can download each of the mashups individually here or by heading to the Soundcloud page and clicking “Download More AIDS” (because that’s exactly what you want, right?).
