TY-Rannosaurus-RIE’s “No, no I didn’t fall off the edge of the earth; I’m still very much alive thank you and I’ve the mixtape to prove it” Mixtape

Well, it’s late November i.e. peak mope time for yours truly. But as it turns out I’m actually feeling pretty good at the moment, which is at least partially to do with this sweet little mixtape that was provided me by the homie TY-Rannosaurus-RIE. Yep, he’s is still around, and he still has the beat on some killer music. And while he  doesn’t really post mixes here anymore, he will apparently make one for you if you pester him long enough. (Perhaps he’ll return to dB someday if we keep badgering him about it.)

This particular mix, which was created just so I would shut up, evokes images of open road (well, at least to me it does). It opens with a Tourette’s-y little number sung by what sounds a little like a modern day cowboy crossed with Brak singing the blues, and it really just keeps getting better from there.
