Soundtrack to the Shaft Movie of Your Dreams


Aquarium Drunkard recently released its second mix in collaboration with Peer Schouten, a Copenhagen-based DJ and record collector. Titled Shaft’s Old Man: An Imaginary Soul Jazz Soundtrack, the mixtape is divided into an intro and six acts, delineating the major plot points and themes of the imaginary spy film it sonically scripts. This is the kind of dream compilation we all wait for, taking us from things we know to songs we’d never find without people like this and their obsessive knowledge of all things incredible. Download the full mixtape on the Aquarium Drunkard site.
