JayBeeDub January 2023 Mixtape

New year, new month, new mixtape! Start 2023 off on a good foot with some jams. This 40 song variety mix has songs ranging from 2022 all the way back to 1968. Featuring tracks by Sault, Talk Talk, Black Crowes, PUP and many more.

A couple of the standout tracks that I had in this month's mixtape was Child in Time, Pt. 1 by Deep Purple. Now I'm definitely not a classic rock kind of guy, but I was watching Netflix's 1899(which has unfortunately already been cancelled) and this song was dropped at the end of one of the episodes and was just perfect.

The last track in the playlist was something I heard Marco Collins drop on his KEXP show one night and what a slap upside the head. This is a song that demands your attention. It's just such a bold statement on mental health and self doubt. It's so earnest and raw. I left it as the grand finale of the mix, since it's an 8 minute and 35 second journey.
