So I’m sure you are all over all the Alt Summit posts but I have one more to share. The music. The music for the party – any party really – was really important to me. We had the urban jungle theme and I wanted to make sure that the music added to the atmosphere. Don’t laugh. But the sound I wanted for the party was based on the funeral scene in Zoolander. If you don’t remember it, which is totally possible, it had a great beat, it was instrumental, it was overly cool and felt a little urban. But I’m pretty sure that Pandora would’t have had a channel for that so I went through my own music to see what had a similar feel.
These songs are some of my favorites right now and both the Phantogram and the Lorde nailed the sound.
And I LOVE mashups so I spent a little time researching indie/hip hop mashups. I’ve listened to The Hood Internet before and they kill it every time. Here are some of my favorites from the playlist. And while Step by Vampire Weekend is not one of The Hood Internet songs, I can’t get enough of it. And don’t even think of skipping French Montana over Beach House (!!!!)
