Yuletide greetings. It is Bananamania’s 1st ever Christmas, and as we spend all year giving you the freshest mixtapes, then the season of goodwill shall bring some very special Christmas gifts for you.
‘Stille Nacht’ is a Christmas carol composed in 1818 by Joseph Mohr and Franz Xaver Gruber which became very popular around the world. In 1976 it was given a psychedelic re-design by motorik madmen Can. In 2010 this inventive version was further re-invented by Discos Capablanca’s very own T Keeler, extending the original into a five and a half minute epic that will last you all the way into boxing day. We think that Mohr and Gruber would wholeheartedly approve.
As an additional stocking filler, we have dug through our scattered mediafire archives and uploaded (nearly) all of 2010’s mixtapes into an easily digestible Soundcloud format. Sadly, Mixtape #8 by Headman will not be uploaded as it was only available for a short time, plus a couple are still lost on a server somewhere in Siberia – but our crack team of hackers are working 24-7 to find the missing tapes. For now, we present to you 13 and a half hours of incredible music to help you through the festive season. Happy New Year from all at Bananamania!
