Liam Prodigy 

Back to Mine

The original series of its kind, the Back to Mine mix compilations offer a window into what a chosen musician listens to at home after a long night out clubbing. The latest entry comes to us from Prodigy mastermind Liam Howlett; in a brief hour, he includes numbers from Queens of the Stone Age ("Feel Good Hit of the Summer") to Dolly Parton ("Jolene") to Meat Beat Manifesto ("Radio Babylon"), not to mention a triple threat from the Specials, the Stranglers, and the Jam. These are slotted in easily and sensibly among hip-hop staples from Public Enemy, Method Man, and Noreaga. Liam's concern here is not so much making the beats match as shifting the moods just enough to make the transitions work. And they do. Who would've thought Vatican DC, Dolly Parton, and P.I.L. could fit together so seamlessly?
