Apollo Playlists #OnDeck


I was lucky enough to get to curate this month’s #OnDeck playlist for my homies over at Apollo Playlists, I called it Resistance, Rebellion & Death after the Albert Camus book.

I don’t know what it is about this new year that’s got me in the giving mood. Yesterday was an old Aesop demo and today, I give you this…a 20 track compilation of remixes I’ve done over the years. Some are rappers, some are singers and some are old soul songs I felt like putting a new spin on. As a thank you to all my readers and supporters , I give you this. Hopefully , there will be songs you’ve never heard or have been looking for. Enjoy!

Sad Batub Mix

Greagory Pepper curated, HALO mixed and Doesntsuck approved, here’s what the Pep had to say about it, “Those who know me well are already aware of my affinity towards soaking in the tub. There’s no greater reward at the end of a long day than sliding into a 40 degree pool of sudsy water with a cooler of beer at arm’s length and some sweet jams on the stereo. Though i usually only listen to grindcore during the daylight hours, bath time at Camp Pepper demands a precise musical accompaniment: Adagio tempo, clean tones, and somber melodies that evoke a sense of hopeless optimism. So with the summer drawing to a close, I’m pleased to share with you some of my sad bathtub favorites. Lots of classic pop and melancholy folk from the past five decades curated by yours truly and edited / scratched by the homie DJ Halo. I hope you dig it.” – Gregory Pepper, September 2015
