Don’t really know how to describe this, but its pretty damn epic. A 155 minute long mashup album divided into 7 chapters by SLEEPER (pictured above). The work is called Counting Cavemen and SLEEPER himself has this to say about it:
I think about Cavemen everyday.
Their sounds, smells, habits, & pains…
what they did in situations like my own.
I’ve been captivated by them since as long as I can remember.
Thinking about how we lived our lives hundreds of years ago blows my mind.
Counting Cavemen is the sequel to Counting Lazers.
I’ve been working on it for almost three years.
There was a point where I thought it would never be finished, bah!
The mix has 7 chapters/sections which all connect together. Each chapter has a different musical style/theme that Cavemen went through.
* Chapter 1: Guitar
The very first instruments & sounds of the world. Filled with live music, piano, guitar, grunts and claps.
* Chapter 2: Pimp
First caveman pimp arrives and finds his muse. She gets pimped. Uptempo, grinding, uptempo, nasty boom.
* Chapter 3: Love
Pimp falls deeply in love with his muse. She’s a whore & breaks his heart. Jazzy, drum & bass, smooth.
* Chapter 4: Dance
Heartbroken Caveman moves on, creates a cave solely made for dance. The first b-boy is born. Packed with dance, dance, dance.
* Chapter 5: War
World War of monstrous proportions spreads across the globe. Hard, evil, dark, dubstep, drum & bass.
* Chapter 6: God
Cavemen discover & feel God. Introspective, magical.
* Chapter 7: Heaven
Cavemen become extinct. Melodic, epic, powerful.
Weird description I know, but the mix is impressive both in its quantity and quality. I haven’t got a chance to listen to all of it but what I’ve heard so far is really good stuff. You can check it out here. Even more impressive is that he made video 3 different video mixes for some of his chapters, and if you’ve ever done any video editing you know these take a lot of talent and patience. For your viewing pleasure:
Definitely blows DJ EARWORM out of the water.
