Crystal’s Team Pick: ‘Gay Like Happy’ Mixtape

Two talented queer DJs, Dr Sleep (San Francisco) and Campbell (London), have created a slammin’ dance mixtape, Gay Like Happy, and have made it available as a free download.

Dr Sleep explains “it’s authentically mixed by us, so it’s not a string of favorite hits or remixes – it’s accapellas and instrumentals we dug through our crates for and rearranged into what we think is pretty campy-gay-fun.” I’m inclined to agree. The tape, which I feel must’ve taken forever to compile, is chock full of mash ups from a ton of artists we love (P!nk, La Roux and Peaches to name a few),  chopped with some amazing queer soundbites from Sandra Bernhard, kd lang and more. Go check it out.
