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.

Before you go! It costs money to make indie queer media, and frankly, we need more members to survive 2023As thanks for LITERALLY keeping us alive, A+ members get access to bonus content, extra Saturday puzzles, and more! Will you join? Cancel anytime.
