The Great Canadian Mixtape Project:: Prince Edward Island

I know. I know. This took forever! We were hit in the grill with real life and then were waiting on some songs that took a bit longer than we expected, but like Tag Team says - "Whoomp. Here it is." The Great Canadian Mixtape:: PEI style. Even though PEI is the smallest province, the scene is unreal and several bands are already getting National attention. Finding good bands was easy... whittling it down to the final was the hard part. Well, that and tying in an 80's hip hop reference to the whole affair.

Of course we are heavy on the Collegan Rock acts. Two Hours Traffic is one of the best bands out there right now, but The Danks have been know to crank up the party and Smothered in Hugs - at least according to Matt Charlton - might be the best band out there. But PEI is more than just cruching riffs. The Grass Mountain Hobos. Meaghan Blanchard. Catherline MacLellan. Pat Deighan. Tim Chaisson. Eric Broadbent. The Barnkats! The list is endless, so take the time to get to know some of these bands. You won't be sorry.

Thanks to Matt Charlton, Lloyd @ Sandbar and Killbeat Ken for getting us some exclusive and new tracks for the mix.

My fav bands from this list are Milks & Rectangles, The Danks, Racoon Bandit, Boxer the Horse, The North Lakes and Smothered In Hugs- although the rest are really great.

Gosh darnnit, I love the PEI music scene!

Good job of picking some our Island's best stuff. We've got some exciting stuff going on here right now.
Why isn't THT listed on the back cover art?

Hmm, since Jackson Leftfield is on the mix, I'll assume you're asking where Boxer The Horse are at this precise moment. I'm afraid I don't know.
