In general, I’m not a fan of mixes or compilations, it’s not that I don’t appreciate them, understand their value, and find music that I’ve never heard, it’s just that usually they take up a lot of room on my iPhone, and that real estate is quite valuable. Though with any “rule” there are always exceptions to be made. For instance I really loved the Public Spaces The Future Lab (review) compilation as well as BFW Recordings’ Album in a Day (review). Given Mystified’s great ear for music, I took a look at the artists participating in A Land of Broken Toys Mix (Tree Trunk), and immediately had to give it a listen. I was not disappointed. In listening to many of Mystifed’s works, he knows how to bring the listener along, when to speed the tempo up, when to bring the noise and when to chill. Mystified leaves The Land of Broken Toys Mix at only 30 minutes which works very well as it leaves the listening wanting more.
