Playlist: Heist On The Highway – High-Stakes Soul

062F5210

The playlists just keep coming. I accumulated a good amount of funky jazz + adjacent jams and thought to string them together into a cinematic thriller; reminding me of fictional spy movies from the 50s and 60s, full of music from Brazil, Turkey, Italy, Switzerland, Syria, France and more. Slinky basslines, whipping guitars, fat drums, big horns, whirlwind mellotron and psychedelic breakdowns. This one is lots of fun and I can’t wait to go driving with it blasting.

Picture a worldwide syndicate of spies intercepting a rare jewel from an armored truck on the hottest day of the year. Full of zoom-in close-up profiles of characters named “Claude ‘The Spider’ Margolis” or “Sasha ‘Fire & Water’ Eastman”. I don’t know. Just making things up. Trying to use my imagination. I’m thinking of Sly Cooper 2 a lot as well. It always goes back to video games with me, specifically ones from 2001-2008. Anyways, full tracklist and playlist below.
