There are mashups, and then there are quality mashups.
I’ll confess to not having always posted the most amazing blends, but trust me on this one: Tor’s use of Sufjan Stevens’ “Star Of Wonder” as the backing track to Aesop Rock’s “None Shall Pass” is among one of the best I’ve heard.
Toronto-based artist Tor took seven of Sufjan’s songs spanning four albums and mushed it with Aesop Rock, Big Daddy Kane, Gift of Gab (Blackalicious), C.L. Smooth, Outkast, Brother Ali, and Grand Puba, respectively.
In case you’re curious to hear the outcome, you can stream and download the entire Illinoize mixtape here.
