Your Last-Night Soundtrack: The Heatwave’s End-of-the-World Mix

Words by Jesse Serwer—

Last Party on Earth mixtape

So, we hear there’s one night before we all die in a cataclysmic, earth-terminating event predicated thousands of years ago by the Mayan calendar. If you’re like this dude, you’re preparing for the apocalypse in the 70-by-50-foot diesel-powered “ark” you built with your life savings. If you’re like us, you’re getting ready to party. (This is where we’ll be, for the record).

To make sure you’re properly prepared for armagideon, top-ranking British sound The Heatwave just sent us their Last Party on Earth mixtape. At 75 minutes long and 84 songs deep, the mix is stacked not just with dancehall, but hip-hop, R&B and more, the unifying theme behind all of the selections being the idea of letting go. Actually we’re not even sure what ties Missy Elliot’s “Get Your Freak On,” MJ’s “Billie Jean” and Mavado’s “Star Bwoy” together, but we do think Shabba Ranks’ “Caan Done” was a savvy selection. Stream/download here, and check out the full tracklist below.

And if you’re in a more ruminative, somber mood, check out LargeUp’s Toppa Top 10 end-times tunes here.
