This week, I happened to be out of town for the launch of Slop Press, a site headed up by a few friends which centers on food and food culture. One of the founders had asked me to put together a mix for the launch since the venue (Walrus in Vancouver) was too small for a DJ. No worries, I said, and proceded to make a mix full of as many food-referencing songs as I could. One the radio, you probably only managed to hear the first 55 minutes, but here it is in its full 75 minute, ahem, glory (glory is far too strong a word to describe this mix, but I hope you enjoy it anyways…)

The launch was a huge success and the place was completely packed for hours. The 2 food trucks catering the party were having trouples getting more than 6′ in the door before their trays were emptied. Definitely a fun time. Launch Mix by beatdiet
