The Ultimate MixTape – Best 2000s “Dubbo’s” Music Edition

Anyone under 25 would probably call this the Ultimate Playlist, but I’m about a decade beyond that and therefore the MixTape it is.


I went by the blank CD rule of having to fit everything in a time limit of less than 78 minutes, which resulted in some tough cuts, especially once I was about 10 minutes over and had to kill off the last couple tracks.

I spent literally seconds on the track order here, and kept myself to a hard limit of 1 track per artist for the decade. Perhaps if you aren’t much of a hip hop head some tracks may not be your cup of tea, but if you have “broad tastes” I really think there is something for everyone here.

Firstly, apologies to the following artists, they are all exceptional tracks but mostly due to time constraints met the axe, I have *’d the hardest few cuts:

Archive – Again (16 minutes long!) *

Augie March – The Hole In Your Roof

Black Eyed Peas – Weekends *

Bodyjar – One In A Million *

Cee-Lo – Bad Mutha

Faithless – Muhammad Ali *

Jebediah – The First Time

Massive Attack/Mos Def – I Against I

Morphine – The Night

Outkast – Morris Brown *

Papa Roach – Time And Time Again

Reef – Give Me Your Love

Snoop Dogg – Snoop D.O.G.G.

Unkle – An Eye For An Eye

Wu-Tang Clan – Protect Ya Neck II (The Jump Off)

(Once again from the list above there is another excellent MixTape in waiting, 15 tracks in 78 odd minutes.)

About OGR

While I try to throw a joke or two into proceedings when I can all of the opinions presented in my reviews are genuine. I don't expect that all will agree with my thoughts at all times nor would it be any fun if you did, so don't be shy in telling me where you think I went wrong... and hopefully if you think I got it right for once. Don't be shy, half the fun is in the conversation after the movie.
