Maverick Mixtapes: Dan Deacon

Email a Friend

For Maverick Mixtapes, we asked musicians from different musical backgrounds to curate an hour of music that they deemed best fit the ideal of an "American Maverick." Today's featured musician is composer and electronic musician Dan Deacon.

"I chose the composers on this collection because most of them live outside of the popular genres of 20th Century avant garde and experimental. I wanted to feature as many composers as possible so I tried to find as many pop-song length pieces that still represented the composers style or sound. Of course even 12 composers is like a hand full of sand to represent a beach. The tracks are ordered from longest to shortest for no reason." -Dan Deacon
