DJ Yoda Made a 52-Minute Stranger Things-Inspired Mixtape [LISTEN]

Stranger Things, the sci-fi/horror show created by the Duffer Brothers, was released as a Netflix original series on July 15th and is already well on its way to cult status. Leveraging 80s nostalgia with an E.T.-meets-The-Goonies vibe, this show is taking the internet by storm.

London turntablist DJ Yoda decided to bring the sounds of Stranger Things to SoundCloud with a 52-minute mixtape mashing the show's soundtrack with sound bites of dialogue.

From original scores to music from Tangerine Dream, The Smiths, Modern English, Toto, Jefferson Airplane, The Clash and more featured in the series, the mixtape is a welcomed treat for fans as they await the official Stranger Things soundtrack.

The haunting synths of the original scores alone have contributed to the show's massive success. The two musicians responsible for the X-Files-esque original - Kyle Dixon and Michael Stein, one-half of the Austin group S U RV I V E - have since been thrust into the spotlight.

Viewers are already demanding a second season, and Ross Duffer told Variety that if there were to be a follow-up, there would be a lot to look forward to.

"There’s a lot there we don’t know or understand. Even with 'The Upside Down,' we have a 30-page document that is pretty intricate in terms of what it all means, where this monster actually came from, and why aren’t there more monsters."

The first season was carefully crafted to rope you in with curiosity and suspense and the next season would be set up to explore this world, Duffer confirmed.

"We have all this stuff that we just didn’t have time for, or we didn’t feel like we needed to get into in season one, because of the main tension of Will. We have that whole other world that we haven’t fully explored in this season, and that was very purposeful."
