The Dark Crystal Mixtape

This is a fan tribute to one of my first, earliest fandoms. Jim Henson has affected my life greatly, go watch the movie if you have never seen it before...go listen to the full OST by Trevor Jones where some of the songs have samples from. In no way is this a for profit project, I am solely looking to get some creative things out there greatly influenced by the world of the Dark Crystal. Information contained in lyrics has sources from the movie, manga, comics, additional mythologies from wiki sites, etc. If things are not perfectly accurate I apologize in advance and simply ask you enjoy my perspective and metaphors drawn from the world.


released September 14, 2015

Main credit first off has to go to Trevor Jones who masterfully created the original OST for the movie.
Brian Froud, Frank Oz & Jim Henson for all of the resources and mythologies that were sub-sequentially or directly created when the movie was in production from their amazing artwork and passion
More credit as well goes to the web developers, writers and staff who recently (within the past 5 years) updated the dark crystal wiki pages which I gathered much side information to use for lyrics
Lastly the writers and artists involved with the recent Dark Crystal comic books 'Creation Myths' by Archaia Entertainment.

Dj RoboRob and Hijinks pulled some samples from it, as well as myself for additional samples using dialog etc.
