Experiencing Incredible Heists – Brian Gossett (23 total)

Need a little excitement in your life? Looking for that next great adventure? Then check out Brian Gossett’s Heist Series. In June of 2009, Gossett decided to devote his blog purely to his personal hand-picked mixes, one of his obsessive passions in hopes of landing his dream job as a music supervisor for film. Crafting mixes into more specific narratives, he hopes that “as you listen, films play within your mind made up of characters of your imagination.”

So, let yourself feel like James Bond for a few minutes. Order that martini shaken, not stirred. Just remember who to thank for that mini-escape.

“I am a huge fan of heist films. They exude a sense of excitement and wonderment. The recipe for a great caper is a seemingly impossible score, specialized team members, exotic sports cars, gadgets galore, globetrotting, beautiful yet conniving women, a dash of good humor, and an impeccable musical backdrop. The latter brings us to my latest series of mixes, The Heist Series. I have chosen artists who have scored classic and modern heist films. To add color to these mixes are complimentary tracks that flavor the ambience of the narrative. Each subsequent mix to follow, will personify a city in which our fictitious caper takes place. Enjoy this first mix on our tour, Las Vegas. Shuffle it up, or play it straight.”

You can even download the mixes on his site.
