Tyler, The Creator might frequently be lambasted as ‘tasteless’, but his record collection suggests otherwise.

On ‘Fin’, the closing cut on The Odd Future Tape, the agit-rapper rattled off an impressive list of his favourite records: Stereolab’s Chemical Chords, Madlib’s Shades Of Blue and Stones Throw’s Chrome Children compilation all appear (disclaimer: D12’s Devil’s Night also made the cut).

This time last year, Tyler released a tape of summer jams under the nom de plume DJ Stank Daddy; Toro Y Moi and James Pants featured alongside more familiar rap fare. The Odd Future lynchpin has now reprised the Stank Daddy persona for a new tape, featuring tracks that didn’t make the cut first time around. The mix goes under the laudably efficient name ‘Songs That Didn’t Make The First Summer Camp Mix’. Estelle, LCD Soundsytem, Bootsy Collins and Sleigh Bells all jostle for attention, and there are a couple of unheard Tyler tracks in the mix too. Click here to nab the tape.
