The Blood Bros. are, for lack of a better description, an awesome DJ duo with an awesome goal: creating mix tapes compiled from the best 80′s action movie songs. A quick listen to the first few minutes of each track (after the jump) on their two mixes will have you running in gym sweats or bench pressing logs faster than you can say “Adriaann!”. The duo’s original mix First Blood followed-up with Heaven2Hell stretch out for 40 and 45 minutes of pure work-out-montage perfection. Each compilation is also choreographed to follow the plot of a classic good guy triumphs over the bad guy flick, so the opening tunes are all about training, which then transitions to the fight, and finally the glorious thrill of victory. Classics like Eye of the Tiger and Joe Episito’s You’re the Best Around from the Karate Kid are included along with plenty of other gems. We will start with the more recent mixtape created by Derek ‘DJA’ Allen and Dirty South Joe. Put this mix on and remind yourself to PUSH IT TO THE LIMIT AND STARE DOWN YOUR DEMONS!

And here is volume 1 “Blood Bros – First Blood” which started it all. Put this mix on when you are training on the beach, hitting the bag, chopping wood, running up/down a mountain, or generally doing anything which requires involves fierce determination and focus to win. BLOOD BROS!
