VANCOUVER — Sixty-eight songs in 5 1/2 minutes. Daniel Kim, a part-time composer and DJ, has mixed some of the hottest songs from 2013 into a single track.

Kim, a part-time composer and DJ, has created mixes like these for the past three years, calling them “Pop Danthology.”  His most recent remix has been viewed nearly 11 million times.

He told NPR it takes planning to make his mashups. He looks for similar keys and common words to match songs together.

“I can’t stand music that progresses slowly, entertainment that progresses slowly,” he said. “So making a mashup is like putting together this huge, huge puzzle — getting just all the best parts and putting them together in a way that the listener doesn’t have to just endure through boring filler parts, but they can get just the best pieces of everything.”
