If I had to make the guess, I'd say they call it Platypus Beats because it's made up of a little of everything and it's totally unique--and like Plato Platypus above, the folks at Platypus Beats find beautiful music everywhere.
In honor of my upcoming DJ set at Saturday's Platypus-Beats-Presents show at Alex's in Long Beach including punk from La Ghost, indie pop from Eugene and the 1914 and Colombian vallenato music from Very Be Careful, I put together a mix that I hope gets some of that same spirit.
