Day In, Day Out - A DJ Day compilation (pt. 2)

Shortly after I made "All Day Long", DJ Day put out his sophomore album on the Piecelock 70 label.  Needless to say, I had to revisit and tweak the original mix to not only tighten it up, but also include tracks from his banging new album.  So without further "adu", please take a listen and give support the man who recently released a Serato record with remixes from the album "Land of 1000 Chances".

Go Ahead Buck!

After a recent concert to see Buck 65 at Mezzanine in San Francisco I was reminded of what a clever cat he was.  It was inspiring to see a Canuck mix jazz, blues, funk, folk, etc. and make it sound hip hop.  His musical craft is quite inspiring and I took it upon myself to mix a hodgepodge of his tunes that struck a chord with me.

Inverse Discourse (A Joe Beats Compilation)

Another beat maker extraordinaire from the east coast.  Included in the mix are 62 minutes of my favorites from his Lex and Bully Records releases, as well as a few CDs and 45s.  Big-ups to "Jose Betas" for sending me the vinyl recently at the nice price.  I hope y'all dig it as much as I enjoyed putting it together.

Feelin' Good

This is a long overdue mix of some tracks I go back to time and again.  Basically they are all just tracks that make me feel good when I listen to them...


Music to Drive to...

I've always liked driving to "house" music.  There's just something about a continuous flow of 120ish tunes that keep me going in the car.  This fact, and that recently a good friend has turned me back onto this genre, motivated me to make this mix.  Nothing fancy...but some old and new tracks that remind me of my college days driving to and from UCSB.

Self-titled and soulful no doubt with a Motown throwback vibe.  Don't let the simplicity fool's got some intricacies.


Sapient "Slump"

Hip hop artist Sapient croons his way through a wonderful band-backed album with hooks that'll make you sing in your "spaceship".

Gimme Another Break

I've been thinking about making this mix for a while and finally got around to it over "ski week break" in February.  It's an uptempo mix filled with big drums, organic sounds, and silly vocals.  In general it encapsulates some of my favorites artists like DJ Shadow & Cut Chemist, DJ Format, DJ Day, Jon Kennedy, Quantic, Wagon Christ (aka Luke Vibert), Ben Westbeech, Mo Horizons, Ursula 1000, and others.  Hit me up if you want a playlist...
