New mix: Calling Card

Oh, but this was a fun one. It must be spring if there are this many bubbly tracks fighting for space in one mix — minds turning to knuckles-in-the-air outdoor raving and such. I’m a little late with the goods this time but I promise there will be another mix soon. Tracks are coming fast and furious, from the Stormzy album to various newcomers I’m enjoying like Tuckz. For now, enjoy, and play with the windows down.

New mix: JAWS

folder

This one is especially rugged – lots of raw, sort of distorted sounds, though there’s a nice mellow bit in the middle with the Mala single (which is gorgeous) and the SBTRKT/Jessie Ware collab. My favourite tune in here is definitely the DJ Big O remix of the BFlecha tune. I could mix a whole set of that. And don’t sleep on the Ill Blu tune either – Hyperdub just killing it with their comps lately…

Mix: Out of office.

fire-sm

Last week, from my studio on the 436th floor of the a-void.ca Communications Complex here in downtown Metropolis, I was distraught at the lack of posts around here. But then I remembered it was still technically summer so I should get off my ass and go drink something, outdoors. In the meantime I made you this mix, which was pretty easy since three of my favourite labels – Kompakt, Poker Flat and Full Pupp – have lately been kicking out the slam-dunk house and disco jams.

Check this out, and keep your eyes peeled for the return of actual writing on this site starting next week…

This mix is not new, but it’s too much fun to sit on any longer. I feel funny big-upping my own stuff, I keep hearing the kid from De La Soul Is Dead going “it’s slammin! Yo, it’s slammin!” So I dunno, here’s some free music and stuff. Enjoy.

Mix: Medium Cool

medium-cool-square

DO U LIKE MY CHEESY PHOTOSHOP TYPE SKILLZ LOL. Somehow it seemed appropriate for a mix that could be described as ‘chillout’, though not quite meeting the Yacht Rock definition of ‘smooth music’ or being ‘lounge’-worthy. Still, I’m fond of the tracks here, including the Orb taking on Primal Scream for what I’ve decided is my favourite remix of all time, and I don’t care if it is kinda… smoove. This is good Sunday morning music, but it’ll do for Friday afternoon too. Peep it.

Mix: On Road

folder

Scrub down your NYE-sozzled livers and get back out dancing. I feel like Tom Skerritt in Top Gun telling Maverick to get back in the cockpit and go shoot down some MiGs. It’s the only way, people. Throw on this brackish, dancehall/garage/grime-inspired batch of tunes beforehand, it’ll make your antennae twitch. Two opposable thumbs up.

On Road by Deejaydeemo on Mixcloud

Mix: Sweat / Sweatpants

When Nelly came out with two albums, sold separately, on the same day in 2004, it was such a colossal act of hubris that it almost defies description. It doesn’t help that, as I recall, neither one was very good or very well received.

Untitled-1

But Sweat and Suit are a testament to an ego big enough to more or less destroy a successful rapper’s career in one catastrophically grandiose gesture. And that’s why I’ve concocted my own version, the music world’s first answer-double-album: Sweat/Sweatpants.

sweat-sweatpants

One for bro-ing down in the club; one for sipping wine with a doo-rag on. Download one or both, or neither, but either way, enjoy.
