New mix: Wait For Me

folder

Lyfe, LOL amirite? Big changes lately for me, hence the lengthy gap between mixes. But you don’t care about that, you just want beatzzzzzzz. (As you should.) This one was prepped a while ago but is finally ready now, for your hooptie’s 5-disc CD changer with the windows down. And keep your eyes peeled for the next mix, it’s a scorcher.

New mix: Exercise

exercise-square

It’s January! And I didn’t give you a year end list, because really, year end lists are like fruitcake – they always just show up unannounced and unrequested. Instead I give you a mix, though the title may be misleading. It’s not really what you might call gym-appropriate; in my mind, it was about Exercise because a) Kelela has made that word a double-entendre that I heartily enjoy, and b) this isn’t the easiest mix for your poor ears, but then, no pain no gain. It’s grimy, noisy in spots (hey Russell Haswell), melodic in hardly any spots, but a good workout in terms of exploring the dusty corners of the grime and electronic world that might not get too many rinses in clubland yet that deserve attention nonetheless. Enjoy.

New Mix: In Country

deemo-incountry

Post-Polaris, I’ve been pretty occupied with some family stuff, so the writing is naturally sparse. As is the listening, I must confess – aside from a few standouts, my year-end list will be tilted towards the beginning of the year I think. But! Mixing is always a bit of relief from what ails, hence this one. Turn it up and enjoy.

New mix: Inside Out

folder

Polaris is done! No word of a lie, being on the grand jury this year was one of the best things that has ever happened to me in my music critic career. I’m still floating. I am also way behind in any semblance of being up on new music, so consider this mix remedial singles listening. Grime seems to surge in fits and starts, but no other electronic genre sets the neurons firing like it does, even if Wiley is revisiting past glories. Plenty of heat to go around. Ipman! That is all.

The Polaris-ization of my listening time has almost come to a close, which means hopefully more posts on this here blog. So many great records to gab about this year – Pixelord, Kamasi Washington, Earl Sweatshirt among them. In the meantime, you have this mix, which will sound nice – okay, vaguely threatening, but still fun – coming out of your subwoofer. Enjoy.

Mix: Buss it!

deemo - buss it

This is a fun one. Lots of bouncy grime and du… okay, we don’t call it that anymore. But some lively non-4/4 beats and hot bars from the likes of Novelist and Redders (on the Sam Binga cut). Something to put a spring in your step. It’ll be a lot more fun than the server shenanigans I endured getting it online. I digress. Enjoy this and keep your eyes peeled for more record reviews soon.
