New mix: Exclude

deemo-exclude

I am either about to emerge from a long period of distraction, or go into one, but I’m glad the mix train is at least running on time. This is kind of a decks-clearing (ha) mix that began with me going through all the singles I really liked this year (more on that soon) and picking out the best four on the floor ones I hadn’t used in anything yet. Relatively melodic and warm by my standards, so perhaps you will break this out in holiday party season? Enjoy, and don’t go away, there will be at least one more post before the end of the year.

New old mix: Rapture

folder

Last week the Isley Brothers released a 23-cd boxed set of their RCA Victor and T-Neck (their own label) output, which includes some of the smoovest music ever made. I am fairly obsessed with ’80s Minneapolis-sounding electro R&B/funk (Prince/Cameo/etc) and have been plotting this mix for some time. I have listened to it so much I think I may already have burned out on it and have no feelings left. I am a robot. Pray for deemo. Enjoy!

With apologies/homage to John Oliver’s rant on native advertising, I titled this mix after the under-the-radar vibe of these tracks. Only one or two of them are big attention-grabbing room-fillers; the rest are slow-burners, grow-ers, subtly-getting-their-hooks-into-you-so-as-you-don’t-notice kind of tunes. Don’t sleep on the Tommy Four Seven track, and definitely don’t miss Henrik Schwarz’s funky all-noise workout. The mind boggles.
