Regularly Scheduled Daydreaming

brigit

A long hot weekend up in the mountains, meant a very very long hot road trip getting there and back. Truth is, you can’t be mad when you’ve got good company and new music to listen to. I like to think of my extended daydreams on planes, trains & highways as an essential part of the creative process. Maybe I wasn’t scheming a global takeover, so much as how to pass the slow RV pulling a boat on a trailer, but I know there’s some head-clearing benefit nonetheless.

Sola Rosa :       Promise (ft. Oliver Daysoul)
great single from Sola’s latest album. Check the top notch Tall Black Guy remix as well

Booker T. Jones :       Sound The Alarm (ft. Mayer Hawthorne) &       All Over The Place (ft. Luke James)
The legendary organ maestro is back on STAX, and sounding surprisingly fresh (with help from the superproducer Avila Bros). The whole album is worth a listen, but the title track with Mayer is the standout for sure.

Superhumanoids :       So Strange
fans of Little Dragon will find lots to like on this new album.

GANZ :       Can't Stop
definitely taking cues from Hudson Mohawk, but I’m not mad at the epic-ness.

Atropolis :       Reza Por Mi (ft. Lido Pimienta)
my Cumba Mela homie has come supremely correct with this excellent full-length. The whole record is great, but this song (and the accompanying video directed by another old friend) makes me smile every time.

Kon :       Blow Me A Kiss (ft. Amy Douglas)
Very glad to see this legendary NYC crate digger and DJ step up as a producer. Deep disco is the name of the game on this one.

Franz Ferdinand :       Stand On The Horizon (Todd Terje Extended Mix)
for me the song starts at 5:30, but there’s a lot of cool moments throughout, as you’d expect from this cool collabo.

LBCK :       Call My Name
mid-tempo slinky funk thats perfect for early evening head bobbing. More from these Long Beach kids.

FKJ :       So Much To Me &       Instant Need
a couple new disco-fied winners from French Kiwi Juice.

Lorde :       Bravado &       Biting Down
it’s hard to be mad at this 16-yr-old chantuese when she’s putting out songs this good. I’m sure there’s some producer big wig mastermind behind a lot of the material, but her voice remains kinda undeniable.

Shigeto :       Miss U &       Detroit Part 1
deep organic spacey beats from this Midwest Ghostly dude.

    Thinman hit the nail on the head…all of them are top drawer

    FKJ is late night Viagra, and Booker T & Sola Rosa are bang on the money as always

Mixtape Riot Radio: #010

Please excuse the lag in posts… hopefully this latest podcast, packed to the brim with goodies, will make up for it. As always, it’s an eclectic aural exploration. Travelling from South American future dub, to headnod-inducing indy soul, to global bass and funky house- I tried to connect the dots between a wide range of fresh new sounds in classic Mixtape Riot style. New songs from Tremor, Mayer Hawthorne, Misun, Banks, Atropolis, Uproot Andy, Superhumanoids and more. Don’t let the “back to school” sales scare you, it’s STILL SUMMER in Mixtape Riot-land.

Full tracklist and free download available here

Sick Beats (To Cure The Flu)

Came down with a nasty bug this week. Might be connected to my overwhelming disgust at the Zimmerman not guilty verdict, but this ain’t a politics blog, so I’ll spare you my rant. Instead, I’ve decided to share with you this heavy dose of new heaters in between consecutive nose blowing fits and coughing convulsions. Lots of latin & global bass tunes in the playlist, also partly inspired by the fun-as-hell Tormenta Tropical party that I did last Friday alongside DJ Theory, Oro11 & Paul Devro. Gotta keep my energy up for 4 more consecutive nights of DJ-ing this week, so hopefully these joints will keep me on my feet… If you want to see more bizarre pics of insanely groomed dogs, check out the spread by Ren Netherland up now at Juxtapoz.

Thornato :       Gaita Gaita
serious anthem alert from my NYC homie Thor. Check out the full compilation on ZZK where this tune can be found.

Ondatropica :       El Caiman Y El Gallinazo (Atropolis Remix)
dopeness runs in the blood, ’cause this one from Atropolis (Thor’s cousin and Cumba Mela compatriot) is also seriously fiya

So Shifty :       Rude Gal (ft. Paco Mendoza) &       Rumba (Peligrosa Remix)
I’m loving these guys‘ productions and am very much looking forward to an album in the future…

Los Cojolites :       Luna Negra (Uproot Andy Remix)
Kabaka International :       Mangala Special (Uproot Andy Remix)
from another of my NY friends (and Que Bajo co-founder), Andy murked this whole worldwide mix. Cop the EP for FREEEEE

Novalima :       Diablo (Xacosa Remix) &       Mamaye (Seiji Remix)
taken from this dope new EP on Wonderwheel. Get it.

Octa Push :       Afroinscope &       Ali Dom ft. Braima Galissa
big shouts to DJ Nadi for puttin me on to this one. Very influenced by SBTRKT, but I ain’t mad at that one bit.

Clap! Clap! :       Hold On (ft. LSWR)
&       Please Mother Rain Wash Our Souls From Human Evil
thanks due to Soundbwoy Surian for the heads up on this guy.

Elvis Crespo :       Suavemente (Kennedy Jones Trap Remix)
certified dancefloor destroyer, you have been warned.

B.Lewis & Sango      Não é Nada
Brazilian electro trap monster

L D R U :       The Tropics
space music right here. This one makes me go dumb every time.

Esto Es Candela Remix

PalenqueRMX-Cover450

Brand new official remix I did for Dutty Artz drops today as part of the excellent Palenque Records Remixed project. Rootsy Colombian folk music gets updated for the dancefloor by some of the heaviest names in global bass music (features tracks from So Shifty, Thornato, Geko Jones, Atropolis, Boima & more). I’m honored to be a part of this project, and the entire album is really top notch. Jeff Guerra wrote this highly informative article that goes into more depth about the background of Palenque music, how this album came into being, and even has interview snippets from some of the musicians involved (myself included). Also, check out the cool promo video, and please support by purchasing on iTunes if you dig the sounds!
