Mixtape Riot Menu


Just Beats

DJ Center (Left) and Mophono (Right)

Here’s a couple new joints from DJ/producers who I’ve been following for a minute now. Mophono is the alias of Bay Area DJ Centipede. I remember hearing some of his remixes on Soul-Sides a while ago, but this new EP he’s just put out on Bastard Jazz is a big step forward. The beat sounds like a drunken boxing match between baritone sax and drumkit. “Bumps” is right, this track will leave a weak listener bruised. Next up is a smooth bossa-hop number from NYC’s own DJ Center. It comes from his very solid debut album called “Everything In Time” (peep a nice little ‘making of’ video here and then BUY IT). I’m trying to work out a remix of this one, so stay tuned. Finally, just got my hands on one of my favorite Outkast instrumentals, one of my all-time favorite instrumentals period, and figured why not share it? Organized Noize circa ’98 = unfuckwitable (**EDIT, this track was actually NOT produced by Organized Noize! Peep the comments). Also, for a little extra Mophono flavor, check out this free mix that the man put together to help promote the new EP- highly recommended!

Mophono :       Bumps

DJ Center :       Center's Groove

Outkast :       Spottieottiedopaliscious (Instrumental)

    ooooooh… nice tracks. DIGGIN Center’s Groove. Definitely gonna have to check his album.

    damn I got schooled. Turns out Organized Noize produced pretty much the whole album EXCEPT for Spottieottiedopalicious. That track was produced by Big Boi & Andre!!!
