Mixtape Riot Menu


International Stylee

It’s my country’s B-day, the neighbors are going crazy trying to see how many car alarms they can set off with firecrackers, and I’m heading to seek refuge from the 85 degree heat in a friend’s pool. Tonight also happens to be the first release party for MY NEW EP (there’s another one later this week- any excuse to party is good right?). So if you feel up to dancing after the fireworks, head over to the super classy Bar Marmont in West Hollywood. For the occaision, I’ve been going back to some of my oldest mixes, reminding myself of songs I used to play all the time. Here’s a nice handful of those forgotten classics to keep you moving while the BBQ sauce marinades.

And of course, if you’re a fan of the gumbo funk, then go get yourself a beautiful vinyl copy (I suppose digital is acceptable too) of the latest from Captain Planet: The Ningané EP
