Summer blazes on, burning through my precious time and leaving a trail of ashes under which my hazy memories dwell. I know I’m doing a lot, but if you ask me tomorrow, I will probably have the hardest time remembering today. Gotta up my ginko biloba intake and start doing memory games or something. One thing I do know, is what I’m feelin’ right now. Today it happens to be a high grade selection of tropical dancefloor bizniz. Hopefully you can pass some of your precious minutes wrapped up in a dutty wine to these goodies while sipping on something nice and cold, even if you should forget all about it tomorrow. Big Shouts to Geko Jones & Cato who hooked me up with a few of these tunes.

Got inspired after playing the original on repeat and wanting to mix it into my hip hop sets. Couldn’t get an acapella, so bootleg it is. If you haven’t made it out to the weekly Saturday night party that I throw with my brother from another, Canyon Cody, then let this be extra incentive. We generally devote a hefty portion of the mix to good music with big ass 808 bass like this. We’re working on a full EP of remixes & edits to celebrate the Planet Rock 1 year anniversary in September. Stay tuned. Big shout out to PrefixMag for the early shine too!
I met Ms. Christina Badkiss at a cool lil spot in Manila where, after just a few minutes of hearing her spin, I knew immediately that she was my type of DJ. Mixing seamlessly between funky breaks, soulful house, hip hop, broken beat & bass tunes, she clearly had a keen sense of what works on the dancefloor. It barely even surprised me when an impromptu B-Boy cypher broke out- headspins, windmills and all. To complete the picture, Ms. Badkiss would make sure to sneak out of the DJ booth at every available opportunity to bust some dance moves herself, which is something I can relate to 100%. Since then, we’ve stayed in touch over email, and she continues to hit me up with dope new tunes that I often end up sharing here on the blog. Getting her to record a guest mix was just the next logical step. On “Still Waters Run Deep” you can hear some of her soulful house selections- minimal, simple, and deep- which make a perfect soundtrack for chilling, or for uprocking, depending on your mood. Be sure and check out her soundcloud page for more mixes from her (in a range of different styles), and if you’re in the Philippines, check out one of her many events or parties. Thank me later!

Stunning as always! You do a great service – thank you! Only know the 70’s Angolan stuff – which is addictive – but definitely doesn’t have auto-tuning..
