Feel Like Falling


Back in my favorite city on the planet, and damn it feels good (despite the 40 degree Fall weather). HUGE appreciation for the lovely crowds that came out and got down at the first two stops on the record release tour! There’s no better feeling than playing a set, digging in deep with music you truly love,  and seeing your friends and fam show their full support on the dancefloor. I’ve been going pretty heavy on my own music and Captain Planet related material, so I’m steering away from that today to share some stuff I’m listening to on the subway that you probably won’t hear at any of my gigs in the upcoming week. Mostly new acquisitions, I feel pretty confident you’ll be moving around (or at least squirming in your chair) by the time you get to Sammy Bananas. Then there’s a handful of chilled out tracks to bring you back down again. Don’t forget to check the rest of my tour schedule in my last post and come through if you’re in the vicinity. I always get a big kick from meeting digital acquaintances in the flesh.

The Juan Maclean :       Running Back To You

Fool’s Gold :       I'm In Love (Poolside Remix)

Tinashe :       Vulnerable (Pomo Remix)

Mixtape Riot Radio #011


After a long hiatus, I’m back with another 60min edition of MTR Radio, up now on BrooklynRadio.com. You won’t find any Grammy winners on the tracklist (oh wait, except for big winner NILE RODGERS!!!), but that definitely doesn’t mean this isn’t top tier material. Focusing mainly on favorites from 2013, as well as a few brand new goodies, this mix is a bit more on the mellow side than most previous ones, but it’s still far from sleepy. If you happen to be reeling in the aftermath of a polar vortex, let this be your soundtrack as you dethaw with a hot beverage, while lying on a sheep skin rug by the fire. Featuring music from Disclosure, Mayer Hawthorne, Big Data, The Internet, Jungle, Zero 7, Quantic and more.

Full tracklist and MP3 download available here

Tiny Cheerleaders

Everyone needs a little extra support now and then. From your homies, your significant other, your family, your pet, or even in the form of this little nugget of sweetness pictured above (also the cover art from an EP by Jungle– clearly she’s their biggest fan). I haven’t fathered any children thus far, but when I do, I will most definitely be getting them purple Adidas track suits and record players. Let’s also remember to give credit to the wonderful DJ’s of the world who give us support in the form of much needed new (and old) music. Sorry if that sounds like I’m patting myself on the back, really I’m just giving props because almost all of today’s tunes have been stolen from other DJ’s playlists. Tell a friend to tell a friend and let the spreading continue…

Big Data :       Dangerous
dirty dirty bassline. The kind of rock that I like.

Mystery Skulls :       Brainsick
basement produced electro pop

Class Actress :       Careful What You Say
trippy indy synth pop

Janet Jackson :       If (Kaytranda Remix)
sidechain compression done right on this soulful stepper’s cut

Bobby :       More Than Just A Friend
yet another project from maestro Robin Hannibal

Psapp :       Wet Salt
no clue, but I dig it.

Thomas Dybdahl :       This Love Is Here To Stay
Norwegian folk soul, perfect for lounging on a sheepskin rug in front of a fireplace, wineglass in hand, spooning your naked loved one.

Jungle :       The Heat &       Drops
understated psychedelic alt soul (with a dope accompanying music video)

Barnaby :       Fresh Made Lemonade
smoother than silk, make your girl forget Drake type of ish

John Mayer :       I Don't Trust Myself (With Loving You)
when I heard this song I had no clue who it was and that helped me get beyond the extremely douchey rep that this dude has. Maybe I’m an old man for loving this, but I consider it modern day yacht-rock done right.
