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.

Back East

freedom tower

Still feels like home: waiting for late night subways in sweltering heat, on platforms covered in the black funk of decades past, walking into art museums for the free AC, stumbling upon dope concerts in the park, the curious wonders of endless stoop sales. It was less than a handful of days, but I’m very glad I got to soak in some Summer in the city. Huge thanks to my man DJ Cato for putting together a great rooftop poolside bash in Soho on Sunday. It was amazing to catch up with so many old friends while taking in the gorgeous view- with a firework finish no less! Now I’m back out in the hinterland of New Hampshire for the 4th and beyond, but I had to give a little update with some new heaters I’ve been keeping in rotation. Also, big up to my homegirl in Manila DJ Christina Badkiss whose crates I jacked for a bunch of today’s tunes, expect a featured mix from her very soon!

Starfucker :       While I'm Alive catchy pop joint that verges on cheese, but keeps one foot on the funky side

Tuxedo :       So Good &       Do It new Mayer Hawthorne / Jake One collabo that is truly heaven sent. 80’s g-funk done right.

Bondax :       Gold (Moon Boots Remix) hipster house on the smooth side

Disclosure :       Help Me Lose My Mind &       When A Fire Starts To Burn without a doubt, one of the best albums of the year

Todd Terje :       Strandbar (Samba Version) so so good. New Summer anthem from the Nordic extended-groove meistro. The disco version of this tune is not to be missed either.

Stimming :       Funkworm tech house with a whole lot of flavor

James Fox :       Close Your Eyes beware, deep trance state is likely to occur around the 3.5 minute mark

ETML :       Bind Me funky UK bizniz from this young cat

Mark de Clive-Lowe ft. Omar¬†:       Get Started (Full Crate Remix) great bouncey rework from Full Crate

Wretch 32 ft. Shaka :       Blackout not sure what to call this? Dancehall, UK funky, bass, hip hop… how bout just “good music”
