4th Fridays Anniversary Hiphop Mix (vinyl)
Celebrating one year of 4th Fridays at 4th St. Vine. Quick moving hip hop mix navigating through classics, over and underground.
Event Sampler (vinyl) -Soul / Funk
This event sampler was originally made to hand out to owners of bars and clubs. That's why it's only a half-hour long, but it's a half-hour well spent, nonetheless. From the first song by Erma Franklin (Aretha Franklin's sister) to the Bee Gees at the end, this mix is something to move to.
DYING TIME IS HERE/(prem∆ture buri∆l) (vinyl) -Halloween inspired, dark HipHop
Time to die, children. Meticulously combing through records to find the perfect lines and sounds to scratch in, I worked to maintain a Halloween theme. You'll be lucky to make it through this one alive!
I Love You SO (vinyl) -Downtempo, Electronic, Cosmic Love
Immerse yourself in that which you are already immersed. Shot out to Anandamide for sponsoring the packaging and distribution of this mix.
Jazz Cats & Others: For Jazz Cats & Others (vinyl) -Jazz & Soul
Take those shoes off before listening to this one. Miles, Mingus, and Marvin hold you down all within the first few minutes. That can't be bad.
Uma Noite com Carolina (vinyl) -Soft Samba & Bossa Nova
I spent the day planning every portion of the night I would spend with Carolina. When I showed up to her door on that summer night in Rio, she had ideas of her own. "You cannot plan for love", she said, "let us be free and see where the night takes us." We spent the night eating, drinking, running along the beach, and dancing with street musicians into the dawn. Then I never saw Carolina again.
Motus Animi Continuus (vinyl) -Meditation/spiritual
This mix was performed with 3 turntables playing at once. It is perhaps, the mix I hold dearest to my heart as I had the most magical time putting this one together. I've been long planning to do a follow up.
Rasta Liv 'Pon Di Mountain (vinyl) -Reggae
My friend walked up to this dude with dreds and asked, "Hey, are you rasta?" The dude said yes. To which my friend replied, "No you're not. Rasta lives in the mountains." These are just some jams for those of us living at sea level.
Mash-UPs & Scratch-UPs (vinyl) -see Title
Exactly as the name implies, here are a bunch of live mash ups and scratch ups.
Forca Bruta (vinyl) -Samba Soul/Hip Hop/Latin Dance
Afro-brazilian grooves that eventually move into latin fire.
Tropicalia e Alegria (vinyl) -Tropicalia/Samba Rock
Some of my favorite tunes to come out of the Tropicalia movement. This late 60s movement was an artistic response to the long-standing dictatorship in Brazil that ranged from visual art to literature, from theater to music.
