Giessel came by the studio to drop some sellections from his crates this past Wednesday. A big ass reminder that we're playing Beat Research together this Monday at Enormous Room in Cambridge. Listen to the first hour of Giessel's set for a preview of what he'll be bringinya:
Completely accurate playlisthere. We chilled and jammed the rest of the show as well so that should all be on there. As for my own preview, I'll be giving it you Monday when I drop the first installment of what will be a summer of (short) mixtapes! I've been back to hording vinyl again and as an exercise in my obsession with 12"s I'm gonna try and bring a series of short mixes with fresh themes over the course of the summer. Let's see how many I can get done! The first one's called "Up To The Minute."
But let's save all that for Monday. For now, take the weekend to digest the Giessel and Colbourne audio from these last two absolutely killer weeks!
Other shouts for this weekend include openings here and here. Then J. Jonah and George Kush at a Chinatown loft party tonight I might drop some music at (although I have no idea where yet), and a visit to their showSunday Night Shakedown on 'RBB Sunday. All leading of course up to the pinnacle event and mixtape series kickoff Monday at Beat Research! It's gonna be a busy one.
