Dog Daze

Download it here

I'm in total moving mayhem but I wanted to dish this out before my computer is completely packed for my move up the street into Jamaica Plain. Another twenty minute chunk, but perhaps a departure from previous segments of the mix series, this crossfaderless mix is lifted right out of the program from two weeks ago (plus a few drops and bonus beats). It's more about matching pitches then beats, though the bpm chaos adds nicely to the August daze I'm feeling right now. It's some chill stuff, but uptempo enough to keep you awake for work or school starting next week! Good luck everyone. Track list below. Notes on last week's program in the next post.

Steve Reich - Four Organs (Ghostdad break)
Ammoncontact - Elevation
Robin Kenyatta - Reflective Silence
Four Tet - Sun Drums and Gamalon
The Sound of Feeling - Hex
Air - le soleil est pres de moi (automator remix)
J Dilla - Shouts

MFO tonight!

I'll be putting in a quick guest appearance on Nick's Radio Sandwhiches tonight at 10pm on
WMFO. The rumors that Nick and I are starting a monthly together at the Milky Way based on old school bass and freestyle are completely true. Tune in tonight for a sneak preview! We're gonna be test driving some thaangs.

You can peep out last week's Moforadio playlist here. Some tunes from the mixtapes mentioned in last week's post. That new Philly party music came from the man DJ Sega, and those DJ Q bassline riddims came courtesy of DJ Rupture (who came through the station for Rare Frequency just the other day!).

There'll be more Mofo Radio Wed. and another mixtape release by week's end I swear! For the time being hit us up on WMFO 91.5 fm tonight!

More summer mixtapes

To make up for my absence last week, check out these summer sounds to keep you going in (what should be) the August heat. We're having kind of a cold spell up here, long sleeves and the like, but all the more reason to get into some sounds from further south and imagine better weather.Been meaning to check out more soca for a while and the G13 dudes have been bringing it stateside for a minute now. This being their third edition of Caribbean Carnival tunes, the other two are also available for purchase or download. Check out volumes ONE and TWO!

We've heard from Singh before on the Bhangra tip, now he's taking on Go-Go. I've been looking for a solid wrangling of Go-Go beats in mixtape form as well so this is a total bonus and some laid back beats for your end of summer soundtrack. His Good to Go-Go mix is a promo for the above night where it seems that DC sound made it's way down to hotlanta for a bit.

And join me tomorrow night for more sound. We might listen to some of the above, some new 12's, some new philly party tunes, and some UK baseline rhythms. Till tomorrow!

WZBC Desi in the Boston Globe!

Props to WZBC's very own Komal Trivedi on her feature in the Boston Globe (with a nice audio piece on the page as well). If you're not an early riser, here's your reason to become one and catch her show Bricklane Beats every Thursday 7 to 9am, featuring the best in South Asian vibes both modern and classic. If that's way too early for you Bricklane Beats is also featured along with other fine public radio programing at

As for Mofo Radio, check out last week'd playlist here. Whole lot of hip hop, old school, breaks, and a brief DnB breakdown in there somewhere. Tunes from the Vampisoul catalogue and Ultimate Beats and Breaks archive at the top of the show. New MIA towards the end of the show. Her new album drops Aug. 20, and while I hate hype, from the tracks I've heard it's gonna be a crazy one.

Quick mention of some new tracks from multi-instrumentalist J.D. Meachem. We heard "Long Lost," direct from his myspace in last week's show. He's got some other new tracks up there as well (most with lyrics), and looks to be performing soon in a south side near you so stay tuned for that!

There will unfortunately be no Mofo Radio this evening (the 15th). Summertime travels have put me out of the town for a few days. Back in action next Wednesday though so see me then!

Hip House Styleeee

Download it here

In effort to unearth more random ass vinyl I have laying around, the Ghostdad Summer Mix Series continues. Another 20 minute ass kicker featuring some dug up hip house tunes, vocal mixes for the most part intact. Also a few vocal house and dance tunes in there for good measure. Here's the playlist:

Doug Lazy - Let the rhythm pump
The Program - Desire ("Do It" Mix)
Loose Bruce - Feelin' Moody
Mantronix - Don't You Want More
Orchestra 45 - Ma Mellow
J.D. - Shake It Groove
House Master Baldwin f. Paris Grey - Don't Lead Me
Jomanda - Make My Body Rock (Feel It)
Freeez - I.O.U.

And in case you missed it, grab part one: Up To The Minute

I hope to do a few more of these little modular mixes before summers end so stay tuned for those. If you're in the Boston area tonight check out Color with resident Joseph Colbourne. I'll sadly be out of town so go dance it up for me. See you on air this coming Wednesday, if not sooner!
