New York's golden Cumbia boys, and the team behind the Que Bajo parties in Brooklyn, Uproot Andy and Geko Jones are on tour as we speak! Mostly hitting up the south and west coasts, including a stop in the deep south. Grab their free remix of Manuelita to see what you might be in for if you catch one of these guys live. Highly recommended! Full tour dates are posted atRemezcla, but I have it on good authority that Uproot Andy is headed back from Argentina and straight over to the ICA for their next Experiment party! Latin/German beats should be interesting. And homeboy Sammy Bananas remix of Lady Gaga blazing it up over on the Hype Machine. Too explicit for airplay but it's great to see this once DIYremixer and DJ turned small label sensation get some mainstream love and grander internet recognition. Go get em Sammy! Note: after I reading the wikipedia on Lady Gaga I think I get it now.
If you tuned in tonight, you didn't hear me. Kern's now holds down the NCP2 slot every other Wednesday. Put the word out on the air last week but am late to the blog on it so sorry for if the switch is seems sudden. My reasons for reducing the number of radio shows in the month are many and include but are not limited to the amount of live DJing I've been doing, partially for fun and partially to pay the bills. I've also got some other projects bubbling in the ways of original music and mixes that may come to fruition in the near future. In the meantime I'll be with you every other week and watch Fully Fitted for everything else!
I find myself asking. Fall weather is already here but the last few (and only) weeks of summer heat were packed with some beach and travel time so I'm thankful for that. Sorry to have missed you though! Still since the last post there are twoprogramsplaylisted you could have been sleeplessly mulling over.
This BullionDilla v. Pet Sounds mash/mix/what have you has made plenty of blog rounds but it's good beats so I wanna offer it here for anyone who missed out. We heard Dilla beats meeting a cover of "God Only Knows" in one of those programs. You can grab the whole thing here while it lasts! Or a quick google search should turn up an active link.
This Hieroglyphic Being guy is kind of blowing my mind lately as well. His tunes all sound like jacking house made with only the general midi sound set played through a practice amp, and I'm way into it. Check the video above to get more in depth. Relatedvideos reveal how he may actually be carrying on a longer lineage of afro jacking space house known only to those still riding the cosmic pathways between Detroit and Chicago. The track we heard "The Future Shock," is featured on the Dope Jams 3 Year Anniversary EP, limited to 100 copies only!
Okay theres are my lazy internet links for the last few weeks. Quick thanks to everyone who hosted me these past few while I was out of town, from my family and girlfriend's houses, to the couple of nights I played in New York and Philly that I somehow avoided blogging, good times had all around. Things are sure to pick up at the station these next few weeks starting with all new Mofo Radio Wednesday usual time. Got new vinyl and CD digs so be sure to tune in!
