Grace Under Pressure

(Grace Under Pressure, October 12, 2007)


There's a definitive place for each of these mixes. With each one, a mark of movement through music and through time, and along the way there are certain people, key figures, who resonate with melody and rhythm.

Infinite Moments

d o w n l o a d: For relaxing times, make it*

There are moments that seem to last forever, whether it is being lost with good company, or time spent in a particular space. Your mind seems to escape from a familiar notion of time for a moment that feels, at the time, endless, or rather, infinite. I've had a few of these, and the word infinite moment is now just a memory, but the feeling still resonates today, as time carries on how it always does; the clicking of the seconds, the hour knowingly passing, and the day ending very much the same as yesterday. Bring me back to yesterday for a moment, bring me back with the sounds, and images of those moments that still last, in mind, in crater of the past, to fill me with wonder and hope. Infinite moments not because they have passed, but infinite moments because they will happen again, and again. (repeat)

(Since You)

(July 3rd, 2009)

Download me, baby

This is part two of my "going to Hawai'i" mixtapes. This one is a real special one for me, it was the only album we ever had in the jeep for my two-day stay on the island of Moloka'i. It filled my head with what my eyes were thinking of the landscape, an adventurous and an ever-changing landscape. This is also the last (and tenth in a line) of a collection of mixtape I made for a dear friend.

Escape Artists

(March 10th, 2009)

Oh, you know you really wanna (download me)

I got into a conversation recently with a friend about Hawai'i, and it got me missing it real hard. So for this week and the next I'm posting mixtapes that I made while waiting to leave this slice of earth for another slice of earth I call h.o.m.e. Hopefully, these Hawai'ian getaway mixtapes give you something warm to put the mind while it sucks outside (and potentially, and unfortunately, in your place of residence). Hawai'i is waiting for you...
