Through The Night (Softly)

(October 28th, 2011)

Here's a mixtape for anyone that likes jazz or wants to get into it more. Ranging from 60s Blue Jazz to Nu Jazz of the late 90s and early 00s. From the likes of George Benson, Miles Davis, John Coltrane, The Cinematic Orchestra, David Axelrod, Lonnie Liston Smith, Ray Barbee and Mattson 2, Gammas, Deodato, Charlie Parker, Bob James, The Brooklyn Funk Essentials, Herbie Hancock, Orchestre National De Jazz, Skalpel, Pharaoh Sanders, and Dave Brubeck Quartet.

This is a massive mixtape, especially since I'm not longer thinking these will ever be put on to a cd-r I've been making them longer than 80mins. Enjoy.

Drop Trou

(September 4th, 2011)

A mix that implies exactly that, drop it, rip them draws off now, oh, wait, before you do that, stumble with your pants half off over to your computer, your mp3 player, your phone, whatever you got plugged into a set of speakers, and press play (after locating this mix). Let the moment take you, let these sounds be the soundtrack to whatever you're doing with whoever you're doing.

Music by Atlas Sound, Daft Punk, Bill Wells, Bibio, Talk Talk, Jazzanova, Doves, DJ Shadow, Bent, DJ Krush, Cinematic Orchestra, Royksopp, and much mo' mo' moan.

Say, why don't you, "Drop Trou", to this.

Yes, drift is right, drift is the way. Expect nothing alarming, nothing to make you run faster, but expect something to help you sleep, relax, chill, whether on an airplane flying to some island in the middle of the pacific or a subway train going to work, this mix will help you settle down and take a breather. I haven't made a mix like this, usually weeding in ambient tracks here and there, using them as hidden well before bringing things back up to the lively surface. No, this puppy is a solid ambient vacation, taking some of my favorite in the genre and throwing a time-less vessel of over eighty minutes into the mix. Dig in.

Dark Dark Crazy

(July 26, 2011)

No problem right now with making mixtapes, in fact, check back soon to check out some more. This is full of good stuff, I think you'll it, and the next couple.
From what I remember it starts off with a bang, it holds this pace for a while, then climaxes, and the mix goes into a mellow slow-going pace for the second half. This mix is longer than a cd-r, if you have been burning them for a roadtrip, better bring the ipod on this one. And the next for that matter.

Soundtrack To Summer v4

(June 26th, 2011)


For it is the summer, for we have a soundtrack!


Each other, for we have a soundtrack (to embrace each other to or with)!


Take this feed, eat it with your ears, get down with the boogie, boogie this soundtrack!

Music For Warmer Weather V2

(April 15th, 2011)

Yet another. But not just another. Here's the second installment of an on-going series of mixtapes that come out for the Spring season of mixtape goers.

As same as last year (well, not entirely the same), this mix will take you on a journey that doesn't just occupy one genre or theme, but travels to a series of islands of sound, and like the title entices, this is music for warmer weather. So hopefully this keeps you warm (or warmer) on those cool spring nights with the sounds of Bonobo, Toro Y Moi, Junip, Pandit, Yellowbirds, The High Llamas, Laura Veirs, Taken by Trees, Department of Eagles, Memoryhouse, Mr. Scruff, Akron/Family, Secret Cities, The Bees, Bill Callahan, Quantic & His Combo, and more! Yes, more!

Enjoy the warmer weather.

(February 17th, 2011)

I want you to close your eyes, forget about the snow outside, forget how miserable or delightful it is outside, imagine through your windows is not a city, a town, and people walking around with too many clothes on, but that there is somewhere warm, perhaps blazing, with wavy air from the heat-heat-heat. This isn't music for warmer weather part two, this is for the last stretch of winter, when we are mad as hell and we are not going to take it anymore. Filled with sounds that can only exist on those moon-filled summer evenings, songs of summertime traveling, and places that do not exist in the real world. Let your mind trip, trip, trip.
