Hi there friends. Last post I was talking about how I was hoping life would become stable again, and it did. Unfortunately it has came and left already and I haven’t managed to get too much done. I’m back to being a drifter again and as weird as it seems I’m more driven to do shit when I don’t have the ability to. Imagine that. Fuck this convoluted bullshit that I keep building around me. I’m searching out some new tunes for you lovely people again and I’m in a weird mood, so get ready for the next crayola color to hit the pack.
I’m fittin’ to start you all off with some Baile Funk sounds. A group that I’ve had in my ears for a while has finally released some new material. Bonde do Role who are of one of my favorite labels, Mad Decent, are some real fire. If you get the chance listen to some tunes from their 2007 release With Lazers. First tune is a cut they did with Ce’Cile called “Brazilian Boys”. Following is a mini-mix from the group.
Keeping with the Baile Funk theme for the next one is a duo that mashes up electro and hip hop tunes with Baile Funk acapellas and they are surprisingly pretty fun, plus you can’t beat cover art featuring the track’s name written over some topless chick’s breasts. Two mashups and a mini-mix coming your way from Drunk Disco.
Moving on to the next round of sounds we are bringing you a couple selections from a cat that goes by the name of KidLogic. Shit is original and wild. First track is a remix of Beastie Boys’ “Intergalactic” (RIP MCA). His take on it is very spacey and kind of has a chopped and screwed feel. Following that tune will be one titled “Pump It Up”. I think you can get the picture…
Alright, I’m breaking you into some sounds from a label I have literally fallen in love with. I haven’t really found a tune release through Pelican Fly that I haven’t liked and they have managed to get me turned on to a brand new round of artists. Belgium does it right.
First of the group I’m showing you is called Cosmic Revenge. His deep sounds and fast hats do it for me. Hell, listen and see for yourself.
Next from Pelican Fly is one of my brand new favorites. He goes by the name of Mister Tweeks and damn is this shit fresh. Listen while the listening is listenable. (P.S. I’m giving you a tape of his to listen in on too!)
Alright, finally I’m going to leave you with a few tracks from a cat that is on his grind from the previously mentioned label. His name is Sinjin Hawke and he is working with people from all over. From the guys in the Club Chevel crew I mentioned in my last post to the folks like DJ Sliink who’s rocking that Trap sound. Just enjoy whats stacked up on this one.
That about wraps up everything for this round of Sounds. I’m not making any promises anymore about keeping up with anything. I know I need to keep up with this shit and I do as I can. One day life will be simple. Until then I’m going to keep floating about and gathering inspiration so I can unload it all on you mother fuckers before I find a way to become a ghost again. I’ll stop sounding like I’ve lost my mind and get out of here. Until next time you beautiful people!
Alright, I know there are a few of you sexy ass mother fuckers out there who actually pay attention to the dope ass tunes I love to share to you all. I’m currently in the middle of a move and my personal computer’s hard drve failed on me, so here I am using a barrowed comp for a few to bang out a quick post out to you all.
Lets get into this real quick. I have some major love for some of these Texas Club producers out there. Shit is fire. The gentleman that I am presenting to you today goes by the name of Beaches. First track is a remix of Climax that is fuuun. Penetrate your ear drums.
Next tune the Doctor is prescribing is another from Beaches titled Be Ur Girl. He keeps with them “uh” “yep” samples through it. It gets me hyphy.
Gonna give you a tape from the man as well. You deserve it. 22min mix from 3 months ago. Relax.
Alright, what do we have up next? I just stumbled over these guys. They are called 2 Deep and they are out of LA. This track caught my attention because of the breaks they have worked into that are just naasty. Its a remix of TON!C’s Bounce. Give it a listen for yourself.
I’m bringing you some work from an artist that I already posted about before. Myd is from the Club Cheval crew in France. First you’re getting a mix then you get a remix of his. I’m not going to load you up with why I dig his work and why you need to check the rest of the crew, listen and look, find out for yourself! ;)
Last little bit I’m leaving you all with is from a cat I’ve been following for a little bit. His association with Mad Decent is was first made me familiar with him. Here is a few new cuts coming from the man.
Fuck you, I lied. Seriously one last one. I accidentally came across this B-more Club fun shit. Murder Mark, I just found you and I like what you’ve got going! Check this ouuuuut!
That’s seriously all I’ve got for you all today. Hopefuly I can get a few more done here once I get moved into this new pad. Keeping my fingers crossed life will be back to stability in the new 1.5 weeks! Keep on getting wild folks!
First new mix in over a year. Been sitting on my comp for way too long. Hope you all get down to it!
Well, that doctor is returning to practice. Life is starting to assemble itself back together some how and I’m adamant to get back to stirring up some trouble. I’m seeing more and more that the events going on in my life aren’t anything close to normal, and that most of the shit that’s happening to me feels like it’s been ripped straight out of a tall tale of some sort. Compare me to Paul Bunyan. Anyway, here’s some tunes coming at you that I’ve dug here lately. If you’ve been a follower of my rants and what I do, you all have Mike Joe out of Brooklyn to thank for me making this post today. If he wouldn’t have sent me a message telling me he missed me keeping up with this blog, it could have been another 3 months before I posted anything on here. (To be honest, the double digits kinda scared me…)
This tune here is a sick ass remix of Justice’s Stress in the styling of Jerseycore/Club. The original tune has such a history with me and crew out here (staring at a plasma ball, in the pitch dark, on some crazy ass shit with this track blasting). Anyway, no need to go into a crazy fucking story. Dude’s name is Nadus, he has some killer Juke on his soundcloud, check it out.

Next on the cuts is a little more of the Jersey Club sound, this time from DJ K Millz. Im diggin this sound and the shit’s bound to make your booty clap. If it doesn’t, there is something wrong with you. Dropping you two tunes from this dude, get wild.

Now on deck is a few tracks and a mix from Brenmar. Dude’s a Chi-town native, and if you hadn’t heard of this him yet, you’ve been sleeping. He has some sick sounds ranging from house to R&B. First of the cuts is a collab with Brenmar, Ghosts on Tape, and from the illustrious Club Cheval crew - Canblaster. Afterwards is an example of Brenmar’s remix work and then a mixtape that the man has recently dropped. Get familiar.

Changing the pace up a little now, I’m throwing you a little French House flavoring from Darius. Now, I’m going to be honest. I’m assuming (and we know assuming makes you a jackass) that Darius is one half of the French House duo Cherokee. Either way, the first tune is Darius, second will be from Cherokee which is a remix of a Daft Punk choon that’s pretty smooth, followed by yet another mixtape so you can get a feel for their set. Whoever the fuck the tunes are belonging to, they’re good enough to let them put some love in your ear drums. Enjoy.

This is a moment I’m going to take to throw in a real quick plug for a label that if you also haven’t heard of, you have had to been six feet under and recently resurrected. The Ninja Tune label has had soooooooo many great artists on it for so long that its ridiculous. They celebrated their 20 years of existence back in 2010 with a massive compilation release (and if you don’t have that you need to snatch it quick) and decided to celebrate International Women’s Day with a set compilation for free download on their soundcloud featuring some amazing female vocals that I can only assume were produced by a woman to follow the theme. 6 tracks for free DL, scoop and make love to this shit!

I’m going to wrap you up with this massive post with a few deliciously smooth tracks from Jacques Greene. This guy can really get the mood right and you need to check out some more of his work if you haven’t heard of him yet. I’m feeling it, and so should you. His stuff has always been soulful and sexy. First tune is a recent upload of his, second is a remix of Motivation in his style of tasty R&B. I’ll drop you one more (snagged the 3 most recent on his soundcloud - if you want more, you may have to do some digging) that is a remix of Radiohead’s Lotus Flower. I know that there is some Radiohead fans out there and I have a feeling that you’ll enjoy this too. And of course, since I’ve given you all mixes to check on prior to this, I have to give you all one from this amazing producer as well. This time a radio mix from Rinse (a station I recommend checking as well). Groove on it, baby.

Alright, I hooked you all up with a good amount of tracks for you enjoy and get into. I encourage you all to keep digging and looking for more stuff to listen to from these artists and stuff similar to them. I’ll do my best to not take such a long time to post up more for you all to get down to. I also should be releasing a new mixtape that will be in the style of some of the stuff you’ve heard on here today. Keep up with the music, send your love to the people you care about and respect, let me know what you think about this post, and most importantly… be yourself, think freely, and program your own life — no one else should be doing it for you.
