Me with Herve - summertime in CP

Here's some soulful house business from Herve - a DJ I've spun with a couple times over the years. Herve handed me this mix a few weeks back. No track selection this time around unfortunately. It's all good though. Just play it.

I'm back in the mix after a ridiculous 7 month publishing hiatus. What can I say... other priorities put this blog on ice for a bit. Thanks to everyone who's emailed asking what's up and encouraging me to post again. It's motivated me knowing that a few of you were missing the updates.

Most of my mixes tend to be funk and hip-hop focused. This one is a sampling of house tracks, mainly on the deep/jazz/afro side of the spectrum. If you like this mix, also check out mix # 6.

More to come this summer. Stay tuned.

Guest Mix - The Breakbeat Junkie & Plugg

To stream, michael kors shoes sale click the Real Audio, iTunes, or Windows Media Player icons. To save to iTunes or other Mp3 software, right click on the download link. Save the file to your desktop and then drag it into iTunes.


Here’s another round of mashup biz from The Breakbeat Junkie & Plugg. Very creative and versatile track selection here. No doubt this required some serious lab time. Kurtis Blow's DC go-go inspired track, "Party Time" is a standout moment in this mix. To this day, KB is one of the only mainstream hip-hop artists to give props to go-go - a rare but important funk sub-genre. Growing up in DC, I have a decent collection of early 80s go-go records. I'm thinking a go-go mix on illJazz needs to happen soon.

Ok..back to the mixtape at hand. Other highlights: the Candy Dulfer and Public Enemy blend; the Magic Touch and Stetsasonic blend; The Meters (you can't go wrong!); Chunky Billy; Funkhouse Express, etc. Very solid production all around. Expect to hear more of Ant & Plugg on illjazz soon.

TRACKLISTING

1. The Whatnauts - Help Is On The Way
2. Public Enemy - Public Enemy Number 1 (Acapella)
3. Willard Reunion Posey - Cissy Strut-N-American Women
4. Just Four - Jam To Remember
5. Prince - Alphabet Street
6. Kurtis Blow - Party Time
7. Low Profile - Funky Song
8. Magic Touch - You Are What You Are
9. Stetsasonic - Talkin All That Jazz (Clapapella)
10. Miami - Chicken Yellow
11. Rob Base - Turn it Out (Perc Acapella)
12. Billy Preston - Outta Space

To stream, click the Real Audio, iTunes, or Windows Media Player icons. To save to iTunes or other Mp3 software, right click on the download link. Save the file to your desktop and then drag it into iTunes.

TRACKLISTING

1. Beatvandals - Drilla
2. Pepe 99 – Mashed up Funk
3. Funkadelic – Get off your ass and Jam
4. The Time – Cool (part 1)
5. O'Bryan – I'm Freaky
6. Season feat. Ernesto – Juice (Afro-Naught Remix)
7. Kraak & Smaak - Maputo Express
8. Mooquee – Supacat Police
9. Big Daddy Kane - Ain't no Half Steppin'
10. EPMD – Crossover
11. Unstoppable - Loves Entry (J-Disco's Unstoppable Mix)
12. InDeep – When Boys Talk
13. Pharrell - Frontin' (Yam Who rework)
14. Groove Collective – Up all Night
15. Lanu – Dis-Information
16. Amp Fiddler – Ridin (Carl Craig 12" edit)
17. Truby Trio feat. Joseph Malik – High Jazz (Freeform Reform Vocal)
18. Decaff feat. Roland Clark – Helpless (Hott 22 Vocal Mix)
19. Franck Roger - Bone of my Bone
20. Yann Fontaine - Can you feel it (Marius Mix)
21. Schmoov - Destination

This latest mixtape is a bit scattered. No real focus or inspiration - I just pulled a bunch of tunes and tried to make it work. Some of my favorites are in here, so if you're not feeling the entire playlist, at least check out these tracks: "Dis-information," Lanu's broken beat soul cut, is absolutely killer. "Helpless" by Decaff (aka DJ Noir) has one of those addictive rhythms that never tires. And if you slept on the 80s classics "Cool" by The Time and "I'm Freaky" by O'Bryan, then definitely take a listen.

Guest Mix - The Breakbeat Junkie & Plugg

To stream, click the Real Audio, iTunes, or Windows Media Player icons. To save to iTunes or other Mp3 software, right click on the download link. Save the file to your desktop and then drag it into iTunes.


Here's a tight mix from Ant (aka The Breakbeat Junkie) and Plugg -- two DJs from the UK. These dudes have collaborated on over 6 mixes together, but they've never actually met or spoken. All of their production is digital and Web-based.

Normally, I'm not a fan of heavily-edited mixes, but this is an exception. Listen to "The Message" blended with Bongolia -- it's super seamless and natural. A lot of these edits and transitions can't be done with vinyl alone, which is why digital mixing is starting to get my respect. It opens up a lot of creative possibilities, and this mix is a good example of what can be done.

TRACKLISTING

1. T-Connection - Groove to Get Down
2. Ultramagntic Mc's - Poppa Large (acapella)
3. Yellow Sunshine - Yellow Sunshine
4. Lttle Sonney - Eli's Pork Chop
5. Ol' Dirty Bastard Feat Kelis - Got Yo Money
6. Uncle Louie - I Like Funky Music
7. Melle Mel - The Message (acapella)
8. Michael Viner's Incredible Bongo Band - Bongolia
9. Melle Mel - The Message (acapella)
10. Bombs - Average White Five
11. Lyrics Born - Do That There Medley
12. Soulson - Buffalo Gals
13. Pleasure - Let's Dance
14. Dimples D - Sucker DJ (acapella)
15. The 45 King - The 900 Number (Lakim Shabazz acapella)
16. Up, Bustle & Out - Carbine 744 520 Che Guevara
17. Up, Bustle & Out - Guitarra Por La Revolucion
18. Eric B & Rakim - I Know You Got Soul (acapella)
19. Pleasure - Joyous
20. MC Duke - Miracles (acapella)
21. Public Enemy - Night Of The Living Bassheads
22. Z-Trip feat. Lyrics Born & Lateef - The Get Down (DJ Zeph Remix)
23. Lucy Hawkins - Gotta Get Out of Here
24. Busta Rhymes - Dangerous (acapella)
25. Flow Dynamics - Live In The Mix
26. Mc Lyte - Cold Rock A Party (acapella)
27. Fdel - Ladies And Gentlemen
28. Aromadozeski Therapy feat Rmanowski Devious Doze - Strudel Strut
29. Krs-One ft Smooth Bee - The Refinitions (acapella)
30. Dj Jeff - Change The Scratch

Ant and I have been exchanging emails for awhile now. I have another one of his mixes that I'll be posting here shortly. Stay tuned...

Ursula 1000's third offering on illJazz is a hard-hitting breaks mix with a retro vibe - lot's of beeps, distorted bass, cheeky rave synths, and 90s hip-hop references. The stand-out track is easily Product.01's mix of Electrik Boogie, but the whole thing is slamming.

4. Ursula 1000 - Electrik Boogie (Product.01 remix)

8. Hotflash vs. Spank Rock - Bump Boot (Ursula 1000 edit)

12. The Cooky Factory - I Just Want To
13. DJ Nick - Summer Samba
14. Micky Slim - Jump
15. Ursula 1000 - Step Back (Deekline & Ed Solo remix)

If you are in NYC this month, Ursula will be spinning at Heathers Bar on the 19th, APT on the 20th, and the PS1 Warm-up partay on the 28th.
