Exile & Sake @ ELBO Tonight + Keyshia/Exile Edit

Image
Tonight it's going down at the Elbo Room!
Exile, Sake 1, F.A.M.E., and the 4onefunk DJs. 'Nuff Said.

Here's an edit from a few years back - I re-arranged and chopped Exile's amazing "Melon" (the watermelon man flip) around the Keyshia Cole vocals.

I Should Have Cheated (melon re-edit)

Caught this via Treasure Fingers' blog, so amazing.


Grapevine - Sock It To Me

Image
This one is somewhat "rustic", part of the reason being that my copy of the Deacons joint is pretty well/over loved. I tried to use the EQ to get the mix just right, but in general I consider it a pretty lo-fi draft and should be for ipod use only :) The Deacons track used here is essentially an instrumental version of the Syl Johnson recording "Come On Sock It To Me", as recorded on Twilight.

Love's Coming At Ya - Instrumental Edit

Image
Here's a new edit of a M. Moore jam from '82 - tried to work lightly around the vocals while extending the beat out with a few accents and quick turnarounds.

Reggae Edit: Temps Over Classic Marley

Used the long version of "Jamming" from the UK 12" to piece together this Motown-Marley mix. The temptations - papa was a rolling stone (b.cause jamming dub edit) by djbcause

A Little Bit Of Love Is All It Takes

Image
Here's something new, the classic N.E. vocals over Le Scratch Funk's "From Scratch" drums on MPM. Planned on just making the quick blend/edit but after playing with the Juno a bit I added subtle layers throughout the track. Grab 'em both or take your pick :)

Check out the Le Scratch Funk dudes over on their myspace.

Doc Delay & B.Cause: Jukebox Wizard

Image
Here's a newly finished and fun pop/rock blends project done with the always awesome Doc Delay, something we started when he kindly put me up for a few days as I was visiting New York a year ago. Check him out over here, the guy is constantly turning out cool music & great mixes. Keep in mind these are separate tracks rather than a "mixtape" format. Liner notes by Sasha Frere Jones.

"New York and San Francisco meet in key to bring you the best song sandwiches both sides of the Mississippi."

“I have no idea who this guy was. He arrived around 7:45 PM, ordered a beer, took a sip, and just sat there and let the beer turn to lawn water. That was it. He just sat and stared. He had on these dumb mirrored shades and wore a Dungaree jacket. He could have been 21, 41, I have no idea. He never talked to anyone. Everybody thought he was blind, but he never stumbled or fell or used a cane. Not in front of me at least.

At some point, when nobody e…
