The BBC Radio 1 Essential Mixes never cease to amaze me. One of my favorite EMs is Hudson Mohawke. His gltichy hip hop style is one of a kind. In this mix you’ll hear Hudson Mo’s  spin on Lil Wayne, Ludacris, Twista, Pharell and much more.

A Journey Through J. Dilla’s Rock Crates Part I

J Dilla (February 7, 1974 – February 10, 2006) was a DJ with an incredible ear for samples. This is a mix by a DJ named Bowls who uses J Dilla’s rock samples to make a mix of his own. This  mix really shows how diverse  Dilla’s taste in music was. He was very patient. He listened for good samples in songs and wasn’t afraid to let it play long. Its a 37 min mix, I recommend listening to the whole thing. (my favorite  parts are around 7:00 & 25:30.) Its a very unique chill mix.

Alex B

27 Oct

Alex B is a good guy to know if you are into the hip hop electronica scene. He is a cool DJ who has been traveling around to festivals and making a name for himself. He is signed to 1320 Records which has so many great acts on it (sts9, eskmo, big gigantic, bassnectar, emancipator, and pretty lights just to name a few). He is playing in Ithaca Nov 19th @ the Thumpty Music Frat at Cornell and this show will benefit the Conscious Alliance, an organization that helps deliver food to impoverished communities in the United States. If you’re in the area come by and support the cause, I’ll be there.  If you want more info on Alex B check his website out http://www.alexbeats.com/.

Balmorhea

21 Oct

Balmorhea is a  band that is strongly influenced by classical music and post-rock. They play beautiful instrumental  music that can evoke strong emotions. They are not a very popular band, but one that I think everyone should know. I just bought their latest cd Constellations which came out earlier this year. I love everything they do.
