My bad on the delay. First things first -

The Mixtape Show is in the final round for the award for Best (Podsafe) Music Podcast on the internet. Thanks for getting us this far – let’s take it this year! The voting opens on the 28th and goes to the 10th of August, generic and you can vote every single day. I fully expect all of you to do that. I’ll be posting details on how to vote once the polls open.

It’s also probably a good idea to keep an eye on this space in the next couple of weeks – there’s gonna be a hell of a lot of music coming your way – the podcasts will be coming in more often, here and there’s going to be a bunch of giveaways. So if you like free shiny discs with pretty songs on them, you should pay attention.

So – this episode. This is a compilation that came out a little while ago that spent a good amount of time in the ride, but for whatever reason has really been slept on. ArtDontSleep’s new From LA With Love has a mission statement that is a kinda tall order, but I am definitely feeling the music. I only have the promo version, but I hear the official release comes with a mini art booklet. Definitely a release worth checking out. This episode is a cool little mix put together by Kuthma that runs you through some of the highlights. Check the soultronica vibe on a lot of these cuts…

Here’s the official tracklist from the CD – obviously this isn’t the order of the podcast.
01. From Leaf to Feather – Night Sun
02. Nobody presents: Blank Blue – All the Shallow Deep
03. Sound Directions – Wildflower
04. Tarek “Dj Dusk” Captan – Let me know
05. A Race of Angels – Just Begin
06. Adventure Time – This Dome Is Our Home
07. Nathan Yell – Goodbye
08. Coleman - No Strings Attached
09. Computer Jay feat. The Gray Kid – 1000 Fold
10. Exile - In The Night 22 [more exile here]
11. Georgia Anne Muldrow – Killa Peach (I had no idea she produced! More of her here)
12. Flying Lotus – It’s A Secret [hell to the yes. more Flying Lotus]
13. Take feat. Gaby Hernandez – Walk Away
14. Yesterdays New Quintet – I Remember John Coltrane
15. The Gaslamp Killer feat. Gonjasufi - Kobwebs
16. Free Moral Agents – Sound At Sea
17. Carlos Nino & Miguel Atwood-Ferguson – Nag Champa (you’ve seen Carlos before as part of Ammon contact – more from them here)

Aaaand that’s about all I can get away with leaking. More info at myspace.com/fromlawithlove.

Oh – intro is that new Madlib - Get It Right.

As always, hit up the comments section, let me know what yall thought of this one..



After landing on the surface of Andromeda-13 in search of his cyborg partner Brothertron, approved Dex Digital contacts the ship’s computer (Cosbotron) in order to get coordinates on Brothertron’s last known location. Shortly after receiving those coordinates, valeologist Dex Digital is ambushed by a group of invisible space aliens native to Andromeda-13 – possibly the same beings that captured Brothertron.

Soon, Dex Digital awakens in deep within the aliens’ compound. He discovers that he is trapped in a cage suspended from the ceiling by a rather weak chain, and is accompanied in capture by Brothertron and an alien that appears well-versed in 21st Century Ebonics. Will our heroes make it back to their ship alive? What will happen to their new alien companion? And where did this alien dude learn to talk like that? Find out in this episode of Soultronica…

Be warned – none of this will likely make sense unless you’ve heard the rest of the soultronica series.


intro – a ghosteo beat.

Ammon Contact
– A Satellite’s Return. Special shouts to J.R. and Carlos Nino for linking me up with this jam. This one’s off of New Birth, which (from what I know) is the debut Ammon Contact record. There’s another one out, though, so check it.. AC on Ninjatune.

4Hero – Take My Time feat Jack Davey. Yes, vocals contributed by the singer of J*Davey. 4Hero has been around forever in this whole Nu Jazz / drum n bass thang, and this new soultronicaesque sound that they’ve got going on is hot. I might be sneaking another cut in off of their latest album – Play With the Changes. Shouts to JC of Milan Records for making the connection on this one. myspace.com/4hero.

interlude – Nicholas Cicero – Muerto 6.

The Big Payback
– It’s You.
The meandering opening cut on the second release from the Japan-based Circulations label. This song is not even the half of it, ladies and gentlemen. I think the artists on here are NY/France based – what they’re doing on a Tokyo label I don’t know, but I’m not complaining. Shoutouts to Dai again for getting this to me. myspace.com/circulations

Sa-Ra – Hey Love. Yeah, it would have been nice had I put this one out before the album come out, but hey, things happen. Doesn’t change the fact that the cut is nice. I still have some more on deck, so stay in tune.. sa-ra.net.

Ammon Contact – Omniverses 2. Probably my second favorite track off of the New Birth record. Check these cats out.

Glass Candy – Rolling Down the Hills [no vocals edit]. No offense to Ida, but I just couldn’t fuck with her vocals (at first – they actually grew on me after a while). Johnny Jewel, on the other hand, is a recent discovery (to me – he’s been doing his thing for a minute) and I dig his weird retro coked-out production. You can find the original on the Glass Candy myspace. myspace.com/glasscandy

pre-fight interlude – Josh Ivey

outro music – ripped from the Nintendo game Xexyz.

that’s this week’s jumpoff. And again – if you’re new to the series, you might want to step back and listen to Soultronica Vol 1, Soultronica Vol 2, and the recent Soultronica Vol 3.
