So this is sort of cheating, decease since this was actually recorded in like mid March, and just sort of sat on my hard drive, but whatever – as long as it keeps me on a weekly schedule it counts, right? Right?

Bounce Tape 4. If you’re new to the series, you can get yourself caught up by checking the bounce tape file.

Note – this tape (like the others) is not necessarily “good”, and has a lot of “mistakes” like – overdrawn or nonexistent transitions, me playing things 30 BPM too fast because I think it sounds better that way, and well, Super Mario sound effects. If you’re okay with that, let’s get into it…


Dr. Dre and Snoop Dogg – The Next Episode (Jay Robinson Clubstep Mix). This kind of scared me the first time I heard it. @jayrobinson

Simian Mobile Disco – Cruel Intentions (feat. Beth Ditto) (Joker Remix). This is such a cute song, really, when you think about it. “Call me down, we’ll hang out, I’m down for whatever.” Like riding bikes or getting ice cream or something. That said, though, I’m pretty sure I’ve left messages like this on various females’ voicemails over the years, and it’s never worked out yet, so I can’t really recommend using it.

Deadmau5 & Kaskade – I Remember (Caspa Remix). Yes, like I said, this mix is old. But seriously, this song does not get old. The bass just really smashes like that. Have you seen this video that the mad decent kids put out? It also smashes. The clip, incidentally, is from Say Anything, which I watched on the strength of this clip, and I can also recommend, as it is a really fine specimen of mid-80s white cinema, if you’re into that sort of thing.

Gucci Mane – Dope Boys (Bird Peterson Remix). Seriously, listening to this now this song is so juvenile. I know MF Doom refers to himself in third person all the time, but somehow when Gucci does it he sounds like a first grader. Oh, the remix also samples BT – “Godspeed”, which is pretty funny. @gucci1017

Rapture – Don’t Go Do It (Million $ Mano Remix). Yeah, this is 2007 status, but nobody cares because this song just goes that hard. @djmano

Rye Rye – Bang feat. M.I.A. (DJ Sega’s Philly Club Remix). Speaking of M.I.A., has anyone really listened to that new record? I’ve only heard pieces, but I was liking what I was hearing. @tharealryerye

Prodigy – No Good. I don’t think people listen to enough Prodigy. @the_prodigy

Martyn – Hear Me. I think we need more organs, in general. @martyn3024

The Hood Internet – Blazin Kryptonite (Big Boi feat. Purple Ribbon All-Stars vs Ghislain Poirier). Yeah, I know, Hood Internet. But they absolutely got this one right. @hoodinternet

Lemon Jelly – ’75 Aka Stay With You. I played this a little fast, so if you want the real experience, I’d recommend locating a normal copy. It’s a pretty good track. www.lemonjelly.ky

Sabotage Party – Cold Night In Paradise. I can’t say I actually understand what’s going on here, but this is a pretty great song. @sabotage1893

okay yeah so that’s this week – see you next time.



You all ever heard of this thing? Type A personality? It’s like I can’t even slow down here. Start up this episode, illness take a deep breath, and try to see the big picture here – it’s bigger than just your issues, kids.

Aside from that, though, I got two pairs of tickets to Nicolay + Kay shows to give away – one in each of these venues:
April 12 – The Forbidden City, Hollywood, CA
April 18 – The Black Cat, Washington, DC

So, I guess I’m supposed to do some sort of “contest” or something. I’ll make this one easy – just write me an email or leave a comment and tell me the number of the last Mixtape Show episode in which Nicolay appeared. Extra consideration given if you make the comment interesting. I’ll pick the winners pretty much asap. This will also be going on the Facebook thing too, so…get moving. Enough of that, let’s do it…


Intro beat – CL Smooth and Skyzoo – Perfect Timing instrumental.

Big Boi – Royal Flush feat Andre 3000 and Raekwon. It’s like the three of them sat down and said “Listen here, Andre. You rap good. Have like seven verses.” And Andre said “Okay”. And it was good. myspace.com/outkast.

The Roots - 75 Bars (Black‘s Reconstruction). I didn’t count them, but if there are 75 bars here, they are all good. Suburb put me up on this one and I’m still kicking myself for taking this long to actually get to it. I’m sometimes not too big on The Roots’ recorded material, but this is just kind of great. Even if there are probably more niggas in this song than bars (bonus points for anyone that counts them up!). myspace.com/theroots

Percee P – Untitled Percee P Track. Or at least that’s word-for-word how it was labeled on this CD. Dig the rhyme patterns that dude uses, and the Billy Jack quotes (I think I should check this film). Once again, kids – the bigger picture. “Payback’s a bitch, America / Karma toomyspace.com/perceep

Jay Electronica – Colors. Seriously, fam? 45 seconds? Don’t worry, kids, I got more.

Guilty Simpson – Pigs. I don’t think I really forsaw anyone attempting to rap over this Madlib jawn. Can’t hate on this dude for taking this one on, because he kinda tore it up. Quotable lines abound. myspace.com/guiltysimpson

Rhymefest – Mentor Mike feat Michael Jackson. What could I possibly have been doing that was so important that I didn’t listen to this song until this morning? Wow. myspace.com/rhymefest

Spec Boogie – Bed Stuy. The beat is just ridiculous. This one came highly recommended from our good friend Suburb, who is currently too busy eating Hot Chee-tos or something to let me listen to his new record. That’s fine, buddy. Spec, though – this is a great track. Plenty more of the same on his myspace. myspace.com/specboogie

Nicolay and Kay – Grand Theft Auto. Yes, the subject matter matches the title. If you dig this cut, hey, maybe try to get yourself a couple tickets. I really shoulda saved this for the next edition of the Nintendo Mixtape, but hey, who knows when that one’s gonna actually drop…myspace.com/nicolay.

Outro beat – Amplive / Radiohead – Weird Fishez. You all have the Amplive remixes of Radiohead’s In Rainbows, right? Good.

Shouts to Aimee, and everyone else that made this episode possible. Bedtime.



As most of you are aware, patient I get so much music on a daily basis that it’s not possible to put even a tenth of it into a show. Thus, anemia a lot of good shit never ends up getting out, due to a combination of my tendency to sit on joints until I feel like it’s ready and my ADHD kicking in and me getting bored with the stuff I was going to put out. It’s not an easy life, trust me.

So with that said, I’ve tried to put some of the joints that really caught my attention over the last few months on this podcast. Don’t call it “leftovers”, cause it ain’t that, but just because sometimes I just can’t fit a song into a particular episode shouldn’t mean that it never gets out.

Here’s the track list.

Dabrye – Air feat MF Doom. Regardless of what I might have said about that Dangerdoom project, I’m still a Doom fan – and I’ve always liked Dabrye’s shit. If you feel this joint, I’d actually recommend going out and picking up Dabrye’s Two/Three – it was a long time in the making and there are at least five joints that spent forever in my Volvo CD player. dabrye.com.

Nicolay – The End Is Near feat Black Spade. I was actually so swamped a few months ago that I never actually got to listen to this record until I was in Hong Kong. I remember the overall record – Here – being sort of hit or miss sometimes, but for the Black Spade joints are definitely worth checking out. Cop up. myspace.com/nicolay.
