MIXTAPE SHOW 69 – THE ROCK EPISODE


MIXTAPE SHOW 69 – THE ROCK EPISODE

Yo. Welcome back to the program. I’ve actually got an interview/feature in the works (I’ll give you two guesses as to what the topic is), but in the meantime, here’s another concept episode.

This time, it’s all about rock-influenced tracks. Now I obviously could have gone with mashups (thanks for the tip on that Modest Mouse+Weezy track, Robin), but that would be cheating. Check the tracklist, and if you need more information on the DVD giveaway, check the post below.

Track List.

Intro I – Black Sabbath.
Game Theme/Intro II – Patrick Goble – New Shred.

Hevi Medal – 730 [dex ADHD edit]. The video for this cut is wild on some serious skurry insanity shit. If you want the full version of the song, check out their myspace page. myspace.com/mophevimedal.

Deaf In The Family – Southern Man feat Bavu Blakes. Apparently the original sample was what inspired the penning of Sweet Home Alabama, but fuck that song. Mr. Bavu, who I think dropped the “Blakes” thing, breaks down some race/class knowledge on some college-educated shit. You can listen to the whole album on the site, deafinthefamily.com.

Lil’ Flip – Rockstar. This song is pretty ridiculous. But don’t act like it isn’t catchy. This is why I love mixtapes – you always get these ridiculous-ass joints in the end of the CD that are better than half the rest of the tape. myspace.com/lilflip.

RJD2 – Exotic Talk. Please, Def Jux, don’t sue me. I have been fucking with RJD2‘s shit for a very long time now. I liked The Horror and alla that, but really Since We Last Spoke was the one that spent the most time in my Volvo, including that weepy-ass “Making Days Longer”. I hear he has a new album out, which I unfortunately haven’t heard, but I’m hearing positive things about it. He’s actually on tour now, so some of you herbs might want to catch him live. myspace.com/rjd2.

Deaf In The Family – Mr Blue Sky feat Scavone. I never thought someone would have the balls to flip this one, but these dudes actually did a pretty fucking bang-up job on this one. After you finish listening to the show, and entering the contest, get thee to a record store and cop the original ELO version. 7 minutes of overwrought, multithematic, hairsprayed rock godditude. Can I get a amen. deafinthefamily.com.

DCNY - Skye Blues. See that? Mr Blue Sky, Sky Blues. I am really, really clever, ouxu. Really clever. This is another group I used to rock back on my college show, and for some reason when I was mixing this show down the CD just jumped out at me. Recommended for the boom-bap fans. myspace.com/tresmons.

Outro I – Black Sabbath
Outro II – Calamine – Sealab 2021 Theme.

Swimmers – The Unofficial Swimmers Bootleg feat Lil Jon, E-40 and Keak da Sneak. Actually I don’t have a title for this. The Swimmers are not responsible for this soundclash. Thank you, nxt. myspace.com/swimmersband.

And that’s all for this one. What did you think?

MIXTAPE 62 – RETURN OF THE BOUNCE TAPE


MIXTAPE 62 – RETURN OF THE BOUNCE TAPE

Due to popular demand, I’ve resurrected the Bounce Tape format for another edition. That means that everybody’s favorite spastic, button-mashing, hey-guys-watch-me-play-with-the-eq-for-no-reason style is back.

This time, you’re in for some sped-up crunk, electro, hyphy, funk, and grime, not necessarily in that order. I’d write more but keep it 100 it’s fucking 3 AM and it is sleepytime soon.

And remember, playing the show from the player above will get you a lower-fidelity file (but shorter loadtime), but if you subscribe to this hip-hop podcast(free), you’ll get the high quality file.

MIXTAPE EPISODE 55 feat BARTHOLOMEW JAMES


MIXTAPE EPISODE 55 feat BARTHOLOMEW JAMES

This week, I (dex digital) take a break and Bartholomew James of the Quiet Storm on KPLT 92.7FM makes his hip-hop podcast debut.

Dem Franchize Boyz – Lean Wit It (Don Vito remix). Yes, you know this song, and yes, it’s a simple remix. But that won’t stop you from playing it out. majormoneyentertainment.com.

DK – Mask On. Apparently Bartholomew got a little confused, because this isn’t Luther, this is one of the strongest players in the East Coast mixtape game, DK. If you don’t listen to the words, you might actually miss what’s going on. myspace.com/dk730

Lil Jon and the Eastside Boys – Get Low (Ghosteo Remix). Another ridiculously simple remix, but I mean come on. Between the Sheets + anything = instant classic. I’m not sure where this “Gap Band” nonsense came from, but I can see why Bartholomew James would pick this cut out. myspace.com/ghosteo.

E-40 and Keak da Sneak – Tell Me When To Go (Trackademics remix). It’s hard to match the original, but if any of the myriad remixes that came out are close, this one’s right up there with them. myspace.com/trackademics.

Gwen Stefani, 4-Ize and Ludacris – Payback. Aaaaaand there goes our credibility. I’m actually not sure why Bartholomew played this one, considering that he didn’t even like it and he swore to me beforehand that he wouldn’t put any white people on the show. On the other hand, y’all know my weird tastes in music, so it’s not that I mind it going in here. 4-Ize has been a little slow with releases recently, maybe he’s working on something nowadays…soularsausage.com.

outro track: MR. MAKK – which is Kenny Keys’ band – Phrase 72. I had this one sitting on my desk, I’m guessing that ol’ BJ picked it up and took a fancy to it. myspace.com/kennykeys.

Well, I’d like to thank everyone for putting up with Bartholomew James this week – assuming I get over my cold and get my shit together in time, I should be back next week with a normal episode. Mr. James asked if you all could holler at him with some comments though, so if y’all feel like it, feel free to drop some here.
