In light of the upcoming festivities in Austin @ South by SouthWest, Live@home part 3 is a mix from a guy you can check DJing more times than a few in Austin this week...
MIKE THE 2600 KING
I dont know exactly when I met Mike, I think it was around 05' in Minneapolis at First avenue and 7th st Entry (Prince/Purple Rain...ps: Uncle Pase, can I get that DVD?). It was still the days of wine and vinyl and Mike was doubling up records and pulling off some kind of clean ass mix of Led Zeppelin with wierd electro. The next time I saw him he showed up at some college outside Minneapolis at this show for these kids at their janky ass snack bar. It ended up being a grand old time, and it's always good to see a familiar face when you pull up to a random snack shack in Minnesota.
Mike is a talented guy, either behind the mixer or at the sketch pad/scanner. He has designed countless posters, flyers, and album covers for artists around the globe. He has all this, and much of his other work here. No really, click that.
Yea Mike is great and all, but the real reason for this post is to present Part #3in the series Live@Home.
Here is what Mike had to say about his mix:
"I recorded this mix at home on Saturday March 1st. I then proceeded to go eat at this hole-in-the-wall BBQ spot in St. Paul with my homie Kenny Kingston. The owners have a photo up on the wall of them with Ice-T. After lunch I pretty much spent the entire day playing pinball at our studio until my friend Jake Money completely annihilated my top score of 67,890 with a brain-obliterating 89,680. Motherfucker titty sucker."
...BUT THEN MIKE TURNED IT AROUND AND SHATTERED JAKE MONeY"S SEEMINGLY UNTOUCHABLE SCORE WITH A FACE MELTING 127,750 POINTS
