From February to August we did a sereis of mixes here called Live@home. All the mixes were recorded Live, in someones house, with no post-mix editing. They came out pretty dope and we got a lot of really great Feedback. Well, its time to grease the wheels for this next round of mixes with a couple given to us in the same vein, for exclusive download.
This week: Eli Escobar who is, among other things, the mastermind behind Pase Rock's Grammy award nominated 12" So Fuckin Disco.
This Mix from Eli is one that he streamed at his Blog but has given to us to post up for download. It's Live, it's from his home and now its yours world...
"I was digitizing this 12 inch of this old Imagination song and just started djing while I was recording for about 38 minutes. The thing that always surprises me about vinyl is I can lock in two records in about 3 seconds, go make myself a frozen pizza, eat it, take a shit and come back 6 minutes later and they will still be perfectly in synch. Big difference from Serato (especially when you're djing in a club and the bass is making your green circles all fuzzy). I've been really struggling with the gayness of Serato recently and although I have no plans to stop using it, djing with records every once in a while is good therapy! So these are just old records I've had for years and years and still never get sick of hearing. Enjoy!"
Damn!6 mins.Cook, Eat, shit. Eli Escobar, you are a genius for that one
