I went to the supermarket the other day on a beverage quest and saw these guys looking a little... out of place. Two thoughts immediately rushed my brain as I gazed upon the top row of liquids.A) How did these get past the assembly line? and B) Did someone piss in these bottles and put them back on the shelf? If so, how did they piss the exact amount to fill them so perfectly neat? And, did they do this in the store or did they bring these from home? I just have so many questions... Like, who's going to end up buying these and will they know that it tastes a little different from the "power-c" they're used to? Needless to say, I went the 4 for $5 gatorade route instead, since I was just too skeptical and untrusting of the stores vitamin water supply at this point.
The 'C' key on my laptop broke off as well, so.. I'm thinking that if I looked at the Horoscopes this week, i'd say it's a bad week for Cs.
Mike 2600 gave me a shout recently to see if I wanted to possibly do a mix for the Burlesque Design podcast series, so I was like F*ck yes. I had already worked on a mix a few nights before that I was really into, so I decided to throw it his way and after the approval came the post. from Burlesque HQ... The artwork for this mix was designed by our good friend Adam Garcia. You might remember him from his collaborations with Wezz on the Fall 2007 Arcade Fire poster series. Please visit him online at http://thepressure.org and http://thepressureisgoodforyou.blogspot.com
Here is the link to my mix as well as the series...
Last week's radio show with Nitetrain and crew from Musk (the current night he regulars) was a blast. Plenty of disco and deep house for days. Check the special disco/funk 45 excerpt mix below. Grab the whole show from the Mofo Radio blogue.
A little background on Nitetrain for out of towners; If you've been in the Boston area long enough chances are you've had at least a youtube encounter with DJ Nitetrain. He initially garnered local fame by bringing an entire sound system on the train with him back in the day, but has since stepped it down to a pair of studio cans and a backpack full of minidiscs. Just being around Jerry will put you in a good mood, and talking to him proves he's serious about his music.
Bonus jams! Although not in this mix, loved this Eddie Grant joint Nitetrain rocked (doubles of no less, pictured above). And this B.D.S Unlimited song is sure to be a regular on Sundays nights (when we do it...again).
It's kind of a new day at the FF blog as we are going to host all files and make it much easier to download without those crappy sharing sites. (check out that 'fancy' new banner)
I did this mix last March did for my good friend Ben Sisto's philanthropic throwdown, Love During Wartime. I need to start thinking about volume 2 so i dusted it off and gave it a listen...(volume 2 will be fitted with new hand drawn original covers...a la the image at top of the post)

Here's the two shot from last week. Was in a record ripping mood so I worked some old dancehall 12"s into the set. The first kind of a corny Beatles cover. Second is Red Fox with some early nineties material that samples Spill the Wine.
Joycelyn - Let It Be
Red Fox - Jessica
I think I'm gonna skip over the two shot in tonight's radio show due to very special guests DJ Nitetrain and friends being in the studio. Catch up more on the man in the latest mofo megapost. Should be some seriously deep disco chunes. Join me on the air 10PM TONIGHT CLICK HERE FOR THE LIVE STREAM! Can't resist posting this classic Nitetrain footage. This is what it's all about.
I found out about this Carly Simon (SCHWING!) song when it came on after Curtis Mayfield'sTrippin on Zebo'sGrown Mix Volume 2 ...DOWNLOAD HERE...One of the best mixes of 08' (and the David Axlerod tune that follws in this mix...whoa)
Animal Collective kicked off the new year with a great album and also leg brought this to my attention:
It's a mashup of their song "My girls" with Frankie Knuckles "your love" since they both kind of have the same synth melody. so that reminded me that I did this mashup/re-edit thing with the same song a couple of years ago except i put Justin Timberlake and Britney Spears over it. enjoy!
I got this mix from Karl Hungus (Shop Gentei Sound System, BBC r.i.p) about a year ago ... I had asked him for a Live at Homemix because his crates are quite deep and he slaughtered Darko and I at the legendary '45 night' at the Ottobar a few years back.(Ron, please post)
He sent me a mix with this attached:
A lil "sompin sompin" i did the night before i went out to japan in January. had a bunch of friends asking me to make a mix for them, some wanted straight club, some wanted biale, some wanted disco, electro etc etc. I didnt have time to make 1 each so i just went up the bpm scale and did it in 1 take. started about 105, and finished up around 130. some joints in there i love, and some i just like. no track listings, cause if your a dj you should know already, and if your not then its not important. you cant really buy any of the songs on cd anyway. just listen and enjoy. i tried and play as many of them from vinyl as i can, some are straight to mp3 though so you know the deal. serato!
