Durkin Live @ Goodlife

If there was ever a person who was overdue for a Live At Home it's Ryan Durkin. Can't blame the man since he's been super busy working with Black El on their recent self release as well as some new Banana Seat tracks (stay tuned for the later). Durk and Black El recently curated a night at the Good Life where they did a few live numbers and played some good rap jams and Durk recorded his DJ set. I like how he plays old and new and weird stuff but doesn't go too far out in any one direction and keeps a tight set. A great listen if you're just not ready to get on this Kanye bandwagon. From Durkin himself (Soundcloud link below):

DJ set recorded 100% LIVE at Good Life in Boston, MA. I was playing upstairs during the BASSIC dubstep party, so I went kinda left field and decided to play a bunch of new music that is influencing me these days. New school raps, wonky instrumentals, future beats and a little boom bap. Cheers.

Acid Yazz

I haven't made a mixtape in forever. So here's a mixtape I made in the wee hours of the morning between working on all the slew of stuff that's about to hit the fan. I put it together from some of the finer moments in my Serato and record ripping history. Threw in remixes and production from some of the FF fam. It ended up being super long so I broke it up into pieces and made a website for it where you can stream it in sections, or download it all via this virtual trading post.


Use this modern day barter system to download it to your Zune or iZod:




the first single from the new Deathset album that I produced is up for free download on the pitchfork website

Live at Home 31: Bennett4Senate

Continuing the Brookline to Brooklyn Fully Fitted connect, Bennett4Senate submitted this entry to the live at home archives. At above thirty we're forging into our pearl years (or diamond?) and no better way to do it then with one of WFMU's finest! This from Bennett:


Bennett4Senate - Live at Home pt 31

I know this mix series is supposed to be "things I can't play live," but mine ended up being kind of backwards. I've been doing my show on WFMU for the past six months or so, where freeform is the norm, so the weirder the better, and I've barely stepped into a club in that time. I think everything on here I've played on the show, but when I'm in there I'm not beat matching or anything, so my Sunday afternoon vibe is actually a chance to dust off the Serato and try to get a more proper continuous mix going.

I'm pleased with how this came out, its a lot like what I'm aiming for with my show, but pared down for more focused consumption. Both beat-heavy sections and synth pad scenic atmospheres, a mix of old records and new WAV files (lossless son!). Sounds like lots of synths of course, library music, vocoder Neil Young, acid techno ragas, a couple soundtrack cuts, 90s Lion King feel good vibe house, ambient album cuts from disco LPs, a splash of r&b... also a bunch of new material, which has been the refreshing surprise of being on a radio station that gets tons of new independent music every week. The record industry may be a big ? right now but contemporary music is still inspiring. So this mix has some new Detroit house, "chillwave," even some autotune.

Thanks for letting me be a part of this. I've really enjoyed listening to the rest of the Live at Home series, y'all are deep!!

Nickel Snacks & Paper Stacks

Mr. AOK checks in from Brooklyn (by way of Brookline) with his newest mixtape for Famous Class. Chock full of edits with dope artwork from Sober. Here's the breakdown from Marko:
I made Nickel Snacks & Paper Stacks as part of my ongoing mix series with brooklyn DIY label Famous Class Records. It consists of 12 tracks, 10 of them are brand new original edits. I guess part of the reason I did it this way was to force myself back into more production. But I also wanted to share some of my favorite rap songs and artists with kids that wouldn't normally give them a chance because of the production / scene / whatever. It sounds like strawberry lemonade 4Loko and a Backwood full of hi grade in the back of a show early on in the night. It plays a little like an EP but with tempo mixing and it has the best rap tunes that i've been listening to mixed with the best other tunes I've been hearing. You can't go wrong.



FOR THE DJ'S (no drops, mixing or anything, straight edits for your serato box)
