Welcome. These are called mixes. If you like the artists, go buy their music. I might do that too! More likely, if you like the artist, go see their live show.

New Orleans

In April 2007 Arjan and I drove to New Orleans to take a look for ourselves on how things are faring there.
This is Arjan's video report.

For today, I've chosen to compile 2 playlists of some of my favorite tracks from my top musical heroes.

Click the artist's name or pic for their mix.

Brian Eno: I've really enjoyed his first 3 solo albums for the past 4-5 years. They came out before he got into ambient productions and before he started doing engineering, compositions for others. I love his ostentatious behavior and dadaist lyrics, his experimentation with sound and rock composition, his sounds!, and most of all his diversity. The songs provided here are from the albums here come the warm jets, taking tiger mountain by strategy, and another green world. sidenote: Phil Collins drums on a number of these tracks.

Dose One: A lyrical mad man. A jack of all trades. He's experimented on so many different projects that it's hard to keep track of his catalogue. I admire him to the fullest degree, from his helping in the initial founding of anticon to beating eminem at a scribble jam battle. Most of all I admire his creativity and sense of musical adventurousness. For this cd, I've compiled songs from all over the map. His solo cds(early and recent), his work with producer Jel as Them(selves), his work with BoomBip, his works in Deep Puddle Dynamics(which lead to the formation of anticon. the group included Sole, Alias, and Slug(of Atmosphere)) his works as cLOUDDEAD with fellow anticon alums Odd Nosdam and Why?, his work with the Notwist entitled 13 & god, and his work with Subtle which is essentially a fully fleshed out version of Themselves. I hope you enjoy if you've not heard.


My apologies

I've been house sitting for my brother, away from my computer, away from the internet. On the plus, I've really enjoyed the company of his 2 dogs. It's been a good while since I've had a pet in the house.

A new mix will be uploaded later today, possibly sans art.

This mix has nothing to do with September 11, 2001. It's not political. It's not sentimental. I tried to start it off slow and pick up the pace. Think I did a decent job of it. It contains many recent discoveries from several genres of music. I hope you'll enjoy it as much as I.
