well, its march… 2011, the project is well over.
i will be closing down the blog in a couple of days. it was an amazing/inspiring adventure, got some incredible feedback, met some great people and hopefully gave you a bit of a soundtrack to the year or at least turned you onto some new music.
NOVEMBER MIX: 11
when my friends at crackers suggested i make a “music to farm to” mix, i was ALL over it! for one reason or another, i can relate these songs to farming, or nature. whether its a tone, texture or lyric. i am particularly fond of this mix for several reasons; it has a great pace, a bunch of my favourite artists, and a theme really speaks to me.
hope you enjoy listening as much as i enjoyed making this one.

SEPTEMBER MIX: 09
this was a fun one… i found an old mix tape that i made when i was 15 years old (cassette, maxell XL II-S 100 bitch!). pretty much used the same track list, with a couple of late add-ons. not to sound like a geezer, but there was “something” really special about early 90s hip hop, that is just lacking now-a-days. in particular, o.c.’s track still resonates with me, go read the lyrics, its pure brilliance. dj premier’s beats… pete rock, tribe… come on.
while working on the tracklist, i was creeping a friends website, and stumbled upon an illustration of big daddy kane getting a fade… it was meant to be! i would really like to thank mike rinaldi for letting me use the illustration, check him out… he’s amazing; mike-rinaldi.com
