mixes everyone should hear: dj neil armstrong – music for when nobody’s looking

And, I’m back.  I hope everyone had a wonderful Holiday, because I got an extra present for all of you.

Do you have any guilty pleasures of the musical variety?  Of course you do.  We all do.  I may get somewhat snobbish about my Led Zeppelin collection, but part of me still pines for Def Leppard.  Luckily DJ Neil Armstrong came along and made this mix full of nothing but guilty pleasures called “Music for When Nobody’s Looking.”

On a personal note, I have been desperately awaiting a new mix from Neil for some time because, as those of you who read this blog may have figured out, I simply love his dirty drawers.  As far as I am concerned the man can do no wrong, and he has a real knack for mining my formative years for tunes that hit all the right spots, mixed with style and reverence.  I discovered this mix last night, and immediately bought, downloaded and digested the entire thing within an hour.

Why?

Because I wouldn’t waste your time if the mix sucked.

It doesn’t, and here’s a little sample of what you’ll be getting:

And while I wish I could float you a free download, I can now honestly tell you that the $6.50 I spent via PayPal for the download was totally worth it.  Check the set list:

1) introduction – guilty as charged
2) Say Say Say Michael Jackson & Paul McCartney
3) Everything She Wants – Wham
4) The Right Stuff – New Kids on the Block

11) Say It Isn’t So – Hall & Oates
12) Time – Culture Club
13) You Are – Lionel Richie
14) Never Gonna Give You Up – Rick Astley

The Kareoke Section

16) I Can’t Fight this Feeling Anymore – REO Speedwagon
17) Keep on Loving You – REO Speedwagon
18) Home Sweet Home – Motley Crue

mixes everyone should hear: blood bros – first blood & heaven 2 hell

If you were at all like myself back in the eighties and early nineties, you probably enjoyed some fantastic shlock action films like the Rocky series, Over the Top and The Last Dragon.  And if you admit to enjoying great cinema like that, you also have to admit to enjoying thehair band power tracks that usually accompanied said films.  Well Dirty South Joe and DJ A enjoyed these things as well…so much so that they took some of their favorite tracks and made a mix that follows the general story line of film like this: training, the fight and eventual victory.  It will make you feel pumped, excited and a little ashamed all at once and that is no rare feat.

And they are kind enough to provide a free download as well!


Now fast forward a few months and our DJ duo are back with part 2 (Also free download! There is also an apparent part three on the way BTW)

This one follows the same formula as the first, but with tracks from Scarface, Top Gun and Gleaming the Cube to name a few.  Personally, I enjoy any mix with Kenny Loggin’s “Danger Zone” in it.  To be honest, I picked these up a few months ago and finally got around to listening to them the other day.  I didn’t want to drop em on you before I gave them a good listen to ensure you got the highest quality available.

They are associated with Hypetrak magazine, which can be found HERE, and on Soundcloud HERE.  Check em out, there is a lot of good stuff up in there!  Keep an eye out for part three coming soon!

mixes everyone should hear: dj same – rock edits for aor disco

Yeah…I know I kind of bow at the alter of AOR Disco these days, but they do kind of deserve it and you should visit their site, book mark it and check that shit regularly.  And I still believe that Adult Oriented Rock is the new Heavy Metal.

DJ Same really kills it here with smooth transitions and blends that are on point as well as in key.  That, and his selection is top notch.  Check the set list.

01. Whistle Test
02. Two Tribes – Frankie Goes to Hollywood(Annihilation)(Wu Tang Edit)
03. The Isley Brothers Don’t Live Here Anymore – Heavenly Mash
<<The Isley Brothers – Footsteps in the Dark (Vins Edit)
<<Rose Royce – Love Don’t Live Here Anymore (LNTG Rework)
04. The Eagles – Tell Me Why (Tony Jacolone Edit)
05. Thunderclap Newman – Something in the Air (DeepSoundDesignRemix)
06. Saint Etienne – Sun in my Morning (The Starkiller’s I Love The Smell Of Balearic Piano Disco In The Morning Remix)
07. Marvin Gaye – What’s Going On (A Jimmy Michaels Mix)
08. James Taylor – Something In The Way She Moves (BP’s ‘Feelin’ Fine In The Countryside’ Dub)
09. Amy Holland – Strengthen my Love (Northern Rascal Stronger Edit 2011)
10. Dr. Hook – Sexy Eyes (BP’s Edit)
11. Carole King – It’s Too Late (Tony Jacalone Edit)
12. Jaye P Morgan – Let’s Get Together (Ole Smokey’s Looking For Love Edit)
13. Rayko_Em_Vee_-_All_Around_The_Watchtower

16. Talking Heads – Take Me To The River (AC’s Live Jam Re-Edit)
17. ZZ Top – Gimme all your Lovin’ (Scratchandsniff’s Beardy Rerub)
18. Christopher Cross – Ride like the Wind (Henry’s Lost Disco Mix)
19. Ace – How Long (Tony Jacolone Edit)
20. Fleetwood Mac – Hypnotized (Zambon Edit)

This mix is free to download (just click on the arrow on the right side of the play window for the download link) and will make you happier than any commercial garbage out there.  Better yet, if you find a specific remix on here that you like…chances are you can also download it from Soundcloud.

Don’t sleep, this one is pretty special.

mixes everyone should hear: amerigo gazawa – fela soul

This is so genius that I am smacking the side of my head right now for not thinking of it sooner.

Gummy Soul artist Amerigo Gazawa took a slew of Fela Kuti samples and mashed them up with a handpicked selection of De La Soul accapellas to create “Fela Soul.” 8 tracks and 33 minutes of musical awesome sauce. Here’s what the man had to say:

“I came up with the concept for this project in fall of 2010. I wanted to follow through with it not only because it was a good idea, but because of the powerful impact both these artists have had on me and my music. Afrobeat, jazz, funk, and hip-hop are already so interconnected, and I always thought it would be exciting to work on a project that combined all of these elements together.”

“I hope this project will help to bridge the gap between hip-hop and afrobeat, and serve an introduction for hip-hop fans and music fans alike who are unfamiliar with Fela Kuti or De La Soul’s music.”

-Amerigo Gazaway

So if you are having a shit week, and you were quietly asking yourself what could possibly make things better AND you also had a deep love of both Afro-Beat and De La Soul…well then, dear listeners, this one goes out to you!

And do you know what puts the cherry on top of this musical sundae?  It’s fucking free!

That’s right, thank you internets…free music for all!  Download it HERE.  You will need to sign up your email for the Gummy Soul mailing list, but the worst thing that could happen is that they send you music news and maybe more mixtapes.
