Guest Mix: JFD Mushroom Summer Edition by @die A.

Guest Mix Hip Hop

A couple weeks ago, I was scouring SoundCloud for some new mixes, and came across @die A., from the Netherlands, and his JFD Mushroom Summer Edition mix. I loved it. And if you’ve ever listened to any of Mark Farina’s Mushroom Jazz mixes, then you’ll love this mix too. After listening to it, I decided to reach out to @die A. to see if he would be interested in hooking me up with a guest mix here. Gladly, he gave me the one I had just listened to.

So if you like any of the music you’ve been listening to here, then you will definitely like this guest mix. So check it out! No tracklisting for this one.

Enjoy, and thanks to @die A. for providing this mix.

This past Friday I was invited back to Sakana for a night of mixing up some house music. This time we were going to do a legitimate live recording of each of the dj’s. But….. we didn’t have an extra cord to hookup my laptop…which sucks, because I feel like it was the best live set I’ve done. It felt very good. And the world will never know….

So like I’ve done in the past, I re-recorded the set that I did at home so that I could share it with you folks. There’s one big user error in the recording, that I forgot to edit out. Lets just say I pressed the wrong button. So just ignore it. Otherwise, I think this is a great set and great tracks.

Hip Hop

I figured it was time to return to some hip hop. I got inspired (read: felt guilty) by spending one too many hours on in the past week. I will say, that I felt very rusty mixing hip hop again. It had been at least a month since I’ve mixed some hip hop, because I’ve been on a big house music kick. So there are a couple rough blends, but nothing terrible. I wasn’t going to even post this, but I had to listen to it a few times before convincing myself it was legit. But I like it.

Here’s the tracks…

  1. Pete Rock & CL Smooth – In The House (Instrumental)
  2. Pete Rock Ft. Mc Eiht – One Life To Live
  3. Ghostface Killah – Mighty Healthy
  4. KRS One – Sound of Da Police
  5. Akinyele – Worldwide
  6. K-Def – Take a Drive
  7. Nujabes – Eclipse
  8. Mos Def – Habitat (Instrumental)
  9. Yesterdays New Quintet – Uno Esta
  10. Delphonics/Ghostface Killah – After the Smoke Is Clear
  11. Jay-Z Ft. Mary J. Blige – Cant Knock the Hustle
  12. Busta Rhymes – Put Your Hands Where My Eyes Could See
  13. Rob Swift – I’m Leaving
