Monday Mixtape -Shenanigans XV

Lots of tracks in here that I’ve never used in a mix before; and also, a few shiny new bootlegs from those lovely people over at http://bootiemashup.com/blog/. The one that crosses The Rolling Stones’ “Gimme Shelter” with “Machine Gun” by The Commodores is particularly bodacious.

Other highlights: a splendidly funky mix of Alabama 3, some Soulwax insanity courtesy of remixes of Pulp and MGMT, some Rage Against The Machine and KRS-1 mixes (as found on the wonderful Life Support Machine blog, also worth an hour of your time to explore), and an opening guest vocal from John Locke.

Monday Mixtape – D20-001

The CD-length, 90-minute mixes take me weeks to produce and if I’m not careful, I end up losing interest in them and they lay unfinished on my hard drive.
