MIXTAPE MONDAYS! With mixes from Bathetic Records, Slumberland Records, The Find Magazine, and La 3h Heure!

Hope everyone had a fantastic time ringing in the new year. Day one of 2012 couldn’t have been more perfect for me. I spent most of it at the beach, so wanted to include a pic of my amazing day above. Below are some of the best compilations to come out recentlly, with an array of music and genres, so there is something for everyone. Enjoy!

Bathetic Records - Expressway Curated by Dirty Beaches and William Cody Watson

Bathetic Records just released a free 2012 compilation as a way to say thanks for a great 2011 and kick off 2012 with a bang. The mix was curated by Alex Zhang Huntai of Dirty Beaches, and William Cody Watson of Pink Priest. With contributions from both both Dirty Beaches and WCW, Lee Noble, Ela Orleans, Cough Cool, Speculator and lots more, it’s a fantastic way to celebrate 2012.

Bob42jh Films About Ghosts Mix for The Find Magazine

The self proclaimed “humanitarian for hip hop,” Youtube channel C-leb has dropped another fantastic mix for The Find Magazine. Earlier this year, Bob captured my heart with his 42 song compilation called Fallen Skies along with his label’s first compilation and release, Friends and Family. Bob focuses on jazzy instrumental tunes with lots of hip hop and Japanese influences. Obscure is an understatement, but nonetheless, there are always plenty of gems to be uncovered. Jamz from Evenings, Emancipator, Urban Romantic City, Paul Dateh and more on this mix.

BEST OF CMJ MUSIC MARATHON 2011

I never in my wildest dreams expected this year’s CMJ Music Marathon, a weeklong festival every October in various locations and venues across Manhattan, Brooklyn and beyond, to be so amazing. Besides getting to check out the hottest up-and-coming musical acts, it’s an opportunity to network with a different crowd of music industry folk that you most likely will not see at SXSW.  Where SXSW confirms who the game changers of the year will be, CMJ sets the stage for those acts to emerge. 
Big ups to the incredible crew of music loving bandits that made this trip so special, and reminded me how lucky I am to live the life I do. I put together a list of my top moments from this past week, and will be posting a mixtape of all of the artists that moved me. After all, we’re all just trying to feel something; it’s music that helps us get there. Enjoy! 

PRE-MEGABLAAG love fest @ IGIF’s awesome day party
Talking to hawtie drummer in Young Magic and      then catching their sweet live set. They are touring w/Youth Lagoon. Def catch them.

Ann of Silver      Swans dance moves
Small Plates      Record’s latest      signee, Gracie’s second show      ever, that included a choreographed boy band dance routine
The entire exfm crew,      but especially miss Jessica Ivy      Page
Catching two Guards shows and getting to tell them about me and @emilyhogan’s Guards fan club
Missing all 10 of Gauntlet      Hair’s shows (catching them in LA in November to make up for it) 
Grimes @ The Gorilla vs Bear/Yours Truly Party
The makeshift sketchy ass bathrooms at Glasslands
Lands & Peoples absolutely killing it at their      only performance
Losing my voice (again) and @phantomkicks making fun of      me about it. Pretty hilarious
Chrome Sparks & Steffaloo – I think      I almost cried
Jape live –      def one the top performances of the week
So much LA love w/homies Vanaprasta and Hands helping me represent
Caveman. WOW.
Flashing Wavves of awesome that is @FLASHLIGHTSBAND
Getting to harass Tanlines and hear their new record      that drops March 2012 via True      Panther Sounds. It’s really fantastic
Free booze (see: The Fader Fort, My parties, BK Vegan)
The newly formed Music Jew Crew w/ Knox Road
This Music Definitely Does Not Suck
Waking up in a strange Brooklyn apartment…by myself
Hard Mix
Getting to meet Nathaniel Whitcomb of Think of Smile and Dave Sutton of Stadiums & Shrines – two very      cool dudes, doing very cool things
The darlings in Snowmine,      Archie Powell, Conveyor and Gun Lake. You boys are too sweet.
Jimmy Morris comments. “Dre, if you’re      cold, put on some pants!”

Hugging it out with Mark of Yvynyl. Been a long time coming buddy
Wise Blood working out the kinks. Live set      is really coming together
Free swag (condoms, vinyl, shirts, stickers, magazines,      key chains, cd’s, tapes, etc)
Widowspeak playing some seriously sexy jamz
Me complaining about seeing Chad Valley too many times (guy is lovely, and probably really      needs a nap)
Beat Connection’s awkward on-stage banter “So…not      sure how long this is going to take to fix, you guys should prob go get      drinks now.” Adorable.
Finally meeting the wonderful Victor Ferreria of Sun Glitters
Bar hopping w/BK natives Selebrities and Adam of James      & Evander
Radiation City being one of the most talked      about artists of the fest. They are long time friends of my mine, was so      stoked for them
The Fader for reminding me print is not      dead, and if you thought it was, you clearly haven’t read the beautifully      crafted pages of The Fader Magazine.      This month’s ICON ISSUE is all about Notorious BIG, really great stuff. I      just renewed my subscription
DAVE SUCHANEK OF      BIGGER BRUSH MEDIA. I LOVE YOU BUT I HATE YOU. I OWE EVERYTHING TO YOU.      BEEN A PLEASURE MY FRIEND.
