le.tanque xxxx nights: cam.hyder

September 26, 2010

we would like to present a new mix series to the blog.  le.tanque xxxx nights.  a challenge to come up with a new mix series was sent out to the le.tanque contributors and friends of contributors.

the first artist in the series is our very own cam hyder.  this first mix represents everything behind the thought of le.tanque xxxx nights.  it’s all about the special tracks that you listen to on your home stereo.  it’s the mix that’s to sharp for a dinner party, but can’t quite make the club.  it’s for those snowed in saturday nights or those nothing to do sunday mornings.  it’s new smoke or old scotch.  a moment to yourself to lay back on the couch with the headphones on.  not so much a dj mix as a collection of thoughts and favorite songs, new and old.

Keeping with the trend of some favorite labels of mine collaborating, check out the Hyperdub vs 3024 Exclusive Mix for Japan. I am slow in posting this, but Martyn’s contributions have been really growing on me. I have listened to the three song mix(Martyn – Is This Insanity (feat Spaceape – Ben Klock mix) TO Detachments – Circles (Martyn Round & Round mix) TO Deadboy – U’ve Been Hurting) on repeat and no matter where I am, no matter what I am working on – it gets me dancing! Kode9 is good as per usual, but if you listened to his DJ Kicks this year you won’t really be surprised. Check it out if you can.

ghostly picks stones throw / stones throw picks ghostly

September 5, 2010

I slept on this one . . .two of my favorite record labels picking their favorite songs from each others labels.  They are nice ones to have to complete the record collection and can be found for free or cheap on the internet if you look around.  Nothing really new in terms of songs, but a nice reminder of why these record labels are the best.

Official Album description: ‘To celebrate the unprecedented achievements of two of our favourite independent US labels we asked Peanut Butter Wolf who runs Stones Throw to pick his favourite tracks from Ghostly’s back catalogue; and in return asked Sam Valenti who runs Ghostly to pick his favourite tracks from Stones Throw’s back catalogue. The result is 20 tracks of some of the most innovative and fiercely independent US hip-hop, electronica, and jazz in the last 10 years.’

J Dilla – Make em NV
