DJBN April 2009 Mini-Mix

I recorded a new mini-mix this past weekend to satisfy all of our raving fans. Had a lot of fun with this one and was able to try a number of new technical things while sticking almost exclusively to hip/hop, both old and new. If you'd rather not stream it, the 35 minute MP3 can be downloaded by clicking on "DivShare".

I'd love to get some feedback, positive or negative. Enjoy!

I found J*Davey through a song of theirs called Mr. Mister and I found my way from there. I really enjoy this song because of its mellow yet jazz feel. They hail from LA and they dabble in a little bit of everything genre wise. They were introduced by a mutual friend in high school and have been a group ever since.

Consisting of Danny Daze, Joe Maz, and Gigamesh, this DJ trio is a remixing force to be reckoned with. Hailing from the Crooklyn Clan, DiscoTech sources from all genres of popular music (Coldplay, T.I., The Police, Rolling Stones, Kanye West, Foo Fighters, etc.) to create danceable hits. What seems most effective about them is their restraint, generally keeping much of what is recognizable to people intact while still introducing their own amplified beat production.

I first ran across Blu at the Keys to the City concert at the Independent. Even thought U-N-I headlined and I love their music, Blu managed to steal the show. The confidence in which this guy delivers is incredible. It's nice to see a lyricist like this gain some recognition and I'm excited to see what comes of his major label debut. In the meantime, don't miss his Below The Heaven
collaboration with producer Exile. The two are an incredible duo and I hope Exile works his way into the Warner Brothers deal. A few jazzed up tracks for your listening pleasure...


I heard the song "A.D.D." on another music blog and thought it was a lot of fun. I like the energy and after a little digging, I learned a little about XV and have linked up a few more songs.

I especially like the transition around the 3 minute mark of "Everything is Cool". Interesting to find out that this guy hails from Wichita, Kansas. Having grown up in Kansas, I know a few things are true: 1 - Tornado warning means go to the roof to watch 2 - We produce no good hip/hop (aka Tech N9ne from KCMO). I hope he can make a dent in the latter, so go ahead and keep an eye out for his upcoming album, "The Kid With the Green Backpack".
