Mix-Tape Wednesdays: Bag Raiders – January 2012 Mix

0

One of my biggest regrets was not discovering Bag Raiders until early last year. I must say that their self-titled album is still one of my top 5 favourite albums of all-time. If you haven’t heard their name before, I’m sure you’ve heard their single, ‘Shooting Stars’ in commercials to the ending credits of How To Make it in America (RIP). Earlier this week these Australian duo’s released their monthly mixtape. Enjoy and definitely check out more songs from these guys!

0

This four minute minimix is just a sample of what to expect in January 2012 when the first EP from OLIVER drops on January 16.

Vaughn Oliver (U-Tern) is one of Vancouver’s top-tier purveyors of cutting edge disco sleaze. Oliver Goldstein (aka Oligee) is a San Fernando Valley native and lifelong beat whisperer, a virtuosic overlord of third millennium romantifunk. Together they form OLIVER (one duo-riffic title!) a group built to take arms against a sea of sonic trouble.

Tracklist:

Oliver – Dirty Talk (Original Mix)
Oliver – Dirty Talk (Punks Jump Up Remix)
Oliver – Dirty Talk (Black Van Remix)
Oliver – Dirty Talk (Wax Motif remix)
Oliver – Walk With Me

Mix-Tape Wednesdays: Top 5 Favourite Essential Mixes of 2011

1

In three weeks 2011 is about to come to an end – bringing in a new year of music, mix-tapes and remixes. There was definitely one thing that changed and came to my attention this year with mix-tapes.. and that’s BBC Radio 1′s Essential Mixes. If you go on the official site you can vote for your favourite essential mix of the year. Unfortunately, I cannot just pick one, so I’ll list my top 5 favourite mixes.

Throughout this year, these essential mixes have blown up. More and more DJ’s and producers are getting the recognition they deserve because of this one to two hour mix. I think these essential mixes are also a good judgement of how DJ’s and producers perform during a live event – as most of these are recorded through a concert event. And to be honest with my readers, I find these mixes to be 100% accurate of what their actual playlist will be like. So next time, if you’re unsure about checking out a DJ/Producer at a show, listen to their essential mixes to get a feel.
