8-Hour House Party Mix

As some of you may know, I recently shot a music video for "The Vibe Is So Right", a song I made with MC ZULU that's coming out in the Spring on Planet Mu. We had a shoot that involved people dancing to the song (which happens to be 130 beats per minute), and we needed all the dancing to be in sync with  the song, but I didn't wanna force everybody to listen to the song itself over and over again through the whole 8-hour shoot. The solution? An 8-hour mixtape at 130bpm, duhhh.

Obviously I didn't do this live in one take--this one I pieced together in a DAW. I don't want all that hassle to go to waste, so I'm posting the entire 8-hour mix for everybody to download. Feel free to use it as the soundtrack for your next house party, or as the background for all your other 8-hour activities: the work day, sleeping, getting a new driver's license, taking the Megabus home for Christmas, etc.

Ghetto House Classics (Abstractor Podcast exclusive)

Ghetto House (or Booty House) is basically just a fast, dirty style of house music that came out of Chicago in the 1990s, and paved the way for juke and footwork. I grew up in Kansas City, and we heard this stuff at all the raves back in the day–it was a major staple of growing up as a party kid in the Midwest. Here's a mix I did for a really awesome blog called Abstractor of all my fave Ghetto House tunes.

Year-End Bashment Roundup (Cualquier Otra Cosa Podcast exclusive)

Here's a mix I did a couple of weeks ago as an exclusive for a Spanish podcast called Cualquier Otra Cosa. It's a mix of all my fave Bashment tunes from the last year or so. For those wondering what the hell I'm talking about, "Bashment" basically means up-tempo, party-time, lose-your-shit dancehall (and other Caribbean-flavored music: uk funky, future garage, soca, whatever). They only have it up streaming, so here's the download link!
