Myths
by Mandrew on Mixcloud

A “jazz” mix of mystical, mythical meditations mostly from the seventies, including a bit of echoplex, electronics and unusual instrumentation. Features a number of tracks by/with members of Herbie Hancock’s Mwandishi group*, who everyone who knows me knows I am a bit obsessed with, plus one from the M’Boom LP I blogged about in my list of special records that I will get back to. And, the Tyner track features Alice Coltrane; everyone loves Alice. All from own vinyl collection.

2. Bennie Maupin – Ensenada*
3. Freddie Hubbard & Ilhan Mimaroglu – Monodrama

UK Funky Steppas

UKFUNKYBBQ

Something for the weather (finally): UK funky, new-step(?) with some 2step and ardkore-era numbers thrown in.

I initially intended this one to be 100% smiley and sunshiny, until I realised I simply don’t have enough tunes that don’t have at least a hint of darkness or sadness. Still, it’s got plenty of sexy and raucous moments. Click the pic to download or listen via Mixcloud link below:

For any snobs and purists: yes, again this was done with Ableton Live; I don’t have the right space to set up two decks and don’t have a good mixer anyway. I did pay money for these records (not the Sticky one, which isn’t available as a record to my knowledge). Plus, I like Ableton.

Another DJ mix done on Ableton, which I kept forgetting to finish. Probably not overly suited to the weather now; it started as one thing and kind of turned into something else. Great records anyway and very pleased with some of the mixing, though the last track is kind of tacked on. It’s only 42 minutes as I didn’t have much time left on SoundCloud. Hope it works. It’s downloadable too.
