Ok so this Mixtape Monday is a history lesson, but it’s a fun histroy lesson that’s not actually that old. Today we’re revisiting one of the most hyped mixes of 2007, Ruckus Robotics The Music Machine Mix, which was awarded Solid Steels best mix of the Year in 07, which is pretty much the mixtape game equivalent to winning a Oscar. The mix itself goes everywhere from the Micky Mouse club to Bow Wow and the Avalanches to LCD soudsystem, all laced together with subtle cuts and playful samples to keep things fun and interesting. The mix is ripped from the Beat Oracle radio show on WCRS, so you will here some chit chat and history from Ruckus himself. Big Ups Beat Oracle for making this downloadable and available to the rest of the world. This mix won’t be for everyone, but for those who can appreciate a dj with serious skills and sense of humor, then this is for you. Ruckus Roboticus went on to release an insanely good album “Playing With Scratches” and continues to blow minds with mixtapes, originals, remixes and edits.
This Mixtape Monday i’m going on the self indulgent tip and posting a mix i just finished myself. Today’s Mix is a follow up to a last years Sucker For Love Volume 1. After a year of procrastinating and thinking about tunes that would make sense, it’s finally done an hour and 20 mins of Love related jams covering everything from Hip Hop, Soul and Funk to New Jack, Garage and Disco and everything in between. I’ve also thrown in a few freeloads from the mix because you know i’m nice like that. Much Love to all the Haters, Mike Who, xo
