Here is a uber special mix by Mike Who that you can stretch or skate to at home before Saturday.

Also here are so free tunes that you will probably here on the night. Freeeeee. See you in the bunker.
This post is all about me getting a bit nostalgic about growing up and being a certified music nerd. I really just wanted an outlet to post some regular tunes that were significant to me back then, some embarrassing some not so much, non genre specific and i guess a little outlook into some of the stuff i have grown up on and what has maybe shaped some of the stuff i play out and vibe on now. I will try and give a little history on each of the tunes that were no doubt staples on my sisters walkman in primary school or my dodgy not so anti shock discman in high school. I never messed with that futuristic minidisc biz.I will try my best to hit up some friends and foes, other dj’s, producers and champion nerds to get involved on the concept and if all goes well hopefully we can make it a regular thing on the blog with guests breaking down a few of their primary or high school anthems.
Wow this popped up the other day and i lost my shit. Year 9 massive, me and a matey Gus who peeps now may know as Skryptcha used to trade C.D’s in high school and he put me onto Pun, Organized Konfusion, Atmosphere and so many other staples that shaped my tastes for years to come. The Ramon Morris horn line flip gives me shivers every time. This Tune still holds weight today more than 10 years later. Certified Boricua anthem and given the chance you will definitely hear me play this out.
MP3: Roger & Zapp- So Ruff, So Tuff
How is it possible not to freak of this tune, i remember being super young and hearing or seeing this on some strange movie i have no recollection of except this song. I waited till the credits rolled and they have all the songs from the movie, i wrote down every song getting my VCR pause game on. This was Pre Internet days so you couldn’t google shit, it took me a few more years to figure out what it actually was and i freaked when i did. Has been a staple in my crates ever since i started playing out. West coast whip anthem that never fails to get even the stiffest folks nodding their heads.
MP3: Cj Bolland- Suger Is Sweeter (Armand’s Drum And Bass Edit)
Seriously i can’t even remember how old i was when i heard this, maybe 10 or 11 but i remember it being on the wildfm 3 cd and just always having it on repeat because i vibed on it so much. Shameless cheese that I’m sure will turn the nose up of any true UK Garage heads. No doubt this track was big back then, and to see Jackmaster and Oneman on the boileroom live stream drop this to a full tent at the Notting Hill Carnival last year was both mind blowing and nostalgic. Check the footage for yourself. Here
This Mixtape Monday Goes legit. The one and only Cut Chemist live in the mix covering all matter of heat from between 1973 through to 79 on the disco, funk, soul and original breaks tip. Cut Chemist certainly needs no introduction,Without a doubt one of the most influential and amazing DJ/Proudcer, Crate Digger and tastemakers of the last 20 years. He has had his fingers in way too many musical pies ranging from production duties for Jurrassic 5 and Ozomatli too His collaborations with Shadow, mind blowing live shows as well cameos in Movies and docos. If your still interested get acquainted HERE.
For now get your Monday Morning blissed out vibes on to this ridiculously good set.
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
I’m back from my shoestring euro trip broker than ever, which means i’m back at work which also means Mixtape Mondays is back. To kick things off we are going with one of Stateside’s finest, FourcolorZack’s and his mix Weekday Warrior Pt 3. This got me through some long haul layovers and i’m sure you will all vibe off it. Dude has skills for days and and crazy way of making stuff that shouldn’t, work! Check the Evil Woman to Saturday in the park transition. BANANAS. Your mondays are now complete, go eat an icecream and dance. There are also a bunch of other amazing mixes on his soundcloud page worth checking. here
This mixtape Mondays we revisit a set from a while back from Mayer Hawthorne aka Dj Haircut at L.A’s much hyped Do over party. Let’s hope their weren’t too many chumps tweeting or texting emoticons while he was rolling through these tunes. Plenty of disco,funk, boogie, 80’s golden era rap classics and inappropriate OH SNAP drops to enjoy this monday.
This Mixtape Monday were going on an interglatic journey with Sydney homies Joey The Saint aka man of a million aliases and Bad Jackson aka Badfield one half of the wedding ring fingers. Aka’s out of the way these dudes have put together a tasty mix of all things Funk, Disco and cosmic goodness for there upcoming night at GoodGod, on the 25th called Mary’s Basement. More info Herrrr..MARY’S BASEMENT.. Wish i was in sydney for this night cause i’m sure it will be killer, go get freaky in the dark corners of GoodGod small club for me.
So as promised i have come through with my second podcast from the South American Continent. I have been here close to 5 months now so i am actually a month late on this one, but hey i got employed, and also started teaching English classes in the hood. To reedeem my broken promises of bi monthly podcasts i made this one longer. This podcast is heavily rooted in hip hop in which Chile has a massive history, it also touches on, funk, disco, broken beats, tech house and bass music. There was not nearly enough time to touch on cumbia, dancehall, reggae and the more 4×4 based sounds coming out of chile. This podcast was super hard to narrow down. All tunes and production come directly from Chile. This is by no means even a look into the depth Chile’s rich musical history or current output, but merely a snapshot into my crates and tunes i love from Chile. Enjoy and please share with any Chilean fam or friends abroad.
Saludos, Mike Who.
