I’m going on the self indulgent tip this Mixtape Mondays and blogging one of my own tapes. I put this mix up a few days ago and it’s basically me going on a club tangent. It touches on House, Techno, Uk Bass and a bunch of other easter eggs you will have to listen to find. In a way you could consider this my coming home mix. After living in Chile for close to a year, i’m around 2 weeks i’m heading back home to Sydney and i’m hyped to catch up with fam and friends, eat some good food, play some fun parties and spend a summer in Sydney. See errrrbody soon!!
Mike Who Vibes N Tings
Tracklist is on my soundcloud page, which also has a bunch of other tapes and podcasts floating around on it. Cop here…Mike Who
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 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
This Mixtape Monday we visit Lord of all lords Mosca’s radio 1 mix from a while back. Not much to be said that hasn’t already been said about Mosca. Next level producer pushing forward thinking goodness as well as a a dope genre hopping dj. If you haven’t heard this mix, your monday is now complete and you can thank me later.
I never get booked to play this old rock n roll and soul. I have a heap of it, but the only way you get to play it out is putting on your own parties. So I am doing just that. Teaming up with Dear Pluto and Sonny Syah, this is bound to have you shaking a tail feather into the wee hours of the morning. You know it is going to be a party.
