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
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.
Over the last week i somehow managed talk a hostel owner in chile to give me a job. I don’t really do that much, answer a few phone calls, respond to some emails and talk shit to other tourists about my wealth of knowledge on shoestring travel in South America. Long story short i sit on the internet generally being unproductive. So in the spirit of productivity i’m sharing some tunes that i have been playing too much today.
Gorilla Zoo Riddim lock alert. I made a cheeky edit of Gorilla Zoo’s tune, Hood Nigga a few days back, here it is in all it’s glory plus the original and a few other remixes and blends that are way better than mine. Woo
I was lucky enough to take a trip to Bolivia over the last 2 weeks, and have now only just started to shake the remnants of a pretty ferkin horrible journey home. Bolivia is an amazingly beautiful country and everyone i met bar too many tourists with hiking boots and bad dreadlocks were awsome people. I managed to check a few cities and have included a bunch of photos taken mostly by my lady who lucky for you takes way better photos than me. To top off this post of greatness i included some tunes that got me through fever induced bus rides, hotel room hallucinations, market lurks, hospital visits, twilight zone salt flats, border crossings and llama meat platters. If you buy me a drank once I’m home I will tell you some extended tales. Enjoy, Mike Who.
This is basically a bunch of awsome photos of Iquique from my Bro over here. To check more of his photos follow here MrTontoJack. . Iquique Is a city in the North of Chile and pretty much my second home. I won’t ramble too much and instead let you check the photos for a slice of this beautiful city nestled in between one of the driest deserts on the planet and the Pacific Ocean.
As you can see from the last two photos there was a fire down the block the other day it was pretty heavy, but luckily nobody was harmed bar a little damage to the local Panaderia.
To add some icing suger to your Churros here are some Summertime jams that have been been getting me through the recent heatwave. Saludos, Mike Who.
It’s been a while in between drinks for me and a terradome set on the show. We have been crazy busy with all the awsome guests we have had in so that is my excuse. Here is a mix i did a while back now on the show, It has a bunch of different tunes, Some Dancehall, Hip hop, Digital Cumbia vibes and some future beat biz. Shantan put it up on the Stolen Records soundcloud, and added a bunch of drops from some of those mentioned awsome guests. Here it is plus some freeloads from the mix. Enjoy. More mixes from me here.
