DecibelCast Vol. 18 “All Your Bass Are Belong to Us”

dB18

DecibelCast 18 was originally slated to be a compilation of bits from the nascent “alt./future” R&B scene (a particularly fertile area in 2013), but somewhere along the line, that idea was dropped. The revised version still has its share of divas and more than a few love ballads to boot, but there’s also lots of different odds and ends, mashups, remixes, bootlegs and the like. As the name (which is an obvious play on an old internet meme) might suggest the new unifying theme is the bass line. So be certain you listen to this one with a sub.

DecibelCast Vol. 14 “Wandering”

dB14

This latest DecibelCast is a mix of somewhat new material that has assisted me on my summer travelings across the country. From Vermont to Seattle and up to Stanwood, WA for a 6-week job at a glass school on a 15,000-acre tree farm; over to Montana for a wedding and a 3 day excursion into Glacier National Park; back to the east coast to North Carolina; and then on down to St. Pete, FL.

Another few weeks in NC and I’ll be on my way back to the North East Kingdom and a private glass studio in Greensboro, VT.

I’ve been fairly non-existent in the blogosphere for most of my trip and this mix may reflect that. It’s been in the works since I left Vermont almost 3 months ago. Whether you’re on the road or hunkered down allow this mix to help you wander through mental or physical space. Enjoy and safe travels.

DecibelCast Vol. 6 “Summer Soulstice Mixtape”

“Here it is a groove slightly transformed, just a bit of a break from the norm…” pretty much sums up this mix and it also sparks the memory of probably the most classic hip hop summer song of all time. That’s sort of what we were going for with this edition of DecibelCast, a familiar summer vibe but with a slightly tweaked, newer update, filled with tracks that bring forth that feeling of hot relaxing days and fun party nights.  There are a few old school classics and some remixes but also plenty of fresh brand new shit to keep it interesting as well.

This time around we also decided the best way to make a “mixtape” is to actually mix the damn thing, so we enlisted a compadre to do this proper.  FlyPaper Music has been DJing for quite some time and always holds it down (check out his soundcloud here). Although the mix was mostly curated by me (Evander Hologram), we both worked on this together for way too many long summer nights trying to make this thing perfect to bump for years to come (which also kinda explains why its coming mid-summer).  Either way we hope it moves your soul, makes you “just sit back and unwind” and most of all, enjoy, cause this is summertime.

Download the complete mix as one track below (tracked version coming soon..) And if you wish for a full track by track version unmixed send us a request and we can probably make it happen too.
