T_! Lean up

This is a pretty old mix, but it's a big one, so I figured it could do with another mention. I assumed that the artist credit was a typo, but nope, this was put down by none other than dj "t+underscore+explanation-point", back in January... Yep. I'm still trying to understand what the deal is with british neo-bass dudes and cryptic, single letter dj names.

Strange handles aside, this has a real nice energy and flow, flawless mixing, and covers a pretty wide range of tunes. Extra wild was the inclusion of the proto-jungle hardcore joint 'we are e', which I first heard Dara drop in a history-lesson radio set more than ten years ago.. I did not see that coming.

In the Street

It was hard to gauge the sheer scale of people's reactions to the news, at least from the [relatively] quiet couch I watched the returns on. The next day, as I eased back into my regular work routine, more than a little jammed up, I started to make my way through the sea of posts and youtube clips that had come down the pipe. It's a lot to process, and it's hard to pick any one piece, but this sums up the mood pretty well, I think:

It's a wrap

I cut the devil in half/i cut him down to three three three


Me: Judy got me up at 5:30 to beat the lines at the polls. I had to use an affadavit because they still had me down for the old address.. But I think it went though.

Pop/M: Please re send?

Me: never mind, no big deal. Just up extra early, just voted.

Pop/M: Great! The Republicans crapped in thear pants. Was there a long line at 6?

Me: Not out here, but I think it's pretty likely there's lines now.

Pop/M: Think this was a really book txt from your bro. I was thinking abt a channel 13 show abt the dinosaur comes being found in Alaska. Now this is Daniel:

think before the ice age alaska was all right climate wise.

Pop/M: a really <cool> txt dinosaur <bones>

Battery Charge

I was listening to bok bok's radio show a while back, and this came on. Sounds like shadetek is trying a bassline ting.
