Episode 34 - Reconstruct & ReUp

I recently had the pleasure of playing at the tied and Naughty Bad Fun Collective New Year party.  My slot was early in Room 2, a "Back To Mine" themed room made for a more laid back environment from the more upbeat Room 1.  It was so enjoyable getting the party started on a more eclectic tip, and I really felt good energy from the early attendees who enjoyed hearing something a little different than the usual *unst*unst*unst*.  Days after the party and other really great gigs, too, the sounds from that early set still stuck with me, inspiring me to go into the studio and distill 2+ hours of tracks into this reconstructed, reinterpreted version of my contribution to that evening...

Thanks to NBCF and tied for a great start to 2014!

Episode 33 - October in the Chair [Fall 2013 Mix]

"Enough," said October.
He stretched in his chair.
He cracked a cobnut with his teeth,

pulled out the kernel,
and threw the fragments of shell into the fire, where they hissed and spat and popped,
and he began...  

Excerpt from "October in the Chair" by Neil Gaiman


This mix is inspired by the beautiful start to Fall we've enjoyed here in Chicago,
with clear night skies and mild sunny days bringing an Indian Summer delight... 
October will bluster in any minute, now...

It's a warm Spring evening in Chicago, and I headed over to my friend My Boy Elroy's to simply set up and jam out, recording the evening as we went along.  This podcast episode is part one of the evening, with me starting up the front end of the mix until about the 48m mark, and Elroy closing out the back end...

Enjoy, and stay tuned for Part 2 (Episode 32), which takes things up just a tic!
