Dear Everyone. Go run, go ride a bike, go do something cardio.
Make your heart strong.
Then go eat a delicious hamburger.
I made this mixtape to cater to my specific type of running which is “run hard then die”. (more like jog). Anyway, although it is specific to my methods, you may find a use for it as well.

GO MY FRIENDS. I’m healing my broken heart with sweat and sunshine.
Oh, hey there. Just wanted to stop by and say hello. I’m still here, but barely…for now. To update you, I’ve been antisocial, keeping to myself and locked indoors; playing back records and music in the comfort of my own filth. Here’s a taste of what’s to come. You will be pleased.
Ed: It has a bit of a lazy start. apologies, I did this during breakfast. Groggy jones.

OK. Will you LISTEN to the Gigamesh remix of ‘My Girls’?? IT IS OUT OF CONTROL. I’ve been repeating it for a month and my goosebumps haven’t gone away.
here’s the Videoband’s bootleg ‘Shut up Chris Martin remix’ of Coldplay. Thank God someone shut that guy up already.
It’s been obscenely hot in LA and when it’s hot, you have a pool party. One of the requirements of a successful pool party is excellent music.
Who gives a shit about smooth technical mixing when you’re too busy blasting your friend with a Super Soaker 2000 Death Cannon Triple Barrel Lazer Machine Hydromaster?

PS: what’s the deal with hotlinking files? Obviously it’s an easy way to link to a file/mp3/whatever, but it totally kills me these days. I’m not making any money from this website, and when another site (sometimes even sponsored, to remain nameless) hotlinks to the files hosted on this site, I over-run my bandwidth allotment. I have TONS of bandwidth and it is usually pretty hard to do, but once it’s linked outside on other bigger websites, game over. There really aren’t any excuses with the multitudes of free online file hosting (zshare, megaupload, yousendit.)
I could care less about ‘being the first’ to break news on a track,
I could care less about getting credit for ‘being the source’ of a track,
and I could care less about getting a huge reader base.
Getting quality visitors works well enough by word of mouth.
So, other leechy music blogs, let’s show some proper netiquette…
…AND SAVE ME THE BANDWIDTH OVER-USAGE MONEY!
I have more than 1 reason to be thankful for these guys right now. Pizza, double cheeseburgers, spaghetti, delicious… all you can eat in Buffet Libre.
For the past year or so, these guys from Spain have been putting out some of the most tasteful mixtapes I’ve laid ears on (aka the Verbena series). It’s less of the ‘computer mixing trickery’ and more of just straight pure awesome track selection. The mixing is smooth, to the point, and seamless. No tacky trickery here to make up for the mindless process of building your tracklist around what ‘the blogs you follow on hypem‘ post weekly.
Today after my hellish first block of finals, I was looking for some relief and Marc from Buffet Libre was chillin in my mailbox to the rescue. I may not have ever mentioned here, but for the past months, a song has been haunting my memory. Ever since the day I tried to remember the title of it to play at a party. It would NOT come to me. From then on, a day hasn’t passed without me hearing the intro/vocals/rhythm of that mystery song.
That went on for about 3 months………and finally ended today. All thanks to…

OH, and that one track that was stuck in my head FOREVER was from both paris natives–
The Shoes – Knock Out (Tom Deluxx Remix)
I can’t believe I forgot the artist/title of this track. It’s even 4 starred in my library. I’ve even blogged about The Shoes before. Hmm funny, that was right around finals time as well. anyways. time to study more.
Some smarty pants from a website which will remain nameless thought he/she would be cool and decided to BCC everyone instead of CC.
BOOO!!! you can’t kill it!
Well, for all those of you who are about to embark on a week of finals that may or may not kill you, here are some compressed audio files that will keep you alive.
After not hearing from Neon Coyote for a while, MOCIAS John hits me back with an amazing update. They’ve added a new player to the pack, Chico Love, and he’s fitting in quite nicely. He’s also a fan of stuffing an insane amount of tracks into a ~20 minute timeframe, so be ready for some nice A.D.D. induced mixing. I’m so down. Track list to die for. makin me bounce as we speaaaaak.

Le Castle Vania is no stranger in the blog scene. I think he has an LA and ATL identity crisis. Maybe the letters are confusing to him. Maybe he’s epileptic AND albino??? Anyway, his albino ass be mixing shit straight from the vampire demon lairs themselves. VERY ENJOYABLE, YES VERY.
Here he is remixing GRUM’s ‘Go Back’. It doesn’t really need any remixing, but the LCV remix makes it explode in the chorus. really. explosion. like huge. in a metal kind of way.
Keep on rocking out and keep on replying to all, my friends.
