This came as part of an email conversation which started as a twittersation.
and let me tell you.
all in one.
listen to this one, ever so hard, like you mean it.
ps: send me more.
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…
Verbena Selected vol. 4. (right click, save as). Tracklist is after the break.

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.
