Collected Mashups Vol. 2a: Year Of The Pig

The second volume of the Collected Mashups, this 2007 collection documents my expansive progression from the hip-hop-heavy blends of 2004-2006 to melodic/harmonic juxtapositions involving a wider array of genres, including electro, dream-pop, and dub/reggae.

Featuring "Trans Planet Insomnia," "Dr. C's Sexual Healing," "Dracula's 77 Nation Army," "F.E.A.R. Of Karma," and "Fool Of Mergen," as well as several long-unavailable tracks, this set is bound to pleasure your ears.

In a departure from Vol. 1, I've abandoned chronology (exact release dates) and arranged the songs in listening order as a proper album. Enjoy! Love, ~I

Archive Series Vol. III: not-I-podcast-01 - Premiere Hip-Hop Edition (special re-release)

This is a special re-release* of my first podcast, recorded back in 2007 (first released via Podomatic) and featuring quality hip-hop of the conscious, electronic, neo-old-school, non-commerical and underground varieties. It also includes three of my blends/mash-ups, all of which will re-appear on the imminent release of my Collected Mashups Vol. II.

This was mixed live with two turntables, one CD-player and a mixer from mostly vinyl sources. It being my first podcast, I naturally made a few beginner's mistakes, but listening again, I'm firmly convinced it stands the test of time, most especially because the music featured here more than adequately passes that test.

I call this a *special re-release because: 1.) It's been re-rendered into highest-quality VBR mp3s from the original wave file; and 2.) It's been cut into individual tracks so you can skip to and replay your favorite tracks.
