Mo Jazz

As promsed here is part 1 and 2 of dj ocky's Mo Jazz. Some deep jazz, some known jazz, some straight jazz and some funky jazz, over 2 hours of great music! I will try to get a track list from the man soon, or maybe i will even get a chance to write one up as i listen to it
plaese to enjoy

Hot Buttered Sole.

This is a mix that ocky gave me quite a while ago, lots of laid back funk and soul, it has a few great tracks that are reasonably well known, but you dont hear very often on mixtapes

Brazilian Wax

Another mix great mix from dj ocky, this one centering around brazilian music, I listen to this nearly every sunday morning while i drink my coffee, and get my son ready to go to the flea markets to look for records, highly recommended!

best served toasted

yet another older mixtape of mine

tracklist is something like
tracks by the pharcyde, j-live, dj krush, DITC, pete rock, PUTS, dj design, and more

at the moment i am dropping everything on megaupload links as i dont know if any one is downloading anything, so i cant be bothered swapping to divshare or rapid share as they delete the links after a while, so if you want different links let me know i the comments section

This one come to you from my mans Ocky. This is quality all the way through, and some serious records up in here too!

2006 in the mix

This is one from the vaults!
Recorded some time in 2006, straight from the mixer to mini disk, this was myself and Sammy_B doing our thing at the Bull and Bear in Adelaide, i think the whole recording goes for around 5 hours, this is just part 1 and runs a little over 3 hours, if there is enough (any?) response i will post the other files

Its not just anther dilla tribute

Quite a while ago, i started making a mixtape of music that i wanted to hear, it ended up being a dilla tape from about 15 minutes in until the end, mostly rarer and more obscure stuff that doesnt seem to pop up on mixes/comps etc

dL- looped with static
jill scott- brotha
Scritti Politti - Tinseltown To The Boogie Down
Gangstarr- Take 2 and pass
Frank N Dank Ma Dukes
The Roots- Dynamite
SV Fall In Love
SpaceK- Eve
Bilal- Reminisce
SpacecKLet the $ circulate
T-Love- Sunshine
KTA- Do you dig you
SV-Eyes Up
Dilla-It's Like That (Ft. Hodge Podge and Lacks)

The Genius that was

Francis Wolff took so many of my favourite pictures, i needed to post a few, I am sure you already know he took many of the blue note era jazz pics, which were used as press shots and lp covers

What a track!

This is a version of the Marvin Gaye classic by Brazilian super group Azymuth (brazilian music aficionado's and people who have seen brazilintime know whats up) , I play the 12" of this out quite a bit, and if i get enough responses to get me off my lazy ass to do a high quality rip from the vinyl it shall be done!

This is now around 12 or so months old and i just realized i had not posted it on here and a few people on here might be into it.
My friend needed to get a short clip together for his portfolio and asked if I could help him by making a beat for it, what you see below is what it evolved into, the looped footage was my idea, because i thought it fitted in with the whole loop based production i used for the project, the beat took around 2-3 hours to make from start to finish and the editing was all done in around 3-4 hours, so we are very happy with the footage we got from 6-8 hours work

got tapes?

the first is the moodswing mixtape, more of a chill tape than anything features tracks fro Roy ayers, Marvin Gaye, Portishead, The Roots and heaps more. Unfortunately i f**ked up the bounce of this one so the audio quality isnt the greatest.

Next is the table manners mixtape from 2000 or so, another Party tape includes Ozomatli, James Brown, Brand Nubian, A Tribe Called Quest, Gift of Gab, J5, Pharcyde,Aphrodite, 2Dogs, Trouble Funk and many more

live mix 99, this was recorded live at cargo i think and intro/outro added later, features tracks by Jurassic 5, Rahzel, Jungle Brothers,Rufus Thomas, James Brown, EPMD, Beastie Boys, Gangstarr, Masa Ace and more. the cuts are a little dated but it is 9 years old.

those last 2 are rar files because they are trackmarked.

this was done a few years ago for a record store here in adelaide, its all hip hop, has heaps of instrumentals because it was meant to be a promo thing with mc's guesting on it but there was beef so it never happened.

I know, I know, another blogger.
I dont really have time to dedicate to something like this, but as i learn more and more about life/music what ever, i really feel i should pass on some of the knowledge i have gained from others, i am not going to force any one to listen or agree to my point of view, if you like what i post, great, leave a comment, if you hate me and everything i stand for, thats great too, i am glad i touched you :)
some things i will post about
hip hop
vintage clothing
and many other things
so to start this off, here are some mixtapes

the first is a jazz mix called as the crow flies, it contains some personal favourite tracks of mine, expect to hear Horace Silver, Miles Davis, Ahmad Jamal, John Coltrane, Art Blakey and more

Its finally here, the First In Flight (belated) Summer Mixtape for 09, is now finished, this cd will be pressed in very limited numbers and be included with purchase from First in Flight. This will be the first in a small series of mixes.
