Thanks to ZZK’s mixtapes! My picks are the Diploesque Villa Diamante mix and the laid-back Chancha Via Curcuito album mixtape. Makes me think I should pony up the $17.98 and move both the ZZK compilation and the Rodante album from my wishlist to my hard drive.
Speaking of Diplo, the Benzi/Diplo collabo mixtape is out: Fear and Loathing in Hunts Vegas. It’s the Radiohead / Saul Williams pricing model, so pay what you want. I took advantage of my 20% raise–I went back to full-time employment–and gave a generous $8.
Your ambient history lesson
As I get older I have more musical patience. Songs that don’t go anywhere are tolerable; some of them (like the mighty mighty deathprod) are awesome. So it is with Gas’ complete discography (strangely cheapest when bought as mp3′s through a British site). The music sneaks up on you, so take your time with Boomkat’s full-length samples.
Mp3 deal of the
week month lifetime!
Speaking of history, travel back to 1999 and get Mos Def’s Black on Both Sides for $2!
Did you hear me? TWO DOLLARS!!! Wow!
