One of the few positives of 2020 Pandemic is how much material J. Rocc has delivered us. Whether he's delivering a megamix, or a more subdued mix of rare joints; it's always funky.
After Moplen one of my fave producers these days is no doubt Boston dj/producer Kon aka Kristian Taylor aka King Of Nothing. His edits and remixes (often straight from the original master tapes) sets him on the same league as The Reflex, Dimitri From Paris, Moplen and Joey Negro... which means only quality, just killers no fillers! So it's a no brainer to me, I try to lay my hands on every piece of music this US maestro drops on the mighty black wax. In al my sets the past years there'd be at least a couple of Kon jams. No it's time for a retrospective! I don't own all his vinyl releases (yet ;-) but I all the ones I do have I put together here in this 4 hour+ strictly Vinyl Kon Tribute! Here's part 1!
The Crazy Forgotten 80's ( Its not the size of your mix its how you use it ) * Unedited - Mixed by Prince Paul
A lot of forgotten 80's NY rap classics . Some stuff that somehow gets forgotten on the master mixes . This is part 1 ! .... unedited so the human feel is real ;) Free Your mind and your ass will follow .
Went into the crates to pull a few selections from the great jazz label Muse. Tried to stay away from some of the sample-favorites (no Walt Barr or Catalyst this time around). Instead, it's a journey into the a variety of styles and flavors, some creative and beautiful music made by a wide range of musicians in the 70s and early 80s. There's definitely another stack of records I wasn't able to include this round, so maybe a part two will be in the works for the future. Tracklist: Dom Um Romao, Pat Martino, Cedar Walton, Joe Chambers, Mark Murphy, Deodato and Joao Donato, Eric Kloss Release date: 14 October 2020
AbcntMnded's mix just have that intangible funk. This might be my favorite of all his Highly Recommended mixes.
