Pullin from the Stacks Ep. 11 - Mixed by DJ Ian Head

Another excellent episode of crackling gems by the illustrious crate digger, Ian Head.
We're back with a new episode! I'm going to slow down the weekly schedule and try and get something out every few weeks instead. Here's a few records I picked up while in Portland and Seattle last month. Lots of jazz with some funky folk mixed in.

Salamander Street Massacre - Mixed by DJ Sheep

While many of you were listening to ATCQ, De la, and Souls throughout your high school years, I wasn't nearly as enlightened. This mix pretty much captures my musical pallet circa 93-97.  The more bass, the better.  The more obscene and offensive the lyrics, the "realer" the music.  Enjoy.

It's been a decade since both my last installment of the Ign'ant mix tape series and my three-year column in HHC Magazine. After working hard to profile the most vile, rude, offensive rap music I could possibly procure, I decided to bury both endeavors and move on to other things. After all, I'd maxed out the IRS (Ign'ant Rating Scale) in every possible category: senseless violence, wanton misogyny, race-baiting, hare-trigger mayhem and total lack of respect for everything under the sun. At least that's what I thought - until I checked out DJ $heep's $alamander $treet Massacre. Well, now I can officially declare my career as ign'ant rap guru over. If nothing else, it's because a cut from my obscure, forgotten Gorilla Pimp$ showed up on a mix tape in 2014. And the said mix tape is dropping in possibly the softest, most (faux) politically correct climate the world has ever seen. That's proof there are sick fucks out there who deliver the word against all odds, and $heep, you are one of them. Salute. I bestow the crown unto you.

Stones Throw Podcast 90: Quaker Tape II by Katalyst

Good stuff right here. Don't sleep on the Quakers.

Quakers is a hip-hop collective boasting 30+ members and a core of three producers: Fuzzface, 7-Stu-7 and Katalyst. After their debut album on Stones Throw a couple years ago, Katalyst made a mix for Stones Throw podcast 72. Here's his second, Quaker Tape II, 40 minutes with everything from hip-hop, psychedelic soul to new wave. Whatever you call it, we call it "music."


Zealous Collector - DJ ADA

I first heard this mix in late 2014 and was impressed enough after my first listen to make a mental note to revisit the mix for the "best of" list at the end of the year. For whatever reason, this mix was negligently omitted from the list due to my lack of memory.  Well, better late than never,  Highly recommended mix of a diverse collection of funky music.  Enjoy.

Vinyl Porn Alert!

Here's an excellent interview of deejay/producer/vinyl collector Ollie Teeba, provided by the good folks at Dust & Grooves.  You can find all sorts of vinyl insight and cool pics HERE.  If you haven't done so already, I highly recommend copping Dust & Grooves' coffee table book of various vinyl collections, Dust & Grooves: Adventures in Record Collecting.
