Tres Campeao - Pipomixes

 

World Cup is now underway. Brasil's first game is Thursday. I don't enjoy the WC. For me, it's a month of suffering that only ends well if Brasil lifts the cup at the end. I've been fortunate enough to experience that twice in my lifetime (94 and 02). The other WCs have lead to heartbreak and depression for a few days. Brasil is a favorite to win every WC per usual. However, being a favorite and lifting the copa are two different things. This isn't a WC mix, but there are drops from the 70 WC because Brasil 70 is considered the greatest team ever. Mix is actually inspired by Quasimoto. With Adventures of Quas; Madlib basically made an album mixing his favorite things; records, Sun Ra, and Melvin Van Pebbles. I took the same basic elements and added my favorite thing; Brasil futbol. Enjoy

Anderson Hunt Tape - Mixed by Pipomixes

 

 

Went through my vinyl collection and put aside everything that couldn't be found on any DSP; stonied it up; and then made a funky 4-track mega mix.

The Dust Mix - Mixed by DJ ADA

 

 

The award for first mix who gets a post on the blog in 2022 goes to DJ ADA! ADA is simply taking his mixes to another level. Highly Recommended.

Important Blog Announcement

 

As some of you may have already picked up on; I've taken to posting mixes on my Twitter account. A variety of factors have motivated this experiment. One, it's just easier for me to tweet mixes and share them from my twitter account. Two, there's a lot more traffic on social media than there is on blogs these days.

The blog will remain active. Going forward I'll use the blog for editorials, along with promoting the most elite of elite mixes. Consider it a new category more prestigious than the Highly Recommended label. My hope is that this change will keep me spreading mixes, and continue to preserve and celebrate the art form of the mixtape.
