This is the first half of a super limited edition 2 cd mix I put together circa 2010, consisting of songs from "The Artist", friends and colleagues he worked with over the years. Physical copies of the full mix were briefly made available exclusively at Turntable Lab LA, Street Sounds (both in Los Angeles), Amoeba Music, and shows I was performing at, while supplies lasted. As expected, they were scooped up pretty much instantly, and for obvious reasons will never see print again. The cover photo was provided by Troy Gua, of "Le Petit You-Know-Who" fame. The fine folks at URB MAGAZINE gave the mix a rating of 4.5 out of 5 stars.
