Shredstep is the second installment in my mixes inspired by riding. I picked tracks and arranged them in an order that I associate with snowboarding. I decided to make this a dubstep mix because I feel that all the different offshoots of it match the range of riding styles out there. From the easy riding and wide carving that can be equated to lovestep to hill bombing and kicker annihilating that can only be scored by borderline obnoxious wobbly sawtooth bass, Shredsteps got it all.
Features: Joker, Mount Kimbie, Sepalcure, Doctor P, Major Lazer, Mister Six, Skream, and plenty more.full tracklist available on request.
Mix 8 is short dubstep mix. It’s on the more dark smoker’s-lung-duck-having-sex synth side, so I guess you can consider it a Halloween mix? Maybe? Could be tighter but I spent most of the time tweaking a MAX/MSP patch to accompany it. The patch is a simple visualization that uses beat detection and some of the program’s Jitter objects. No link to a download unless you want a huge video file. Tracklisting on the video’s page. Oh and there’s a special guest appearance by DJ Mentiroso Mentiroso Pantalones En Fuego aka Tito Frijoles.
Here’s a look at the patch, really simple and straightforward stuff:
Summer’s halfway done, but for me the days of bbq’ing, fishing, and beaching during the weekday are all finished come Monday. Here’s a quick mix I made for you to enjoy during a private dance session or an all out underground desert rave (wait, how can it be underground if it’s in a desert…). It’s the longest mix I’ve done so far at an hour and ten’ish minutes so it might not be a commute listen like the other mixes I’ve done unless you’re like me and spend a one tenth of your day on a train. I hope you find the time to enjoy Mix #7 Dance, Super Happy!
Felt like being extra generous since it’s my birthday and all so today I’m providing you with not one, but TWO 40 minute mixes to enjoy when you don’t want to worry about what your iPod will shuffle to next.
Part one is an upbeat collection of party/dance/fistpump/getbizzay tunes. Part two starts off with some of my favorite recent chillllll dubstep beats and continues with some trip-hop, hip-hop beats, West Coast beatscene… uh beats, a Top 40 track you’re probably already sick of, and one of the sexiest voices I’ve heard in a good while.
I realize time is valuable so if I had to choose one, I like part two better. I mixed part one first so it’s a little rougher and part two is just generally more easy to hang out with (but that’s just me). ENJOY! (Click the down arrow to the right of the player to download)
Alphabetical/incomplete tracklist: Boards of Canada, Gonjasufi, Joker, Junk Culture, Martyn, Phantogram, Small Black, Tokimonsta (There’s also a song that contains the lyrics “Brazillian… Cocoa Butter Honey… Yeah…” so you could argue that you could gits dowwwn with this mix)
This is a mix I put together with that warm fuzzy feeling you get in your stomach in mind. This is the sound my heart makes (laser sound effects included) when my brain makes the mistake of falling in love :-P. Forward this to a loved one (present, future, or past) as a small free gift for Valentine’s Day (just don’t tell them it was free, say you paid for it on iTunes or something), or listen to it and pretend I mixed it just for you (because I really didn’t, I mixed this for ALL to enjoy!). I’m going to withhold on a tracklist this time, just listen to it. Crack open a bottle of wine or light up a serenade joint, cuddle up next to a special someone and enjoy.
Tracks are from a Josh and a Beth, a Sam and a Vashti, a J. and a J., a Michael and a Lauryn (now I’ve already revealed too much), and much, much more.

Here’s a 10 minute mix of some sweet oldies love songs that I grew up on (my dad loves the oldies station). It’s the prologue to my mix that I’ll be dropping sometime in the coming days (just needa do some artwork for it)

Enjoy, and stay tuned for Words I Can’t Say, A Love Mix…
This is one for those times when you want to take it easy down the hills. This is an anti-super-gnar-shreddly, and pro-wide-banking-carves breathe deep mix. This is a pow-wow and not a disco. You can do what I intend to do and take it to the slopes, or you can take it to a museum, or work, or to grandma’s house, to bed, for a walk, with a spliff or a brew, for fun. Either way, I hope you enjoy my little time out from the fun frenzy that is “The Chilled Out, Relax, Free Your Mind, Cool Out Mountain Mix”.
