Positive Vibrations for the End of the World

I finished another mix.

I am calling this one "Positive Vibrations for the End of the World"

I will likely be submitting it to Tiny Mix Tapes as part of their end-of-the-week Chocolate Grinder mixes, but I figured since I had already finished the mixdown before running it by them, that I would post it here first. They may end up having me edit it in some way and I will write up a post explaining the theme of the mix when it is submitted there, but I will let you know when that happens.

DOTS Mixtape

I heardtell that the DOTS cafe over on 26th and Clinton, here in Portland, is having house DJs on Monday and Tuesday nights now, so I put together this mix to submit in hopes of filling one of those spots, and I figured I'd share the completed mix with you.

I really have all these ideas for mixes, and I usually write down the first 4-5 tracks on pieces of scrap paper that ultimately get lost somewhere in my room or bag, so I am going to try harder to actually go through and make these mixes rather than lose them forever, even if they are just micro mixes of a handful of songs. This will also be part of my promise to try and update this blog more.

Download here. It's kind of shitgazey.

Halloween Time!!

My friend Nick (DJ DJ TANNER) and I (Skyscraper) had talked about doing a Halloween tape since last year, but we didn't get around to it until now.

Listen to/download the tracks over at my bandcamp page, and you can buy one of the tapes from Warm Gospel.

I've also released a number of new tapes on the label, including a new one from DJ DJ TANNER, Theodore Schafer, and Skyscraper.

Currently underway is a tape from Ames, IA's JUXWL, another one from DJ DJ TANNER, and a Warm Gospel compilation, which I am still accepting tracks for, so send me your music if you want it to be included on the compilation.
