When someone else posts one of my mixes before I post it on here I know two things – it’s a great mix and I really need to get on posting them on here and not just my Mixcloud. I usually throw them up there first, let friends have some listens, get some feedback, and then tell more people. Follow me on there to be notified when I upload! Bottom line – mad props to the homie CK aka @leninstomb over at Postcultural for repping my July mix in a recent weekend party post.
For the 4th of July weekend we loaded up five deep plus the dog in the car with way too much crammed in the trunk and on our laps for a 5+ hour drive north on I5 to Mt. Shasta, where longtime superfriend @LizSF is originally from.
We had an amazing time including a crazy rafting trip, camping in the mountains next to a stream, a huge grill feast with Liz’s family, and finally – running my first 5 mile race on the morning of the 4th. It was tough with the altitude and temperature difference since I’m used to running in SF but I finished only slightly off pace and we booked it back to SF in time to catch the fireworks at Alamo Square Park.
These aren’t songs inspired by that trip, while I would make a great folky Americana mix, but songs that kept us going – whether driving that huge distance, sleeping 3 deep in a tiny tent, and most of all, dominating in running that race. Expect a lil moombahton, hip hop, dubstep, BASS, and of course my genre of choice – crunk haus.
