Puro Agave – A Mix by DJ Gary-O – August 2016

Rainbow white

Another week and another mix in the can. Settled in for a few hours of minimal with a hint of tech house. Still working out a few kinks but I’m very happy to be spinning again. Thanks to everyone who tuned in Friday night to catch this live on Mixlr.

Has it really been three years? New Tech House Mix on Mixlr

Hard to believe it’s been more than three years since there’s been a post published here. Not sure if I’m upset for having neglected PaperBuddha or because three years have slipped by in a blink of an eye. Here we are though, still alive and enjoying good music.

Speaking of good music, I’ve made time for mixing again – man have I missed spinning choons! Today I used my Mixlr account and threw down a two-hour set with only a couple of hiccups, but nothing too tragic. It was fun. Mixlr is awesome – great replacement for Soundcloud plus you can stream live for up to three hours at a time with a premium account, and you can post your mixes as “showreels” for anyone to listen to on demand later.

Here’s a link to my mix today – “A Little Dust Off”. Hope you enjoy it. Gonna try to make this a regular thing and also post more random stuff about music and maybe some cool machine learning stuff too – my new thing – technology is amazing.

NOTE – audio doesn’t kick in until 1:47 for some reason so fast forward a wee bit.

Scott Edmondson – Cynicism Works Best For Me

cynicism meter

This just in from our friend, Scott (who may be a tad bitter about something):

The Feast of St. Valentine, otherwise known as St. Valentine’s day; it’s an occasion to celebrate the joys of Love and commemorate the supposedly ever-lasting nature of this evolutionary biochemical oddity. It’s the time when lovers young and old express their passions with chocolate, cards, designer gift-baskets and overpriced gim-cracks and gew-gaws from any number of over-priced retail centers in the hopes that their significant other will stick around a little longer (at least long enough to pay for one last dinner) or give them a “special” sexual favor. This carnival of the carnal extols the virtues of Love and all its triumphant endeavors.

But do you ever think of the Other Side of Love?

One is not truly human until one has felt the clammy grip of Love’s cold fingers upon head, balls and brain, enjoyed the tender embrace of a partner surrounded with the aura of worship, and felt it all slide South like an avalanche of shit on an orphan-village.

Troy was sacked over it (with vast loss of life and the resultant torture of millions of students who have had to study The Iliad). Endless poems, seemingly endless in their composition when one is force to listen to them, have been written by scorned lovers since man was first able to scribble sound onto clay tablet and assemble enough gullible friends to act as an emotional tampon. It is responsible for an unknown but immense percentage of the alcoholic beverage market, and probably even more rampant drug use.

This mix celebrates the dark side of Love. It can make you dance. It can also bring you to your knees. If you’re angry, you might enjoy this mix (though it’s not particularly hard, it is a bit dark in placed). If you’re not angry, this mix might make you angry, in which case you should listen to it again because you’ll appreciate it more the second time around.

People in love are annoying and should just stop it. Die in a fire made of rats, roaches and butt-cancer, the lot of you already! And fuck St. Valentine’s day in its fucking, cunting face.

“55 and Wet” – A Mix by DJ Gary-O

We just got back from Coachella Weekend #1 and I have to say that after 11 years of attending I still move it. This year we did the family thing and brought our son – total blast for all three of us. Personal highlights for me were Squeeze and dancing my ass off in the Do Lab.

One thing was quite unusual though – the weather. The first day of the show it was 55 degrees and a storm rolled through the Coachella Valley, making things a tad uncomfortable if you weren’t prepared with the proper clothing. As I’ve done at previous Coachella outings, I made a mix to commemorate the occasion – “55 and Wet”. It’s 1:35 minutes of Minimal, Techno, Tech House and some Breaks at the end. A good ride if you have the time.

Hope you enjoy the stuff. If you do, please support the artists by visiting Beatport or to pick up your faves.

Scott Edmondson – The Learning Curve

Our old friend Scott Edmondson sent us this mix and I couldn’t resist posting it up for the rest of you guys.

In his own words, it’s “pretty hard and housey, then the second part gets a little weird and then drops the BPMs down a bit.”

I‘ve been rocking this mix on my iPod since I visited Scott in Austin a few weeks ago. I really dig its dark, “late night” vibe.

I’m certainly looking forward to his next submission.

FREE REMIX ** G7 (Hunter Vaughan Re-hash) – Torqux & Twist

Paperbuddha favorite Hunter Vaughan has a new freebie that we are digging at the moment.  This is his twisted rehash of the G7 track by Torqux & Twist .  Dark and brooding is an understatement on this one, so grab it and drop it when the lights are low and watch the insanity ensue.  Also, check out his past releases on his Beatport page here.

Play it loud and enjoy!!

Der Tante Renate — H4xX02 Album Out Now

Hamburg Germany’s Audiolith Records would like to introduce Der Tante Renate and his new album H4xXo2, out today.  The album is dedicated to hacker subculture for its ability to anarchically tear doors apart and open eyes.  It goes way further than just being a simple album.  The tracks are a consistent progression of metallic, technoid electro-bam and an audio-visual hacking.  If you are a fan of bass-driven, glitchy sounds and radio play snippets ala Meat Beat Manifesto, this one will not disappoint.  Have a listen to the track Beast, and then go get the rest of the album.  Enjoy!!
