A 90 and 100 BPM grab-bag of downtempo, electro, IDM, instrumental hiphop, old tracker modules, and other stuff I've been listening to this week. This mix features a couple recent purchases (Pete Rock's Petestrumentals and Paul Blackford's Betamax) and a couple tracks from an old favorite of mine, Red Snapper's Our Aim Is To Satisfy Red Snapper.

Just a couple of programming notes this week, first is that track 2 the Fila Brazillia mix of Freedom is played here from the original Refried Food CD; that remix is available online now from Fila Brazillia's bandcamp on a compilation called Remixes 95-99. A version of Refried Food itself (though without this version of Freedom) is available at DJ Food's bandcamp page. Refried Food is a classic, of course, and that Fila Brazillia remix collection looks pretty good too.
I think I picked up Our Aim Is To Satisfy Red Snapper shortly after it was first released, an impulse buy at the record store. The copy played in this hour is the US version on Matador Records, OLE 416-1. Keeping Pigs Together, Don't Go Nowhere, Bussing, and the whole D side (Alaska Street, Belladonna, and They're Hanging Me Tonight) are the reason I love this record. All instrumentals, sometimes chunky, sometimes light, sometimes quick, sometimes not. Check it out if you're a fan of late '90s early 2000s acid jazz and triphop.
I'm writing a bit late so the notes are short this week. One last recommendation, be sure to check out Paul Blackford's excellent Betamax on CPU Records. Just picked that up yesterday and have been loving it.
Anyway, I'll be back next week (uh-oh, Thursday April 1st) with an electro set. Something fast, energetic.
