The one new track this hour is #5 Inner City Killers by SkyTwoHigh from their album of the same name released last month on No Problema Tapes. Chunky, slow, textured beats; vaporwave influenced to varying degrees. I haven't spent much time with the album yet but it seems cool to me.

Tracks #9 Noddin' by Looza, #10 Only The Time by Silicon (not any of the artists named Silicon I've played before, I think), and #14 Estelle by Mefis & Assign are all from the old Tokyo Dawn tracker mod catalog. The last of those is particularly interesting to me because it clearly samples parts (drums) from the next track in this set, Adnan's by Orbital. I'm not sure that combination, that mix, totally works (I had to run Estelle about a semitone down) but it was fun to try.

I got a very late start on this mix - I've been up overnight, it's just about light outside this Friday morning - so I'm gonna leave the notes there. There are a lot of favorites here: HIA, Michna, Soul Oddity, and so on. As always check the links above if you hear something you like and want to find its source.

I'll be back next week with another mix, hopefully on Thursday evening this time. Probably something fast; will have to think about it a bit.
