Cadillac Summer Mixtape



Thirty three minutes : thirty three seconds of carefully selected bangers to help your rims gleam, your engine hum, ward off rain when the top down, and disrupt police radio.

Straight forward southern summer and car jams with a few west coast joints thrown in.

Dedicated to the dedication Burt G and the Reader are showing for their 1979 Coupe de Ville.

Yin Yang Book Club Mix


A  mix I did for Constance that encourages reflection and daydreaming. Designed for heavy tropical rain and napping, it falls apart and ends in a drone.

Side A is a short collection of soulful, haunting songs. Largely instrumental, the vibe is stoney, introspective, subtle.

Side B moves into abstract and atmospheric territory. A lot of computer generated music, but with an ear toward warm and droney tracks. I layered these barely musical songs with structured ones to create a moody collage.

Candlelight Slow Grind

11 Candlelight Cover


I tried to center this mix around a particular sonic palette… autotune vocals, synths, shimmery electronics and hard tropical drum patterns. I slowed most of the songs down and added lots of chimes and bell. Its not really dance music, but its druggy and sexy.

Memphis Murder Ballads

Memphis Murder Ballads


1993 -2001

Murder rap: An M-Town tradition? These 16 funkytown underground joints focus on homicide. Silver tones, smelly corpses, getaway cars, poison: these artist paint a picture of ghetto Memphis that’s threatening and detailed. Sadistic psychos who murder for laughs and nameless killers who fear the judgement of god. Ill haunted house beats… a brutally dark and disturbing vibe that’s distinctive of Memphis rap from the 1990s. Also there’s mad rapid-fire double time rapping, which I notice in a lot Memphis rap. Thanks to everyone uploading tape rips. In combination with a heavy sprinkling of gunshot samples, the tape pops add to the lofi, crunchy, grimey, sinister sound.
