Prince & Friends: SEX GOD COME YES (Purple Reign VI(



I have been channeling my confusion and grief over the passing of the Purple One by diving deep in to my Prince archives and mixing up favorite, lesser-known tracks from Prince and his Purple Posse. No greatest hits here; this is a selection for Prince connoisseurs of live tracks, B-sides, stuff he produced for friends and special edition covers!

Purple Reign VI // track list: Sheila E. + Prince "Koo Koo" / Pink Cashmere / Sex / Ol' School Company / Cloreen Baconskin (with Morris Day) / When Doves Cry (Be Good Tanyas cover) / Condition of the Heart interlude > Mellow / 17 Days (solo piano) / Thieves in the Temple (+ Herbie Hancock cover) / Soft & Wet / Purple Music (demo + Chrissle & Kid Fury) / When Doves Cry (Ani DiFranco cover) / The Family "Yes" / Sheila E. "Strawberry Shortcake" / Come / The Question of U (live) / Morning Papers / Feel For You (+ Chaka Khan) / D'Angelo "Sometimes It Snows in April" (with Princess) / "Purple Rain / Beautiful Ones" (final performance on the "Piano and a Microphone" tour) / God \\ RIP PRN xo xo xo

Faked Out (the music of Chet Faker)

151-chet-faker-smoke

dBMcast#151: FAKED OUT // Mixed by DJ Playaduster
I've been hooked on the Chet Faker vibe since I first saw him perform last fall at Symbiosis, and that jones has only increased since he released his first full-length album "Built on Glass" in April. DJ Playaduster dug deep to find rare cuts, remixes and live performances and then spun them all in to this flowing, gorgeous, sultry mix here just for you. "Faked Out" also includes two tracks from musicians that resonate with the Chet Faker sound: James Blake and ODESZA. Enjoy!

Electrickery

135-Elektrickery

dBMcast #135: Electrickery
Mixed by DJ Playdusterat the Purple Palace, August 2013

A journey through audiolicious textures and grooves, Electrickery is an easy-flowin' ramble through some of the more ear-tickling tunes from some of our favorite producers: Four Tet, SaQi, Mount Kimbie, Odessza, Bonobo, Nico Jaar and Jon Hopkins. These DJs are in a class of their own, next level sound manipulators with a deep, unfailing sense of rhythm and pulse. The highlight of the mix may be the Russ Liquid tryptic, where we take three of his recent Soundcloud singles and blend them in to a melange of dub, disembodied voices, floating trumpet, broken beats and what sound like audio samples gathered at the edge of the known universe.


Though not quite as lulling and soft as Dreamstep, Electrickery is a soundtrack for daydreaming. Enjoy the ride and let us know where it takes you! Photo by Neil Girling.

Track list: Saqi "No Hay Bando" / Gramatik "You Don't Understand" / ODESZA "I Want You > How Did I Get Here?" / Little People "Electrickery" / Bonobo "First Fires" / Nicolas Jaar "Russian Dolls > Materials" / Mount Kimbie "Fall Out > So Many" / Saqi "Saturn > Quest's End" / Russ Liquid "Butterfly > Baby Cubed > Singing" / Four Tet "Pyramid" / Jon Hopkins "Sun Harmonics > Abandon Window" / ODESZA "iPlayUListen" \\ fini

It has been a decade since Will Holland aka Quantic released his first album on Tru Thoughts. Twelve albums later and Quantic has a vast discography; funky, soulful vibes with the Quantic Soul Orchestra, Flowering Inferno's reggae infused dub, cumbia with The Combo Barbaro, and more. The Best Of Quantic album highlights the stunning range of his work, bringing together some of the biggest tracks from across his many projects.

To celebrate the release and a decade of music from Quantic, the world famous J.Rocc (one of the finest DJs on the planet), created the Best Of Quantic Mix that perfectly incorporates electronic, jazz, dub, hip-hop, cumbia and the many more styles to come from Quantic over the span of ten years.

The Best of Quantic 1 * Jeremy Sole



From XLR8R: While lots of folks have only recently been turned on to cumbia and other Latin rhythms, guys like Will Holland (a.k.a. Quantic) have spent years digging through dusty crates of Central and South American vinyl, constantly in search of fresh beats and breaks. Yet Holland is more than just an old-school enthusiast, as he's fronted countless projects with different artists, musicians, and aims...the Tru Thoughts label has asked KCRW's Jeremy Sole to take a closer look at Quantic's entire body of work. To that end, Sole has assembled Lo Mejor y Sabor de Quantic: A Retrospective of Will Holland, a free 44-minute mixtape that weaves through the Quantic catalog and combines what Sole sees as the man's best work.

Blame it on the Boogie : A Tribute to Michael Jackson (Part 2)



Part 2 of my Michael Jackon Tribute series picks up where Part 1 ends, delving back in to the "Thriller" era before committing to an extended appreciation of "Bad" and then dropping in on a fast-paced, booty-rockin' exploration of MJ's underappreciated Late Period. I had no idead he was still putting out such amazing and ground-breaking music post-"Bad," tracks like "Scream", "They Don't Care About Us", "2 Bad", "Xscape" and "Jam." Like Part 1, this mix tells the MJ story through nontraditional tracks: home demos, remixes, dubs and rare tracks. I've been listening to both constantly these past 2 weeks, with mad appreciation for MJ's gift of groove to the world.

Against my better judgement, I had to start a third (and hopefully final!) installment in the tribute series. As I was mixing this one up, I kept finding amazing remixes and rarities online, but I wanted Part 2 to come in at under 80 minutes so it could be burned to CD, and the incoming rush of MJ music had to spill over in to a 3rd mix. A Michael Jackson "Trilogy" was unplanned when I first started out, but that is what this process has naturally evolved in to, so there it is. The man just put out too much great music -- blame it on the boogie!

Blame it on the Boogie : A Tribute to Michael Jackson (Part 1)





What could Burning Man and Michael Jackson possibly have in common? No jokes about how his hair exploded in to a flameball during the filming of that Pepsi commercial, please. I'm being serious here, and have thought about this question hard over the past week since learning of the King of Pop's passing to the other side. I've been thinking about the things I appreciate most about Burning Man -- freedom of expression, originality, devotion to creativity, genuineness, heart and soul, being brave enough to fully embody one's true self -- and feel like these qualities all came together in MJ and his music.

I felt moved to celebrate the gifts he gave to this world by making a musical mix that explores the evolution of the artist from his early career to the end. This musical journey starts with some selections from the Jackson 5, of course, before exploring Michael Jackson's early solo career, with a multifaceted look at "Off the Wall" and his original melding of disco grooves with Motown soul. Eventually, we reach "Thriller," looking at half of the album's hits from various different perspectives, before running out of time at the 79:45 mark -- just the right length to be able to burn this mix to CD. Part two, to be released in a couple of weeks, picks up with the second half of Thriller and runs through various side projects and the most intriguing sounds from his later releases.

Now, those listeners looking for a run-through of his greatest hits can, well, purchase or dig out his many "Greatest Hits" collections. In other words, this ain't your mamas Michael Jackson. The mix is built on alternate takes, mash-ups, early home demos, interviews and, especially, remixes. There are many, many remixes of Michael floating around out there in cyberspace, and I chose a wide variety of reinterpretations: some ready to bump your booty, some corny and others just plain weird.

I reveled in the wide, creative diversity of remixes that MJ inspired, and listening to them over the past week, it dawned on me just how universal his music was -- there was an essential DNA of heart, soul and groove in just about everything he performed, and those core elements were able to be fit in and reprogramed in all kinds of musical scenarios. House, reggae, grunge, glitch, ambient -- Michael's words and voice sounded natural in so many different genres and environments, in part because it was so real. And I guess that is why he was loved the whole world over -- his gift of song was universal. It touched the heart and moved the booty, no matter what culture or creed.
