DOWNLOAD MIX

It feels like we’re finally saying farewell to the longest winter ever. Flowers are now blooming in the park and the clouds have cleared and the sky is sunny. I originally started making this mix a bit ago but finally got around to finishing it. The images come from a beautiful Filson catalog which actually inspired the mix. Take it with you on your next trip into the woods or the mountains or through that next long slog through the winter.

Enjoy!

Long time no see! I wanted to jump back into the mix and share a few things I've been listening to lately. To make up for lost time, I've given you an hour and a half of new and noteworthy tunes (Wild Beasts, Metronomy and Illum Sphere), along with a few of my favorites from last year (King Krule's "Baby Blue", Jon Hopkins' "Immunity"). Hopefully the tracks I've put together will give your ears a bit of a spring cleaning, and potentially open you up to liking something new, even if it's from Skrillex (c'mon, give it a shot!).

The worst of winter is behind us, and hopefully for the warm weather and good music ahead, coast is clear.

So I decided to break my break. I had no choice. I got roped into the phenomenon that is True Detective. Never have I been so utterly obsessed with a television show. In my opinion, it was as close to perfect of a show television has ever produced. The 6 minute oner in episode 4 alone would make most filmmakers envious. My hat goes off to the two leads who were both brilliant, Nic Pizzolatto the show’s creator, and Cary Fukanaga who directed all 8 episodes.

With all of that being said, I don’t want to spoil any of the show with any further details. I could go on for days about my hair brain theories and opinions but I’ll spare you all that. Instead, I’ll keep it short and to the point. I have hand picked my favorite tracks from the show and compiled a mix of them in order of their appearance in the show. Think of it as a near complete soundtrack to the show. The cover features art from my pal Caleb Halter, who has posted guest mixes on the site, from our pitch with HBO on the show’s title treatment. We unfortunately didn’t win but that didn’t hold me back from enjoying the show. Also, I do plan to create a few spin off mixes based on the mood the music supervisors created with the curated tracks.

Lastly, if you enjoyed the show and this mix, try out one of my older mixes Backwood Burial, which may or may not inspired the show. Just sayin’

Enjoy!

As I usually do each year, I bring you the latest Christmas mix. And don’t forget to revisit the previous Christmas mixes too! This year is another indie take on the classics with an occasional seasonal or original thrown in for good measure. Have a warm, happy holiday and be sure to not only give gifts to family and friends but give a little to charity as well.

Enjoy!

♫ River.mp3


My wife gave birth to our first child on October 19 of this year and we named him River. He’s the most amazing thing I’ve ever made. This mix is for him. It’s a very personal mix that I thought I’d share with the mixblog followers.

Enjoy!

♫ MarioSader_Dystopians.mp3


Sneaking in like a specter before the spookiness of Halloween ends, is a new guest mix from my buddy, Mario Sader. Mario’s mix feels like if a John Carpenter horror film soundtrack was mixed with 80s dance music from a DJ from Ridley Scott’s Blade Runner. If that makes any sense. It’s “somewhere between electro-goth, dark-wave and new wave, (taking) you to the joyous days of no-future in the old world,” as Mario puts it.

While you’re at it, check out Mario’s site. He’s a very talented designer, creative director, and photographer. I personally love his photography work. Some explore dark urban architectural themes and macabre still life themes. Some feel cross processed and super saturated. Excellent stuff all around.

Enjoy!

This year’s annual Halloween mix comes in the form of super grimy, dark hip hop. I’ve been on a huge hip hop kick lately, mostly because the last year has been pretty EPIC for hip hop. I think it all started with Kendrick Lamar’s “Good Kid Maad City” and continued with Kanye’s latest, then came Earl Sweatshirt’s highly anticipated album and recently Pusha T’s latest.

All featured on this mix. Enjoy.

♫ AranQuinn_Yuss.mp3


Finally a new mix! Sorry, you know how it is. Busy, busy, busy. With a baby on the way, things can get pretty hectic.

So my good mate ol’ Aran “Shazz” Quinn-agin swooped in to the rescue. Aran is a super talented young lad from Ireland who draws and animates amazing stuff with us at The Mill+. Check his site out for some of his art and moving images.

Aran’s mix is called “Yuss.” It’s a “chill out mix to get through the Sunday booze blues.” We both agree it’s a perfect mix to zone out and get lost in.

Enjoy!

A am giving myself a new challenge; it’s to create a mix based on an interesting image I stumble upon versus what I usually do, which is create a mix around a concept and then create art. The first is “The Sexual Behaviour of Young People.” The image comes from an old Penguin book cover from the 70s.

I found the image while listening to Daft Punk’s latest album. That got my wheels turning as artists like Giorgio Moroder and Air came to mind. The sound of the mix has this 70s Euro-porn vibe to it. I’m pretty happy with how it turned out.

Enjoy!

Our good friends, Nora & Sean or Shnora as we call them, tied the knot on July 25th last week. We were fortunate enough to make it to their beautiful wedding on Pfeiffer Beach in Big Sur, California. If you have yet to visit do yourself a favor and do so immediately. It’s fantastic. The best part, minus the amazing Redwoods, warm locals, amazing vista views, floating marine layer, and winding roads—is the fact that you really have no cell reception or internet access. It’s a place to truly disconnect from technology and connect to nature.

This mix is dedicated to our beautiful friends. We wish you the best and love you both.
