Fight the Sour

now i know my CBCs

It’s a gorgeous day in Cambridge. The first day (that I’ve been here anyway — think I missed a couple while in Austin) that you want to wear a t-shirt outside, spend all day outside, cook meat outside, drink delicious beers outside, and listen to music like this —

      >>>> melonhands, fatmix


Between my own desire to share this charming mix, curated with care by Melonhands, and with recommendations (to dead links!) from Hua and requests from afar (incl amigos from Rio!), the sunny springy vibes were enough to compel a lil affective labor, extracting these notorious mixes from ye olde iPod. The following mix is my best guess at the actual infringer; just to test the bots a little, I’m pasting an img of the tracklist instead of the actual text.

    I like the CBC, especially their Belgians. But there
    are nicer patios in ATX, including Spider House and Uncle Billy’s.

    And Flipnotics.

    Yeah, the patio ain’t much, though being outside is often enough. Wish I’d known about those ATX spots when I was there a couple weeks ago! Next time…

    the Habibi track is by L-Wiz, btw. also on that Dub Police 12″ is an L-Wiz tune, “Egyptic” which samples a large chunk of Egyptian composer Soliman Gamil – from a great Touch LP – without permission.

    When I suggested to Dub Police that they were being hypocritical in asking me to pay exorbitant licensing fees for “Egyptic” – a song containing a big stolen uncleared sample, they got REALLY upset. I wanted to give Touch/Gamil some licensing money too, but No, they insisted ALL the money had to go to them.. So I never used it.

    RIAA sucks, but so do a lot of idiot/greedy small labels.

    their loss, jace… i’ve been sitting on egyptic for a while waiting for the right mix to dump it in, but hearing that makes me not want to play it… though i’m already trying to track down that soliman gamill tune…

    The “i need dubs” mix is waay too nice. Lots of tracks in that thing that I’ve neglected to spin in a long while — good to hear ’em again, & all put together so well. Hella thanks for passing that along.
