Monday night at Beat Research was a lot of fun. Folks and friends came out in force, from veteran DJs to Tim’s family, & the vibes were real nice. Special thanks to Brian Coleman for rallying the people and bringing his deep crates of tunes he knew Tim loved. & Props to all the other DJs who threw down: David Day, Reverend Al, DJ Duo, Lenore, & Brynmore. Representing to the fullest –
I recorded the whole thing — close to 4 hours of songs people played b/c they remembered listening to them with Tim — a pretty special set of sets, to be sure. I didn’t bother to separate the tracks, however, or normalize the thing, so here it is in all its sprawling, messy, lovely glory: 3 hours and 52 minutes of techno, electro, hip-hop, dub, bmore, and much more –
Tribute to Tim Haslett :: Beat Research, 24 March 2008 (320kbps, 533.3mb)
I know the file is large, but I felt it was better to share it, as soon as I could, than wait to tweak it. It gets a little loud when Duo starts dropping bmore bombs about 2.5 hours in, but that’s kinda approp innit. Not sure how long I’ll be able to host the behemoth, so grab it now if’n you wanna.
Here’s the approximate breakdown accding to time of night; sorry, no tracklist –
David Day — 9:10pm – 10
Brian Coleman — 10 – 11:05
DJ Duo — 11:05 – 11:15
Reverend Al — 11:15 – 11:35
DJ Duo — 11:35 – 12:00
Lenore — 12:00 – 12:10
Brynmore — 12:10 – 12:20
Lenore — 12:20 – 12:28
Brian Coleman — 12:30 – 1:05am
Also! As mentioned in the previous post on Tim, DJ Duo and Carlos B devoted last week’s QE2 show to “the professor,” as they called him, and if you’re looking for (hours) more music inspired by and dedicated to Tim Haslett, get yourself over to the recently launched qe2 blogspot where they’ve got the whole dang 5-hour show uploaded for your listening pleasure.
And the man & his music echo on…and on…
I can only hope people will do as much for me.
