The lead-up to this year’s total eclipse was a bit hectic for me and I meant to release these mixes prior to leaving for Oregon this past week… Unfortunately, I had some trouble accessing my domain (hackers? I blame Russia…) until now. So here ya go! A little late, but still worth it IMO.
This first mix is a collection of 130-140bpm, but still downtempo-ish breakbeat from the last 15 years. I have a growing collection of what I’ve come to classify as ‘pretty-breaks’ in my music library. This is the first mix I’ve done with said collection and I am very happy with how it turned out. Expect more along this vibe in the future.

The second mix is also different from my normal house and techno sound. In this mix, I explored the hard, fast, and psychedelic side of things–music that I’ve enjoyed dancing to over the years, but never had enough material to really get into a mix. This one is a long-player, clocking in around 2 hours and over 20 tracks. It was so much fun to record that I am thinking about making this style/speed more prominent in future mixes.
