New mix of hip-hop and original samples. I was filing away some records today and I realized that it's been months since I've posted an MCL episode. Well here's a quick one, mixed live with 100% original vinyl pressings. Tracks and samples from the likes of Large Professor, Jay Dee, Pete Rock, Ski Beatz, Count Bass D, and more. Enjoy!

Part II of A Journey Through J Dilla's Rock Crates, mixed by Bowls. This one's about 20 minutes longer than the first volume, but the format (and purpose) remains the same. The patience and discipline Dilla exercised when listening to records is absolutely second-to-none...check 19:00 - 25:00 of this mix if you need some good evidence. This was recorded LIVE with two turntables, a mixer, and a crate of 100% original vinyl pressings. Enjoy, and RIP J DILLA.
Radski dropped by for a special guest mix, and he brought a crate full of jazz-funk rarities. The audio on the video isn't wonderful, but its worth a look just to catch some of the LP covers that he flashes. Great selection from one of Nashville's most renowned crate diggers. The MP3 download is a clean audio rip, straight from the mixer. Enjoy!

Bowls in the mix with a selection of J Dilla's rock samples. This one's around 37 minutes long, but its not one of those jam-packed break extravaganzas. I decided to let a few of the songs breathe, due in large part to J Dilla's ear for samples. His patience in listening all the way through a 10-minute psych freak-out, only to grab four seconds at the 6:14 mark, is almost mind-numbing. See for yourself with the latest episode of Music City Living. Oh and in case you forgot...these are all original wax pressings. The only way to go!
I decided to take last week off because of the flooding here in Nashville. I could have very easily lost all my records, and I consider myself extremely lucky. The show must go on, however, so this week I decided to spin another set of original samples. This set has a decidedly soulful flavor, featuring samples used by the likes of Count Bass-D, Common, Tanya Morgan, 9th Wonder, J Dilla, and many more. All live, and ALL VINYL. Enjoy.
