Melting Pot

Shows early on in a new year are often a little difficult to program. After you’ve done a retrospective of the prior year’s music, there’s a desire to move on to something new, but it takes time for new releases to start comin’ out. So, this first “real” show includes a couple of tracks from upcoming releases, a few from artists who should have records in 2011, and a few that slipped under my radar in 2010 or that I simply just did not play enough. One particularly interesting moment happens towards the end, when for some reason my laptop decided to play Mad Villian’s “Papermill” at a much slower speed, like it was chopped and screwed. That actually kept me from playing the Ghostface Killah track I just posted in Heavy Rotation, but everything worked out in the end. The show begins with a teaser from my set at Funky Sole on Saturday Jan. 8th. I’ll post up the full set tomorrow, along with a few pictures, but until then, enjoy yesterday’s show and remember Jan. 16th I’m doing a 2 hour tribute to Captain Beefheart!
