I’m reviving an old music blog at the end of 2021?

Maybe it’s foolish, and maybe I’m the only one who misses the blog ol’ days, but I’m gonna give it a shot. I’ll be working on restoring some of the old content, though much of it was lost. If there’s interest, I’ll try to figure out how to safely share some of the old remix sunday archives.

For now though, you can find all the label’s releases here, on bandcamp, or anywhere you listen to music these days. I’ve also still got copies of some of the old vinyl releases, and I’m planning a set of charitable cassette compilations to raise awareness about the continued [mis]use of broken windows policing methods.

Plus I’ve put together a playlists section with a handful of spotify lists that hopefully start to capture a [slightly] updated version of the moods we used to peddle. Give those a listen and a ❤ if you would be so kind. If people want me to put together soundcloud playlists, or something else, give me a holler.

  • Dubbel Dutch – Slow Club Mix

    Dubbel Dutch says…

    Record high temperatures in Texas this week and I’m feeling kinda sluggish. This mix is inspired by O.G. Ron C’s F-Action mixtape series. I decided to take some of my favorite Jersey Club RnB remixes of the moment and slow em down a bit.

    I feel the same way. Summer in New York is oppressive! I’m out to the northwest on Saturday, thank goodness.

    Truancy Volume 11: NGUZUNGUZU (25minutes sc)

    “The Massacooramaan, also known as Sea Master, is a huge, hairy, man-like creature that lives in rivers in the interior. The name is derived from the chapters of redemption. This beast is almost untamed-looking, with the appearance of a wild Berhane, but don’t be fooled: It is a fearsome thing that capsizes small boats and eats the occupants.”

  • Palms Out Mix Series Vol. 1: Snack & C’mish

    A few weeks ago, my friend Ben invited me to eat Korean BBQ with him and his friends. I was lucky enough to meet one of his friends, Jay, a very sweet guy who goes by the name Snackmaster. He knew Palms Out, and told me he had grabbed a Chromeo edit a few weeks before from Remix Sunday, for the mix he and his padna C’mish had recently done for Lemon-Red. Of course I had no idea which song he was talking about, and felt like a fool. But it was all for the best – I asked him if he’d be interested in being the first up in our brand new feature–the Palms Out Sounds Mix Series–where we ask your favorite DJs to step outside the box- and create a special mix they’ve always fantasized about. Lucky for me (and you) Snack & C’mish were down, and the result is this absurdly great mix of classic electro, disco, and house: Midnight Run.
