If you've ever wanted to hear a beautiful chorus of crickets slowed down to sound almost exactly like humans singing in a choir, now is the time. What an amazing place we live.

Barrio Candela - Barrio Candela (2007) [Full Album]

Some Cumbia Reggae stylie for your Sunday. Full album here, apparently they are even more fantastic live. Sometimes you meet someone from Guatemala that hips you to a fresh international sound. Thanks Julissa. Global riddems go well with change.

Soulful Strings / Burning Spear

One of the best breakdance tracks ever (that never knew it would be a break track). "Burning Spear" is a reference to the flute in the flautist's hands which he is absolutely burning up. 1969 recording and still as fresh as ever in 2015.

DJ Vadim - Vad Forgive Me (Bullfrog Kid Koala Mix)

There is so much 90s in this jazzy stoner trip hop track. So much bassline too. Try some Vadim & Kid Koala on a sunny day.

2CELLOS - Thunderstruck [OFFICIAL VIDEO]

And now for a little classical thunder in your life.

2CELLOS - Hurt [OFFICIAL VIDEO] Johnny Cash cover

No words... Other than I want this played at my funeral after hearing it one time.

Shuggie Otis - Sweet Thang

One of the greatest songs in human history. It's fact. Shout out to Jay Pleckham from Cali for the request last night while i spun on a lonely thursday night in the midst of the shit show of pop music that Austin has slowly, reluctantly become. Shuggie is the truth.

Bob Marley vs. Lee "Scratch" Perry: The Best of the Upsetter Years 1970-...

Fantastic Lee Perry work here. Every track is a gem with Marley and the Upsetters at the height of their spiritual sound from 1970-1971. Sadly, this compilation was repackaged for cd and never released on vinyl.

True Dat (Interlude) by OutKast

Quite possibly my favorite hip hop interlude ever. If you older than 15 when this came out and weren't hearing or feeling it, you're probably not an outkast.

Ornette Coleman - The Shape of Jazz to Come (1959) [Full Album]

R.I.P. to one of the greatest to ever touch a horn. Changed the game.

Cumbia Sobre el Mar - Quantic

Cuz Quantic is one of the best live bands this side of the San Andreas fault. Here is their sound. Full of the world, full of change.

Vladislav Delay - Huone [Uncut]

Sometimes you just need to sit back and be taken on a minimal electronic journey. The progression of Delay's tracks are really lovely to listen to. I enjoy the hesitation and wandering in the middle of this one before it finds its way back home.

J Dilla - Mandarin Tea (Instrumental)

Happy 41st birthday to the best beat producer to ever do it. James Dewitt Yancey.

De Lata - Ronca Da Cuica

A nice bossa/Brazilian sounding jam right here. Different cultures pushing music and change = evolution.
