Five Mixes For Friday

Looking for a longer listen? We got five on it.

Kanye West – The Life of Pablo – chopped, not screwed

DJ Candlestick is a good DJ name. And ‘The Chops of Pablo’ is a good mix.

TLOP gets the dripping wax make-over: heated up, slowed down, with perfectly timed chops trickling from the top.

Tobacco – Summer Mix for Self-Titled Magazine

Time to stretch out your inner weirdo with Tobacco‘s near-perfect summer blend of melancholia. Sounds like: Spongebob staring out from the window of his pineapple house, wondering what’s the point of it all.
