Autumn Leaves Pt. 2

It’s been a long couple of weeks grinding at my job. Long days, long nights. It always is this time of year. Tired back, aching shoulders at times, and my focus solely on what’s right in front of me. Usually I’d have more of my attention diverted towards music and thinking about what I’d like to play. How can I use this song and make it fit right in the mix ? Can I work in this progressive, minimal, dub, experimental techno joint without going all stomp, stomp, stomp ? Maybe people will enjoy this post-disco casio bleep music if I just throw a Lady WretchWretch accapella over it ?

I can safely say last night, these questions were not nagging me. I was exhausted after the day/night and diverted my mind from itself with a KenKen puzzle, a Warrior’s loss and the cat’s claws on my toes. A couple B vitamins, some Chinese Herbs, and a rare Red Bull a bit later, I felt alright, just wanting to listen to some beautiful music in a laid back groove. This set is what came of it. Lotsa soul, sprinkles of jazz, electronic, world, funk and hiphop. No bells and whistles, this is how I chill in ’09 til . . .
