So much beautiful music has been coming out of this Timeless project and it doesn’t seem to end. Yet another treat, this time in the form of a FREE mix of Arthur Verocai‘s life work by DJ Nuts. He’s an astute and rigorous historian of Brasil’s vast and varied musical culture. His record collection is legendary; his skills as a DJ are world class. Mochilla commissioned him to make this mix to help people understand the extraordinary legacy of Verocai. Many by now know Verocai’s self-titled album, some even know the more popular compositions and arrangements, but none have dug as hard as Nuts. Years of collecting and a strong friendship with Verocai himself have made this historic mix possible. 78 minutes of all Verocai compositions and arrangements is a dream come true.
For such a mix to be made, only a true Brasilian music aficionado could have created this, and we are honored to be able to share it with you. Without having heard this mix, I already get goosebumps by the sheer anticipation. Check out the full read on Vtech…let’s get nuts!

BBE is dropping bombs again. After some crazy compilation albums like DJ Spinna‘s “The Boogie Back” and John Morales‘ “The M&M Mixes” they’re back with some hot Ghetto Disco, Funk & African Boogie. Kon & Amir drop “Off Track Vol. III: Brooklyn” on us with a bang. We thought it would be nice to give ya’ll a taste of what you can expect from this double action packed album, by sharing Kon’s Continuous Mix. The album will be out later this month and can be bought HERE.
For over a decade the Red Bull Music Academy has given young, upcoming artists a place to develop themselves. Not only do they learn, but a very important part of the RBMA is creating and exposing! What better way to do this than to record a compilation album together with fellow participants as well as more established musicians and sometimes even legends.
Under the name ‘Various Assets’ this has been done several times. These CD’s were never released to the general public and contain unreleased material as well as music that has been released like Flying Lotus his “Tea Leaf Dancers” featuring Andreya Triana. These compilation CD’s were recorded all over the world from Melbourne to Seattle and from Toronto to Barcelona.
We from Moovmnt had never actually heard all of this material and thought it would be a good idea to select our favourites and release it as a mix. Some music you might have heard on our website already, but I can assure you that some of this material has been waiting, hidden in the dust, to come out of your speakers and give you a taste of the wonderful things that are going on at the Red Bull Music Academy.
We tried to keep the mix close to our personal taste and yet it contains a divers array of different kinds of music. Enjoy some tasteful hip hop, nu-soul, future funk, soulful house, electronic music with a dash of dubstep to go out with a bang. Now we’re off to London to soak up some of that RBMA energy, so enjoy this one. We’ll be keeping you updated about what goes on behind the scenes at the Academy, so tune in for some exclusive footage, music, etc.
Cali-based DJ Seano was hanging out with a few buddies (Cook Classics, JKim, Inka One and Greg The Dude) while the room filled with smoke. Meanwhile Seano did a 1-take mix and this is the result. This is some Jazz/Breaks/Funk shit with a lot of samples/originals. It was aired on a local radio station (Soundwaves Radio) and Seano wanted to share it with anybody who might be interested. Although it’s not your avarage Moovmnt post, it’s the foundation of a lot of modern day music and we grew up on this shit. So we thought you’d might like something slighty different for a change. Later today we’ll be dropping a little mix of our own, so we won’t leave you hungry while we’ll be on our way to London. RBMA here we come..
J Rocc (third member of Jaylib so to speak), put together this mixtape of Dilla, Madlib and Jaylib songs, as well as some of their sources, essentially telling the story of this group. Stones Throw had some promo copies of this CD floating around for a while that year, then took the Jaylib section and pressed it on a 45, which was released as the bonus 45 with “Champion Sound”. Both the CD and 45 are long out of stock. The photos were taken by B+ of Madlib in his studio in L.A. and Dilla in his in Detroit.
Dutch youngin’ Jameszoo (Beatt-apes crew member) has been DJ’ing for quite some time now and has played along side of people like Cinnaman (Beat Dimensions). Also keep an eye for him on the production side, but more about that on a different note. His style is very electronic and experimental, yet he tries to put some soulfulness in the mix. Clothing brand No Rest For The Obsessed decided to approach him to make a mixtape and here it is…“NRFTO MIX 001”. Y’skid did the recording, Tommy Smits the photography and NRFTO did the cover.
First of all I’d like to give due props to Osman for gettin’ is hip to Stalley. He sent us a video a few months back and we liked it a lot, but I personally never digged deeper than that. Now my man Deluge recently did and in light of his On-Point interview, I thought it would be only right to get ya’ll hip to Madstalley as well.
This Ohio native hailing from New York dropped his mixtape “MadStalley: The Autobiography” last year, done over re-workings of Madlib beats showcasing his potential. Now 2010 is definitely Stalley’s year to blow. Stalley’s heavily featured on Ski Beatz upcoming “24 Hour Karate School” mixtape (on Dame Dash’ Creative Control label) and is also set to release a project in collaboration with Sa-Ra Creative Partners.
All City just dropped a load on us and it’s huge! Check out this action-packed 30 minute mix containing various previous and future releases on the label, mixed by Om Unit. Consider this a preview of music still to come. Every month they will release a 45″, the L.A 10 inch series continues, a series of collaborative 12″, plus LPs from Onra, Knxwledge & more! Check out the Om Units – “Lightgrids” 45″ on sale from January.
Anthony Valadez just finished this mix and it’s exactly up our alley. Soul music that has been sitting in his record bag that he hardly gets to play out. “Stay Connected” is the name of this mix and you can download it HERE! Thanks for the mix and can’t wait to smell the L.A. beach this summer.
Sorry everyone for being on the late tip with this one, but I just came from the doctor who told me I got a pneumonia. Big shout out to the homie Kenny Fresh for spreading the word and thanks to Georgia Anne Muldrow & Dudley Perkins for blessing us with “GnD LA Mix” as a Kwanzaa gift. This free download mix/podcast includes music from Georgia’s & Dudley’s latest releases as well as exclusive sneak peaks from upcoming releases on their E1 Music imprint, SomeOthaShip Connect.
