Classic Soulstrut Mixes

... that aren't in the Mix section.

I recently unearthed an old external hard drive which contained some Soulstrut mixes I had saved way back when. I shall post them in this thraed for anyone who missed out the first time round. Plaese to add on.

We begin with an essential.

Whitelilly - Bottom of the Universe.

Here is the inimitable James waxing lyrical on this now mythical mix:
This mix is sui generis, unfuckwithable, and as fathomless as the day is long. It's on the ever-shortening list of shit that I listen to every once in a while--even if it???s sunny outside and all is well and I'm working on this Orangina here and I really don???t fuckin??? feel like listening to anything that dark and lovely--just to gauge where I'm at. The heart is a muscle, you know? When you're tired of this mix, you're tired of life.

And a note to Blighty and whoever else hasn???t heard it yet but wants to: This mix will not--I repeat, will not--split your wig and/or melt your face. Its merits will not be immediately apparent (my first thought upon hearing it was ???Wow, this is very...long???), and it will not reward The Missouri Listen (???Show me!???). Despite the big talk, please do not expect it to gut you like a blunt and reconstruct your design. Rather, it is the grass--let it work.

Whitelilly - Bottom of the Universe.

    Drew Nice - People music

    It all began with these unassuming words:

    Hey fam,

    Here's something I've been working on for a little while that I thought some of you would dig.

    There was something about the man's tone, the way he just threw this heavy-hitting mix out there, tracklist and all as something he 'thought some of us would dig'. There is an underlying grown-man vibe about not only the tracks he selected but also the journey he takes you on.

    This mix (and it's sequel) made an impact on many strutters - I for one knew that after hearing this for the first time, my game needed to be stepped the hell up.

    Drew Nice: a big dude whose presence round these parts is sorely missed.

    Sorry for this, Bassie. I don't know what happened.
    I just checked the zip file I uploaded and it opened without any problem.
    Please, let me know if you need your mix and I'll upload it in another service.

  • I was just thinking of making a thread like this! The Whitelilly is great, and I'm checking out "My Yacht Belongs in Your Marina" as I type.

    One of my favorites is the pdx2nyc mix by FredFades from a year or two ago: http://www.soulstrut.com/index.php/mixes/fredfades_-_pdx2nyc_2010/

    I've lost that one. Is there a download link available?

    Mike the 2600 King's "Heavy Session" came on the ipod this morning, I had forgotten how much this mix slays.

    Morse Code's "Fusion Batches" is pretty classic.

    Delay's "Psycrunk" and "Eastern Block Party" are incredible.

    Did "Soul Boulders" get mentioned?

    A lot of great mixes came out of soulstrut.

    This was a Soulstrut mix originally? I didn't know that. Just bought Vol2 on CD a few months ago which made me look for vol1. Didn't find a reference to SLSTRT anywhere!

    Miss the days when putting a professionally packaged mix CD out was kind of a big deal???Now with Serato and Ubquitous MP3s along with Soundcloud, Mixcloud, etc???. so easy to put something together.

    I guess its more classic mixes from Soultrutters? I don't think any of the other ones I mentioned were on the strut per se, but they got threads here and I wouldn't have copped them without those.

    I have some older psych mixes from the Strut from 5 or 6 years ago. Gotta find the files. I'll put 'em up when i do ; )

  • Haven't checked the mix section in any great depth but these have been picked up & enjoyed over the years (one's not a mix, but got sweated BITD)



    Also I'm a fan of these:

    Johnny Paycheck ??? Highlife and Blues
    Fatback ??? Prestige OG MONo mix
    Reynaldo ??? Straight Ahead 101
    Ras Nachum & Friends ??? Dubbing inna village style
    Various Bluewater, Cpeetz, Sportcasual

    Thank you, nzshadow. This means a lot.

    I'm getting married in September and working on a special little mix to play during diner, when I will have everyone captive...

    Appreciate the love. Never too far gone. - drewn
