    Thanks... Yes!  I have a stream deck controller in front of my mixer that controls all the cameras and media.  Huge balancing act but a fun challenge.

    That is a really cool setup, I can't think of any other video'ed mixes I've seen where you can peep the covers, the turntables, the whole scene, and silly psychedelic film clips all mixed live. Most people just set up the one camera. No half measures.


    Enjoy the music too obviously - the Shadow mix was great

    Thank you!  I've put a lot of thought, time, and $$ into this. It's been a labor of love and it's something I felt I needed to do to pay homage to all the great artists talked about on this site over the years. My goal is to do at least 100 episodes. I do wish I was getting more traction with the viewership, though, but I guess that will come in time.  It's hard to stick out with all the noise. The conceptual mixes like the Shadow one has boosted interest quite a bit.  So I expect to produce more thematic mixes like that in the future.

    Dude I'm all about themes!  Suggestions

    OH JESUS: All cover versions of Put Your Hand In the Hand that DON'T have a break

    0% FUNKY SOUL: Songs with "funky" or "soul" in the title that are neither funky nor have soul (I was thinking about starting a list of these on discogs, but why bother)

    CONCRETE JUNGLE: Back before musicians really knew what to do with synthesizers they just made random bleeps with tape splices and shit and called it Music Concrete (accent grave over the "e", I think). It was the future of music!  So anyways, just play that shit with a sped up Amen Brother break looped in the background.  For an hour.  BAM. Concrete Jungle.

    OH I GET IT: Puns and double entendrees.  No music, you just read titles, like "The price you got to pay to be free"....and then you wait a little bit and then it's like "free usually you means you don't pay.... get it?".  On to the next one....


    I'm telling you. This shit is hot.

  • Hahaha hell yeah, I would ABSOLUTELY listen to a Concrete Jungle mix. Fuck.

    As someone who spent a week putting together a mix of 23 Mr. Big Stuff versions, spinoffs and samplers, ridiculous themes would be right up my alley.

    0% Funky Soul should also include records with the funkiest-looking-ass covers that have zero funk on 'em.


    Low Self Esteem Rapps - self aggrandizement is cheap. but rap about how much you suck (a la Zeph Rubber & Glue, J-Zone 5 Star Hooptie, What's Up Fat Lip and so on) is rare. Dare I call it... raer

    Hooked On Phonetics - foreign cash-ins/covers with vocals being done by people who know zero words of English. The Kristina and Sound version of Mr. Big Stuff in my above mix still makes me piss myself laughing.

    Now That's What I Call Airhorn Samples - pretty self explanatory

  • The Softest Batch - headscratching songs with the greatest gap between "quality of break" and "quality of the entire rest of the song", I would legit listen to this

    Hahaha dammit tonight I’m going to a social distance wedding! I’m not even sure what that means except I know we all wear masks. I’m hoping the bride and groom are
    wearing one so when they say “you may now kiss the bride”... do they both lift it up real quick? I’m curious.

    Cool, I'll check that out if only because I'm not sure I ever listened to AEIOU2. Love the first AEIOU, sure this is a great selection.
