The Solace Of Grass

after finishing this, the 300th mixtape on dj luv’s records, i wanted to collect my thoughts and go for a walk in the countryside. take time to slowly ramble down the road communing with the land, contemplating the big blue sky, and the future. the auditory expedition contained within was created to enhance such wanderings. let’s go for a walk.

luv312 Jukeboxing

Jukeboxing

about six years ago i starting buying a new sound that was coming out of Chicago. it was raw with skittery beats, big drums, casio tones and mangled samples. seems a new generation had adopted a style of competitive dancing known as footwork and this new sound, sometimes called juke, is what drove the dancers wild. this is my first foray into this new, underground,  messed up and exciting evolution in electronic music; but it won’t be my last.

luv309 Or Is It

Or Is It?

the balearic  sound is hard to describe because it’s everything and nothing; it’s whatever you want it to be. balearic beat was birthed in Ibiza during the mid-eighties for well off vacationing party goers from all over the globe to lose their minds to as the sun rose on the beach. so it tends to be happy, eclectic, international, chill, danceable grooves full of positive vibes. it’s also kinda cheesy… or is it?

Drop Acid Not Bombs

in 1982 a simple bass synthesizer with built-in sequencer called the Roland TB-303 Bass Line was released to the public. initially marketed to guitarists as bass line accompaniment for solo practice only 10,000 units were manufactured. in the mid to late 80s a new wave of pioneering dance music producers discovered that by stressing and finessing the 303 a new world of groovy sound was opened up to them; resulting in the creation of acid house and the future of dance music. this is acid.
