Sloppy Joe’s “Whatever’s Gonna Be Is Gonna Be” Fun Mix 5!

since the end of last year i’ve yearned to make a carefree groovy mix but was never in the right frame of mind to get it done. now that things have gotten quite heavy for all of us we could use a mix of music that will put a smile on our faces and boogie in our butts. so i called in my old pal Sloppy Joe, who never disappoints with his patented “Fun Mix!” series. it’s been a while, but boy was it worth the wait. we hope it moves you.

luv378 Definitely A Juxtape

Definitely A Juxtape

it was the year 2000. i was running hip hop in this town when word came down the wire that El-P from the amazing NYC crew Company Flow had started a new label called Def Jux (later changed to Definitive Jux due to legal entanglements with a similarly named hip hop label). what followed was a deluge of great new forward thinking hip hop joints containing a similar strain of darkness that matched the uncertainty of the new millennium. this 20th anniversary Juxtape contains only Def Jux heavy hitters spitting tongue twisters. Definitive Jux indeed.

luv377 The Cold War

The Cold War

as a kid in the early eighties new wave pop music of was a fitting soundtrack to the frozen landscapes of a Canadian winter. the blend of new technologies with a post-punk attitude intensified by a reawakening of Cold War tensions altered the narrative of pop music. icy synths, effected guitars and stark drum machines reflected the societal anxiety of hurtling toward an unknown future. as a younger version of myself looked over the ice and snow, unsure of my own place in the world, this sound made sense. still does.

luv374 Virgin Ambient Flyer

Virgin Ambient Flyer

i have always had the sneaking suspicion that Richard Branson co-founded Virgin Records in 1972 to better soundtrack his future hot air balloon adventures. as you may recall, in 1987 he became one of the first people to cross the Atlantic Ocean in a hot air balloon, crash landing in the water off the coast of Northern Ireland. at the time their balloon, the “Virgin Atlantic Flyer’ was the largest in the world; so naturally it sunk.

recently i met a longtime employee for the Imperial War Museum in Duxford, England, where the ‘Virgin Atlantic Flyer’ now resides. he was part of the team that salvaged and cleaned out the craft after the emergency landing and he confirms that there was a good sound system and a box of reel-to-reel tapes stowed on board. of course they were all destroyed but he recalls one of the reels being clearly labeled “Avant Garde Virgin Cuts”. this mix is what i imagine was on that tape Sir Branson listened to while he floated among the clouds.
