Don’t Mind Me

oh, hi there. don’t mind me. i am just putting some beautiful music up on the interwebs. much like i have been doin’ for about… oh well would you look at that. seems that this here mixtape marks the 10th year that dj luv’s records have been going around. that’s a mighty long time. but i’m here to tell ya that i don’t mind. no sir, not one bit. why i would be making these darn mixtapes anyway so i figure why not share ‘em. so don’t you worry, you can keep expectin’ ’em, cos as far near as i can tell we have only scratched the surface of what the Record Canyon has tucked away. thanks to those who have listened and shared. spread the luv, that’s what i always say.

Showing You The Cracks

techno is a pure dance music designed to take the cacophony of everyday chaos and organize it in just the right manner as to make a dancefloor erupt with timeless uncontrollable grooves. as serious rhythms free flow from the speakers we are witness to the breaking apart of all that we know. the cracks can no longer be hidden.

luv385 Black Rage Amplified Over Dope Beats

Black Rage Amplified Over Dope Beats

“We’ve been warning people about this, man, for like 30 years… injustice… you know pressure busts pipes, and it’s out of control. I don’t think Black people want anything more than justice… We’re angry at unarmed Black people being murdered in the streets.” – Ice-T in discussion with L.L. Cool J 6/1/2020

the Black Lives Matter protests are warranted, justified and needed. after all the footage, stories, documentation, lawsuits and societal consequences we have to admit that police brutality is a reality for a portion of our society and that is unacceptable. as a people we have to create a better way to care for everyone we share the planet with, no matter our differences.

hip hop produced artists who interpreted the Black experience in such a visceral way that it shook me as a youth. their revolutionary sounds showed me an alternate view of the world, one that differed from biased news reports and systematically racist entertainment industry offerings. these powerful voices made their way to the ears of a generation without any help from mainstream media outlets and a powerfully racist backlash that demonized their sounds and attempted to silence their truths. it seems, to quote Ice-T again, that “Black rage amplified over dope beats” was too powerful to contain; especially when that rage is justified and the beats are bumpin’.

now after centuries of injustices the pipes have burst and we can no longer be willfully ignorant of the demons in our past. we have to face the uncomfortable truths together, and collectively do the right thing for the future.

Society Is Breaking Down

amidst the heaviness of the global pandemic we have been living through i decided this mixtape was gonna be full of fun and ravey breaks both new and old to help shake the dust off everybody. of course i recorded this 2 days before the murder of George Floyd at the hands of the Minneapolis police. we are now witness to societal collapse on a scale not seen in our lifetime and this new backdrop makes me see this mix in a different light. now it’s a soundtrack to the breaking down of the systems of oppression to make way for the building of a more just future for everyone. Black Lives Matter.

when time seems to stand still, the ambient revolution will be there.
when days turn into weeks that turn into months, the ambient revolution will be there.
when the world outside seems unreachable, the ambient revolution will be there.
so take this time to stop the clock and rest assured knowing the ambient revolution will always be there for you.

Music For Empty Discotheques

ever since the clubs closed down it has been eerily quiet on dancefloors around the globe. there have been rumors from all sectors reporting folks hearing strange sounds and groove inducing rumblings emanating from many clubs that have been in lockdown for weeks. there is speculation that sound systems have spontaneously been turning on. trying to mimic through scraps of misremembered sounds and rhythmic patterns the music they used to play, in an attempt to lure us back to the dancefloor. it seems the relationship between dancers and sound systems is a symbiotic one. the machines miss their human counterparts, instinctively knowing we are both stronger when we are together.
