My friend Khairi is a double agent, by day for Puma and after work, his life is all about RECESS [ie. games for all us music-industry New Yorkers to play like ping pong, bowling, bocci ball and badminton tournaments on Governor’s Island]. I took the opportunity to break from genre themes in favor of a diversion into a heart-opener midtempo mix of songs that I just want to listen to all the time. This makes me happy.

A favorite, fun BKNY designer (who dresses Nicki Minaj, Patra, Rye Rye & Nina Sky) asked me to make a mix for her line. I was stoked on the task of taking inventory of all of the types of clients she styles for and repping all of those cultural elements in one banging summertime mix. NSFW & not for the faint-of-heart!

I have brethren in Seattle in the form of Alex Ruder from KEXP.  He started a label called Hush Hush. Alex curates a mix series called Distant Lights, embodying a sound aesthetic I love, described as:

“A spotlight on the emotional and introspective sound known as “Night Bus,” a multi-genre aesthetic that elaborates on the world of headphones, late-night travels, intimate encounters, and contemplative rides on public transportation.

The Soultronica sound I’ve been putting together for years is a sister to that. When Alex asked me to do a volume for the mix series.  I thought, how deep can I take this steeze? 

Reflecting on the spirit of the mix series and living in NY, my goal was a very tall order: to create a bulletproof halo for riding the New York MTA Subway. Over a month of riding the train I tested out songs. I picked tracks that have the ability to envelop and cloak the listener via headphones, in particular. This is a meditative buffer from the chaos.

“Hot off the heels of a recent feature on Okayplayer, URB Alum, Erica Olsen, otherwise known as DJ Eko has shared her most recent outing– Soultronica Vol 3.  Just what was needed to close out the office night, this mix sent us out floating and into the ether.  Despite the ‘airy-ness’ of the mix, there is a lot going on here, as she has put together a multi-layered effort with her track selection that feels like the ebb and flow of inhaling the world and exhaling art.  While some would dismiss this mix effort as one of the many Valentine’s season mixes that have dropped as of late, there is a penetrating vision displayed here that pushes it over the top of that pile and making it more than just ‘make-out music’.”    -URB Magazine

Weird Reggae tunes. Been wanting to make a little mix of the stuff for a minute.  The word “weird” is commonly understood as a bad ting. So, I hopped on good ol’ One synonym is “magic”. So, this is a mix of MAGIC REGGAE TUNES. Ha ha ha. Which means, songs on here are kinda reggae or are remixed in a reggae style or embody some roots vibe. I aimed for unusual and surprise! If you are still getting to know me, I’ll give you a hint.. I love playing left field. That, playing  things listeners haven’t heard before.

ps. don’t get mad ‘that song’ is on there. it’s probably the best remix you’ve heard of it ever. so, shush.

2010 I decided to create a mix series highlighting the intersection of soul, electronic and  future bass. I had been brainstorming and collecting tracks in this vein and was waiting for the birth of more (and boy, did they get born). 

The boys and girls over at Okayplayer like it as much as I do and just released it for Mixtape Mondays today, right in time for Valentine’s Day!

Stepped in for DJ Still Life on EVR, December 16th. Worldwide Smash is “global bass music, raw beats, dubstep, glitch and other emerging forms of electronic music.” I got the air-room, all to myself and laid the sexy down. Boy, did I have a good time.

This is a mix is for my very beloved-bay-area-burningman camp, Laughing Monkey. I motivated to trek out to the playa all the way from New York this year. All of venturing to the Playa have hours and hours to fly, drive, swim and cartwheel out to Nevada. I made this for our journey. There are epic moments and quiet moments transmitted via soultronica + future bass music. I really hope you dig it. Put it on when you hit Gerlach! Much love,
