First Yurt Beats DJ mix in a while with a mix of modern African and Latin American influenced House music. Enjoy!
I had the amazing opportunity to DJ at the first Miami University Global Initiatives Global Dance Party. The event was the kick-off for their International Education Week. There was a great turnout of Miami students from around the world and included a fun dance routine by the Hillel student organization.(more…)
This song is the soundtrack an elephant walking through the forest, getting a little agitated and then calming back down. It uses some spacey synths, tabla samples, and a big elephant bass line.
Another mini-mix of off-kilter, percussion heavy, house tracks
An “energy level 5”, sort of chill, mix floating around 118 BPM, lots of global sounds and beats. Enjoy!
Skitters is a song with jittery drums, an acid bassline, and ethereal vocal samples.
Spooky Halloween mixtape! Boooo! Cuuuuumbia!
Enjoy the Yurt Beats rotating playlist of global beats and favorites.
This is a playlist of West African music discussed in Frank Tenaille’s book Music Is the Weapon of the Future: Fifty Years of African Popular Music.
