This mix is the first in the Digital Folklore series exploring the collision of traditional and electronic music from around the world. It focuses largely on sounds from South America.
Super chilled out ambient track joined by a plinky hip hop beat after about a minute and a half.
An off-kilter, sample-heavy track full of birds, bass, percussion, haunting abstract vocals, and flutes that takes a departure toward the end for an totally different mood.
Bouncy track full of spacey synth arpeggios, jazz percussion samples, and some highly modified samples of me playing banjo.
This is a half hour of chilled out beats with heavy doses of South American artists who are influenced by traditional music.
This song is uh… bouncy and uses samples from Thailand with a mandolin and reed instruments.
This track uses a bunch of South Asian and hiphop drums and flutes with a robot voice coming along for the ride. “Wayah Wayah” doesn’t actually mean anything, except maybe in robot language.
This is a three hour mix I put together for the World Music Fest after party. It starts with some electro cumbia but goes all over the place with a wide variety of modern, electronic influenced international music.
This is the playlist I made for Little Planet Supper Club #8 – BBQ Around the World at Braxton Brewing in Covington, Kentucky on June 9th, 2016. The menu included great food from Korea, Cuba, Morocco, and the American south. The playlist includes lively BBQ music all those places and more.
These are some of my favorite recent, African-inspired, retro-futuristic disco songs.
Kuduro is a type of high energy, electronic dance music that originated in Angola in the 1980s and has recently been popularized internationally by artisits like M.I.A and Buraka Som Sistema. This is continuous d.j. mix I made of about 20 tracks. Enjoy!
