To celebrate Jimmy Edgar's Birthday which was on August 10th, I had to create a mix of course. I've been wanting to do a Jimmy Edgar mix for a very, very long time now, but I always freak out when I want to do a mix for someone's music I absolutely adore. It's important that I take time to craft a mix in reverence to their music. Jimmy Edgar is no exception. He is one of my main musical men, alongside Prince, Luke Vibert, and Machinedrum. His music makes me feel, which is getting kind of hard to do lately in music. Where's the soul? Where's the funk? Look no further than Jimmy Edgar, one of the only contemporary artists still holding it down. So, we have got to celebrate his music and more importantly his existence.

Jimmy Edgar in my opinion is Prince's direct successor for DMSR (Dance Music Sex Romance) since Prince is a jehovah's witness now and refuses to perform his sexual lyrics anymore. Jimmy Edgar is definitely a student of the Minneapolis sound. I like how he strips it down to the essentials, keyboard funk and sexy whisphers, talking, etc. but also has cultivated his own sound at the same time.

So if you are a true Prince fan, it's automatic. You'll adore Jimmy Edgar's music, too!

In the meantime, please support Jimmy Edgar by purchasing his music so he can keep doing what he does like no one else can.

Luke Vibert ♥ Acid (No Turn Unstoned #248)

To celebrate the release of Luke Vibert's latest release, Ridmik, I have put together a special mix of Luke's acid and acid-influenced music. It took me a while to get into acid music, but Luke always knows how to combine genres in interesting ways. So, after years of listening to his acid output, I can finally appreciate acid music.

Please support Luke by purchasing his music so he can keep doing what he does better than anyone. His entire catalogue is available at http://bleep.com. This is huge because a lot of his music is now out of print on vinyl and/or CD.
I've been wanting to do a shawty mix for several years now and I was finally compelled to actually complete it after reading Matthew Daniels' Etymology of Shorty in Hip Hop: http://www.mdaniels.com/shorty/

The reason it took so long is that I didn't want to miss an amazing shawty song and there are so many that I froze every time I thought I was ready to broadcast the mix. I would always go back to searching for more shawty songs. However, the time is always now and I can always do a shawty part 2 mix... so without further delay we are FINALLY doing a shawty mix.

I hope you enjoy it. It's an eclectic mix like most of our mixes usually are. PLEASE let me know your favorite shawty song in the comments if I missed it;)

Dedicated to my beloved south which I miss dearly up north!

Back To CHICAGO Mix (No Turn Unstoned #245)

This is the 4th in special tribute mixes affiliated with DJ Rashad. DJ Rashad lived in Chicago, Chicago has a rich musical heritage (notably for house and juke), and I visited Chicago for the 4th of July for the first time in over 10 years. I hope you enjoy this mix created with love and respect for this amazing, musical city.
June 25th, 2014 is the 30th anniversary of Purple Rain. I'm a MASSIVE Prince Fan. So what do I do on the 30th anniversary of Purple Rain? Create a special mix of course. 1984 was an extraordinary year for Prince, not only did he release the album and film Purple Rain, he also released a crap-load of good music that he wrote, performed, and produced through other artists: The Time's Ice Cream Castles, Sheila E's The Glamorous Life, Apollonia 6's self-titled debut, and Sheena Easton's Sugar Walls. This mix not only celebrates the film, Purple Rain, but also the year of Prince and related music from 1984. It was a good year!
