Downtempo, Music, Other Music, Podcast, Slow Jam Sundays - December 21, 2013 Slow Jam Sundays: Mr.B – A Timeless Christmas Mix

We went grocery shopping last night and the place was a nut house. The parking lot was completely full and there were frantic people everywhere. It was a flurry of chaos! That’s when I was suddenly reminded it’s officially the Christmas Season! There are a lot of Scrooges out there, but...

  UPDATE: Tipper has been released from the ICU, and is expected to make a full recovery! Dave Tipper has been a long time favorite of ours since 2005. Multiple times we’ve seen him live and each of those times has been an experience for the record books that we still talk about to this...

Downtempo, Slow Jam Sundays - December 16, 2012 Slow Jam Sundays: Janover and Djunya – Quanta

December 21 marks the end of the Mayan Long Count Calendar and is just a little over four days away. As some of our fellow inhabitants prepare for impending doom, I am going to take this chance to relax, reflect and embrace the change to come.  There is no better way for me to do […]...

Downtempo, Dubstep, Slow Jam Sundays - November 25, 2012 Slow Jam Sunday – The Polish Ambassador: Superpowers

Slow Jam Sundays are all about the long game, and The Polish Ambassador fits right in. His sets will tease and caressed you, rather than smack you in the face with Megatron’s leg. The latest release Superpowers is a sexy bass fueled orchestra of seductive beats. These six tracks will get you...

Downtempo, Slow Jam Sundays - November 18, 2012 Slow Jam Sundays – Vuurwerk – Vuurmix (Headphone Commute Podcast)

I’ve been knee-deep in the depths of the internet today looking for the perfect slow jam for this week’s edition of Slow Jam Sundays. While Heather and our house guest Kym are elbows deep in making art, I’ve been checking out the amazing catalogue of mixes from Headphone Commute....

Downtempo, Slow Jam Sundays - November 11, 2012 Slow Jam Sundays: Cloud Atlas – Cloud 3

I think it is fitting that today of all days we are featuring a set inspired by the themes of a book that talks about our inability to often escape our most base natures. That often we are just playing out the same conflicts of the past. We need to continue reflecting and remembering so […]...

When the sun is starting to come up, and the festival is coming to end. You have two options: Go back to your tent and get some sleep; or gather all your friends and rave blankets and check out some chill music to wind down from the most amazing weekend of your life. In most […]...

Downtempo, Slow Jam Sundays - October 28, 2012 Slow Jam Sundays – Alchemixed Triphop Tribute

Alchemixed is a downtempo artist who’s sets I’ve been enjoying for quite some time. His ability to layer over intricate glitchy sounds on his mixes keep the brain engaged in a way that is missed in most modern dubstep ragers. When creating his mixes his intention is to create music...

Downtempo, Slow Jam Sundays - October 14, 2012 Slow Jam Sundays – Lowlight Mixes: The God Particle

Living in the Pacific Northwest I have come to recognize that we only have two seasons: Summer and Rain. So, today I am spending this rainy Sunday laying on the couch alternating between watching people run down the street trying to avoid getting soaked and reading about parallel universe theory...

Downtempo, Glitch, Slow Jam Sundays - October 7, 2012 Slow Jam Sundays: Gladkill – Our Differences

Happy Canadian Thanksgiving Everyone!! Okay, so this Sunday slow jam is featuring just a track rather than a whole mix. It’s a holiday and I’m in the small town of Peachland doing the family thing in a cottage on a lake. The internet is pretty spotty and thus finding and  streaming an...
