3M – World Champs


AKA the Silver Lining album. Hopefully this will help ease your post-election woes.
Anderson .Paak makes three appearances on this one, but not all from his award-contending album. I’d have more from KATRANADA too, but there’s too many to pick from. Do yourself a favor and just download the whole album. HONNE makes two remix appearances, and Tom Misch returns with yet another stellar composition from his latest EP. There’s also more from Frank Ocean and a Phonte (from The Foreign Exchange) appearance, along with a rare showing from a Gigamesh remix of Rihanna that strongly echoes Tears for Fears’ “Everybody Wants to Rule The World.”

  1. Am I Wrong? (feat. ScHoolboy Q) – Anderson .Paak
  2. Lost (HONNE Remix) – The Temper Trap
  3. ONE TOO MANY (feat. Phonte)
  4. Dang! (feat. Anderson .Paak) – Mac Miller
  5. Fall in Love (feat. Cicero) – GoldLink
  6. Sweet Dávila – Demouche
  7. Get Bigger / Do U Luv – NxWorries, Anderson .Paak & Knxwledge
  8. Another Luvr – Teedra Moses
  9. Just Once (HONNE Remix) – Shura
  10. Watch Me Dance – Tom Misch
  11. Sharpness – Jamie Woon
  12. Señora Borealis – Broncho
  13. Make a Wrong Thing Right (feat. Micah Powell) – The Aston Shuffle
  14. Love on the Brain (Gigamesh Remix) – Rihanna
  15. Rushes To – Frank Ocean

3M – Snowbird


First thing’s first: The Mixtape.

Tame mutherfuckin’ Impala. I’m not sure when it happened exactly, but there became a pre-Tame Impala era, and a post-Tame Impala era, and I can hardly remember how I lived in that dark and lonely PT (Pre-Tame) epoch. Pretty sure we just beat rocks against a dead zebra’s skull and called it music.

  1. Let It Happen – Tame Impala
  2. Holding On feat. Sam Dew – Julio Bashmore Music
  3. Let Go – Ark Patrol feat. Veronika Redd
  4. Prisoner – Jordan Bratton feat. Chance The Rapper
  5. Got It Bad – Leisure
  6. What I Like – Tenterhook
  7. Let’s Get Slow (feat. Benjamin Diamond) – Aeroplane
  8. Believe In Me – Jamie Lidell

Ok, so second thing, the lovely Ms. Osgood of Snowbird Art fame made this wonderful thing for me:


Yeah, that’s me as a Muppet. I love it. It’s pretty accurate. I always keep cassette tapes in my shirt pockets. If only I could figure out how to make it up to her…

3M – Jet Lag


This is the FIRST mixtape of 2015. It’s real title should be “3M – Jet Lag (The R&B Edition)” given that fully two-thirds of this mixtape is either R&B tracks, or generously flavored with 100% Real, American Rhythm & BluesTM.

As per the typical, the tracks consist of some old, rarely heard tracks, among the new hotness. Most notably is the addition of the Usher track (featuring Nicki Minaj) smack-dab in the middle of the mix. Given the frequently obscure nature of the artists often making an appearance on the MTS rosters, seeing those two rather high-profile names seems out of place. In this particular case, I’m making a deal –a trade– if you will. You’re getting a grade-A, funky jam produced by none other than Pharrell. So while the talent of Nicki Minaj is highly-debatable, the genius of Pharrell is not.

You probably noticed that Miguel is also making another MTS appearance on track 1. The track comes off his December ’14-released EP and is worth a listen in its own right. I am becoming more and more impressed with Miguel with every release. It is profoundly strong work that sets its sets itself apart from the crowd in ways both sonically, and lyrically, and I insist that he keep that shit coming.

Finally, there WILL be a Feb. 14th release of a mixtape for V-Day. It WILL be a double-album, live from Las Vegas (lies), but I am taking suggestions of your favorite love songs of all-time. Hit me with your suggestions on Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/mixtapestudios, oh and throw in a LIKE while you’re there.

  1. Hollywooddreams – Miguel
  2. Falling Short (JackLNDN Remix) – Lapsley
  3. Dazzle – Oh Wonder
  4. Sunny (Notize Head for Bed Edit) – Marvin Gaye
  5. Silk – Falcon Punch
  6. She Came to Give It to You (feat. Nicki Minaj) – Usher
  7. Addicted – JMSN
  8. Greek Tragedy – The Wombats
  9. Stay With Us – Seoul
  10. Babe I’m Yours – Whilk and Misky
  11. D.T.R.T. – Olivver the Kid

MTS Update (New mix coming soon!)

So here we are about one month since the last mixtape, and there’s been a ton of really great stuff being released out into the world. There’s also been a few things that have been around for a while that I’m just now becoming aware and familiar with, and I’m going to share some of that with you here. First off, a few new favorite things that have been taking up my time.

TSYN (TheSoundYouNeed)


TheSoundYouNeed, based out of the UK, and best represented by its YouTube channel (which I’ve linked to above), is one of THEE sexiest, most well curated playlist/curated collections of music I’ve come across since, well, yours truly. Seriously, joking aside, whoever is running TSYN is [Doing It Right | Killing It | Knocking it out of The Park | All of the Above]. The visual work is outstanding, and the music is just top-notch picks from here all the way down to the beginning. At the risk of losing return business, you owe it to yourself to subscribe and subscribe HARD. (http://thesoundyouneed.net/)


FKJ (French Kiwi Juice)

So turns out, “French Kiwi Juice” is, in fact, what FKJ stands for (you might remember, I wasn’t quite sure a mixtape or so ago.) He (They?) just released some new stuff that is mere days old. The 2nd EP from FKJ released in just baarreely over a year since the first EP is showing some real evolutionary growth.

The Foreign Exchange

Here’s one of those cases of something that’s been happening out in the world for, what’s now been about 10 years (!) that I’ve only recently discovered. I like to think of myself as one of the Lucky 10,000 for whom the curtain has been pulled back, exposing my new favorite Hip Hop/R&B/Soul acts since, I can’t even tell you when. The funny this is, I managed to come within a few inches of their greatness back in 2011 when I included a cover of George Michael’s “Everything She Wants” performed by Zo! and Phonte. Apparently Zo! has been involved for some time with FE, but I think my favorite part of their story is that Phonte and Nicolay first met on the okayplayer.com message boards, and just started sending vocal and production work back and forth to each other. I mean, if that isn’t a “Internet, fuck yeah!” story then I don’t know what is. The last few nights, I’ve been listening to their third album “Authenticity” on repeat.

Next week, I should hopefully have some new stuff to download for ya. Stick around.

3M – Copa Mundial

3M - Copa Mundial

I was holding off on publishing this until after the US v Germany game. I wanted to make sure we advanced on to the knockout round, otherwise, I would have changed the name of the mixtape. I’m not even certain that I have the translation right, but if you can move past it and on to the album art, then we’re probably ok. As you can guess, there’s some relevant content on this mixtape. Iran’s official song for the World Cup makes an appearance, as well as that really great track from the Beats commercial. If you haven’t heard/seen it, it’s here. The song kicks in around the 1:15 mark, but it’s worth watching it all the way through. There’s also a lot of housey material making it’s way on. Toss it into your DJ mixes, or workout playlists, or whathaveya. It’s worth it. TRUST ME :D

  1. Jungle – Jamie N Commons & X Ambassadors
  2. Sing (Trippy Turtle Remix) – Ed Sheeran
  3. 1nce Again (Bit Funk Remix) – A Tribe Called Quest
  4. Let Me Down Gently (Playless club mix) – La Roux
  5. Expectations – Brika
  6. Fade – Mexico City Blondes
  7. The Villain – Mesita
  8. Changing Me (feat. Sean Michael Murray) – Bobby Green
  9. Gole Iran – Ajam
  10. My Friend Has A Swimming Pool – MAUSI
  11. Little Bit of Feel Good (Jamie Lidell Cover) – SomethingALaMode (Ft. Adam Joseph)

BTW: Share this site with your friends, OR ELSE… I’m going to start putting the downloads behind a Facebook “like.” You know it was coming…
