3M – Everywhere

  Let’s get right to it, shall we? Sixto Rodriguez – Hate Street Dialogue (Round Table Knights Searching For Sugar Man Edit) | This track is pretty old – probably older than most of you out there by at least 10 years. Originally recorded in 1970, this version got a bit of reworking for the “Searching […]

3M – Vegas Baby

This couldn’t have come any sooner than it did. Sometimes, these things take just the right about of timing, inspiration, luck and love to come together, and not a second before. But here we are, and here it is. It has definitely been too long. Hopefully you haven’t forgotten me yet. There’s a lot of […]

3M – Future Perfect

“By tomorrow morning, we will have had the most funky 80’s dance party ever.” I’ve been getting into a bad habit of finding some really great tracks, compiling the mixtape, and then taking almost a week to post it. I think this week I’ve had a good excuse, but still just an excuse, and I […]

3M – Monsoons

I have the rare pleasure of living in a rainy desert. For a few months out of the summer, from about July on until September, we get some of the most amazing wet weather I’ve ever seen almost anywhere. What makes it unique is that in no other environment does this kind of meteorological contrast […]

3M – MST247365

I’m going to have to keep this post short and sweet. First of all, yes, I’m still on the job. I will still keep bringing updates and mixtapes so long as the blood flows through my veins. Second, it has been –at least in my opinion– a very slow release cycle for the last few […]

3M – Golden Age

This mixtape is the first in a series spread out over the course of the next year on artists, styles and tracks that shaped my musical palate (and palette).  Without going too far into the past (jazz, classical, classic r&b, soul, rock, etc.), I thought I’d start from the period of music not directly influenced […]

3M – Swelter

It’s getting hot out there. I turned 33 recently. That’s only 7 short years to 40. Too soon… Enjoy your summer, kids. I am a creature of habit, and like everyone else, I have my favorites. I intend to play them on this next mixtape. I’ve got some Plastic Plates, RAC, St. Lucia and the […]

3M – Reconnoiter

…And we’re back. This post has been a long time coming. I had this collection of tracks compiled by early last week, but here’s the thing about work, life and traveling… When you’re gone, everything doesn’t wait around for you to get back, so when you’ve taken two weeks to prepare, and you’re out for […]

3M – Recharger

I have a thing for gingers. My friends know this. It’s an odd condition, I admit. I mean how could one love something that apparently has no soul? Hmmm… I think someone has been telling lies. Today is New Release Tuesday. If you’ve ever wondered about why this is, I’ve heard it’s largely due to […]

3M – Amalfi Coast

Photo work by Show her some luv, eh? Due to further injuries sustained in the line of battle, I was unable to post this week’s mixtape on the promised day –Monday, and for that I am truly sorry… BUT IT’S HERE NOW. The Amalfi Coast is a wonderful place in Italy where one would go […]
