3M – No Curfew

That’s my NYC Girl, Meg, lookin’ like East-Coast TNT Supafly. So real quick, I have to tell the story about my “Peg Leg.” About 2 weeks ago, I went on an EPIC hike. I wasn’t prepared for it, but dammit, I was innit-2-winnit. I ended up hurting my foot afterward (stress-related injury), and ever since, […]

3M – Metaphysical Gravity (Volume 1 & 2)

“Love is…” …the name of this week’s mixtape, said R. Buckminster Fuller. Happy late V-Day, lovers. As my special gift to you, I’m doubling up the typical offer. Each tape is stylistically unique. Volume one is housey and a little more danceable, while volume two works on your slow jamz, end-of-the-day, get-cozy-with-the-significant-‘notha vibe. Shock – […]

3M – Groundhog Day

The winters are starting later every year. Today it felt like one of the coldest days in recent memory. My hope is that this works out come Coachella time. If the summer weather is pushed back enough that April 20th weekend is a beautiful spring day, I’ll be one happy car-camper. The Head I Hold […]


Why the big delay? About two weeks ago, I ended up with pretty severe neck pain that caused me to kind of hate all of life. I wasn’t getting any sleep, and trying to keep focus on anything was a challenge. Pretty much nothing was getting done. No new music was listened to and no […]

3M – Winter Eyes

Aand we’re back. Welcome to 2012, everyone. Let’s just get right into this, shall we? First of all, this week’s photo comes from Marta Bevacqua Photography. She’s does amazing work, so ‘like’ her on FB and show some support. I wish the weather was a little more like this. When I left LA a few […]

3M – TOP 30 of 2011 – Part 3: #1 – 10

I give you the last mixtape of the year: My Top 30 from 2011, part 3: #1 through #10. Next weekend is Christmas, and the weekend after that is the New Years Eve weekend. I hope that while you’re either spending time with friends and family, or traveling to see them, you’ve got some great […]

3M – TOP 30 of 2011 – Part 2: #20 – 11

For a track to appear on the 2011 Top 30, it had to be released in this year. This includes covers and remixes. Sometimes the cover or remix of a track is significantly enjoyable enough that it merits mention. Of course, I still hold the original in the highest regard. However, on the rarest of […]

3M – TOP 30 of 2011 – Part 1: #30 – 21

We’re nearing year’s end, and – like all other publications, television networks, radio shows and of course, blogs – we here at MixTape Studios are taking stock in 2011 and posting our picks for the best the last 300-some odd days has to offer. So. Here now, and for the rest of the year, I […]
