2 Old Mixes from me – miked

for sunny days off

this mix was in prep for playing at a small event we put on in Nagano a few years ago to see how the tracks went together. luckily it turned out ok enough to keep. old reggae and Jamaican funk. goes from toasted “DJ” style tracks through funk, rocksteady reggae; with a few James Brown tracks thrown in in honor of since he had just passed at the time. i haven’t gotten around to putting the playlist together yet, maybe i will someday, or if asked. this is all vinyl except for the JB tracks. please download/stream and enjoy.

Jamaican Funk & Reggae (mix by miked)

for stoney days off

this set was recorded while i was living in Oakland. at that time i had recently decided to start buying some reggae, mainly re-pressed 7″s. this was my first ever reggae mix;playing nearly every7″ I had at the time. this set is all 7″s and is mainly heady roots-reggae and some dub. as with the Funk mix above, i can’t mix reggae and don’t have any effects so this is basically just playing one song one after the other with a concentrated effort to make that transition as painless as possible. this set is dedicated to sitting in Golden Gate Park eating avocado/cheese subs from Yellow Submarine with R. Rosen…homesick
