You survived Monday!!! Let the vibe from our Tuesday night carry you through the rest of the week! Get there early for classic and underground jawns rocked on vinyl. Stay late and get buck with 241's after midnight and beautiful Minnehappiness party people! As always, 21+ and NO COVER!

Props due to the fine lads at Switchblade Comb for putting me onto this. I agree whole-heartedly with Mojo Marshall that this reminds me of a young Common [Sense]. Perfectly matched music video produced by Science Projects.

I can't believe it's taken me this long to post something about Nosaj Thing. He opened for the XX at the Varsity Theater back in April with a unique blend of head-nodding, downtempo, stuttering breakbeats and some danceable glitch-y electronica. His range and style are very reminiscent of Minnehappiness-born Mux Mool, now in Brooklyn repping Ghostly.
This video captures the track and style perfectly from the brooding subject matter, the gray palette, the quick edits, the ghostly layers and a hint of the future. Shot and edited by Roland Von Tessin.

Here's some Sunday, dog-days-o-summer, chillout music for you. Let the ethereal vocals and chunky, loping beats set you adrift. More lazy EP's can be found on their bandcamp site.

As much as I love the opportunities that DJ'ing with digital software like Serato provides, NOTHING is as rewarding as DJ'ing with vinyl. Whether it's at home or at a gig, I play vinyl as much as I can. Sadly, most people don't hear me play from my vinyl collection. Nowadays, party-goers expect a wide variety of the latest music and I'm forced to play music via my computer at peak hour. Of course I can't share the sound quality of vinyl via the internet, but I can share a live mix I recorded with all vinyl. If you like what you hear, get to the Nomad early on Tuesdays for Out of the Box and catch me playing sweet sweet wax.
