Now this is how you groovesday. Well solo at least – major props to Dag-Nab-It on the week prior (coming soon) that we really had a blast with.
This set starts out house, goes hip hop, then weird, and I think hovers around that til the end. I mean did somebody say Sun Ra or what?

DJ Dag-Nab-It and I take it back to the radio style as we get him all trained up in the ways of the Bell Studio.
We missed recording the intro but bring it in early in the first track. A bit of a nod to the past, and a slight trip into the more hip-hop grooves that inspire and move us.
This weeks show includes hits from, but not limited to:
Outkast
Electronic

Title: BU003 – Blood on the tracks (full mix)
Artist: Noggin
Album: Beretta Underground 003 – Blood on the tracks
Date: 2005

This one was a birthday present to my main man Mr. Koral North. Mixed using the same setup (Vestax PMC 05 Pro – II fed by single turntable vinyl controlled DjDecks).
This one is all hip-hop and stuff that fits at that tempo (Four Tet is not the most gangster thing in the world). It’s dark and banging, taking the thematic elements from BU002 logically further. I really enjoyed making this and I got to holler at my boy Cody NuNu for keeping this spirit alive.
And a younger, scratch-initiating Noggin on the cuts (thanks Dirtstyle Shampoo breaks).
Includes hits from, but not limited to:
Method Man
Prince Paul
Murs + Slug
Dalek
Geto Boyz
Bone Thugs
etc, etc…

It’s not too early in the week to party, right?
This one grew out of proposition to ‘dj’, indirectly, again, a Halloween party happening in Waco. I prepared the mix beforehand, then Jared and I headed to Waco to meet my sister at Georges, head to a party near campus, get kicked off the doorsteps of the girls dorm, then finally head down to Houston I believe for an a capella band concert?! Hell of a time.
This one is very college-coed friendly with the hits and some 80s and some Hip Hop and some Noggin remixes / edits to spice it up.
This track includes hits from, but not limited to:
Genesis
Eminem
New Order
Miss Kittin and the Hacker
INXS

This one gets mixed up in my mind with another one I have with a similar title and vein. I think what happened was I was working on one in Praha one night, really digging it, then, thanks Buzz, I saved it in such a way that made the file unreadable. This happened often depending on your buzz configuration. Anyway, so I think I quickly tried to recreate what I had lost, but instead did something pretty different.
Here’s your sunday track. This is that lounge-lizard boom bap Buzz style.

From conception to completion to concrete realisation on 02 February 2002. One of my Sugs down in the Beretta Basement commissioned me to make this as we were heading to a party of epic proportions later that evening in Austin. We needed jams, and I was obliged to dj in advance what turned out to be 300 or so people diving for seventy-two 40’s at midnight while the theme from 2001 blared (my props to the other djs for that).
It’s hip hop. It’s party ish. It’s got the Bia Bia remix that stands to this day as my favorite foray into drum n bass.

Request filling time again! Keep them coming!
I recall making this mix because I had just finished a ‘party’ hip-hop mix and wanted this one to be the companion ‘chill’ hip hop mix. I was still rocking the soundforge / cd architect for piecing these things together. This one involves some pretty smooth mixes, thanks for the props, fellas.

Pharcyde
Cypress Hill

Title: BU002 (track 1)
Artist: Noggin / Mobb Deep
Album: Beretta Underground 002
Date: 2002

Made during my mixtape-madness days…this one served as the introduction to my second public mix, Beretta Underground 002. It’s basically a beat constructed in the classic 90s hip hop style (Moody Blues on the sample yall), with a heavily edited Mobb Deep a capella dropped back on top. Oh yea and a glitched out Bruce Willis a capella from 12 Monkeys….maybe one of the last appearances of a movie sample in my work.
This is still one of my proudest mixtapes, real deep real good hip hop.

Had a good time this am. Got there early! I’m still loving this Larry Joe Taylor guy so you get to enjoy him some more. I’m doing the country show again tomorrow, so if you are into that, it’ll be up here tomorrow.
ps. NERD ALERT: I always thought these files sounded…’phasey’ (very technical term). Anyway, turns out that one of the channels (left or right) is wired up backwards, and that’s making the recordings sound ‘thin’, ‘washed out’, ‘phasey’…I was able to fix it for the second hour, and I will try to fix these from now on, until I can get the station engineers to re-wire the record output.
This weeks show includes hits from, but not limited to:
