mix for Detroit – “tres tacos con lengua por favor” and ISM’s Movement after party plans

While I was eating lunch just now (hence the name) I threw together a quick mix of tunes I want to be able to listen to in Detroit this weekend. This should be the rightlength to burn to a CD for those of you who might want to bump it in your ride.

Are any of our readers going to Detroit this weekend? The festival proper has unfortunately ceased to be very relevant to this blog or the interests of most of us in the ISM crew but the city itself, record shopping, and after parties still hold a strong appeal. Tom and I (and plenty of other Pittsburgh folk) will be there. These are the after parties we plan on hitting up:

Friday night: Prelude with Detroit Beatdown and Chicago crews
Saturday night: Deep Detroit and Soul Skate
Sunday night: the Balance Alliance and Aesthetic Audio party

It should be an awesome weekend!

    enjoyed that. nice one, frank. Never had an ID on that K Alexi jam before.

  3. frank says:

    I think on the original release it might have been called “My Medusa”. He changed it for the repress or it’s a slightly different version. Either way, a killer track indeed and glad I could solve a mystery for you!

  7. Jason Rule says:

    Excellent mix, and a quality selection as always. Never made the Phlash = Phil Asher connection; that Bionic track is a good one to zone to.

Ten Years Lost
