Listening: MIXED BY Kastle via Thump

Jeffrey Donenfeld Listening To, Music Leave a Comment

I’ve been obsessed with this mix lately, as it’s been providing a perfect background soundtrack to preparations for my next adventure… Happy listening. MIXED BY Kastle by THUMP. I’m also using this post as an experiment for embedding geo coordinates with each post, and generating a summary map of all geocoded posts.

Listen: Little People – Youth & Progress DJ Mix

Jeffrey Donenfeld Listening To, Music Leave a Comment

A fitting first post as I move back to Boulder for the winter – I’m loving Little People’s somewhat old “Youth & Progress’ DJ Mix. It’s been re-posted as a lead up to his new album, Youth & Progress. From the DJ: “Here is an old DJ mix which i put together for the launch of ‘mickey mouse operation’ now available as a free download… I lovingly burned 100 CDs by hand and gave them to everyone that came on the night. It’s the follow-up to the sweetness & decency mix i posted a while back. Incidentally, Youth & Progress is the name of my new label under which my new album will be released.” As I’m planning out my winter in Colorado, namely a few key winter 14ers mountaineering ascents, lots of days on the ski slopes, and a few backcountry trips, I’ve found this a worthy listen… Youth & progress (little people dj mix)

Shooting for Joios at Saks Wine Tasting

Jeffrey Donenfeld Music, Photography Leave a Comment

Today I took a few pictures at Saks Fifth Ave in NYC for Joios, a new app. A few shots..  Joios is a food & drink community and process, built to empower exploration and discovery. We connect people: eaters, drinkers, producers, vendors, experts and amateurs. They’re drawn by the opportunity to find exciting flavors collaboratively, at fun and educational events. We help tasters better understand their preferences. Our system – truly blind tastings, a user-friendly app, a rigorous peer matching process – strips away bias. We match people (“TastePeers”) and make reliable recommendations.

While I’m working all day, I usually listen to electronica mixes. Lately my favourite website to find new mixes is TheFuture.fm – and today, I found a great new BBC Radio 1 Essential Mix by Feed Me. Essential Mix is one of my all time, long time favorite radio shows, and is hosted by the legendary Pete Tong. Here’s Feed Me’s Essential Mix, originally broadcast on BBC Radio 1 on 2012-09-8. Tracklisting on ElectronicaDanceMusic.com Feed Me BBC Radio 1 Essential Mix Download Other favourite radio shows include Worldwide with Gilles Peterson and The Breezeblock with Mary Anne Hobbs. These three programs were the basis of my own radio show, The Acid Lounge.
