January 2012 Mix

DOWNLOAD THE ENTIRE JANUARY 2012 MIX HERE

Ahh, January 2012.  I’m sure we’ll always look back at January as the month we all started working for DONDA, and there was a Republican debate on our TV every night.  It was also 70 degrees all month, which would have been nice if I hadn’t spent the entire month terrified of what this weather means for July and August (#swampass).

Luckily, there’s always music to keep me somewhat sane. Here’s what I was listening to:

  • Quelle Chris – Shotgun & Sleek Rifle:  Detroit’s MF Doom.
  • Common – The Dreamer/The Believer:  When I saw the album title, I assumed it was going to be the next step along Common’s descent into further cheesiness.  I was wrong. He’s back.

On to the mix:

1) The Strange Boys – Me and You
Not enough bands out there can make the piano rock.

2) Terry Malts – Tumble Down
San Francisco’s garage rock scene continues to dominate the world.

3) G-Side – Trip
Huntsville’s hip-hop scene continues to dominate the world. G-Side can do absolutely no wrong right now.

4) iNDEED – SippN (ft. LE$)
The most inventive rap song I’ve heard in a while. Will 2012 be the year of DJ Burn One pt. 2?

5) Johny Draper – Street Dream
Don’t know anything about this dude, but cool little beat.

6) Benny Sings – One II (Bonus Track)
The Zach Galifianakis of dudes who sound like Chromeo.

7) Amy Winehouse – Between The Cheats
Goddammit, we should have been getting songs like this for the next 30 fucking years.

8) Howard Tate – Shoot ‘Em All Down
Another talent we recently lost. RIP.

9) Willie Colon – Calle Luna Calle Sol
You know I’ve been on my Willie Colon and Hector Lavoe these past few months. Still on it.

10) Orchestre Du Bawobab – Kelen Ati Len
If I had a time machine, I’d go back to early 70s West Africa, and just hang out at clubs (and pray that 70s West Africans wouldn’t harm a fat white guy from the future).

11) Lee Fields – You’re The Kind Of Girl
New Lee Fields is a good sign that 2012 won’t suck.

12) G-Mane – Anutha Run
Holy shit, I need a whole album of G-Mane on his Nate Dogg shit. Fucking love this!

13) Meyhem Lauren – Pardon, You’ve Been on My Mind (ft. Jay Steele & Action Bronson)
Cheap nostalgia play, but fuck it, it works.

14) Quelle Chris – Shotgun feat. Danny Brown & Roc Marciano
Featuring Danny Brown & Roc Marciano = featuring on one of Nordy’s monthly mixes.

15) Mr. Muthafuckin eXquire – Killah Tofu ft. Danny Brown
Your soundtrack to throwing chairs through plate glass windows.

16) Waka Flocka Flame – Bickin Back Bein Bool (Feat. Slim Dunkin & Wooh Da Kid)
Listen to this song once, and you’ll find yourself randomly walking down the street singing the hook for the rest of your life. RIP, Dunk.

17) Common – Ghetto Dreams (feat. Nas)
I’m glad Common finally realized he never should have strayed from No ID.

18) The Kid Daytona – LOW
I didn’t like the Interlude II as much as the first installment, but Daytona is still a rapper worth checking out for.

19) Fat Pimp – Work (Feat. Paul C)

20) The Wurxs – No Ordinary (ft. Peedi Crakk)
If they’re working with Black Thought, you know they can rap.

21) Douster – Pop That Bubble
Music is crazy. This is one of the few songs on my jogging playlist that not only makes me run faster, but it puts a smile on my face.

22) Heartbreak & JWLS – Pimping
Is Diplo really fucking with a dude from Charlotte?
