I think you’re going to like the July mix. It’s upbeat, it’s fun, and it’s just oozing with joie de vivre. In fact, I hope you’ll forgive us if we’ve been acting a little overly giddy recently, but life has been good to us.
First, after months of planning, we finally announced the launch of Turntable Kitchen’s Pairings Box which will allow us to bring you extremely-limited vinyl 7″ singles (by some of the very bands you’ve been hearing on these monthly mixtapes), exclusive recipes, hand-curated digital mixtapes, and premium dry-food ingredients straight to your mailbox every month. Next, being the ridiculously capable and good-looking world travelers that we are, we’ve also been planning a trip to Colombia where we’ll be researching Colombian food and music to share with you after we get back. Oh, and did I mention that we’ve been featured in Urban Daddy, Real Simple and Wired? (Thanks guys!) Something tells me we may even appear in an article by a certain highly-respected newspaper this week (it’s true: we are in the NY Times today!). And rumor has it that TK may even make its big television debut very soon. And to top it all off, it has been a great month for new music with heaps of great new releases. So, if new music is what you are after, I hope you are ready for a bellyache because this isn’t a single serving, this is an all-you-can-eat buffet with more sonic awesomeness than you can cram into one of those archaic compact disc thingys.
