Turntable Kitchen :: The August 2011 Mix

August 16th, 2011

It’s something I can’t explain, but some of TK’s mixes come together easily, while others are labors of love.  The August mix definitely falls into the latter category.  I struggled with everything from committing to an opening track, track order and song selection.  Once I had a little over half a mix, I felt like it was still missing something.  Ultimately, I ended up hitting up some of my colleagues’ sites to find tracks to fill in the gabs.  I found the Bare Wires and Mikal Cronin tracks while browsing the consistently excellent See The Leaves; “HURTLOVE” and “Shells of Silver” were posted on the always spot-on Listen Before You Buy; Gorilla vs. Bear featured the Wildlife remix; and the Benoit & Sergio track was courtesy of elegantly stylish ISO50.  Despite the difficulties of curating this one, I think it turned out pretty great – so I hope you enjoy it too.

    The track is a serious jam. I knew I was in love the first time I heard it. J.V.M. is a hero.
