I’ve started a whenever-I-want-to-post-it series called “someone else’s mixtape“. I’m always checking out mixes and I know a lot of skratchbastid.com visitors come here for mine. So, I’ve decided to pass on mixes that catch my ear. This, as you know, can happen at any time. And so I am going to post them whenever I want. Subscribe to this feed at the bottom, I’ll never over-post, I promise.
I spoke with my man (and this year’s DMC World Champion!) DJ Vajra earlier this week and I asked him about his “I Live For The Funk” live mix that he recorded earlier this year. He said that it was a set he crafted for a show he played with funk outfit The New Matersounds and it was a compilation of a few different funk/soul oriented mixes of his, both new and never released. It came out great – but I’m not sure many people heard it. I think that judging by the soundcloud plays, this is an under-appreciated mix. If you’re a fan of good music and good mixes (and some tasteful scratches), I would suggest you look no further than the ‘play’ button below.
Here’s a youtube clip of him performing part of this mix live:
If you’ve frequented this website, than you’ve probably seen Vajra and I cut it up before. Be expecting some more of that in the future. Here is some footage from our last session:
