Merry Christmas and happy holidays to everyone
as we’re approaching this new year, I felt it was time to let go of some things that have been gathering dust. Some old things, and some new things, I tried to pick out tracks that I know yall haven’t heard yet so there should be surprises around every turn.
can’t believe i’ve been making tracks for over 10 years now..That said, there’s so much to learn still.
I hope you all enjoy this mix. Thanks to the Gaslamp Killer for doing an incredible job on this.
Can’t wait for you all to hear my album ‘Cosmogramma’ coming out April 20th 2010 on Warp Records.

Got this one straight from 2dopeboyz, so thanks to Shake for posting and Tim G for ripping it. The line-up it sick so we had to post this Reflection Eternal “untitled” track featuring Jay Electronica, Mos Def and J. Cole.

BIGup Spon letting me know that Al jaZz and him just dropped Brazillionaires. The last project Spon put out, Buy Surprise, flexed his beat making skills, and he’s back to flex his lyrical ones. Al jaZz and Spon linked up through a remixed track that Al jaZz did. Shortly after that, they started sending beats back and forth. Most of the samples for Brazillionaires are from Brazilian tracks- hence the name. Needs vs. Wants, & Listen and Learn are a couple of my favorite tracks, but you can ride out on the whole thing. Download Impact Brazillionaires here. BIG thanks to Spon for the heads up.

It seems like there’s been ALOT of interesting things going on in Dame Dash’s world ever since the opening of his new DD172 recording / art studio. Aside from the recently released Blakroc project (that is getting favorable response from the masses right now), there seems to be a ton of extra curricular work getting done as well. And Creative Control TV has been documenting most of it.
For example, here’s a Ski Beatz / Mos Def collabo called “Taxi.” Who knows where this is gonna end up. I’m just elated to Ski tappin’ the pads again (well, he never really stopped, but you know how that goes). This is really dope.
