FatGyver presents PhatCast Vol. 2 (mix)

Yo!
Got busy on the 1s and 2s and recorded a new mix: PhatCast Vol. 2.
Was supposed to get busier with this series a long time ago…so here we go again. Quality-a$$ instrumental hip hop and you know it.

Some of those beats were h3ll to mix…there was some really short as well as somehow unquantized stuff, tempo changes etc. 
Thanks to @Serato for looping things on the fly! 
I still haven’t used sync once in my life, but some of this stuff makes me think I *need* to use it. But stuff like this is really good practice, and TBH I’ve never been one to mix the easy stuff anyways.

Breaks N Beats Podcast #23

After a half-year break (pun sort of intended), Breaks & Beats Podcast is here with episode 23.

DJ BOOKINGS: fanusamurai@gmail.com

Haven’t been making these as often as I used to, as an almost complete death of DJ booking demand has been discouraging (hey I still wanna DJ!), and I literally haven’t touched the decks for around a year (aside from sampling).
So, time to warm up – and this is a good way to contribute to my beloved culture anyways.
As always, I don’t plan these much, and I certainly don’t practice for mixtapes – it’s a spontaneous one-time performance like real DJ set, and that’s it! 
Autumn’s here, which means this music works better than ever, and I sure as heck I’m fond of these types of vibes.
I did f**k up a bit but that’s what you get when you don’t (have a need to…) practice for a year. But I guess it was an ok effort, considering. Afer recording this one, I actually felt I’d be warmed up for a better/tighter performance, but naaah, can’t do it twice.

There’s supposed to be two vinyl EPs full of this type vibes from myself still in 2019.
