Today in Chill


Last night turned out to be an especially lucrative night in gold-panning for talent. In a couple hours I managed to add an hour and half of music to my iTunes and spend some cash on some well-deserving artists. This is putting my DEFTJAMS playlist up past the 12 hour mark. At 24 four hours, I will release the whole thing as one 24 hour long mix for download on here.

D/A/D would make Jan Hammer jealous. Comprised of a single Northwestern University student, D/A/D’s “Super Motives” is pulled straight out of Miami Vice. Cheesy? A little. Dated? Certainly. And yet that hasn’t kept this EP from playing on repeat for the better part of the afternoon. Don’t miss out on D/A/D’s jock jam transformation of Yelle‘s “Ce Jeu” at the end of the EP.
