I’ve moved my studio space into my new domicile and I’m remembering just how much I enjoy having turntables. I’ve had a few dj mixes floating around in my head for a while, probably about time I kick ’em out so I can begin formulating some new ones. After all, if I’m going to start up a dj night again, I’d better get my ass practicing.
Another fine DJ Mix
Ran across this one by DJ Brackenfern by way of a mailing list I’m on. I’ve been given permission to repost it here (right click, save-as). I hope you enjoy it as much as I have, its a bit older, but its really well mixed and programmed.

Kick ass Seattle live ambient set
I recently ran across a kick-ass live ambient set created by a Seattle local who goes by the name Gel-Sol. I’ve obtained his permission to repost it here, and thought I’d share it with y’all.

a thought about the Mailing list archives
I got to thinking — we have a vibrant mailing list here at downtempo.chron, complete with archives that go back to July 2003. I can’t tell you how many great new artists I got turned on to by that very same list, why not share it with the world.
But before I do that, I thought it would be worth asking *you* the mailing list (and web) community if you thought that *we* should open those archives up for public perusal.
What do you think? send us some feedback by way of comments
New DJ mixset up
I’ve added Ken Wallace’s Groovetech Darkside mix as promised — find it here. Props to Ken for sharing it, and giving me his blessing to post it here. Enjoy!
DJ Mix by Ken Wallace
Downtempo.com’s very own Ken Wallace dropped a nice little DJ mix on me yesterday. Got a chance to check it out today, and I dug it. KayDub’s got mad DT mixing skillz yo! Its an older mix, circa 2001 I believe. Nice little intro, darker tracks, a little electronic, a little hip-hoppy, all dope tracks. I’ll be posting it to the site soon so y’all can check it out. Nice mix Ken!
The old background images from the previous incarnation of this site.
As per a request on the Downtempo mailing list, I’ve put up the old background pictures I was using up.
Are you down?
Are you still down?
Map your ‘down’ location!
I haven’t had a chance to add myself to the mix yet, but this is a sweet little linky: http://www.frappr.com/downtempo
Old Skool DJ mix online
Brandon at Properly Chilled was nice enough to post one of my old skool dj mixes which I recorded at the Seattle Aquarium circa 1999
