Hongry 2: Still Hongry

Hongry 2: Still Hongry. Live Hongry or Die Trying. Weird, raw, heavy and fuzzy from A-Z for long hairs, burnouts, and drifters from the depths of Universal Cave. It's a hill country holiday for cheap beer by the case and whiskey by the bottle. Moonshine and fireworks. Doing donuts in parking lots and making out in the tall grass. Everyone's got some hongry in 'em and it's our pleasure to help you let it out.

Download and stream Hongry 2 from Dream Chimney's Mix of the Week. If you missed the first edition of Hongry, you can find it here.

Summer 2015 Cave Jams Chart


Here's a new Juno Records chart with enough summer jams to break the bank. Music from throughout space and time (mostly from the 70s & 80s) presented in it's original form, in a chopped up form, or sampled and mutated into new things, music that was actually created from scratch in recent times (people can do that?!?!?), music for home & music for the club.

Michael The Lion Edits Out Now On Razor-N-Tape

The major labels couldn't back up the presses forever - the Michael The Lion Edits are now available on 12" wherever fine records are sold! This record has a little bit of everything. Any Time is an edit of a loft classic that I did almost five years ago (as DJ Apt One). The Don is an italo/eurodisco joint reminiscent of my RCMP days. Get More is my multi-instrumental hard disco-funk take on a Philly classic (I play 4 guitar lines on it). Lastly 909s And Herb is a little collabo with my man 50 grand Sammy Bananas that has turned into a secret heater in Soul Clap's recent sets. Very excited and very honored to be a part of this label - which boasts a roster of top class editors like Dimitri From Paris, Ron Basejam and DJ Vas. Hope you enjoy - listen below and grab a copy at Juno.

Tudo Bem / Luanda

Sao Paulo’s SELVAGEM drop a masterful double sider for Universal Cave 004. “Tudo Bem” is sunny, soulful AOR bliss. A tribute to a favorite Brazilian musician and an update for contemporary rotation. “Luanda” is hypnotic, psychedelic tropicalia. Truly digging deep, SELVAGEM give Universal Cave a taste of the Forward Deep & Free sounds of Balnearico from Brazil. Balnearico is the fusion of balearic and "balneário," the Portuguese word that is synonymous with beach.

Do It To The Music

DJ Bruce reworked Greg Wilson's Raw Silk edit, making it more mixable, bringing in the vocals sooner and other good stuff. Definitely an improvement in my opinion. Bruce opened up 500 downloads on this, so hurry your ass up and grab a file!
