Robots In Heat
San Francisco's Robots In Heat just blessed the world with a new mix of deep & funky prog, folk and cosmic jams. As I write this I'm on my third listen and I can only identify "that one thing DJ Shadow sampled that one time". Feel free to leave comments if you can come any closer with track IDs - I'd love to know what half of this stuff is. The sequencing of this mix is top notch too. RIH clearly worked hard to string these grooves together into a cohesive package, complete with smooth, seamless transitions. This ranks with Henrik Schwarz, Âme & Dixon's The Grandfather Paradox as one of the best mixes I've heard this year. Anyone who had RVNG's Purple Brain mix in heavy rotation needs to give this a listen.
Obscured By Crowds comes our way courtesy of Noncollective, who are curating a collection of quality mixes. Be sure to head over to their site for more.
And for those of you not familiar with Robots In Heat's site, he's been ripping and posting mysterious jams for the past couple years. Definitely check it out for a daily dose of WTF?
