This Sunday is Mother’s Day in many parts of the world. If you are in those parts, or you just love your mother, then this is the mix for you (and your mother!). Just download it, burn it, and give it to your mother. Don’t listen to it or even read the track names. That way it will be more fun for everyone!

Just Burn It! The Upbeat Beatdown mix

Download the Upbeat Beatdown mix.

I know it’s been a while since the last Just Burn It! mix but you may have noticed all the changes to the site instead. Well as site tweaking settles down I’ll be making more mixes for y’all. Lets start with this one!

As spring arrives there are often days that turn out to be less warm than we would have hoped. I often find these days to be the most depressing. At least in winter you know what to expect but during these transitional times it can be tough. Hope is often higher than the mercury. On these depressing days it helps to have a soundtrack to pick you back up, and what’s better than a solid hour of upbeat music! There are dance-offs, face-offs, walk-offs and now an upbeat-off! Wait, that doesn’t sound right. Anyway, here are 19 tracks that are guaranteed to get you amped! From hand-claps to fist-pumps, it’s 60 minutes of pure upbeat psyched motivation! Make it your soundtrack to spring cleaning! Your place has kinda been looking like a dump…

Track list after the dump. I mean jump.

For You? Only The Very Best!

I was thinking ’bout you and me and everything we’ve been through

The Very Best – Dinosaur on the Ark

This weekend’s MixTape is not TBE-produced but you will dig it nonetheless. If the name didn’t already give it away, it is not to shabby. Wondering how a dude with a name like Mwamawaya got mixed up (ha!) with a group who goes by the moniker “Radioclit?” Yeah, me too. Their official story tells it best.

Esau Mwamwaya was born in Mzuzu in Malawi, East Africa. He grew up in the capital, Lilongwe, and played drums in various bands, including Masaka Band.  In 1999 he moved to London, and ran a second-hand furniture store near Radioclit’s old studio.  After the Radioclit boys bought a bike from Esau they invited him to one of their house warming parties, made friends, and started making music together. Two years later the project has gotten it’s name, The Very Best.

Good thing Radioclit found him because I hear they are wicked hard to find. I mean,  of course I know where it is they are. Duh.

The track you have been no doubt feelin’ has guest vocals by Ben Brewer, the dude responsible for the newly minted MIA Jr. Yeah I know, what is it with all these shlubs boning the hottest talent of ’08 and then getting love on my blog.?
