TBE Exclusive! DJ be and the Slow Burn Summer mix

Big moves are being made over at TBE HQ and one of them is this, The Slow Burn Summer mix, our first DJ mix by local favorite “DJ be” who was kind enough to blend up a fresh-to-death 60 minutes of straight fire. Put in on your iPod, cell phone, CDR, or whatever and then slip on your shimmy-shoes.

The mix is a single file because this thing is too fresh to be skipping tracks. I have, however, embedded a timecoded track-list in the lyrics section of the ID3 tag so you can at least know where you are at (or jump to your favorite part, if necessary). Let me know what you think of this method.

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!

The Pragmatic challenge you to a Deathmatch

the-pragmatic

i’m in no position to talk about what is and isn’t mine

The Pragmatic – Deathmatch

The Pragmatic first hit the scene last October with “Circles,” a song that was instantly put on my playlist for that month. This past week saw the release of a full EP (Released for FREE). Five songs that range from the contemplative “Circles” to the frenetic “Deathmatch,” but all thickly coated in crunchy analog synths courtesy of  band member André Allen Anjos (Mr. RAC himself). Don’t let his star status fool you, however. The pragmatic are clearly a collaborative effort and have a very different sound than many of RAC’s remixes. Speaking of, here is RAC member Anndrew Maury’s remix of The Pragmatic’s “Circles.”

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.

Remix Roundup! ∞ Vol. 1

Yo, for real, it’s the weekend and its time to shake your moneymaker (not implying y’all are strippers or whatever). I stumble across a ton of awesome remixes as I surf this information ether-highway of ours. I don’t like giving them dedicated posts cause 1) not everyone is super into remixes and 2) I don’t want to dilute the attention that should be given to new artists. You feel me? I knew you would. So anyway, I am starting another new feature at TBE where I round up some of the sweetest remixes of late and toss ’em at you without any of the usual garnish you find in a normal post. Who knows how often I’ll do it but they wont all be this big, I just had a lot of goodies to share. Anyway, listen, love, download, dance! Just do it after the jump.

With Jenny Owen Youngs I could definitely be Led To The Sea

joy-transmitter-failure

whatever you say but walking away is still running

Jenny Owens Young – Led To The Sea

OK, so I totally just got chills. As if listening to Jenny Owen Youngs’ music wasn’t beautiful enough, she herself is stunning, she says “fuck,” lists Motion City Soundtrack as an influence, her tunes are on eMusic, and then to read that she is touring with TBE faves Jukebox The Ghost? Damn man, too fucking hot. I kinda can’t handle it. Ok, be strong man, talk about the song. Ok, the song, the song. I can do it….. SO, “Led To The Sea” is foot stomper of a track that showcases Jenny’s tal…. ok, I can’t do it. Sorry, I just watched this and I’m speechless. Best ever. And the goosebumps again.
