It was the night of their <a href="http://www.ticketfly.com/event/688967-swim-team-trans-pecos-yung-queens/">first event</a> at Trans Pecos, Kanyon was first to DJ (I believe intentionally to draw in street goers and neighbors), but all I remember was his bringing in all freaks to the dance floor. Mad limbs were jutting out in directions that never repeated themselves, bass was low-level richter scaling Ridgewood, exorcisms being performed via auditory sensory immersion, and eventually the music itself birthed a baby in the back bathroom toward the end of Kanyon's set. The day before, Kanyon, <a href="https://soundcloud.com/fugitive_nyc/">Fugitive</a> and I were driving under a high line, early October, so the windows were down, and I figured my old system could compete with the train above. I popped on <a href="https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8PvH6BjcfN0">Ivy Barkakati's "Obras"</a>, which did the trick. After, Kanyon asked me to send the release to him, and that night he added it into his mix for the next day's Swim Team event. Thus, within all this information, I've huge confidence in Kanyon's ability to mix. Live sets. Online sets. <a href="http://bootlegtapes.bandcamp.com/album/palladium">An album</a>. The boy's got the goods. Wielding brilliant cover art by <a href="https://www.instagram.com/elbret_prez">Elbert Perez</a>, <i>Weekends Alone</i> presents Kanyon as both a club and studio master. Even including some unreleased and "?" tracks, <i>Weekends Alone</i> is listenable in all life's situations, so don't continue to waste time reading my non-sense, Kanyon just put in some WORK: Stream below, and subscribe to our podcast <a href="http://www.tinymixtapes.com/feeds/chocolate-grinder-mixes.xml">here</a>. <iframe width="100%" height="166" scrolling="no" frameborder="no" src="https://w.soundcloud.com/player/?url=https%3A//api.soundcloud.com/tracks/259795346&amp;color=ff5500&amp;auto_play=false&amp;hide_related=false&amp;show_comments=true&amp;show_user=true&amp;show_reposts=false"></iframe> <i>Weekends Alone</i>: &bull; Kanyon - ? &bull; Babi Audi - Sing For Me &bull; Akito - Codeine Claps &bull; Babi Audi - You a Life &bull; ? &bull; Ciara n Mechatok - Nite Overdose Emigr Blend &bull; Syymstress - Bagz2 &bull; Divoli S'vere and Beek - Blow Ya Smoke Strawberry Kush Remix &bull; Shady physician - Onyx &bull; Yoshitaka Hikawa - wt/yt &bull; Action Figures - Hormesis &bull; John Brooklyn - ? &bull; Shalt x Supremes - Unconfined (Dis Fig Bootie) &bull; Action Figures - Lost Conversation &bull; Booba - Génération Assasin (Detente Refix) &bull; Morten HD x Lil Trav (Kanyon Blend) &bull; Vanilla Hammer - Crabskin (Kanyon Mishap) &bull; Rahn Rahn Splash x Chub Splash - http://flexxin.com &bull; Acemo - Yup (hm) &bull; Greatest Mistake - Sleep Patterns Reading KANYON Fri, 22 Apr 2016 20:02:01 +0000 C Monster 151666 at http://www.tinymixtapes.com Guest Mix: t e l e p a t h テレパシー能力者 http://www.tinymixtapes.com/chocolate-grinder/mix-guest-mix-t-e-l-e-p-t-h-terepasineng-li-zhe-dorimidansumitukusu <img src="http://www.tinymixtapes.com/sites/default/files/imagecache/460_Width/1604/telepath.jpg" alt="" title="" class="art" width="460" height="460" /> t e l e p a t h &#12486;&#12524;&#12497;&#12471;&#12540;&#33021;&#21147;&#32773; is one of the purest of adventurers. <a href="https://virtualdreamplaza.bandcamp.com">You may find a depth of proof by clicking on this sentence</a>.

It's so dope that: <ul> <li>The first time I played it on my way to work, I blew through a stop sign and got pulled over by Garden City Police;</li> <li>When the copper asked if my license had "anything outstanding on it," I was tempted to respond, "Just your blood, pig," then roll over his foot and take his partner on a high-speed chase through nearby school zones and shopping districts;</li> <li>I got out of the ticket, possibly because the cop was a big fan of <em>unreleased death grips</em>;</li> <li>Kai's drop at the beginning makes me feel kind of famous, maybe the same way he felt hearing <a href="https://soundcloud.com/kaiwhiston/spick-span">Mary-Anne Hobbes</a> talk about him on BBC6 Recommends; and</li> <li>It should come with a Surgeon General's Warning that says, "Be Advised: This Guest Mix is so dope, it may melt your face like a shot of Krokodil to the eye socket." </ul> Kai Whiston's debut EP called <em>Houndstooth</em> will be out sometime soon on <a href="http://wearetar.com/index">TAR</a>.

Not being a fan of "dance" music in general, I was drawn in by the striking cover art. Duh. And after giving the preview for the tape a listen, I was immediately pulled in by Neil Reinalda's (a.k.a PHORK, a.k.a. P.H.O.R.K., a.k.a. People’s Higher Order of Royal Kinship) sharp and distancing outlet for pulse and purpose. His use of supreme head-nodding syncopation seemed to speak to my loopy noodle, but it was more so the surrounding sounds that caught my attention. A door was unlocked. The feel of the music took me to an destination wedding where the to-be-married couple had skipped town and coasted away with an ill mix in the deck, knowing fracture was inevitable, but loving the moment, all while the stragglers and hanger-ons of the wedding party waited for their romance pills to be served up with a tasty glass of cool water. No such cups of H2O produced themselves, though. The couple drove away, and eyelashes were lost and never wished upon. From that moment on, I was hooked. Neil has kept on bringing the hits, by the way. Like a frosty cigarette break, his back catalog (on the likes of NNA, Time No Place, Orange Milk, Dirty Pillows, Opal Tapes, Noumenal Loom, Player Press, and, most recently, Pastel Voids) is like a bundle of arctic intakes, filled with mind-swaddled repetition and scrapes of familar and not-so-familar sounds. Plus, there's this <a href="https://dirtypillows.bandcamp.com/track/untitled-six">fucking gem</a>. But, I digress. Being the nice chap that he is, Neil gifted us a mix of unreleased material, entitled <cite>Gathered Together And Lost Alone (Live 2015 Mix)</cite>. Composed of what he describes as "... a version of the PHORK live set from last year, recorded in one take", this mix is a jagged little pill, so swallow soft. Ain't no water at this club. Just nitric acid. Also, be on the lookout for a new PHORK cassette on Sacred Phrases, to be released later this month.

Erik, a.k.a. Meme Vivaldi) has been in contact with Tiny Mix Tapes (specifically me) since I (C Monster) had a Facebook account. Actually, when I deleted my name from the internet, Erik and I had a brief period of black-out comm, considering we only used Facebook to chat. Since we've linked back up, and every time we comm now, it's p much heaven in a half-pipe. So, this is a real honor to introduce a totally original guest mix by the Spaniard under his outrageous project name, AFRIKA PSEUDOBRUITISMUS. Besides his most recent release, <a href="https://poorlittlemusic.bandcamp.com/album/afrika-pseudobruitismus-sunshine-scorpio-rising-plm115-c60"><i>Sunshine Scorpio Rising</i></a> -- WHICH might not actually be his most recent musings, as I get weekly e-mails from Erik about new tracks/releases -- <i>BLACK MOLLY & MONEY OM</i> was admittedly drawn from inspiration listening to old Hype Williams works. And I can hear that influence, ya. But for me, AFRIKA PSEUDOBRUITISMUS' mix is more-so a satire on general meditation and guidance-to-success samples. Like, my boss came by earlier to chat, and <i>BLACK MOLLY & MONEY OM</i> was BLARING (I was on lunch, so it was W/E), I turned it down, but he was like "What do we have here? Can you understand what they're saying?" and cranked the stereo. Honestly: NO, I CANNOT, and I said that. <i>BLACK MOLLY & MONEY OM</i> is twisted. Though, that's no surprise considering AFRIKA PSEUDOBRUITISMUS has monopolized an entire genre of music all to himself. Don't ask me what you'd call that genre, but after a dose or two of <i>BLACK MOLLY & MONEY OM</i>, you're eyes will kaleidoscope into a cult symbol of emoji that only a meme may fixxx.

I open up Ableton with no preset format and work from the bottom up. It always feels more natural that way." Bored Lord released his debut album last summer, <a href="http://www.tinymixtapes.com/chocolate-grinder/listen-bored-lord-i-get-no-rest">Omens and Sigils</a>, on <a href="http://sturmundklang-records.com/releases.html">Sturm and Klang</a> Records. It was a woozy record, full of human error and emo synth hooks. It reflected the malaise of living in a Southern metropolis, where everyone is up to no good and growlers, head shops, and barbecue joints are to be found on most street corners. Liquor stores, too. "My songs derive from little melodies that find their way looping in my head. It's always somewhere inconvenient when I’m inspired. I’m in the shower or out and about, on the way home. I have to rush to my laptop and try to capture what I have." The <a href="https://s3.amazonaws.com/cdn01.mishkanyc.com/sites/default/files/uploads/2012/07/workaholics_307_lords_force_extra_640x360.jpg">Lord</a> himself moonlights as 1/4 of <a href="https://www.facebook.com/rarennudes/">Rare Nudes</a>, a label that specializes in post-internet fetishism and booty-shaking beats of of all colors. This particular mix he crafted for us highlights some of the artists on the Rare Nudes roster.

Baron's latest, <a href="http://www.tinymixtapes.com/chocolate-grinder/listen-garment-distric-feral-surfers"><cite>Luminous Toxin</cite></a>, sees her taking an all-instrumental (and therefore less hierarchical) approach, a breezy yet thoughtfully arranged embodiment of the simplistic, melody-forward songs that play in her head. And it's delivered to us like an unexpected present, like grainy sand stuck to lips, like rainbows streaming from eyeballs, like humble meditative states widened to the aspect ratio of cinema. Below you'll find a guest mix that Baron lovingly crafted for Tiny Mix Tapes, and we couldn't be more excited to share it. Titled <cite>Waiting for the Gift of Sound and Vision</cite>, the mix features everyone from Coil and Licorice Roots to Hans-Joachim Roedelius and Judy Henske. Read Baron's description of it below. Also be sure to check her out live if you're around Pittsburgh (<a href="http://www.cmoa.org/third-thursday/">May 19</a> at Carnegie Museum of Art and July 16 at <a href="https://www.facebook.com/Vulvapalooza/">Ladyfest Pittsburgh</a>), as well as her contribution to a special audio-based sound portrait for a massive 250-artist <a href="http://johnriegert.tumblr.com">group exhibition</a> called <a href="http://www.spacepittsburgh.org/portfolio-view/john-riegert-2015/"><cite>JOHN RIEGERT</cite></a> (curated by <a href="http://www.brettyasko.com/category/other-things/12-John-Riegert">Brett Yasko</a>), which runs at SPACE Gallery from June 24 - August 22.

From The Garment District: <blockquote>I ended 2015 in the Nevada desert unexpectedly watching a Russian SL-4 rocket body re-entering the Earth's atmosphere on a clear December night, and began 2016 covering "Heroes" at a Pittsburgh music festival as the universe bid a collective and heavy farewell to Ziggy Stardust. Little did I know that this mix would become a de facto tribute to one of my favorite film pioneers, cinematographer Haskell Wexler &mdash; who also recently left this world &mdash; as I had already selected an instrumental (a cover of a composition by Love guitarist Johnny Echols) from Wexler's prescient 1969 film, <cite>Medium Cool</cite>. From India to Berlin, from interstitial moments of French horror and children's television, to cold western Pennsylvania nights absorbed by the eerie, serial tale of Victoria Winters at Collinwood &mdash; I hope these sounds take your ears to new places.</blockquote> Stream below, and subscribe to our podcast <a href="http://www.tinymixtapes.com/feeds/chocolate-grinder-mixes.xml">here</a>. <iframe width="100%" height="450" scrolling="no" frameborder="no" src="https://w.soundcloud.com/player/?url=https%3A//api.soundcloud.com/tracks/251719634&amp;auto_play=false&amp;hide_related=false&amp;show_comments=true&amp;show_user=true&amp;show_reposts=false&amp;visual=true"></iframe> - Glen A.

On <a href=https://soundcloud.com/profligatemusic/jet-black-king-of-the-world target="_blank"><cite>Abbreviated Regime</cite></a>, his latest dose, to be released on April 7, his birthday, Profligate biffs the signals just right and directs the listener's attention to the center of the ring where layers of curious sounds from alien objects drape over inventions of hypnotic repetition. Slime slides down Chinese poles; tents breathe mercury. We might also mention that Profligate's a real "champ" when it comes to mixes. Whatever the genre, whatever the focus - Album-oriented rock (AOR), Girl Group, Neil Young, 80's R&B (hosted by "cool cat" Goldberg) - this slugger knocks it out of the park. With this new mix, "For Sleep or Driving," appropriately suited for either, or, or both, he takes us, blindfolded and sipping highballs of Kentucky Dreams, on a drowsy shut-eye drive across one of those VHS covers featuring a highway and a smashed windshield, down-over basin and range, trickling past the fold-in equator into a cold eternal spread, where it's lights-out save for a pair of bird's eyes and some Semi's high beams. The stunt car dives off the dock, into the ocean, drifting south and slowly sinking, leaving a trail of pork rinds and a message, written long before vaporwave, in a ZzzQuil bottle.

Coined by Myles Dunhill (a.k.a. Treasure Hunt, a.k.a. A. G. Kush) and his Spanish pal, <a href="https://afrikapseudobruitismus1.bandcamp.com/">Erik</a>, NOP is pretty much the definition of Myles' label, Pedicure Records. Not only did Pedicure Records make <a href="http://www.tinymixtapes.com/features/2015-favorite-labels">TMT's top 2015 labels list</a>, but they've released some of the more forward thinking, satirical, future-driven, back-asswards music, both in light of recent PC Music explosion and generally just having fucking fun. Aye, you wanna have fun? It's Thursday night and like 9:30. No drugs? No booze? No sugar? No sex? Maybe some of those? Maybe all? <i>PON STOP NOP</i> is here to give you a Thursday night and/or Friday morning that may just change your life. Get an ear pierced. Find a new jorb. Shave your head. Adopt a dog. Be a beer.

In it, I asked if they'd be interested in creating a mix for us here at TMT, amongst other lesser, more carpet-centric questions. Their response? Oh buddy, just wait until you hear it. Strapped to the back of the sturdiest pigeon they could find, the duo sent over a bananas mix, providing some insight as to why they make the music they make, as well as a short response: "eat shit". Full of stylistic predecessors as well as some oddball choices, "Winter Mix" is the amazing and confusing hour and a half to soundtrack your extended lunch on this Tuesday afternoon.

The excitement in these mixes is all about two things, I believe: (1) hearing the influential sounds these musicians draw from, and (2) how these musicians produce ventures into the mind space of transitional and complementary mixing. Strategy was straight-up for the beat. GAHM involved the dilapidation of a warped mind. <a href="http://www.kranky.net/artists/christinavantzou.html">Christina Vantzou</a>’s <cite>CV</cite> is peacefully bent on a consistently-used minor scale that provides a Tuesday adventure like none other.

Angels were killed in the making of this compilation, their cherubim cries tracked in the mix itself. The sacrifices were conducted in a quiet coastal town overrun by the zombie cannibal followers of a dark stranger who’d returned after a century to spread his long-forgotten religion. It found feverish congregates in the local women’s college, where a new string of suicides raised few, if any, eyebrows. One who made it through now pursues a postgraduate degree in philosophy on the opposite coast. Hopelessly addicted, she fights daily with her live-in boyfriend, a starving artist turned serial killer, and loses herself in the Instagram feed of a photographer shooting gothic novel covers in abandoned castles overseas. There too, “Devil’s Night 2015” plays to a captive audience.

From <i>Ital's Theme</i> to the recently-released batch of Roche, Nackt, and Mr. Bronson cassettes, 100% Silk has evolved from the unfortunate "hipster house" tag to a straight-up, no-bullshit techno/house label, specializing in hypnotic, psychedelic sounds that can still jack up a dancefloor. Listeners who ditched the label when the rest of the blogosphere did have missed out on some great releases in contemporary electronic music. I could list them here, but the focus of this post is to highlight the best of this year's Silk releases, from Bobby Browser's <i>Club Spinning</i> EP to Cherushii's <i>Memory of Water</i> tape. Not every release is included, but the songs here rank among the best work that's come out of the label. Enjoy the mix, and if they're still available, check out the <a href="http://www.listentosilk.com/silk-shop">Silk Shop</a> for any remaining tapes and vinyl.
