Chocolate Grinder Mix 46
Bread Trail to Jardunne

It’s hard for me to believe it’s been 464 days since we posted our last Chocolate Grinder mixtape. We’re talking pre-Far Side Virtual here, readers! But if history has taught us anything, it’s that human beings are fucking cruel it’s never too late to start making mixtapes again. So, it is in this spirit that we resurrect the Chocolate Grinder mixes, starting where we left off with #46.

For this mix, I tended to focus on beats — but don’t expect to hear a live drum set, and if you hear vocals on the mix, you can safely assume that it’s sampled. Indeed, rather than guitar, bass, and drums, here we have MPCs, SPs, and synths, courtesy of crazy US beat makers (Ahnnu, Massacooramaan, aaronmaxwell), the avant-Right-Guard© (BEBETUNE$, Dean Blunt & Inga Copeland, Dolphins into the Future), and a couple footwork producers I can’t shut the hell up about (DJ Rashad, Paisley Parks). It’s all book-ended by someone who’s clearly suffering from Multiple Personality New World Disorder.
