-2nd Eclectic-

You didn't see this coming. I've spent so much time trying to put a theme to my mixes that I ignored how random library can be. You already know I mix in many elements that are complementary to library... I just didn't know it. So I'm back with an eclectic mix. The last one I did like this was Particularly Privy and that was over a year ago. The truth about this mix is that half of these tracks... you could say... are my rejected scores. Some of these I have wanted to post for some time, but they just didn't fit the overall theme. Even still, they're not TOO RANDOM, but they're still a variety of styles consistent with everything else I post. So this time I'm giving you blaxploitation, easy listening, funk, scat vocals, and relative new comers to my blog... Brazilian samba/funk/fusion.

First of all, this track by Remigio Ducros (Contropiede) has been skipped over more times than the top slice of a loaf bread. It was actually going to be on my first mix from back in 07 (FMAO). I think it's a dynamite track, but at the same time it was from my first generation of new found music. Much of that stuff has been buried many times over by my ever changing ever evolving tastes. Even though it wasn't that long ago, I really get fond memories from this track. It was a special time. I was born again in the eyes of music. Nothing else on the list gives me that same feeling of nostalgia. Also, don't get me wrong... if these tracks weren't fly to begin with, I wouldn't even have bothered.

I really have 10 favorites, but I left it at 5. "Angela" is my new fave. I'm really developing a taste for sleazy keyboard (you heard it here first... I'm coining sleazy keyboard!) "Manha" is cool as hell when it comes to the sleazy keys. I had it on repeat for like 5 hours when I first heard it. I'd like to thank an avid listener, (Mike) for schooling me on Brazilian music. I had more than I thought already in my archives, but the group Azymuth is really something special.

Also, I advise that you not sleep on Flaming Portrait. I made that mistake and didn't realize I was missing out on a gem (courtesy of JP expert H2O by the way). Kudos to another avid listener Okko for the other Katsuo Ohno track. I would like to get my hands on the full LP. And kudos to Un Salotto Borghese (see my blogroll) for Umiliani and El Chicles. Lastly, I've included the fan favorite as the last track. I had to change the mixpod some time.

Stay tuned for classic instrumentals and a fusion lounge mix.

Hi how are you?

I was looking through your blog, and I found it interesting, and inspiring to me, so I thought why not leave you a comment.

I too have a blog that I use out of Southern California here in San Diego.

Mostly it is a collection of artistic expression, and I have many friends with the same interests, maybe you can become my friend, and follow, and I can also follow you, if that is okay.

Well I hope to hear from you soon, and or read about you….LOL

Alright, it looks like you're keeping the ball rolling. I've yet to hear a mix that's not interesting, funky and/or enlightening in some way from here and this one looks no different.

I knew you'd include some Azymuth. Angela's Theme (Taxi) is one of the all-time great themes composed for TV, but I wouldn't call it sleazy. It's a mellow jazz-funk fusion, much too smooth to be sleazy.

I'll have to find more stuff for you to perouse. In the meantime I'll be digesting this new comp you've put together. See you.

Thanks everybody.

@Jesse... as you can see I already added you, but I'm just getting around to responding. I'm an artist too aspiring to get into the advertising industry. Check my site out... it's just a trailer at the moment, but I've gotten rave reviews. www.hrangue.com I have an old site, but it doesn't have my new work on it. I'm going to phaze that stuff out once I finish the new one.

@Mike... IMO, the only good keyboard is sleazy. I have a bad perception of keyboards so really sleazy is the only kind I'll listen to (unless it's some very cool electronica, but I generally don't like that sound) I think I know what you mean by sleazy though. I think Soul Dynamite is over the top sleazy.
