BUDDHA BEATS 73
This month's mix is a serious exercise in the hard/dark techno genre. I have combed through my collection for the selections used here, and they're here because of their sonic characteristics as well as rhythm and danceability. There will be artist names you may have never heard of. If you hear a track you like, I urge you to go and support them. Because like yours truly, every little bit helps. Make sure you have earplugs to save your hearing, and stretch before dancing, especially to this mix, as we'll be traveling at 130+ BPMs. And I wouldn't want you to pull a muscle or anything.
BUDDHA BEATS — Episode 72 / Drum & Bass Mix
So, for this month’s mix, I wanted to return to one of the first styles I got into as a DJ. Back then, music like this fell under the name of “breakbeat”. This evolved into a much better one: DRUM & BASS. And like many other electronic genres, it has its offshoots. Jungle, Jump-Up, Tech-step, Ragga-Styles, Intelligent, Jazz-step, Atmospheric, Neurofunk, Hard-step, Dark-step, as well as Dubstep. From these we also now have the sultry, jazzy Liquid Funk (lots of beautiful vocals, very dream-like). If you want to check out some DnB artists on your own, look up Goldie, Doc Scott, DJ Rap, Aphrodite, Grooverider, Fabio, and S.P.Y. for starters. Record Labels to seek out: Metalheadz, Propa Talent, Good Lookin’, Hospital Records, Moving Shadow, and 31 Records, for some seriously sick tunes. Full track listing on www.daibutsumusic.com

BUDDHA BEATS — Episode 68 / Juneteenth House Mix
This month's mix is a grooving house mix that has some classics, as well as some tracks that have been disco-flipped so beautifully, that I had to include them. I had a lot of fun putting this mix together. There's even some "neighborhood cookout" style funk too! Lots of fun, groovy, disco-style house vibes this month. What a great way to celebrate our latest national holiday, Juneteenth!
