Editors' Picks

The Message

A brilliant collaboration effort by CDK and Shockshadow. Emotional enough to bring a tear to Dr. C’s eye I’m sure. ; )

Borrow and Take

by: ASHWAN
Call it cut-hop or hip-glitch, ccMixter veteran Ashwan captures the meaning of ‘make something new from something old’ in this collage of beats, scratches and vocal samples.

Bonus: listen for the spits by curious!

Monogomous

Beautiful mix…Jungle Bros meets Blackalicious. Tons of sonic surprises in an eclectic hip hop mix reminiscent of alot of the great groups of the hip hop underground.

Dont Stop REMIX

by: DaMo
Damo is a tru pimp. This is a great club style hip hop track. It don’t stop… it just flows. On the mastering side the levels on each aspect are prime. Download this or catch it on ccmixter radio.

Braving the Rain

haunting yet blissful, shochshadow pulls it out again, making one of the most beautiful works i have heard here, trip-hop at it’s peak
big bass, little piano, perfect vocals make this mix really reach the listener

Whatever

Cool, sexy, smooth flow comes at ya from a stunning track from Tru_ski (his first upload here). A perfect production, rap and use of the Copyright Criminals samples. The sound reminds of the very best of 70’s soul, yet with a modern edge that makes your insides melt.

To say we’re looking forward to more from Tru is the understatement of the new year.

Girl and Supergirl [Trance mix 2006]

Definitely an edgy late night club style trance mix. DJs should eat this track up. I’m not a huge trance fan…but as a music connoisseur this ranks up there with some of the best trance tracks I’ve heard. Dutch Dance Connect just upped the ante in the ccmixter Trance Tags with this track.

Reworked Out Fine

the new classic rock is here with this amazing work from mc jack.
bongo’s, hip-hop, and soul pulse from this very mellow mix.
with brad vocals on top, this song is a ten..

I Never Get Out

The Electronic Cowboy is in full effect!!! shockshadow is back with a new joint that’s so stylish and hip that you would’ve never suspected that the original sounded like a Robert Palmer B side cut. This track is definitely dance floor ready and ccMixter approved!!!!
Pat Chilla The Beat Gorilla

Lullaby

by: _ghost
I would put this on a mix tape between Badly Drawn Boy and LemonJelly. A dreamy Lullaby by [space]ghost. Or is it [underscore]ghost? ; )

Modern ambient with beautiful vocal touches by Krishinda.

INSTRUMENTAL (Future Retro Activity)

Instant satisfaction, close your eyes and feel the inspiration of
“Future Retro” the Beat Gorilla comes back strong reminding us that beats are stil alive

Finally (just guitars)

by: HC-7
smooth acoustic rock that totaly brings you into the moment.
with a mainstream feel, and emotional guitars this track just begs to bew heard.

Greezy Like Crisco

Funny, ironic, thumping and beautiful all at the same time. Another great example of diggin’, rippin’, hostin’ and postin’ here at the mixter.

How Soon (I Forget) (Treatment)

An old(est) school mix of C Layne’s How Soon I Forget.

Ever notice how great that first piece of music is when you get a new piece of equipment, instrument or toy? Well Victor just got a new acoustic guitar. : )

Lake of Stumps and Staubs

Chilling, eery pictoral creep through the mindscape of one of the more interesting of ccMixter’s active members. Digging through the crates of the samples here, you can count on Gurdonark to twist and mangle things inside out and when it works, as here, it’s bone chilling.

If I were making films (especially ones that take place at night, when it’s raining, during a power out, and the phones are cut off) I would start with Gurdonark.
