The Number One Songs In Heaven
FEx Chicago Promo Mix
December 18, 2011 11:22 PM PST
I put together a quick 30 minute promo mix to give you an idea of what I'm working with at our FEx (Foreign Exchange) parties in Chicago. The dance floor stays packed and the women outnumber the men 3 to 1. Respect to MC Zulu.
// 1ST SATURDAYS at SUBTERRANEAN //

Brasil vs Africa vs India
Music from all over the world that serves as the foundation for more modern global sounds. While some of these songs are newer they have a strong quality that, for me, categorizes them as rootsy/classic sounding. These songs are not about parties, intoxication or the like. In all languages the tunes speak of substance and real life. I used music influenced by (not necessarily created in) 2 countries and a continent. A few of these songs are my own edits. The music on this mix is taken from vinyl, mp3 and CD. I did my best to preserve some of the quality of the music but there are obvious faults. The mix was done live with 2 Technic 1200s, DJM 909 Mixer, SSL-3 and a Korg Kaossilator-Pro in my home on a Saturday night in May 2011.
You can hear this and more at the FEx party in Chicago on first Saturdays at Subterranean.Juke

Earth music filtered by the clouds and into the heavens...Hip Hop, Reggae, Jazz, Electronica, Funk, Disco, House, Afrobeat and more.
Food for your ears...
Born and bred in Chicago's Logan Square neighborhood, NewLife was surrounded by music since birth. As the son of a musician/vocalist and an artist, he has always been described as someone who never fell into the modes of traditional thought. This carries over into his diverse brand of music and the styles of beats that just seem to choose themselves while he's on the decks. Being introduced to Hip Hop culture by a childhood friend who migrated from the Bronx in the early 80s heavily influenced his musical feel. Always giving the crowd what they want and at the same time giving them what they need keeps people coming back...
