SURFPUNX: Year 2012 - Feb-Brewin'

Most mixes created by our own Es Digga Tee start in similar fashion. While working around the house or driving to music set on "Play All", songs pop out of nowhere and demand your appreciation. Songs of this nature are what drive most DJ's to do their jobs, the melodies and tones created simply require an audience to enjoy them. It's one or two of these songs that often anchor the concept of each mix.

For this week's mix two idioms were followed. Jamiroquai's "Loveblind" was the initial inspiration with its eclectic arrangements, slow breakdown in the middle, but most importantly the undeniable beat and boogie the melody provides. One cannot help tap to the beat. The other inspiration was the RE:Generation Music Project featuring the talents of Mark Ronson, Skrillex, DJ Premier, Pretty Lights, & The Crystal Method.

As described on their website, "Follow DJ Premier, Mark Ronson, Skrillex, 
Pretty Lights and The Crystal Method as they remix, recreate and re-imagine 
five traditional styles of music. From the classical perfection of the Berklee 
Symphony Orchestra to the bayou jams of New Orleans jazz, our five distinctive 
DJs collaborate with some of today's biggest musicians to discover how our 
musical past is influencing the future."

With both concepts in hand I built around the varying musical styles they provide. This concoction when allowed to ferment, and lightly caressed creates "Feb-Brewin' - A Slick Symphony of Song." We trust you'll enjoy the banging sounds of EDM, Dubstep, House, Mash-Ups, Rock & Roll, & the unique styles that the RE:Generation Music Project creates. Enjoy!
