Ah, the Monday after Halloween. Though I myself did not go crazy this weekend (just a few mellow parties here and there), I am sure some of you are going to be feeling the burn this Monday, and I mean burn by way of all the acid reflex post-candy overdosing fun, upset stomach from all the alcohol, and a headache or two. Yes, all that sugar plus alcohol means nothin’ but hangover, so I am sure you all will need a whole lot of coffee at the start of this week, and not just because you’ll be exhausted. That said, I don’t want to frighten you all back into the work-week with something that would compel sensory overload. This Monday, you’re going to have to ease back into the groove, and what better way to do that than with a funky mix by Vancouver-based DJ Neoteric?
For some reason, Canada seems to be producing some of the best DJs in the game. Maybe it’s the water? Socialized healthcare? Who knows. Whatever it is, it works, and I hope they keep on putting out more where these came from. Neoteric’s been around for some while, producing and mixing his way around the blog and club scene, and frequently introducing his listeners to some of the most fun and interesting tracks/sets I’ve ever heard. His sound is diverse, yet consistent in that you have no doubt before pressing play that it’s gong to be good.
This mix he did for Los Angeles’ world-famous dance party The Do Over is no different. It’s a rich set filled with a little bit of house (Detroit and Chicago had their hands deep in this one), some 90s hip hop, and a lot of funk. Check it out, and by that, I mean play AND download. You will be very sad if you don’t.
