'Worthy' promo mix for your listening pleasure.

There’s nothing like a new mix to brighten your long workday. That’s why when this promo mix from San Francisco’s own — Worthy, came across my desk I had to post it for you all.
The mix, “Station Grape” skates the line between techno, tech-house, and minimal and features his upcoming new music on including his December Anabatic release Madcap.
Worthy is no stranger to the music game, after moving to San Francisco in 2001 he set up his studio and began producing and Djing around the city. Teaming up with Dirtybird, and eventually launching his own label Anabatic Records Worthy has taken his musical musings to whole new level. His remix work has shown up on Curfew, Utensil, and Tentigo Records, as well as DJ charts across the world.

Listen to the mix!

Check out his underground hit ‘Work the Walls’ on Anabatic Records, and view the accompanying video

Now sit back, and enjoy the funk!

'Catnip' Polarizes America

It was a big week for Mike Monday’s ‘Catnip’ video. A couple weeks ago iTunes featured it as their video of the week. Some loved it, some hated it…. Mike had a few words to say about it himself, and I couldn’t agree more.

Take a read….

The hubris of my last post is worthy of a Greek tragedy. After reading the frankly hilarious Catnip video reviews on iTunes US, I have started to wonder whether I really meant what I said. How could anyone get so angry about something as harmless and fun as Catnip? I can’t help but think that the more vitriolic reviews say more about the reviewer than the video itself…….

There’s more – see the rest here.

Amazing Obama Photo Documentary

It is truly an exciting time to be alive. Two days ago, the world changed for the better in so many ways as Barack Obama accepted the responsibility and the role of the President Elect of the United States of America. While for many it seems that Obama was created to take on this role, there were many, many months of hard work and preparation in order for this amazing historical event to take place. For 22 months, Obama took his message of Hope and Change across the country, and Scout Tufankjian, a photo journalist from Brooklyn New York was along for this remarkable journey documenting each state, city, town, and individual that the Obama campaign touched. This incredible work can be seen on Scout’s website and will soon be gracing bookshelves all across the world with Yes We Can the book. Through her intimate and thoughtful photographs, Scout illustrates how the Barack Obama campaign for President has brought new life and meaning to the concepts of change, hope, unity, and equality. Historic and transformative times such as today are few and far between, and the photographs taken by Scout Tufankjian help us to understand the meaningfulness of this time and to hold onto it forever. So, take a look and enjoy.
