new mussak 2 message mix

january is almost over ..  and ive just finished  my first mix of the new decade and my 30's, its the latest in my musak 2 message series for "rubbersidedown"
rubbersidedown is a bicycle messenger zine produced by messenger's in dublin letting people know whats going on in the messenger scene
 they asked me a few months ago if i would set up a music page for the zine's facebook page above

take kerr - muzak 2 message(rubberside down mix)
 basically a mix tape that would combine musical ideas with how i work when  I'm on my bike
i usally try to mix this in too parts the morning and the afternoon 
 the morning set starts with a cheeky sample from  "DJ food and DK'" solid steel snipets before  moving  into funk and hiphop with a quality "johnny cash" remix by "alabama 3"  also dropping my favorite  danish producer "pepe deluxe" excellent "salami fever" check the youtube video its bizarre!!!

in the afternoon i usually like to listen to more upbeat music on my mp3 player.. so like wise on this mix .. starting with some classic house music! sample  from "hugh masekela" gets things moving  flowing into  "daft punk" and "paperclip people's"  "throw" an all time favourite track of mine  with " "martin luther king'"s inspiring "i have a dream" speach  playing over! from house i quickly move into breakbeat with some nice tracks that i got from my friend junior when back in edinburgh over xmas .. 
after the breakz comes "blama! blama!"s " electro rockin  monster "only friend " this track is gonna be huge this year!  then into remixes of  indie rockers "the rakes" and "bloc party"  to finish ..
