YK Summer Mix Anniversary

Pal of mine Michael Eades used to host an annual Summer Mix series. It was before everyone was on streaming sites, so you would have to patch together a zip file of mp3s, or stitch something together and host if yourself.

This week marks the 10th anniversary of my 2012 submission which is absolutely crazy to think about. It still bangs, in case you were wondering.

I cooked it up in Spotify but a couple of crucial tracks are missing. It is still a strong listen but isn’t the same.

The Super Cops (1974)

I caught the last chunk of this movie last night while flipping channels. It’s got lots of standard-issue 70’s NYC cop movie stuff in it, but the standout to me is the music. Holy cow is it good.

Jerry Fielding, a victim of the Red Scare in the 50’s, did the score to this but is more famous for his work for The Wild Bunch and Straw Dogs. I’m gonna pull this whole movie down as an audio file so I can dig into some audio clips and beats.

Snake Union – To Whom I’ve Never Met and Only Imagined

I know Dave from Snake Union. Here’s new music from his group. It is a bit more challenging that what I normally share here, but when you know people that do dope shit, you should share it.
