Half-jazzed: the best of both worlds, expressive instrumentation laid on rock-steady beats … As the first track attests, this mix was meant to draw heavily from the jazz catalog and that's the terrain explored for the first half of the show -- from the straight-up jazz stylings of the Afternoons in Stereo beauty that opens the show through house beats reiminiscent of Kevin Yost … by the halfway point, we're drawn unapologetically into the lounge/house groove. But keep alert for the quirkier late players, two joints from the 2004/2005 heyday of Scandinavian EDM, Husky Rescue's "Summertime Cowboy" and "Spring to Kingdom Come" from Flunk. Karl Moestl's "Love is my Religion" gets the Kraak & Smaak Remix treatment with the baddest rhythm section in recent memory. We close out with a viral number courtesy of The Gregory Brothers on their youtube channel -- I don't know about you, but as much as I want to laugh at DoubleRainbowDude, this tune really just makes me happy.
