an old mix tape i made back in 2009 during the last days of the glass onion glory when the spoken word night speakeasy was its peak. in part inspired by the roof raising R&B set in the conspiracy camp on the last night of secret garden party during which people went immeasurably more crazy for crackly old vinyl floor fillers than i had seen anyone react to dubstep or electroswing all weekend. it truly was an oldskool rave. the ceiling was dripping and the air was literally fogging up with sweat. amazing. the sequel to the first vintage compendium (obviously) volume two takes us on a journey through everything from pre-dreads bob marley in his days as a dapper R&B singer to some 20s flapper business, bollywood rock & roll, and even some truly x-rated filth from the dark angel herself lucille began. enjoy!
(sorry about the ten minutes of silence at the end, whoops)
