Julien believes that its not enough to be content from one burst of innovation or creativity. He talks about how Laid Back coalesced from an amalgamation of new web services, his own interests and personal beliefs. He emphasises that none of these projects are a solitary exercise, and that all of his stories involve collaborations between many people across both the physical and digital worlds.

We have been a little light on our DnB nice little mini-mix to wet you appetite. (via ☣ Mistanoize ☣ - RAM100 Mix Competition @RAMrecordsltd | Mixcloud - Re-think radio)
“With this selection I wanted to highlight the underlying similarities as they relate to Shaolin and Rastafarian spirituality. Beyond ineluctable Kung-Fu inspired reggae tunes featuring gong crashes, Chinese musical scales and Bruce Lee flick’s quotes & sound effects, I have also chosen mystical tracks reflecting a mood of deep spirituality and militancy.
Through a diversity of Jamaican forms and styles – from early dubs to rare roots and obscure chants over crashing dubs - this set features heavy bass-lines (and I do mean heavy), razor-sharp snare work as well as piercing horns patterns and emotionally charged sufferer’s vocal styles. Pure deadliness - straight outta the temple. ” (via Laid Back - Charles le Brigand - Dubbing the Dragon | Mixcloud - Re-think radio)
I was listening to this and for a second thought I was on a beach in Rio, then woke up and I was on the train going to Reading!
Four years gone and still can’t get enough. If you don’t know about J Dilla then check out http://tumblr.com/ZgtkhwEpphz9. He is modern hip hop in a nut shell. R.I.P
A chilled out mix to cruise through the rest of Wednesday, half way there!
Some soulful house with a few good vocal samples scattered through. Nice little pick me up if you need to do work or get ready for a party.
