Here for your spring-time listening pleasure is the best in bass music from the month of April! And for all the Eustaces out there, this mix series is now New Yorker magazine approved courtesy of pop music critic Sasha Frere-Jones.
You’ll notice too that the first half of this month’s mix may seem heavy on the ragga tip, but be assured it only reflects a month that’s been happily drenched in ragga. Perhaps it’s a result of the month’s budding flowers, the celebration of bud, or Budweiser (unrelated), but regardless of the influence, it’s an influential month in ragga.
For those who ain’t know: this mix is done live using black Technics 1200MKIIs, a Pioneer DJM-400, and Traktor Scratch Pro. Songs are chosen from a mixture of songs blogged about here on Trash Menagerie, songs downloaded for free from other blogs, an exclusive or two, as well as songs purchased using my recession era cash $.
Below you will find the tracklist as well as links to the blogs where songs were downloaded from. Download free music, but know that it’s free because people still buy music. Enjoy.
