Here’s a great mix of tunes by our mate DJ RAJAH from the excellent SOUL COCINA blog.

What I really love about this mix is that it’s a great LISTENING mix and features so many great artists and so many diverse genres.  Not only that though, it also features a bunch of pirate mp3 tunes from Honduran electronic stores in DJ Rajah’s home Barrio, San Francisco Mission District.

It comes in four MEGA parts!


Press play on your walkman at the top of Twin Peaks just before sunrise. Walk down to Mission Street… put cassette or 8 track into your low rider hoopty parked on mission street. Drive slow. till sunset.
