Found this via some Californ-I-A sunshine rays 😉

I’ve really been digging this in a big way all this week as it’s just so full of so many choice cutz and reminds me a lot of some of the sort stuff I use to love and play when I started out as a dj around 5 years ago. It reminds me of the Madlib and Blue Note stuff and so it gives me a nostalgic feeling even though I never actually played any of the tracks on the mix.

It really is full of some incredible tracks and stylistically, yeah he sounds a bit like Madlib but I love it.  I think he has a great ear and an impeccable taste for tunes and the mixing is world class too!

I think this might be a front runner for one of my mixes of 2011, even though it came out over 5 months ago in 2010.


Here’s what’s said about it:

“BALANCED strikes a unique harmony between smooth-soulful
and emotive-experimental! Masterfully layered, and thankfully not too quick mix-schitzo! A calm, refined, inspiring treat! Have to say, I’ve always been a fan of my young Bro, DJ Anthony Valadez.”
