Daniel Disaster is one of the weirdest people I have ever met. His accolades are too numerous to count. His tracks are too massive to comprehend. He literally runs Atlanta. And yet, for some reason, he ended up crashing on my futon for a few days between shows in Brooklyn and Princeton. The college asked me to sort him out to come spin at a frat club, and it was quite possibly the most hilarious show I’ve ever seen. After a yell of ‘the beer is free… somebody get me a free beer’, things went apeshit. They kindly asked me to remove the ‘PG’ video we had cut, which obviously didn’t include an ivy league girl getting fingered right in front of us.
That said, Daniel spent his entire stay playing tracks that I didn’t expect, and sat in the dark in my apartment listening to Salem at 4am. I will never understand those 3 days.
But this mix is a perfect example what I consider to be an incredibly strong movement. I’ve heard many names for it. Most people seem to be leaning towards ‘Witch House’, or some similar variation. From everything to the Grim – Faded tape, to the Grave Wave mix Mishka provided, it seems people are drawn to this mellowed out shit with heavy drums and Screw influence. This mix encompasses that vibe perfectly. I can’t even say I knew it dropped. It went up a couple weeks ago, and somebody from Australia linked me to it as I was home rewiring my setup. It’s sad how disconnected I am.

Also ran across this banger Heroes and Villains produced. They share booking agencies with Tamara Sky, and I was curious how long this would take to happen.
