Mazes to the Motherlode: Brandon Locher

 

I used to fret about making mixtapes, anyone that makes them knows the deal about having to repeatedly start again due to an error committed along the way, such as the volume too high, something turned down, off, a missed cue point, take 56, uff, enough already! I stopped fretting once I remembered it’s supposed to be fun. This selection covers nuff nuff in less than thirty minutes.  Fresh jams from Mutamassik, who came out with her new work Monday past, ‘Symbols Follow’.  It’s heavy heavy, her hardcore roots are not hidden, she is a minor threat indeed.  Last week I had a session on the beach in Santa Cruz, por fin.  Was looking forward to dropping the DRC tune, and it worked like a dream.  A lot of other joints from that session are included here, you are just missing the sand, don’t let that put you off.  Gotta give props to Patrick de Groote who organizes the Sfinks Festival.  It was through that festival I saw Máximo Jimenéz, a Colombian vallenato singer, a singer of the pueblo, of the people, he had to leave Columbia quick quick, to live in exile.  The truth damn near got him killed. Must get an update on his whereabouts.  Right, work to do.  PEace.
