Mixtape Monday: DJ Neil Armstrong

My man DJ Neil Armstrong is a mixtape mastermind. I’m hitting you off with the first of his AOK (All Out King) mix series, Warmfuzzy. If you don’t know about Neil Armstrong then imagine that dude that has every record ever printed and then imagine him mixing them. However, not in the, “yo check out this a capella over this instrumental” kind of way but in a “oh this one line rock track relates to this R&B joint correlates perfectly with this hip-hop joint that sampled this funk track that was used in the movie this little snippet is from.” The dude is meticulous in his choices and spends an exorbitant amount of time making things work together. Warmfuzzy was released on Valentines Day and is set up to make panties drop as well as make you laugh. The AOK mix cds continue with Extraordinary which is rock with artist like The Zombies, Interpol, and The Cure. The third is “Filthy” which gives you your hip-hop fix from cats like Trends of Culture, Wu, and the Roots crew. And the fourth, and so far final, is Oscillate Wildly which is a tribute to synths and potentiometers (Read:Debbie Deb, New Order, and Kraftwerk). I also recommend his Sweeet series. There are few DJ’s that take as much time with their craft as this dude and I can’t really big him up enough. Definitely check it.

I really like your blog and can tell that you work hard to maintain it. I especially like your mix tape feature. Keep up the good work!

Do you have any idea how to get an invite to view the And It Don't Stop blog? I used to be able to view it and posted comments to his site when I dug something. It would be greatly appreciated if you can provide any assistance with this.
