What We're Listening To

Golden Hour - September 5, 2006

Suck it up: Summer's gone.
But we were there for you, first with a mix to ease you into Summer, and now with this one to help ease you out of it. Starting with the anthem to late Summer and ending with a song for those frosty Fall nights (or shootouts in Miami). Named after the hour of dusk where the setting sun casts everything in a heroic light, where the humidity creaks, then crumbles as the frigid air settles over, and with cuts coming from such disparate places as the streets of Harlem, the shores of Sweden, and the fiery-hot loins of Alan Thicke, it has everything one could ask for.

So grab a seat on your roof, stoop, or balcony, pour yourself a tall stiff glass of amber spirits, turn on this mix, and watch the sky set fire and burn out.

Pop.Drop.Roll. - June 15, 2006

This Mix is SICK! (aka Breakin' All the Rules)

Getting sick is generally pretty shitty. However, it can have one redeeming quality: the chance to lie in bed (on painkillers) and listen to ambient music. Get the music by e-mailing cosmodromemag@gmail.com for some spaced out sublimity.

So So Broke 05.23.06

"Is anyone else noticing a pattern in the Hustlina mixes? By the 12th mix, we will probably have an entire Fall album, an entire Misfits album, an entire ESG album, and a whole bunch of hip hop."
Jeff Deutchman

Everyday I'm Hustlin'

ungloved and suited just fine v.2 - April 25, 2006

I don't really know what this title means, but whatev. There's no theme to this mix. I just haven't written or done really anything in a long time, so this is a start. I plan to listen to this shit while walking a dog tomorrow morning.

1. Black Menace: "Going Off" (s/t)
There must've been at least thirty people crammed into the studio during the recording of this track. Forties galore, amoung other refreshments.

Fuck the Working Week - Apr. 21, 2006

The original title was going to be "Welcome to the Working Week," but as the current title implies, fuck that.

The Man
1. Horace Andy: "Money, Money (The Root of All Evil)" (Skylarking)
Horace, how about you start things up by kicking it root down?

2. Neil Young: "Vampire Blues" (On the Beach)
This is an absolutely amazing song to pop on first when you walk out the door in the a.m. Especially if you're like me and like to wake up thinking about how oil men are runnin' this shit.
