Whew!! Thought while I was on a roll I should at least finish Part 2. Might take me awhile to create Part 3. Still looking through my crates of vinyl & CDs for ones I haven't able to find as yet. Trying to make them something worth having. Hope you appreciate the effort, 'cause I certainly do... Ha! - Idiot Proof.

And yes I know this is a pretty nerdy thing to do, but I wanted to do something thematical & graff comes naturally as a topic for me.

Something to drop before going out tonight. A bit more of a personal connection this one, after the Mixer For Hire effort that was the crunk mix.

A 100% Aussie effort apart from an NZ ring in (What would an Australian mix be without one?

Walking from the train down the Devonshire Street tunnel is part of my life. Not a special part, not the worst part, but a part of my daily routine. At Central Station I walk from the train, head through the ticket gates at the southern end of the station (sometimes even with a valid ticket) and veer right - just like a few thousand other people every day.

Hilltop Hoods - All Stations
"On the way home . . ."
Just before you get to the actual tunnel there are a couple of junk food shops. "The Best Bacon and Eggs in Sydney," one of the shops boasts - inaccurately.

You can't get scallops though. You need to go to the other side of the station for that.

The Herd - Scallops
"Trusted trains departed . . ."
I find myself often walking against the tide. As I walk west though the tunnel, the masses are going east and vice versa. They head towards me like a wave - A surge flowing through an old vein.

What are they thinking? Some are nervous; some will be famous for repeating themselves. Some are second-guessing your every move, some will never learn, and some just need to get over it.

Stellar* - Nerve and Consequence
"When will I learn to just play the game?/When will I learn it's only a name?"
Once you reach the west-end of the tunnel you reach Henry Deane Plaza where there is a bar. You see people congregating there on a Friday afternoon getting an early start on their Friday night. The mood is relaxed and it a great temptation to swing over there.

Resin Dogs - Daily Trouble
If you make it past the bar you are at UTS and the Tech. Sydney University is also not too far away down the road. That means that there are lots of students about.
Where there are students there are campaigners and protesters. What are they protesting today?

Space - Eye Spiral
"Politicians lining up . . . Black hearted killer, cold blood swiller."
The beggars, blind buskers, beat boxers and bastards who are in my way - along with everyone else - make up what the tunnel is to me. Even when the tunnel is empty all these memories are still with me.

Tzu - Train Song
"Let's savour our travel."
The tunnel goes underneath Broadway. As the night becomes later, the revheads come out to fill this street.

Downsyde - Street Machines
"Thoughts filled with sin I'm a speed freak."
That's the Devonshire Street Tunnel - A part of the Sydney public transportation system. Is it a great system? Is it even a good one?

Well it's the system that I live with.

Good Buddha - The System
"Sydney's got the system.You can put it to the test."

Since stumbling across the 'Respect Overdue' compilation that Creative Vibes put out some years ago, I have been hot on the trail of rare and interesting funky music recorded in Australia, my own backyard. The following mix is a testament to my love of local flavours, and a bit of a poke at people who don't think Aussies can be funky. This mix includes some of my favourites, some of my discoveries, and a couple of very, very rare numbers. I wanted to make it seamless, but time was a factor in putting this together. Still, for the most part I've managed to get tracks to blend into eachother. Let me know what you thought! - DJ Kinetic, Sydney/Blue Mountains.

Okay, I've finished part 1 of my 2 part graffiti focused mixes. Took a lot of research & persistance so hopefully it goes down well. This one is a mix of US, English, Swedish, Norwegian & Australian tracks. I added bits of dialogue, used some effects & created a few edits, nothing too fancy schmancy, so it should flow okay. Part 2 should be just as solid. I could have made 3 x 60min mixes, but instead I cut it down to 2 x 70min mixes, so as not to force myself to include some 2nd rate tracks. I also wanted to use only contemporary songs. Rhymesayers member DJ Jay Bird already has a mix called Aerosolics that used a lot of the classics, so I went deeper. If was to release this properly I would've spent time adding cuts, but as this is a freebie I relented on spending more time on it. - Idiot Proof.

BUT I WAS COOL: Lance Link

Here's the second Beatnik themed set from me. This time 'round, it's the songs that exploited the beatnik movement and poked fun at the second wave of "drop outs" with their contrived berets, bongo's and bad poetry crossing over into mainstream popular culture. In other words, a whole lotta hipster fun! - Lance Link

Finally did a mix I can stick up on here..
All 60s - 70s - and early 80s world beats, although there is a big slab of Brazil stuff. Heaps of drum breaks / samples / funk / jazz - All dope shit!!
I did it as a special mix on my radio show last week, and thought I should link it here. It runs for almost an hour and a half, so it's not too CD friendly, but perfect for your iPod. Enjoy. -Frenzie.
