¿はなみーン? Impulse Travels x Traklife Kickstarter Mix v10

Traklife Kickstarter Mix Series: Vol. 10 – ¿はなみーン?

¿はなみーン?” — This is a play on the words hamami which is the popular past time of picnicking and hanging out under the cherry blossoms when in season, and nameeen?, which is of course a quickened way of asking know-what-I-mean? This was a deductive thought process based on the first song picked for the mix, a cover of ‘Pink and Blue’ by Andre 3000 of Outkast, literally thinking of those two colors, and trying to figure a visual for the cover art, and tying it all into IMPULSE TRAVELS encompassing international vibes.”

Our first episode of 2016 began with a small tribute to our fallen radio brother Zin, who was killed in a car accident in Denver the day before this episode aired.

We heard about his passing only a few hours earlier, and decided to say a few words and play some of his music to start off the show to pay our respects. Zin, founder of All Real Radio and a veteran of Houston’s KPFT Pacifica Radio, was a beloved and key member of the Houston scene, where Impulse Travels has its roots. He was also an MC, poet, activist, avid supporter of artists of all kinds, and an encouraging friend whose light reached well beyond the cities of Houston and Denver, where he split his time. We will miss you forever, Zin, but your light shines eternal.

The show also features the return of empanadamn, who took over the controls for a bit to play his first themed set of the new year paying homage to New York’s first truly brick night of this Winter season. (It was about 15 degrees outside while we aired this show).

Overall, we played songs from Zin + Snap (Houston), Sam Gellaitry (Scotland), Goldlink (DMV), Maribou State + Holly Walker + Martin Iveson (UK), Fat Freddy’s Drop (New Zealand), Monique Bingham + Black Coffee (NYC + South Africa), José James (Minneapolis), Mar (Amsterdam), Si Tew (London), Rudimental + Skream (UK), Louie Lastic (Virginia + D.C.), Phil Gerus (Moscow), Sweater Beats (L.A. + Philippines), Sivey (Manchester), Kings Of Convenience + Thero (Norway + Florida), Ryan Hemsworth + Grynpyret (Halifax + Stockholm), Singularis (Nederland), Chloe Martini + Alyss + Maxo (Warsaw + NYC), a l l i e (Toronto), Nina Simone (North Carolina) and more.

The close of 2015, a tumultuous year of spectacular highs and soul-crushing lows, wasn’t wonderful for me. My head has been a mess ever since I got back to New York in December, and the holidays didn’t help the way I hoped they would. Already in a down mood, the heartbreaking (but sadly unsurprising) lack of indictment of Tamir Rice’s murderer earlier in the day dampened my spirits even more. Prepping for the 2015 close-out show, remarkably enough our 200th episode, I felt broken. When I feel broken, music is my therapy, and I figured what better way to mend my broken spirit than with the music that has healed and inspired so much of me in the past: my beloved broken beat.

This one is definitely for my bruk heads, but it’s also for anyone out there who just likes to vibe on good music. The show features tunes from the brilliant minds of 4Hero, Neon Phusion, IG Culture / New Sector Movements, Bugz In The Attic, Vikter Duplaix, Masters at Work, Swell Session, Herbert, Bembe Segue, Moonstarr, Restless Soul, Recloose and more. It’s not 100% broken. There’s some other stuff in there, too. But broken is the theme.

It’s crazy to me that most of these songs are 10-15 years old.

Please keep in mind, this is not meant to be a “best of” or any kind of comprehensive representation of broken beat. It’s just me playing some songs I found on my hard drives that I really loved back in the day, and still love so much now.

I don’t even have most of my old broken favorites on mp3. I’m old. My bruk days were vinyl-based, but I wasn’t trying to lug a bunch of vinyl from Brooklyn all the way up to the Harlem at 3am on a Tuesday morning. I’ve paid enough of those dues a thousand times over, and I wasn’t up for it anyway. I feel no more pressure to be about that life. I got nothing to prove.

Not all the classics are here. And not all your favorite songs are here. And not all the great broken artists are represented. And that’s okay. Your playlist may vary. Here’s just a little something I put together because I was in a mood, and I needed something soothing for my soul to lift me back up. So relax, turn the volume up, and come dance with me and see what it’s like on the other side of the universe.
