Spring Buds III : Fiddleheads Unfurling (Beardy Manfolk Equinox)



Welcome back to the Podcast Cafe on the verge of springtime! Make yerself comfortable as DJ Fundi serves up a blend of mostly-new beardy manfolk from many of our musical heroes: M. Ward, Andrew Bird, Damien Jurado, Iron & Wine, the Cave Singers, Sturgill Simpson, Bon Iver... and a surprise appearance by Ms. Lucinda Williams in the midst of it all. These modern folk songs are often haunting, sentimental, sometimes spooky, always satisfying. Don't know why so many bearded-men-folk-singers released new albums all at the same time, but they did, and DJ Fundi is here to help you sift through to find the best and most nutritious nuggets. If you like what you hear tonight in our Spring Buds III gathering, support the artists and buy their records, as well as consider making a donation to the Podcast Cafe to help us keep the lights on and the music flowing.

Welcome to Episode #103! As in previous episodes El Blanco Chango and SnowGreen SpinCycle, DJ Fundi typed a word in to iTunes -- in this case, obviously, "black" -- and challenged himself to make a fun, interesting & coherent mixx from the search results. This was a pretty easy color challenge as you might imagine, and it offered a wide array of funky, soulful, jazzadelic and reggae-skankin' tunes.

Starman Songs: Tribute to David Bowie

Bowie-Bjork

Mixed by DJ Playaduster and DJ Fundi / January 2016

We attempted to honor the life, music and creative legacy of David Bowie after his sudden departure from Planet Earth. We collaborated on this mix that features Bowie's songs (in somewhat chronological order), interviews, news reels, a few choice covers and a handful of remixes. When choosing tracks, we had studio cuts, live versions, remixes and sometimes Bowie's reinterpretations of them re-recorded 20+ years later ~ we often blend several sources in to one track, so listen carefully! So much gratitude for this magical human being and all that he left behind.

Travel well, Spaceman. We'll miss you.

Love is the Future: 2015 Favorites

101-Pluto-2015Favs_opt


It's that time of the year again when DJ Fundi goes digging through the past 12 months of music to find, then mix, the best 2015 had to offer. It was a shitty year in many ways: Paris, San Bernadino, Lebanon, refugee crisis, drought & wildfires, melting ice sheets, the murder of Cecil the Lion, Donald Trump. Luckily we have the balm of music to soothe our souls and take us away to our happy place, and this past year offered up a very wide variety of amazing releases. Sit back, put your feet up, nurse your hot toddy and escape in to this 90-minute mix made lovingly by the hands and heart of your friends at the Podcast Cafe...

Never mind the graphic ~ it's our 100th episode!! I typed the color-word "White" in to my iTunes and several dozens songs came up. I made an hour+ music mix from these options, enjoying the random constraints as I attempted to craft an audio journey for myself and for you too. It helped me to dig deeper in to my vaults!

Rain Return

Screen Shot 2015-09-05 at 6.47.03 PM

It's been a very interesting week here in the Pacific Northwest, home of the Podcast Cafe : raging wildfires, air full of smoke and ash, then a giant storm on the day of the Full Moon bringing torrential rains and winds strong enough to topple trees and knock out power at the cafe. In the midst of all this elemental power, raw force of nature and dramatic upheaval, we lit some candles, opened the cafe to our neighbors and spun out this nearly-2-hour mix of newish music that has been tickling our earholes here in late Summer. It is, mind you, our 99th episode!

"Rain Return" features a bunch of cafe regulars like Wilco, Beck, Built to Spill, Father John, Beirut, Kurt Vile and Laura Marling, while also bringing is some new friends that we'd love for you to meet, like Courtney Barnett, Yaima, SaQi, Hot Chip, Subaqueous and Pepper Proud. DJ Fundi gets things started off, while DJ Playaduster steps in midway through to blend in some new, groovy sounds from the world of electronica and sacred bass music, before handing back to Fundi to wrap things up and tuck us in. The journey ends with a fitting track, "The Long Awaited Rains....."

Hope y'all enjoy and thanks for dropping by the Podcast Cafe!

Snow Moon in Mossland: new music at the end of winter

10408691_10152844978374819_6749993257676864678_n

Ever so subtly, the seasons are shifting: days grow longer, buds swell on the branch, frogsong reverberates through the evening, and we're not building as many fires for warmth here at the Podcast Cafe. DJ Fundi has gathered up a bushel of very fresh new music and mixed it up, just for
you. This mix was created on the February 4th full moon - the "Snow Moon." Many of these tracks are singles from forthcoming albums we are very much looking forward to, including new music from Modest Mouse (two new tracks bookend this journey), Death Cab and Laura Marling; others are from albums just released, like Father John, Bjork, D'angelo; and finally, the rest are from some of the best albums released in 2014, many of which we featured in our last podcast "'Cause You Had Taste: 2014 Favorites." Enjoy!

Photosynthesis : Into the Dream Dome

photosynthesis-dreamdome

dBMcast#129: Photosynthesis : Into the Dream Dome
Mixed by Kaya Rainface, August 2013

Cross-posted from our sister site Destination Burning Man!
 
Here's some Jedi Goddess Ninja Healer Mermaid Wizard music, inspired by the Photosynthesis Festival held at Hobuck Beach in the far northwestern corner of Washington State July 19-21, 2013 and mixed up by Kaya Rainface for Destination Burning Man. This set evokes the sacred bass celebrations held in the Dream Dome, tapping in to dream states, dream flights, subconscious massages & third eye galaktivations, a space where fantasies morph in to altered realities….let this musical sacrament take you to the places where you access your subliminal sides & express your secret powers!

Jon Hopkins "Sun Harmonics"
Subaqueous "Invoking"
Kaminanda "Liquid Sunrise"
Plantrae "Taiga Bloom"
Drumpyder remixes "Shiva Ntaraj > Bodhi Mandala" (Desert Dwellers)
Aligning Minds "In the Wake of Forever"
Osiris "Immersion > Sole Diver"
Kalpatura Tree "Naked Soul Dub"
Kalya Scintilla "From Day to Night and Back Again"
Elephant Revival "The Raven Song"
Russ Liquid "New Beginnings"

Photosynthesis began with a ritual. An elder from the Makah tribe—we were holding our gathering on their tribal lands, at their invitation—said prayers in his native tongue and then blessed the ground we would dance upon all weekend by sprinkling white puffs of eagle down from his medicine bag. It was an offering that galaktivated the Dream Dome. The line-up of DJs—combined with the visionary artists, VJs, tea servers, dancers and many wild, organic shrines—created a deep vibe that persisted over three long nights of ritual and dancing. The swollen moon waxed in the heavens above, ravens and eagles flew overhead and the hypnotic roar of the Pacific Ocean backdropped everything.

Plantrae playing violin and dropping botanical beats in the Dream Dome


In this mix, Jon Hopkins gives the opening invocation with "Sun Harmonics," appropriate for Photosynthesizers beneath a grey blanket of sea fog and salty mist. The rest of the artists contribute to the musical journey in more or less the order they performed in the Dream Dome over the weekend: amazing contributions from (mostly) West Coast/Pacific Northwest producers Subaqueous, Kaminanda, Plantrae, Drumspyder, Aligning Minds, Osiris, Kalpatura Tree and Kalya Scintilla. Elephant Revival shares a closing prayer with "Raven Song" and, as we drift off from the Dream Dome at dawn, the sounds of Russ Liquid coming from the Mandala Dome carry us home to our tents in the trees….

I should note that Hopkins and Elephant Revival did not play at Photosynthesis, but their opening and closing mantras to the mix are in alignment with the Dream Dome vibe and we're happy to have them!

Photosyn-6
Visionary art in the Dream Dome

The vocals are Makah elders speaking in their indigenous language, including a whaling chant. They are incorporated in Kaya Rainface's mix in the spirit of respect for their culture and gratitude for letting us gather to dance, celebrate, commune and heal on their ancestral land. You'll also hear elements of the land: waves crashing, birds calling, winds blowing…it was an overcast and somewhat chilly weekend, though we were spared rain, and the chill brought us closer together around campfires.

Photosyn-7

Gratitude. We are grateful to the DJs, artists, dancers, temple builders and festival organizers. See you back at Hobuck next year!
