The Beat Tape, Volume #1 I am happy to announce that two of my beats have been selected for inclusion on The Beat Tape, Volume #1.

Big thanks to Ivan for putting the effort into soliciting and compiling the material from his readership. And thanks, especially, for picking my stuff for volume one. Congratulation to all the other producers, too.

Halloween Dubstep Mix 2009

lassen smallerI did a pre-Halloween dubstep special on my radio show this week.

I have prepared a trimmed down mix, without the backsells, PSAs and station IDs. Instead of a rambling 2 hour program, I have condensed things to about 40 minutes.

Hope you enjoy it. Tracklisting after the jump.

dj mumbler on-the-air

logomain11Starting this Sunday, I will be hosting a radio show on KANM - "the college station of College Station." It is an AM station, as well as cable FM on Suddenlink Communications. There is a stream available at http://kanm.tamu.edu, which seems like the most normal way to access the show (what is cable FM?).

The show will be free-form.

I will be sharing music I like, and maybe some stuff the station makes me include. The majority of programming on the station is indie rock-centered, so if I do pull from their library I should be able to find some good music. My focus will be dubstep, roots/dub reggae and other musics of the Jamaican diaspora, hip-hop, possibly grime, Bollywood/filmi songs and maybe even some experimental/modern classical music.

my song got played on rinse fm!

I forgot to post this before.

Rinse FMMy dubstep tune "worldwide" got played on DJ Distance's new talent section of his Rinse FM show on 6 May 2008. Unfortunately, he credited me as dj number instead of dj mumbler, but I was excited anyway.

The podcast can be grabbed here:

It seems that rinsefm.blogspot.com has cleared out their archive. Good thing I saved the podcast for myself!
