This weekend people will gather right outside of Hughes Springs, Texas for Atrium Obscurum’s annual 3 days, 2-night music and art festival at Armadillo Acres. This is the same venue used for Myschievia. The theme for this event is to honor the dead. Many of us have experienced death in 2016 in very personal ways so this is our way of celebrating them with this Norse mythology story.
Einherjar (Old Norse einherjar = ‘those who fight alone’ or ‘those who belong to an army’) is the term used in Northern mythology for the warriors slain in battle, who are brought to Valhalla by the Valkyries after their deaths. There they spend their days in battle, but in the evenings they are all alive again and drink the mead which flows from the udder of the goat Heiðrún and is offered to them by the Valkyries. They eat the meat from the constantly renewed boar Sæhrímnir. There is sufficient for everyone. – Nordic Names

I have been excited about this release since it was first mentioned back at that meeting before Christmas! I have listened to this entire compilation three times today already and a steady stream of feels have come rushing to me reminds me why I love this type of music, then I hooked up my studio speakers and was reminded me why I even time, money, energy and effort every year into park celebrations and Atrium Obscurum’s 3 day/2 night festival in East Texas. FOR. THIS.
So Luis Hernandez summoned the most bad ass producers from planet Earth asked if they wanted to contribute to this is what they did.
The date for the annual festival this year is June 12, 13 & 14. Upcoming event will be an Aries celebration for Uhm and Jamie Ray in Fort Worth, TX at Trinity Park on March 22, 2015. Look for the Shelter House pavilion that where the set up is, you know the hill everyone ride down on cardboard.
Look forward to spending time on psychedelic dance floors with everyone SOON! “Like” Atrium Obscrum on Facebook because AO LOVES you!
Starts off with trap – which is slow but then goes on to moombaton – my favorite shit EVER. Yes. Bro Safari was in Dallas last night. Free download.
There are diva vocals – check. Cross over flavors – check. Bass heavy – check. Free download – better now!
To end this list of stuff that needs to be on your mp3 player is this mixtape. Downloaded it to have forever!
Hunter Vaughan Live @ Sandaga 813 Dallas, TX
I’ve followed Hunter on Soundcloud for a while & heard his remixes so this mix REALLY is different from the rest of what is uploaded there. It’s absolutely beautiful & soulful. So refreshing to hear something new from an unsuspecting place. Describing phrase: hyper sensual lazer love. He performs on 9/20/12 at the Lizard Lounge.
I’m a mega fan of John Tejada so I was all over this the SECOND it came up on my feed. It’s minimal. It’s the musica ting ting. Last time John Tejada was in Dallas was for the Sounds Like.. event in February. Yeah it’s about SOMEBODY brought his back!
Sorry not a free download but it’s stupid if I didn’t show some love for this! Would you believe that Mala is the the Godfather of (what is now known in the States as) dubstep by listening to this? Far cry from tear out dubstep, no? Oh this is just beautiful. It’s a track from his album In Cuba – it’s on iTunes now.
AHH! I’m was so stoked about this since Stephan Jacobs doesn’t have many mixes available online. This is a majority of his own tracks, so wonderful! I’m disappointed that I’ll be missing his set at Art Outside next month this year but I’ve already heard him so I highly recommend that you do.
Just like the title of this mix reads, this is creepy. Darker, industrial licked mix. He’ll be performing in Austin September 29th Holy Mountain a dj set. I dig this type of stuff, dark but danceable. Most importantly it goes somewhere. I can’t stress enough how mixes shouldn’t be the same level the entire way through, different levels of energy here.There is also an interview to go with this mix, it’s in Dutch (What a wonderful time to learn a new language!) so you’ll have to translate it in your browser.
Free download is over H E R E C L I C K F O R D O W N L O A D Timeless beats of the universe! I’ve already listened to this 3 times – at least. Beats Antique. Is. The. Shit. A hybrid of musical styles for those who enjoyed playing the piano classically in middle school then performed in the marching band in high school who ended up turning into rave royalty then growing up to be music snobs who write about music. Or something like that. Something for EVERYTHING. Perfect timing as Beats Antique is in Dallas THIS FRIDAY at Trees!
Yesterday was a “let’s have a park party” weather. This next Sunday there will be a park party from Masdelux! In the meantime, download this mix to hold you over. This mix has bad ass songs like Lemar 50/50. Hi! This is song was my theme song in 2004 because I was going through a break up & he was all blabbing his mouth – ANYWAYS the point is there are some real gems in here that are going to rehash the past through hip hop & R&B. Sweet memories.
Wonderful weather this weekend in Dallas. Fall is coming. Hope you all have a great week filled with cute puppies! xoxox
The free download is available on the Spin website. Ah, this a great drum & bass mix that is perfect for the sophisticated ear, soul filled highs with dance able basslines. Perfect. This mix was created for Spin mag as a celebration of Makoto’s new album release. You can get that on the R&R Records website.
Here is a mix from 2015, as bonus.

Check out the weekly podcast from Special Housin Association. The entire website is awesome as well, from interviews to reviews & news for house music. It’s perfect.
Live At It’ll Do (Dallas) 6/30/12
Two hours. You’d really be silly to NOT download this while it is available online. If you live in Dallas AND love house music AND have never been to It’ll Do – you better get your ass out there. It is a disco dance hall heaven. The only thing that sucks is that it isn’t Saturday every night. Bless Eli Escobar for uploading this mix. It wasn’t directly recorded from the mixer so you can hear people reminding him to “fuck it up DJ!” Classic!!
Thank You Jay Dee, Act 3, mixed by J Rocc
J Dilla day is a real thing.
All Out of Line (Mix)
This mix goes everywhere, just glad to hear something that has various tempos. If you run different tempos, this is awesome for a run. It’s a great party-hype-dance mix, wish there was a track listing. Oh well, a girl can’t have it all some days. (PS AJ Bitner has a tumblr account with sick tracks, follow follow.
