The main man DJ Knife is back at it yet AGAIN with a new mix, Computer Love. This one hipped me to some shit I was definitely not up on -
In his own words ...
Hey folks! Here's my latest compilation, a 30 minute live-mix of 8-bit, chiptune and videogame inspired music. I recorded this after reading a post by Boston writer Chris Faraone on hip hop blog jtts.com. There's a lot of local love on this mix, from hip hop heavyweights Big Shug and Statik Selektah, to the Cambridge-based 8-bit duo Br1ght Pr1mate, to Somerville-based video game-mashup producer Team-Teamwork. Shout out to Will C for mastering (and having a DVD of The Wizard handy) and Alfredo Rico-D for the artwork. Enjoy! (www.djknife.com).
