Redmonk – Bye Bye Babylon

Redmonk – Bye Bye Babylon by Redmonk on Mixcloud

Hell now, what’s – that – SMELL????? Just like cornbread, done – too – WELL!!!!!

Alternatively, this is a mix that hops on a mag-lev train from dub reggae town and ends up having its pre-packed dubstep lunch stolen, which leads to a fit of rage, resulting in chopstick fights with some techno fiends, until, finally, our brave mix disembarks in ravey gravy city. Much more than yr average commute, you could say.

Redmonk – Ed Devane Promo Mix

Redmonk – Ed Devane Promo Mix by Redmonk on Mixcloud

Ed Devane’s music, if it were to be compared to a food, would be lobster with chilli and limes. Granted, the lobster would not be dead, and you will not eat this particluar lobster ever, instead, in a cruel twist of fate, the lobster will force you into a breakdance competition and pinch your ankles as you dance, you’ll be all “hey, quit pinching my ankles”, and then the lobster will stuff chilli in yr ears and squeeze lime juice in yr eyes.

Redmonk – Tonntracha

Redmonk – Tonntracha by Redmonk on Mixcloud

There are occasionally some days when ye just want to drink gallons of tea and wonder what life would be like as a bio-mechanical airship, with feelings, and this would be the soundtrack to such a day, or indeed to such a creature. Although a creature can’t really have a soundtrack, it’d be more like their incidental music or something.

Tracklist:

Colleen – Les Ondes Silencieuses
DJ Spooky – Variation Cybornetique: Rhythmic Pataphysic
Sole – Pure Trash
Meam – Untitled
Porn Sword Tobacco – Charlie Chaplin
Xela – Wet Bones
