JR #01: NEVER FAIL & PxHxT – Split 7″

Two different bands, the same record, 6 new tracks.

There was no better way to officialy start a record label intended to have no barriers, than with a record that mixes styles, sonorities and messages. NEVER FAIL and PxHxT prove in this record that what matters the most is people, leaving differences on the background and uniting themselves with Juicy to release a threesome record, but with a single idea. Crossover baby.

JUICY RECORDS

Juicy Records begins to leave its mark in 2010. Not to reinvent, nor to divide in worthless categories of genres and aesthetics, but to serve as a platform for projects that transport contents through music.

Music with content is music that transmits something. Values, messages, emotions, stories…all of these have been brought to us over many years by music, and now it’s time to gather some friends and give something back.

It’s official, JUICY RECORDS, my own record label, is out. Check the site for all the relevant info.

You may or may not have heard about it in the last couple of weeks, you may or may not have helped me in some way to put it together, but right now it feels good just to see it take form.

Some people have asked me why am I doing this, why drag my money, my time and my energies on something that can  be a total failure just by looking at the state of things nowadays…my answer: I’m just doing me, I’m just following an old dream and creating something to share with everyone.

All my life I have been inspired by music. Not only by the bands playing on stage, their words, but also by the  people standing on the backstages, working hard to make things happen. I have been on both sides, but most of the time I am just a kid in front of a stage waiting for that burst of sound that makes me feel alive…to all those kids, I bring JUICY RECORDS to life.

It’s kinda my way to say thank-you to hardcore and music in general. It was all a dream…but maybe it is finally coming true.

Hope for Haiti

It’s not much, but it’s what I can give for now.

I decided to give to this site firstly cause I saw it on TV the other night, but also mainly due to the fact that they have everything explained in terms of fund distribution and partnerships.
It was very easy to donate, I even payed with paypal, and I felt my money will go to the right place.

Donate here, or just choose another organization like AMI or Unicef, I will try to donate to them also in the upcoming months.
If you don’t have a credit card, a paypal account or any other way to donate online, get in touch with me and I’ll arrange a donation for you, with receipts and everything.

HOPE FOR HAITI NOW

WALKtheWALK chilling flows

So finally, after more than 4 months in the making, I release my new mixtape.

This new volumes are entitled chilling flows mixtapes, and they consist of a selection of slower songs, stuff to chill out, in a more structured cadence of fade-in/fade-out mixing. But don’t worry, I still got busy on every track, remixing, adding effects, playing with volumes and equalizations…maybe that’s why I didn’t have the patience to finish it until last week.
Also on this volumes I payed a little more attention to the lyrics when choosing the tracks. These specific mixtapes are intended for moments when you are more alone with your thoughts, so I tried to throw in music with a nicer touch on the lyrics and a balance of genres on the voices. Pay attention.

So again I leave you with a mix of different genres, some unpredictable mash ups and, I hope you’ll agree after listening, some good music.

Play time: 21:22 minutes.

Track list:

Dilated Peoples vs. Lupe Fiasco – Marathon/Superstar
Cunnylinguists vs. Fever Ray – Georgia (Remix ft. Killer Mike & Khujo Goodie)/Keep The Streets Empty For Me
Bat For Lashes – Daniel
N.A.S.A. – Way Down (ft. RZA, Barbie Hatch & John Frusciante ) – music video (and also the full song)
Zion I – In The Mornin’ (Caged Bird Part 2)
U-N-I vs. Lupe Fiasco – Halftime/Baba Says Cool For Thought (ft. Iesha Jaco)

New mixtape, and probably the last one you’ll see on this style for a while…

This time I got deeper into re-structuring the tracks and getting crazy at them, so expect something very experimental and coming from a distorted mind. I also accomplished a nice mash up and did a selection on very different genres, as you’ll notice by the track list below.

Thanks to everyone who downloaded the last mixtape, specially the ones who came up to me and shared their opinions and critics. Next up, the chilling flows mixtapes.

Play time: 27:02 minutes.

Track list:

Bot’Ox – Rue de l’Aresnal (Yuksek Remix)
The Dream – Walking on the Moon (ft. Kanye West)

WALKtheWALK future sounds

Bet all you haters didn’t see this one coming! Ahah.

This is a small and very humble experience I’ve been working on since last week…I’ve been mixing music and making very shitty beats ever since I started getting into hip-hop, but this time I wanted to try something more serious and share it with everyone.

So this is the first volume of the future sounds mixtapes.

This specific volumes will be more focused on danceable beats and unstructured remixing, where I do some mood swings, rhythm changes, and throw in stuff for both the fellas and the ladies. And don’t be fooled around by other online mixtapes…when I say mixtape it means it was recorded in a single take, and I individually remixed every track (and no, playing solely with highs and lows doesn’t count as remixing). Be aware, this is no podcast.

Play time: 18:06 minutes.

Track list:

Kid Sister – Pro Nails (Bag Raiders Remix)
Shuttle – Rotten Guts (ft. Cadence Weapon)
Santigold – Shove It (Three 6 Mafia Remix ft. Project Pat)
Death To The Throne – New M.I.A. Song (Remix)
Black Eyed Peas – Boom Boom Pow (Club Version) – be on the lookout for this track…100% dancefloor banger.
Wu-Tang Clan – Stomp (The Bloody Beetroots Remix)

Don’t be too harsh on it, it’s not perfect or very clean…it’s just a small experience  meant to lighten up this upcoming weekend. More volumes and different styles coming soon.
