Gentle Daps XV: Guest Mix by Beat Bachs

SUBSCRIBE TO ANTS PODCAST: iTUNES, RSS, SOUNDCLOUD, MIXCLOUD, TUMBLR
Beat Bachs is a Fayetteville-based DJ and jack of all trades. He's been active in radio for 16 years and counting with a few different projects, namely the film industry talkshow The Drive-in Speakerbox. That show got its start as a spotlight on film scores (and still incorporates film score material between talk segments). Beat Bachs, who goes by The Boom Operator on the show, has been amassing a gigantic collection of scores over the past decade for the show. He was kind enough to pour over this entire archive and pick out the quietest, dreamiest pieces he could find for Gentle Daps XV.

For more of Beat Bachs' projects, check out Art Amiss, a local art collective of which he's the president.

From the Vaults #3: Guest Mix by DJ EJ

COVER PHOTO BY SABINE SCHMIDT  |  SUBSCRIBE TO ANTS PODCAST: iTUNES, RSS, SOUNDCLOUD, MIXCLOUD, TUMBLR
ANTS Podcast mostly works the "deep finds" angle, but the time has come for a healthy dose of hit worship with a guest episode from DJ EJ, a longtime Fayetteville music scene staple. He was a station manager at KXUA, where he hosted Wheels of Steel, a show that spotlit local DJs. The show ended a few years back but lives on in the form of a party series, which has become one of EJ's best known projects. He's currently the music director for Art Amiss, a local organization dedicated to art, fashion and music in Arkansas. Check out the compilations he's curated here.

I'm very happy to have him contribute this mix of unabashed soft rock essentials for FTV. He's calling this mix "Dad's Yacht Rock," and he was kind enough to share some thoughts on the direction he took:

"'Yacht rock,' a pejorative term coined by Dayton Daily News popular music critic Dave Larsen in 1990 to describe an upcoming Jimmy Buffett concert in Cincinnati, and popularized by the 2005 to 2010 Channel 101 online video series of the same name, refers to the soft rock, nautically themed smooth music format prevalent throughout the '70s and into the mid '80s. This mix explores its overlap with another made up '70s genre, 'dad rock,' a reference to the soft, romantic music your dad used to set the mood while trying to put the moves on your mom." — DJ EJ

Cool Shoes Fayettevilleflyer design by Shawn Lee
It's Friday the 13th, and the amazingly on-point monthly Little Rock party Cool Shoes has come to Fayetteville! I've been pumping Cool Shoes here on AiMT for years now, so I'm very happy to help bring it to my home town. Tonight we've got Cool Shoes residents Wolf-E-Wolf and Cam Holifield along with myself and local DJ/promoter extraordinaire Beat Bachs. The Cool Shoes crew will be bringing down tons of extra sound, lights, and visuals. Hope to see you there.

Enjoy Wolf-E-Wolf's remix of Ronald Jenkees as a teaser for tonight:

NOLA bounce set tonight in Fayetteville



Just a quick heads up that I'll be spinning alongside Shortfuze and Bizar tonight at Smoke & Barrel for Shortfuze's Double Tough monthly, and I'll be doing an all New Orleans bounce set from around 11 until midnight. AND I'll be giving out download codes for an accompanying mix. I will only make the mix available to Double Tough attendees (at least for the time being). So I hope to see you out! If I don't, you'll get no bounce murzick :\

I'm very stoked about this. I've got SO MANY tracks to rip through, and I'll be transitioning very quickly, so don't let your ears blink.

Baby Armie, Mandelhog and DJ E-Yo at JR's tomorrow



Just a quick heads up that I'll be DJing alongside Mandelhog (Messy Sparkles' DJ alias) and The Concrete Schoolyard's DJ E-Yo. It will be a highly eclectic night. No telling what we'll end up playing.

Here are a couple of goodies in the meantime, including an unfinished remix for Architecture in Helsinki I got commissioned to do back in '07.

Messy Sparkles - "Thank God"

Fayetteville expat/director Mike Anderson aims to direct a short film for Javelin



Mike Anderson, a Fayetteville director who relocated to Brooklyn last year, has started a Kickstarter campaign with Javelin to raise money for a Western-themed companion short film to the band's new 10-inch, Canyon Candy, out on Luaka Bop. From the looks of the promo (which starts at 1:40), we can expect more of Mike's trademark colorful greenscreen antics, only this time in fully fleshed-out short film form. This is exciting because Mike only has super short promo bits available for viewing over on his Vimeo page, so it will be nice to see something lengthier.

Javelin has $7,456 in pledges out of their goal of $9,500. And with 24 days left, it looks like they'll make it. Pledge here, and read more over at Altered Zones.

Eliot Lipp in Fayetteville Tonight

Eliot Lipp

Just a quick heads up that Eliot Lipp, a longtime key player in L.A.'s beat scene, will be at George's tonight. I'm not exactly sure how so many Fayetteville kids are up on Mr. Lipp, but I'm guessing the local festival circuit has played a big role. If you can brave the weather, try to come out and encourage local promoters to book more acts like this. We're in dire need of it.

Lipp recently dropped an album with Leo 123 under the name Dark Party but hasn't recorded much solo work lately. Here's a cut from his '09 LP, Peace Love Weed 3D:

Eliot Lipp - "Sand Castle"

Tanner Beam - The Lost Cosmonauts

Tanner Beam - The Lost Cosmonautsimage by Alex Tomlinson
Fayetteville expat and top-level Traktor effects Dungeon Master Tanner Beam just hit me up with this excellent spacey set. It starts out ambient and downtempo and gradually nestles cozily into a classy seesawing between Balearic disco and smoothed-out minimal tech-house. As a bonus, Tanner threw one of his own tracks (under his Fashionista guise) into the mix. Not mad at all.

Tanner recently relocated to D.C., and if you live there, you should totally book him.

DOWNLOAD INSTRUCTIONS: Leave Mr. Beam a timed comment on The Lost Cosmonauts on SoundCloud, and he'll hit you back with a 320 kBps direct download link.

Track list after the jump.
