Recently I worked on a collaboration tape with my friends over at Partly which also happens to be one of my favorite stores in Portland.
It's tiny. It's a great spot to not only get items from Martina Thornhill Ceramics (she also has her studio in the space and owns the store along with her partner Drew Steadham), but also great records, tapes, new and used leftist (as well as arts and culture) books and zines and a bunch of other great stuff for living.
For my side I used an editing program for the first time to transition the tracks without silences, layer tracks and add effects. You'll find samples from the satanic panic era transitioning into a freestyle rap from a porch in Greenville, SC with a ballpoint pen and fist smacking the wooden bannister for the kick and snare to an acoustic cover of "What You Want" by My Bloody Valentine and plenty of other stuff covering a handful of sounds. The highlight to me is a Macka B rap about the benefits of broccoli layered over a Marcus Fischer track.
For those far away and those who don't have a cassette player here are links to each side if you want to check them out.
Drew and I have another mix idea cooking that I am looking forward to putting together. I hope you enjoy and stay tuned!
