Things I've collected over the years or acquired on mixtapes and comps or gathered from the internet, the library, my parents' house, let's say all over the place. I make no claims to "discovering" or "owning" anything and neither do you. It's whatever I feel like playing that week. Things that may or may not be familiar. Who knows. Past weeks here too. Just click on this for the previous 18.
