Wayne&Wax - Boston Smashacre
==> MP3

Wayne's outdone himself again with this sequel to his classic Boston Mashacre mega-mix. Wayne puts it best himself:

“Smash” is not just an attempt to be clever(er), it’s an expression of my desire to explode the very notion of the Boston soundscape I was trying to explore a little over a year ago. Whereas the “Mashacre” offered a meditation on the city’s musical and social life by bringing together some of Boston’s best known acts, regardless how incongruous the juxtaposition, the “Smashacre” presents a series of sonic snapshots intended to unseat stereotypes about the musical and cultural lines drawn around this enduringly provincial yet deeply cosmopolitan town.
Check Wayne's site for much more info, and/or to sign up for his podcast.

DJ RNDM and Robot Kid - Halloween Mashacre Video Reel
==> Quicktime

The boyz edited together this extremely condensed version of their completely off the chain Halloween Mashacre audio/visual mega-mix at Beat Research, Oct 30, 2006.

DJ C mix for Blentwell
==> Blentcast4Pt.1
==> Blentcast4Pt.2

DJ C's Blentcast mix — the fourth in Blentwell’s podcast series — enjoyed nearly 13,000 downloads in its first 2 weeks online. Now the mix is available at his site, in a slightly modified form, as part of the "B" series DJ mixes. Because he had some trouble narrowing down his selection for the mix, it clocks in at nearly 120 mins, so it's been broken it up into two parts. In true genre-blend style the mix is all over the map, filled with freaky dancehall, re-rubbed hip-hop, toxic mashups and much, much more. He also managed to sneak in a bunch of new and unreleased nuggets from various friends around the globe.

DJ Flack : Blue Beats For Longing, 48 Min. DJ Mix
MP3: Download : Stream : Tracklist

One can usually find Flack piling up lots of different genres when he does a mix, but for this one he wanted to get more specific, blending some of his favorite emotional, rainy-day, head-nod, instrumental-hip-hop that plucks heartstrings and gets under the skin. Some are old, some are new, but all are blue. Have a listen with your lover, or when your lover is far away, or when you are just longing for some love.

Been Wrekt : Steps Outside, 54 Min. as heard at beat research, Sep 12, 2005.
MP3: Download : Stream : Tracklist

Curled up in the mess he calls a studio, Been Wrekt drinks cans of malt liquor and misses the nineties. He doesn't long for raves he missed, where he would have been sure to consume vast quantities of ecstacy, mince around with glowsticks, and sing the praises of the P.L.U.R. He just misses the music. In fact, he misses it so much that he sometimes has his friends the Izragga and Localfields over to revel in the banging techno; the old school jungle; the math rock. Just listen to this mix. You'll see what we mean.

DJ C : Boston, 38 Min. Boston-Bounce Mega-Mix
MP3: Download : Stream : Tracklist

This mix is chock full o' unreleased tracks from DJ Flack, Wayne&Wax, DuoTone, Local Fields, and DJ C himself. There's even a special celebrity appearance from our favorite Sri Lankan / UK vocalists.
