ScissorMix Vol. 11: Summer Break

…And just in time for the upcoming NYC heat wave, it’s a new installment of the ScissorMix series designed to make you get up and move!

I wanted to get this out in time for The 4th of July but there’s a new tiny person in my life and, as a result, some of my priorities have been shifted. And it turns out that messing around with a mixtape is not considered an essential fatherly duty.

But better late than never, right? This mix is pretty much all hip hop, reggae, soul edits, afrofunk and other goodness that sounds great coming out of a boombox. Lots of familiar tracks in new packaging. It’s the soundtrack to the BBQ I haven’t had a chance to attend. So get out there, cook some meats, drink some beers, and pump these tunes for me.
