Do you like boom bap beats? Remixed 80s tracks? Pitch-shifted vocals? Well, you’re in luck. On the heels of Steve’s recent mix, I’ve got another installment of the ScissorMix series ready. I guess there’s something about the summertime that makes me get off my ass and finish a mix.

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.

It’s a real shortcoming of Hallmark as a company, that they don’t offer a “Post-Rock brings families together” greeting card. New York’s Phone Home is the second duo of brothers (the awesome Lymbyc Systym is the other) to channel potential angsty rivalry into beautiful musical alchemy
