Mad music, mad greatness. Blam:

First is the dude Mike Gaff’s (click his name for his page) facemelting psych mix “The Trip Beyond”. I’m sure you’ve probably heard a gang of mixes if you’ve been on the webs at all in the last five years, but this one goes above and beyond. The dude reworks a lot of stuff, and really lets you know what turntables and records are capable of when put in the right hands. Huge props:

The Trip Beyond.

Second, and third are some semi recent finds of mine. The first disc off of Dizzy Gillespie’s “Bahiana” with a dope break on the first track, and excellent percussion overall. Clearly the trumpet is blazing as well.

In my brief research I discovered that Uakti (pronounced wahk chee) is a Brazilian group that crafted a lot of their own instruments. This is their first album, “Oficina Instrumental.” don’t be fooled by the title. On this album they combine homemade instruments of various tempers with traditional instruments. They later went on to use less and less traditional instruments. they also worked with Phillip Glass.
