San Francisco garage-psych

Search on, man

Best known for his work on Flying Lotus' album 'Cosmogramma', bassist Stephen Bruner's debut 'Golden Age of The Apokalips' has the neo-spacefunk feel of the 70's albums of George Duke, Donald Byrd, and Stanley Clarke mixed with the modern grittiness of thick drums and psychedelic electronics.

Cut Chemist - Sound of the Police (2010)

A live dj set (performed with one turntable and a loop pedal) of Cut Chemist opening for Mulatu Astatke in Ethiopia in 2009. An Ethiopian funk/jazz mix with a handful of other genres spliced in there. My favorite mix from 2010. If you find a tracklist let me know.
