mix was originally put together for some homies who had been dropping
ill DJ mixes on us all winter. It was packaged up later so we could
hit people off at the Winter Music Conference in Miami and it took
off from there. It's made up half from beats we've been making in
the Subatomic lab and half from music I've been listening to during
Code Orange alert, because don't we all need to relax and let our
minds go for a New York minute or two?
mix includes five new right-out-of-the-lab Subatomic tracks that
have barely even touched human ears and are otherwise unavailable.
On top of that there is some Scientifik DJ cut and scratch remix
business. Preview some unmixed individual songs like the still smoking
Lounge Dub and Process
Of Illumination. Also in the mix are versions of Chocolate
Factory (used in the Ming FS remix), Reconnected,
the Why I Smoke
Bidi remix, and others you've never heard before.
whole mix has a chillout vibe with lots of bass aimed to counteract
the Code Orange alert stress we've been under. The Subatomic tracks
are all on the smooth tip and the non-Subatomic tracks consist of
some serious dub reggae, laid back hip hop and downtempo vibes.
The non-Subatomic tracks in the mix are all from serious cats who
deserve major props. In other words, you should consider having
at least one album by each of those other artists on the playlist
if you don't already.
> When Should I Listen to Code Orange Relaxation Techniques ?
far listeners have confirmed that the following activities and situations
are enhanced, improved or in some cases made near perfect when accompanied
by Code Orange Relaxation Techniques: Sitting on front steps watching
the sunset while smoking (particularly during track 3), making love
to your better half, chilling Sunday morning while recovering from
Saturday night, winding down before passing out Saturday night,
underground on a stalled subway delayed by another 'police investigation
underway at Union Square', sipping a stiff drink with a slice of
fruit hanging off the glass, working late into the night under fluorescent
lighting, anywhere where you are exposed to sunshine. These days,
the question is really more when not listen. (Feel free to get back
to us with suggestions)
This Mix Came About >
quote Run DMC, times have been 'rough and tough like leather' in
New York City. Some people thought of it as a surreal golden age
until the internet bubble burst, planes fell out of the sky, people
died, lost jobs, economy plummeted, Jam Master Jay was senselessly
murdered, and people are left broke, without work, and living in
media hyped fear of everything from anthrax to suicidal dirty bombers.
of our government's new homeland security initiative was to implement
a color coded terror alert scheme for the country. In case you don't
know, Code Red is the highest alert and bascially means we are under
attack. Code Orange is the next level down. New York has been at
that level since September 11th, 2001.
