LIBRARY MUSIC MIXES - SEPTEMBER UPDATE
I thought I'd continue on with my work collating library music related mixes from around the web. First up we have Gafieira who is now going by the name "Ray Krebbs". He has put together a nice collection of music sourced from Marsellus Wallace's blog entitled "Soundtracks And Library Music (70's)" which features British, French and Italian library gems. Ray has also created a mix called "Big Beat And Library Mix" that takes a journey through the KPM catalogue, highlighting the tracks that have inspired the current generation of hip hop and big beat artists. Both comps are well worth a listen.
I'm not sure how I missed these guys previously but [astral projects] Records have released a number of awesome library themed podcasts which are packed with legendary names like Hawkshaw, Nilovic, Warner, Mansfield, Gray, Bennett, Giordano and many, may more. You can download them all here and be sure to check out more of their "Library Confessions" comps here ( they appear to be listen-only but if you have a search around you might be able to locate some download links ).
Funky Frolic regular blunderspublik has been busy on Mixcloud putting together what he calls the "Metameric Mix: Centipede Radio". Amongst a diverse range of sounds you'll hear pieces by Teddy Lasry, Bernard Estardy, Johnny Hawksworth and Piero Umiliani. You need to sign up to Mixcloud in order to hear the mix but it's well worth it because there's plenty of great music to be found on the site if you're willing to dig around. Take for instance Kid Sundance's fantastic KPM based set here or "Só Pedrada Musical apresenta: Sound Library" by Sopedradamusical that features an all star cast of heavy hitters from the library music scene.
If you have created or know of any other library mixes/podcasts that are available on the internet then leave me a message and I'll include them in my next update. As always, stay funky!
