Avery & Johnson Lee :: A Little Bit Higher (live on 4 turntables)

March 23rd, 2011 No comments

It's been 11 years to the month since this infamous 4 turntable live mix.  I thought it was definitely due for a repost or in DJ style a re-rewind...In fact there's history behind this recording from March of 2000. This mix was the very first collaboration between Avery & Johnson. After realizing what great musical chemistry they had between them, they soon formed a partnership which you now know as District Soul. So to say it was an important mix in lives of both us would be an understatement.

The playlist below is a little more complicated than a typical one. What we did was represent what songs were being played during each track of the original CD that we distributed. Obviously since this is a continuous audio file format you won't have the advantage of using track numbers but it should be good enough as a general guide.

Johnson Lee :: Free Form 27.3

March 18th, 2011 No comments

Like I was mention in a previous post, I have no idea what's with the decimal number system when it comes to the Free Form series.  What I do know is that the number 2, 3, and 7 are quite significant to Mr. Lee so you figure it out from there.  I was quite happy when he dropped this mix in my hands a couple years ago.  It had been quite some time since I heard him rock out his patented house style.  When I listen to this mix, it reminds me of when I first started DJing with Johnson back in 2000.  It's got that uptempo energy that makes you just want to be on that dark dance floor with lights strobing on and off as you dance 'til the wee hours of the morning.  Two thumbs up for Johnson on this one.

Johnson Lee :: Free Form 24 "A Weekend With Gus"

March 18th, 2011 No comments

It's about that time for OTBP to drop the next Free Form jewel.  'A Weekend With Gus' has to mean that you are in store for non-stop audible bliss.  Gus is definitely a DC legend and to have a mix involving Gus guarantees a real experience.  (I know that doesn't help many of you out there that don't know the legend of Gus but you'll have to trust me on this one.)  I just got done listening to this mix for the first time in about 5 years.  Have to say that I was blown away.  I really wish I had the track titles so I could give my take on the journey blow by blow...but alas it's a Free Form mix and that means the playlist is all in the mind of the listener.  What I can tell you is that there's some serious sampling, djing, and a vibe that brings you through a cloud of jazz, lounge, experimental, and who knows what I should call it.  Download it now.

Johnson Lee :: Free Form 23.7 "Live At 18th Street Lounge"

March 12th, 2011 No comments

This edition of the Free Form series is a very special one indeed.  On March 3rd, 2005 Johnson spun live at the famous 18th Street Lounge in DC.  As far as I know, this is the only live set captured in the Free Form series.  It's been a while since I last listened to this fabulous mix of lounge and downtempo music.  From beginning to end, it's the type of music that you could just imagine a dimly lit, smokey lounge with people chillin' out with their heads nodding.  Unfortunately for me, I wasn't in the U.S. when he played live.  So now you can go back in time via OTBP to recapture the fun.
