Cosmo Baker All Vinyl Mix from The Do Over Miami 2010 Hosted By Aloe Blacc

The Do Over WMC Miami 2010

OKAY! So since I’m playing in Miami this Saturday for the second time in 2 weeks (YOU BETTER BE THERE) I thought I would bring back an oldie but a goodie! Here’s my ALL VINYL set from. It’s my ALL VINYL set recorded at The Do Over in Miami during WMC 2010. Me on the turntables, Aloe Blacc hosting, vibes abundant. Recorded live at BAR in Downtown Miami on Sunday March 28th 2010. All vinyl, a little tipsy off the sangria, wearing the dashiki so you know it’s going down…I’m playing a lot of 45s and also 12″s and it’s funk and R&B and rap and breaks and disco and stuff… It was a truly amazing day!

I was fortunate to have The Do Over’s own Aloe Blacc handle the hosting duties that afternoon, and the DJs that played that day is kind of a line-up made from heaven. (thee) Mike BRich MedinaJeremy SoleDJ MaseoVikter DuplaixDaz-I-KueJeremy Ellis… And I had be difficult and play RECORDS hahah. And this was either the day that ‪#‎Vibes‬ was born or it may have been ‪#‎SharkAttack‬ I am not sure. But it was definitely vibey. I was wearing my dashiki at that. Anyway. SoundCloud took this mix down a long time ago but I just reposted it on Mixcloud and if you’re thinking of some good tunes that you may wanna hear in a sunny backyard BBQ style then this may be it.

Extra shout to one of Miami’s finest Mr. Brown I woke up that morning in Miami and I knew that I wanted to play one of my all-time favorite records, Idris Muhammad “Could Heaven Ever Be Like This” but this is vinyl and I couldn’t just download this song and make it appear in my crate. But I put the word out there and halfway through my set Mr. Brown showed up and handed me off a copy of it on 12″ (and for those who aren’t record nerds and may be unaware of the significance it’s a pretty rare, pretty expensive record.)Anyway, I was happy to end my set by playing that song in full, making me – and a few other people I know – very happy!

Enjoy… and for more Miami love check this out! (Just an an FYI this was up a long time ago but SoundCloud took it down so thanks Mixcloud to the rescue!)

I hope you enjoy this mix, below in the comments! And if you’re in Miami on Saturday check it out at Basement for ‪#‎BoomboxMiami‬

Happy Born Day To Thee Mike B

Today is a great day because a great human being and great DJ was birthed on this day. Big shout out to my brother from another mother Thee Mike B who graced the universe with his presence many moons ago this morning. The world is so much better because you’re here!

Thee Mike B With Hat

Mike is my dude of dudes of course, but on top of that he’s a stellar DJ. Multi-genre purist. Champion of archaic esoteria. And yes, he does things… Forilla! To be honest there’s not a finer human being that I’ve crossed paths with in this short life of mine, a true mensch, and I am so grateful to call him a friend, but also to have heard him rock the turntables, to play alongside him, spent late nights Simpsons watching episodes, in-depth discussions about Daft Punk and 90s indie NYC rap, afternoons at Russian banyas, good late night steaks, having seen multiple continents with him – I think I’ve been on more tropical vacations with him that anyone else in my life (yes, we were just discussing this the other day.)

Cosmo Baker Vs Mike B

My second ever Do Over appearance was on May 17th, 2009. Mike has the honor and tradition of always being one of the DJs for opening day of the season. In 2009 he in invited me to rock alongside him on a 2+ hour 2X4 set which was one of the most fun times I ever had DJing. So here’s that mix for all your enjoyment (streaming via Mixcloud – but also download link in the description) – enjoy!
