“Drunk In A Smokey Bar Drinking An Imperial Porter Mix” (by Lasswell)
The first mix in our Curratorial Mix Series - from ccMixter admin/developer/mentor Victor Stone:
For all the activism in the Open Music movement, nothing pushes the ball forward like brilliant, evocative music. While there is plenty of underground music of all sub-genres at ccMixter, there is also a growing collection of mainstream, above-ground producers who understand the value of sharing as a means of boosting their own creativity along with their exposure.
This playlist represents a sampler of "straight" pop and R&B done by producers who have an ear for the popular without sacrificing artistry.
