our Dropbox is awesome!

We get sent so much music every single day, and we hardly have time to go through it, just by the sheer amount of it. I took some time out to check the latest stuff we got sent and honestly a huge percentage is simply not up my alley, but there is some great music along the mails. And here let me share some it with you. ps to all the artists and promoters, thx for sharing this material with our readers.

1. Lets start with the Soundcloud material

Benjamin Francis Leftwich:

J-Nolan delivers this nice hip hop tune

II) Good old buddy Dj Vadim contacted me just recently, he found out who was behind these YUM YUM parties, lol and he was also attending one in Cologne, when i was there, but on a more (or less) serious note: The mans been busy as always and came up with a new album that he sent me through. The Project is called “The Electric” and we are gonna have a full on feature this week. Here is a tune i selected as a ashort preview:

The Electric – So Now You Know

3. Mixtapes we get sent

We get far too many mixtapes and i noticed this one cause it had a direct relation to us, since two of my tracks are featured on it. Too bad the soundcloud link wasnt shareable, i had to download it, then reupp it plus convert it to make it a bit smaller. too much handling fella, but anyways its a nice mix of tunes that i like and here is what Dj Create wrote: “Hey, I’ve been loving your blog for a while now, and there’s a few tracks on this mix that I originally found through you guys, so have a listen, let me know what you think!”

4. Videos people send us

Some really entertaining material here – enjoy. start it off with a nice hip hop tune, thats way better than the video, but amateurism is the new professionalism, if i dare measure that by the black eyed peas Superbowl gig, lol. this guys reallly on point with this neat tune. ps dude send the mp3 through…

Nostalgia 77’s “Simmerdown” is simply awesome:

YUM YUM Folk Mixtape “Sweet Serenade”

bild-5

This CD was passed out at the last regular YUM YUM in Munich early June, but we only had 50 copies, so they were fast gone. Here is the full mix – i just “mixed” some of my favourite Folk, cover tracks together. (NOTE: you cant really call that mixed since it really is only minimal beatmatching – and these songs DO NOT HAVE BEATS).

Its a tape where everything is supposed to have an accoustic feel, no beat nothing thats demanding or is screaming for attention – to kick back relax and jut do nothing and just be. Enjoy my friends.

All YUM YUM Mixtapes back online

All YUM YUM mixtapes are online, menu > music > mixtapes or check them out as podcasts.

We have calculted how many people have been introduced to the YUM YUM sound via online mixes, Cds and the external dowonload a la zshare. The number is freightening (our last upload on zshare alone had a mad 80.000 combined downloads – and that was on an external wordpress page). An incredible number when you consider that this was one of the many ways we offered them. running strong after such a long time. Great – the YUM YUM set and sound is changing as is everything, to stay ahead of teh game while maintaing the same attitude – and that has always been niceness…

so enjoy the mixes – past and present – enjoy a cool beer and kick back peoples…
