A Shocking Kickoff

Hello, is this internet thing on?… Mic check, one, two…

Greetz and such. After lying dormant for nearly three years, and with one false start about a year ago, kidkameleon.com is finally up and running and looks like a website. It’ll be the home for links to my mixes, links to other peoples tracks and mixes, links to other great people in the music world and beyond, and general musings on the state of music today. Often this will include thoughts on musical styles I’m into at the moment, such as dubstep/grime, ragga-jungle, drumfunk jungle, dancehall, dub, gospel, and, as always, Steely Dan. But, hey, everything’s fair game.

To get things started propa, here’s a mix of mine for the Shockout label that’s been a couple months in the making and is finally done and online.

Shockout is:

“..a Tigerbeat6 sublabel focused on crossbreeding dance and electronic music with raw, influential elements of ragga, jungle, dub and soundsystem culture. Inspired by the leftfield dancehall of Ward 21, Vybez Kartel, Lenky, Remarc, Congo Natty and Bad Company’s best releases, the excitement of DJ Rupture’s early ragga / IDM / breakcore mashups, and Razor X (the seminal pairing of Kevin Martin’s Bug project and the Rootsman’s Third Eye label), Shockout specializes in strictly original music and exclusive vocals, hot, vital electronic producers and maverick MCs.”

Heres the website.

The mix Kid606 asked me to do eventually sprawled to over 94 minutes and so I broke it into two sections, Absolutely Shocking and Even More Shocking. Please, download, distribute, Limewire, Kazaa, SoulSeek, bittorrent, whatever the mix to as many people as possible. That’s how good music spreads.

The track listing is below, and I’ve tried to include some links to some artists and labels who donated tracks for the mix or were otherwise encouraging. (Track list is in the form of Artist – Track [Mix] (Label) )

    just finished listening to the first half– this mix kills. nice job. props for the red balloons & "murder dem"…

  • kidkameleon says:

    Cheers to all! Thanks for the encouraging words.

    I’m glad someone likes the 99 redballoons … I played that as the last song of a set for some hardcore breakcore headz in Leip(move)zig, and one guy was
    about ready to tear me limb from limb. BUT, the bartender loved it, and that’s always the
    ultimate test, cause they hear so much crap.

    Word, thanks for posting this mix. I’m stoked to know that there’s a label out there bringing all these disparate pieces together…I thought I was the only freak who would rock Shy FX AND Nena. Big up dis ya sound!

  • kidkameleon says:

    Shockout’s the bomb, what can I say? And we freaks are few and far between. Get in touch (e-mail at the top of the site). Where you at?

  • John says:

    top selection mate. We need more eclecticism in DJing in the UK at the moment.
