Splendid Moments 2008

This mellow mix from Pandemonium Jones (of Caps & Jones), is a grower! As DSJ on the Hollerboard said "I know it's underwater hippie folk, but I can't stop listening to it!"


I especially like from track 10 to track 15. Hercules and Love Affair "Blind (Frankie Knuckles Remix)" is the requisite track on virtually every "best of 2008" mix I've heard, but many selectors are having a hard time find a follow-up jam to match it's energy. The way that Jones drops the new Damon Alburn-produced Miriam et Amadou single "Sabali" over an extended outro of "Blind" actually brings up the energy level, but he quickly extinguishes that with the lonely sound of Bon Iver. I might go so far as to call it... splendid.
