MIX: Coachella 2010

April 13th, 2010 by Chris


Sing it with me now…

“It’s the most wonderful time… of the year!”

YEAH!!! Only a few days now until the Floor Models once again invade the desert. Still no gig at the show this year (funny, that) so instead we keep the tradition of a Coachella 2010 mix going! All the tracks involve someone associated with the show… somehow. So, get this joint lit on the road trip down to the show, and we’ll see ya in the Sahara :)

MIX: All Wet

January 27th, 2010 by Chris


Living on the West Coast, weather-wise, usually ain’t no thang. But the last week was a soggy one. Nothing to do except throw down some dub. And techno. Yes, two of our favorite genres have been fused into a sublime one hour journey. Kinda like a PB&J at 130bpm. Dig in.

MIX: Macerated

July 23rd, 2009 by Chris

It’s no secret that the Floor Models enjoy their bevies. All sorts of bevies are enjoyed, but a few rise to the top: namely scotch and wine. This mix in front of you is dedicated to the latter. It debuted on the excellent wine blog saignée, run by our good friend (and fan!) Cory Cartwright. He is just finishing up an epic month of posts on the topic of natural wine. Dig deep and you may even find a few wine geek posts by yours truly.

Enough! Onto the music. Keeping with the vino theme, the concept for Macerated is the journey that grapes takes in the vat during fermentation. This process is called maceration and it’s where the magic happens, especially for natural wine. It is very dark in the vats, but also very active, so musically expect a healthy dose of dark techno sprinkled with new wave and ambient.

This, our latest mix, is also available for steaming on the top of the sidebar. And you can find the rest of our mixes right here.
