Not to be confused with Lupe Fiasco’s Production Company, Crossfaded Bacon is proud to present the triumphant return of the 1st & 15th Mix Series (now entitled the 1st & 15th Mixcast!) tomorrow March 1st with DJ Last Word’s fantastic new-rap-&-original-samples mixtape Somewhere Between Fast Food and Vegan Volume 2 (snippets of which can be heard here and here).

To prep for the mixtape and the return of the series, we’ve gone ahead and uploaded all 22 previous installments of the Mix Series on our Mixcloud page where you can stream each of the mixes in all their glory. If you’re not the streaming type, feel free to download any and all of the mixes RIGHT HERE as well. There’s literally something for everyone as you can see from the diverse discography below.

Wale ft Gucci & Reef *Pretty Girls* Emynd Remix

Wale ft Gucci Mane and Reef the Lost Cauze “Pretty Girls (Emynd Go-Go Remix)”  by  Emynd

Taken straight from the Do It To It Volume 3 (Click for the awesome artwork!!) that was unveiled at the release party at SXSW, here’s my remix of Wale’s great song with Gucci Mane “Pretty Girls.” I guess the OG is technically on some Go-Go ish, but I made a remix with some more accentuated Go-Go Drums and got my dude Reef the Lost Cauze to kick a new verse.

I’m really happy with it. Hope yall like it! You can purchase this remix and the rest of the CD HERE! It’s great!

Mike 2600 & Prince Klassen *Kamchruouch*

I’ll let Mike 2600 hit you with them words:

Prince Klassen and I have been really getting into ’60s and ’70s psychdedelic rock and funk from Cambodia and Thailand. We cut up some of our favorite songs from this setting and put together this mix called Kamchruoch (the Khmer word for “fireworks”).

You can download the mix for free and read more about the music at

If you download the mix, we ask that you consider making a donation to Tiny Toones, a non-profit organization started by Cambodian-American deportee Tuy “KK” Sobil which provides a safe place for at-risk Cambodian youth to learn Enligh, Khmer, music, b-boying, art, drug prevention and harm reduction, and more.

Mike 2600 *READY TO ROCK EP* Available Now!

Today marks the release date of another fantastic release on our lil’ ol’ label here at Crossfaded Bacon HQ. This time we’re taking it back to them Old School Disco Party Breaks with Mike 2600’s *READY TO ROCK EP*. Mike himself created the hilarious and fun Promo video above of the title track on the EP, and I think it gives you a great indication of what this EP is all about with its Old School party vibes and editing. As you’ll notice quickly, each of the original songs on *Ready To Rock* are very clearly inspired by the innovative cut & paste mixes of Double Dee & Steinski, the Disco Rap aesthetic embodied by labels like West End and Enjoy Records, the spaced-out disco sounds of Cloud One, and even the raw sounds of ’60s garage and psych rock. If you didn’t already know, Mike 2600 is already a well known figure amongst some of the world’s biggest DJs (organizing the annual DO IT TO IT party at SXSW and helps compile the accompanying vinyl EP featuring remixes from DJs like Tittsworth, Dave Nada from Nadastrom, Crossfaded Bacon’s Emynd, and Bird Peterson) this is his first official solo release. Accompanied by exclusive remixes from CFB boys Emynd and Scott Matelic, we’re really proud to introduce Mike 2600 to the rest of the world with another CFB release that will sound fresh whether played today, tomorrow, next year, or next decade. Oh and don’t forget to follow him on Twitter.

As a gift to y’all today, you can download Mike’s original *Gigolo Rhythm* and Scott Matelic’s Remix below. Feel free to blog these boys or hit us with comments!

Mike 2600 Blends

New Crossfaded Bacon Records signing Mike 2600 killing it with a couple of really dope tracks over on the Yeeeah Buddy blog. While Mike and I make wildly different stuff, I’m really into his un-trendy style. I like to think that a lot of the stuff I personally make is likable and useful without bending towards whatever trendy aesthetic is currently in season on the blogs, and Mike’s stuff has that exact same feel. I guess the word I’m looking for is “timeless.” This stuff doesn’t sound like it was made in 2009, 1999, or 1989. It just sounds right, and I’m a big fan of music that isn’t concerned with its timeliness (shout out to folks like Eli Escobar and the Nacho Lovers who I feel are a couple other prime examples of this same artistic ethos). Anyway, enjoy the tracks and check back here for more info on Mike 2600’s forthcoming release (with remixes by Emynd and Scott Matelic)!
