DJ Pain is back: exclusive new mix to download!

Hermanos del Pulpo!

Its with a strange sense of pride that I’ve watched DJ Pain establish himself as one of the finest purveyors of mixes out there, not least I guess because I kinda had the pleasure of boosting his reach over on my own blog when I hosted his “The Day The Earth Stood Still” mix. Word clearly spread quick on that one, as within 6 months it was soaring well past the 10,000 downloads mark and getting chatted about all over the damn place. A year later, Pain delivered his second work for our ears, Road To Oblivion, and once again it proved this guy can deliver the goods and then some.

So, imagine my delight when the man himself got back in touch to say he’d completed a new mix alongside friend and fellow DJ Chaps One. From here I’ll let Pain take up the story:

We started a crew back in early 2000 and released some Mix’s and were playing 2×4 gig’s across southern california at the time for many west coast hip hop shows. Opening for the likes of the Shape Shifters, Visionaries, Sage Francis, 2Mex, Busdriver just to name a few. Our last Mix was in 2003 and since then with families getting larger and life it self moving around, things got busy for both of us. We sat down late last year and decided it’s high time we team up on some Live projects and some Mix’s again. I was very pleased with this, we always had this chemistry in our Mix’s and Live Shows that you just cant get from one person alone on a single set of deck’s, especially @ live shows. Our Crew name is a bit of a story in it self, we are called “Hermanos Del Pulpo” or in english “Brothers Of The Octopus”. The concept of the crew and our projects is basically heavily seated in sci fi moods and we carry this as a theme in all our projects. Hence, probably you’ll hark back to some of the sci fi themed stuff I do in my own solo projects and why The Day The Earth… Mix had the quirky monster octopus intro…

We entitled this Mix “HDP” and as you can guess the sci fi theme is pumped thru out… I will let the Mix speak for itself,..

Just wanted to give a brief synopsis on the relationship of the crew and how we got started…

I am proud of this Mix on a few different levels. On the unreleased tip… The Mix features 2 New Exclusive beats from Elektro 4 and 1 track by DJ Exile. DJ Egadz aka Kidwithout Radio and EVS gave us a new unreleased song each aswell…

Also a major shout out to King Megatrip is in order, awhile back shortly after “Road To Oblivion” I started to talk to him quite often thru email and when I told him about this project. He sent me a couple choice samples for the Mix. I didnt quite give him the whole run down of the project and with the vague theme idea I ran passed him, he sent over some great material he thought wouldn’t benefit me too much. Ha ha, he has not heard this yet, I hope he likes that we used some of it, along with our own samples gathered.

Well I hope you enjoy the self titled “HDP” Mix. I feel like this Mix has a little something for everyone and there will be alot more projects coming out from the “Hermanos Del Pulpo” as well as my own solo projects… As “Hermanos Del Pulpo” DJ Chaps One and I have already started on two other Mix’s aswell so hopefully the goal is to get one or two of those out by fall….

As ever, this mix is wall-to-wall killer, with the kind of excellent narrative themes and sick beats we’ve come to know and love from this skilled Californian. As he mentions above, there are also tasty exclusives by way of some new Elektro4 beats and a brand new track from DJ Exile. So, get your download on and enjoy HDP – god knows we are and we’ve had it for some 4 weeks now!
