Us and Us Episode 22


Us & Us: “Digging Is Therapy…”
A Motion Mixtape for Phuture Frequency, transmitting from Mount Vernon, New York, USA.
Supplying musical therapy by way of vinyl, CD, cassette, and MP3.

It never fails: I always end up spending more time with my vinyl once Record Store Day comes and goes. This all-vinyl mix includes some old favorites as well as new additions to the collection. The inclusion of Portishead was unexpectedly timely given their recent Glastonbury performance. I finally get a chance to represent for one of my favorite Talking Heads album cuts, plus the Theo Parrish/Tony Allen collaboration is a current favorite with me right now. In light of the recent passing of soul singer Darondo, I included Tall Black Guy’s re-edit of one of his songs. And Dilla’s shown some love through a Raymond Scott sample origin and a remix of “Waves” from the Donuts album. Not sure who was behind that, but respect is due: it’s b eautiful.

DJ ZAZ Brown – IntroDeucing


I am (DJ) ZAZ Brown. I’m from Washington, D.C. U.S.A. I’m a Renaissance Man with an affinity for dusty vinyl and digital simplicity. My Pops was a serious music lover and it rubbed off. Now you all have to pay for that…

This mix here consists of a few things I found out on the Internets and a couple of cool grooves from a friend or two. If you like these tunes, there are a lot more where they came from. I mostly mix and mash music around the house and then ride out to it.

The Soulection camp has been in heavy rotation lately, with a strong camp of beatmakers and young rappers (Abjo, Waldo, Sango, Atu). Definitely keeping an eye on them. I dropped a gem by my man Dirdy Redzz from my side of town in there as well as rare grooves by Cut La Roc.

Lately, Soundcloud has been home for my ears, but I have an extensive reach in the crates saved up for future shows.

Thanks to PFRadio for giving me a platform to spin my records. Don’t expect the expected…
