Albuterol – A Mike Simonetti Mix
“K, here’s the backstory. Early in 2008 Mike and Johnny went into the studio to work on stuff, fuck around a little with edits, music etc… Mike brought a box of records into the studio, and they picked out some songs. We came up with an idea to collaborate on a mix of edits. We did a bunch of edits on the fly (no computers, just a few cdjs) and did a mix.
At the time, Mike was staying at Adam and Natties house and as we all know he’s allergic to cats, and he was pretty fucked up the whole time he was there, in a constant state of “almost asthma attacks”…The typical Portland weather (DAMP RAIN) didnt help either. Plus we listened to chopped and screwed hip hop pretty much exclusively (as it is the shit Johnny listens to being from Houston and all).
The mix you hear is the result of some of my time in Portland in early 2008…Pitched down tracks for your enjoyment…Done in a single take, Mike and Johnny knocked out some edits and tried to mix them. Some ofthese are proper “edits”, others are simple extensions ofthe good parts for djing purposes, and a few tracks were perfect the way they were. Shit, some are even edits of other edits!!!
The original tape was all but lost, but i found this on my ipod on the plane and dumped it to my computer. I totally forgot about it. you may have heard some of these versions in a live nightclub setting when I was djing. Small world, right? I am going to post a few edits for you all to download later this week if you want (let us know) … Can you guess which one of these songs on this mix is one of Mike’s favorite disco trax of all time?”
