Last episode we re-aired a mix from Tripmaster Monk, originally released for the Knocksteady podcast. It's called 'Ninja Funk and Gangaster Ballads - an Ode to the Brotherland'. We got great feedback on the episode, we're glad you enjoyed it!

This episode we sat down with Tripmaster Monk to talk about music, production, mixing, record collecting and lots more.

A few years ago, Tripmaster Monk released a mix on the Knocksteady podcast called 'Ninja Funk and Gangaster Ballads - an Ode to the Brotherland'. The mix is chock full of Japanese tracks, Japanese breaks and drum breaks from other sources. We think this mix is dope and Tripmaster Monk has graciously allowed us to re-post here. Hope you enjoy!

Next episode (164) we'll talk with Tripmaster Monk on this mix, record collecting, beatmaking and lots more.

This episode, Keith puts together an Eclectic Mixtape featuring music from a modern soul band with a $452 recording budget, a somewhat-known 70s influence on metal bands, a dope record fusing flute and funk and more.

The backstory behind this episode is simple enough. Sama was hanging out with motion_correct, listening to some records and jamming, when suddenly one track snapped to the foreground. The song sounded grungy and epic by all means, and it instantly became clear we needed to discuss this on the podcast. So the next day, Sama treks back to motion_correct’s house to record a quick chat about this 4-side compilation album featuring some incredible West Coast Nuggets.

While you’re here, make sure to check out motion_correct’s eclectic international mix called Culture Shock (episode 155 of TVE)!

A few months ago Keith and Sama recorded an episode of The Vinyl Exam in Vamp, the Oakland record store. Unfortunately the audio was lost to time (and computer glitches), but after running into Tracy at a local record swap in LA they talked records and set up this conversation between Keith and Tracy where they talk records, music and Vamp's 5th anniversary.

NOTE: This episode is posting Thursday, March 1 instead of Monday, March 5 to allow those in the Bay Area to check out some of the Vamp-related events happening this weekend.

This episode, Keith takes a look at what a Rock and Roll Hall of Fame band did during a period that saw their popularity slipping and their die-hard fans turn away. While the band repeatedly made decisions that alienated fans, they did so with an eye on taking musical chances and the result is easily the most interesting music of their career.

take it with you


Iphone_trans Listening to podcasts on your mobile devices is extremely convenient -- and it's what makes the podcasting medium so powerful.

You can take your favorite shows and mixes with you anywhere, but to do so requires some quick and simple steps.

Let's walk you through that process together.
step 1:


Click the "Subscribe With iTunes" link in the page's sidebar:

Subscribe_with_itunes

This will require that you have the iTunes software on your computer.

(You can download iTunes here.)
step 2:
Itunes_ss

Now that you've subscribed to the podcast on iTunes, the feed will display in your "Podcasts" section on the left navigation bar.

Click there and you'll see the show displayed in the iTunes browser.

You can "get all" to download all available episodes or just individual episodes.
step 3:


Plug your mobile device (iPhone, iPad, iPod) into your computer with the Dock Connector cable, and click the device in iTunes's left navigation bar.

Itunes_ss2

Once you have your device highlighted, click "Podcasts" in the top navigation bar and sync the podcasts you want on your device. Click "apply" and the episodes you have downloaded on your iTunes software will sync with your device.
that's it!

The beauty of this process is that now, every new episode of your subscribed podcasts will automatically sync to your device every time you plug it in and open iTunes. You can now take your favorite shows with you everywhere you go.

Enjoy!
done!
