ISO50 Exclusive – Slow Hands Mix
Recently I posted a debut track by Slow Hands which is coming out on Brooklyn’s Wolf+Lamb label, you may know Ryan from New York’s DJ duo Worst Friends which our Tom Croose is the other half of. I asked Ryan to focus on something eclectic and something for designers and creatives to listen to while working instead of something a little more dance driven and Ryan really delivered by using everything from Slum Village to The Steve Miller Band to DFA’s Woolfy.
Once you get to the Project Sandro track you’ll end up in a slow and steady groove — it slays actually — I’ve been waiting for something like this for awhile and the ending movie sample is pretty sweet.
Look for the next couple of mixes to be non-genre specific and melodic and hopefully something that exposes the diversity in electronic/rock/etc music.
The iPhone photo was taken while Ryan was asleep and then Scott came in and made it proper.

I honestly never would have thought that this Alice in Wonderland was worth listening to…but I was wrong.
Love the mix so far.

Looks like ol’ Ryan fell asleep at the Serato controller with that accordion & xylophone rendition of La Isla Bonita.
I mean, really? Accordion? La Isla Bonita? Then xylophones?
The rest of the mix is smokin’ – too bad he had to ruin it with those 10 minutes of bad choices.

does anybody else have this crackling all the way through? Sounds pretty bad on my end. I’m talking about the stream version (haven’t downloaded it yet)

I just wanted to let anyone interested know that i messed up the track listing that was sent to Jakub to be posted . . . and that there is a track between Isabella and Belonging, it’s “Drilling” by Trus’me. I know, i know, it’s in Croose’s mix, i should have checked that beforehand, but what can i say? He has impeccable taste!
I just wanted to make sure the talents of Trus’me did not go unrecognized!

Really awesome… made my day at work… and it also made my day flow a bit more creatively compared to other creativity-massacring, corporateness-infested days… Thanks!

Amazing mix. Ryan really hit the spot with making a mix that is easy to listen to while working. Interesting song selection as well.

Lovin’ the mix! Especially the Sade edit. Did you do it?
Esteban says:July 7, 2009 at 11:36 am
Man! This totally resembles to a cover design I did last year.
Check it out:
I guess music style may be somewhat disimilar, though.
I am downloading the mixes now. Let’s see…
