GOTCHA COVERED - A NEW MIX FROM LIL'DAVE AND PERSONIFY

October 07, 2013

Two of Philadelphia's finest DJs lil'dave (Illvibe Collective) and Personify (Little Big Things) have joined forces to bring you Gotcha Covered - a genre bending mega-mix of covers songs from the mid-60s to the present. With more than 35 years of DJing and music collecting between them, these fellas dug deep in their collections to pull tracks for Gotcha Covered and spent months mixing, cutting and blending together more than 90 covers spanning Funk, Soul, Jazz, Afrobeat, Latin, Bossa Nova, Boogaloo, Reggae, Steel-Drum Band, Brass Band, R&B and Hip-Hop, to name a few. From the super rare to the under-appreciated and forgotten to the more common cover versions, Gotcha Covered offers up something for the serious digger and the casual listener alike. If you love good music, stop what you're doing, grab a copy of the mix, and prepare to be taken on a tour of some of funkiest and most soulful covers ever laid down. And sorry - no track listing...gotta do your own homework for this one!

 

Gotcha Covered is available for free download here (@soundcloud.com/lildave-personify/gotcha-covered), but if you're the collector type or prefer physical media, you can purchase a limited edition Gotcha Covered CD for $10 by clicking here "Buy Limited Edition CD".

THE JIMI WALLET

November 30, 2020

Designing a wallet seems simple enough. We all need a place to put cash, cards, and an endless stream of receipts. With the JIMI wallet I wanted to provide those essential functions and offer a way to prioritize. You don’t need to get your insurance card out as often as your debit or ID (I hope), but it does need a convenient place. With that in mind, we put two levered pull tabs that offer access to secondary storage spaces and a slip pocket on the back for the cards you use the most.

As a product designer, I spend a lot of time obsessing over what folks might consider mundane. Take keys, for example. There was a period of time in my life where I was splitting my time between Philly and Nashville every month. The number of times I spent looking for my keys for one thing or another, was locked out of my apartment after a trip, or was just generally disorganized as a result of having improper key discipline, are innumerable.

Our Man in Brazil: Interview with Tee Cardaci

The music of Brazil is a universe unto itself. There is an insane amount of it. I inherited a love of Bossa Jazz from my father, and the taste has slowly spread to more dancefloor-friendly Brazilian disco and funk. As a US-based record collector, finding a good and affordable source for Brazilian records has been daunting.
