We are in the thick of Summer and for me its hard not to feel the urge to travel. Maybe its a hold over from trips at the completion of the school year, or the 100 plus degree heat here in Philadelphia, but I just can’t sit still. Here is a mix for you traveling folks, or those of you with an itch to scratch. JEEPNEY Sounds mixed by Canada’s own DJ PUMP.
-THE BAG MESSENGER
“Jeepneys are the most popular means of public transportation in the Philippines. They were originally made from US military jeeps left over from WWII and are known for their flamboyant decoration and crowded seating. They have become a symbol of Philippine culture”
“Here’s a mix i made in 2007 for Jeepney clothing in Seattle & California area.. I think the original zshare file expired with about 80,000+ downloads (wow!)... Anyway, this was my tribute to late great J Dilla months after he passed. In this mix, you’ll hear 80 mins of real hip hop joints i was feeling at the time mixed with some funk, neo soul and some more rare gems. There’s also a J Dilla tribute mix somewhere in the middle.. Enjoy.”- DJ PUMP
It’s been a busy year for Jimpster, with his Soul Spectral and This Thing (with Rich Medina) EP’s both being amongst the best received and highest selling releases of his to date. He has also added his touch to The Sunburst Band, Soichi Terada, Feiertag, Baiana System, The Secret and Retromigration in the form of some massive remixes to boot, as well as having just released an Anthology spanning 4 vinyl.
