Podcast 124: Soul Clap's Boston Mix

Late last year, XLR8R commissioned a number of city-themed podcasts to celebrate the launch of our City Guide mobile application. Now that the app has been made available for the Google Nexus One and Motorola Droid, we're continuing the City Guide podcast series to celebrate the sounds of our favorite cities. For this installment, we check in with Boston, one of the oldest cities in the US, albeit not one necessarily known as a hotbed of electronic music. Yet folks like Soul Clap are looking to change that, as DJ veterans Eli Goldstein and Charles Levine not only oversee some of the city's finest parties, they've also been busy taking their soulful, disco-infused brand of techno around the globe, producing all sorts of remixes and re-edits, and dropping the extremely well-received RnB FreE.P. On this mix, they've employed a number of their own concoctions, along with a few of their Beantown favorites, and cooked up a smooth, slow-burning musical journey that does Boston proud.

The podcasts have been fantastic! Love this mix, and glad to see you are continuing with the city-themed mixes!

I have one request though: when you do a podcast for Chicago, please don't commission Flosstradamus or Moneypenny to do it. Get someone who truly represent the city and not just some hipster microcosm.

Keep up the good work!

Absolutely fantastic mix, the catchiest and most memorable thing I've heard in ages. Now I feel like a huge doosh having not caught these guys around Boston.

i don't think you'll find these bootlegs as releases anytime soon. If you want to enjoy the sample:

Mulatu Astatke - "Yekermo Sew"

I have had this mix on repeat since I downloaded it 12 hours ago. There are so many ways to blow this thing apart and discuss how genius of a mix it is. As a hater, I salute you for getting me to shut the f up and swoon swoon swoon. Gorgeous, gorgeous, gorgeous.

And yes, "Man of Wisdom" is definitely the track to beat. Can't wait to get my hands on that one. Thanks AWG for the trainspotting...
