Epiphany School - DJ /Rupture mixes
January 17, 2013 7:53 PM   Subscribe

DJ /rupture has made "8+ hours of mixes" available for free download (with a donate button).

He provides a "suggested listening order", with notes, but I'd suggest if you're not familiar with /rupture to start with Uproot. (pitchfork review)

Thanks for this! Some of the mixes are on Discogs, with tracklists if you'd like such things.

This is a cruel amount of music. Thank goodness I already have Gold Teeth Thief and Minesweeper Suite.

Uproot remains one of my favorite mixes of all time. The first 15 minutes or so are just bliss.

Well, I know what I'm going to be listening to for the next approximately forever.

Wow, super good.
Question: I can stream them, but how do I download them?

Mr. Me - Right click, click "Save Link As ... "

And this is great. Will probably donate, cause hey, it's the guy who made Uproot.

Thanks Rustic.
Done and donated.

Anybody remember a /rupture cassette mixtape with a girl sitting on a chair on the cover that included "Walk With Your Friends" by Warlockz, circa 2000? THAT WAS MY JAM

I'm listening to the archive of his weekly show "Mudd Up" on WFMU.org right now.

He has two modes it seems, sets that are "interesting" in some way and sets that sound great. I like both, but especially that second kind.

The Bidoun Sessions mix he did with Mutamassik is how I was first introduced to him, still my favorite. Other than that, Uproot and Gold Teeth Thief, these are new to me. Thanks!

Here's a video of DJ /rupture at my conference, describing how he's constantly aware of the audience.

Awesome DJ, awesome thinker.

Can anyone ID the song that starts around 03:50 on the Change the Mood mix with a woman singing a chorus "I wish I knew what to say"?

/rupture can!

"that's @DANISHIVERS 'up' - we played a party in Tijuana together and she destroyed it #changethemood"
