Due to circumstances beyond my control I wasn't able to make it to SXSW this year. Something came up literally hours before my flight and I had to cancel. It sucks, but shit happens and you gotta keep it moving. Big shout out to Mike 2600, Dr. Delay, Maker, DJ Mel, Cosmo Baker and Joe Eleven, Dori and everyone at Friends of Sound. I'll be there next year no doubt.
Some of you have probably heard about all the multi track files that have been popping up over the last year. I'm not sure who's behind them, but there's been some incredible classics released with all the individual instruments from the master reels ("Superstition", "What's Going On", "No Woman No Cry", etc.).
Here's a few alternate mixes I did yesterday. Nothing major, but it was a good learning experience.
"What's Going On"
"What's Going On (instrumental)"
"Ain't No Mountain High Enough"
