Favorite Fatback Mix: XXXIX

About a year ago, the Fatback Spirits came down from Mount Bacon to grace us with a delicious mix in honor of our 4th Anniversary. While I enjoy each monthly mix for the unique combination of tunes and approaches that each one brings to the table, there was something about this one that caught me in a different way. Something that I couldn’t shake and forced me to keep it on repeat everywhere I went…

What makes it special is that it firmly occupies a space in that exacting middle ground between chill music that often lurks forgettably in the background and the wide open party jam that dominates the space you’re in. It’s a mid-tempo groove train that works anywhere and everywhere, making stops at destinations across the globe and the decades for stations familiar and new, sneaking into your consciousness to get your head and hips moving even before you realize what’s happened. Nowadays, when I need to get my head in the right place to play music for jam-hungry folks or need something cool to go with the city lights as they blur past- this is my go to mix. I know you’ll find a special place for it too.
