Vermont Farmfest Transmissions 1&2


Obscured by the name Dub Collision is Mr. Collision’s predecessor, Hoon. My mixology began in the setting of vinyl tracks to cassettes. This endeavor didn’t come about until I was first rejoined with my collection of long players. This happened in Vermont, in the year after I moved there (1975) It happened in steps as my Cleveland pals, Barney and Fran and others ferried chunks of the collection in the back seats of their cars. Then, with the collection finally at hand, I bought a cassette deck.

Roll forward a little less than forty years and there was Marlon, on a visit to Cleveland, asking me if I still made mixes. During my Vermont chapter I compiled 900+ mix tapes over 15 years, and spread ’em around.

A few months later I have reason to deliver a little bit of my musical soul to the members of that very Vermont karass. Heck, it was the least I could do to repay them for bringing to me my record collection and make my soul present at the tribal reunion in the beautiful Champlain Valley in the people’s Republic of Vermont.

Dub Collision 2.0: Back To the Porch Again

Dub Collision 2.0 encompasses my own efforts to compile enjoyable mixes for public consumption, as I have been doing–on and off and on–since I first got a cassette player way back in 1976. I am, as it stands right now, not going to provide downloads. The new mixes will exist in the cloud, starting with the cloud provided by Grooveshark.

Grooveshark allows me to compile mixes from their resources and embed the resulting playlist here. Other similar providers, when I find ’em, may also join the Dub Collision 2.0 toolbox. I’m not sure how it will work with my more outre interests, such as jazz.

For now, rock and pop music mixes will comprise of seven tracks and be approximately 30 minutes long. This allows the savvy user to listen to the mix in a tab and go about their other business in the browser. I term this model of mixology: the sevens. I will use a four selection model, the fours, for other genres.

Grooveshark does suck in one obvious respect: it does not provide an app to stream audio playlists from an html5 player or other equivalent technology to an IOS app and to a ‘non-jailbroken’ IOS device; iPod, iPhone, iPad. Supposedly they have been working on it for two years–however it seems Grooveshark are Android homeboys.

In another aspect, Grooveshark does not guarantee predictable fidelity, but the entire audio universe is rolling down that hill for over ten years!

By all means, feel free to tweet, Facebook, G+, or otherwise promote any mixes you feel are worthy.

This first mix is just a bunch of old hippie music, or music for old hippies. Hiya! Make love, not war.

Dub Collision 1.0 and R.I.P.

Dub Collision mixes The covers for the 30 Dub Collision mixes posted on this blog from 2008-2011.

Dub Collision 1.0 was the iteration of compiling and mixing and rendering “sets” that the internet made possible once I centered my musical interests here on the nogutsnoglory studios blog. Most of the mixes were turned into mp3 versions and uploaded to file lockers, such as Rapidshare. But, the file locker ecology has been imploding for several years, and this includes the deletion of all my uploads. These were deleted when I ended my premium accounts.

Because all the download links for the three years of Dub Collision mixes located at various file lockers have been deleted by the hosts, such as Rapidshare, the Dub Collision 1.0 era has ended. I’ve moved the page of mixes to this post and now it will drift off the front page. I didn’t necessarily make copies of the mp3 mixes–I hope you did–and so I’m okay with their being gone. Obviously the files are only gone as much as anything can come to the internet and then, later, disappear.

The Dub Collision 2.0 beta era now begins.

Dub Collision mix: Common Folk Song (jazz traditions 2011)

3 Christian McBride & Russell Malone – Sister Rosa 6:37
4 Joe Lovano Us Five – Passport 5:27

11 Erena Terakubo f. Kenny Barron – Oriental Folksong 6:13
12 Captain Black Big Band – Here’s The Captain 9:05

So many great mainstream records came out in 2011. This mix can only showcase only a handful of the supreme moments. Consider the veterans Burton and Jarrett; each released new milestones in their illustrious discography. Then juxtapose Erena Terakubo, who is 19 years old, and, after playing alto saxophone for ten years, strikes me as having set a new standard for precocity. Put it this way: she’s mastered the alto styles of Charlie Parker and Jackie McLean and Joe Henderson.

There is so much improv being woven between musics not having much to do with the narrow term ‘jazz’ that I’ve come to understand jazz proper has recently entered its next developmental phase. The gist of it is young and youngish improvisors from every continent are no longer beholden to the conventions of classicism or the avant-garde.

So it is the term ‘fusion’ has become vital again as a marker of unfussy experiments and shaking up of genre conventions.

Imagine what a very long slow sweep of a wide brush laden with several shades of paint looks like. This mix captures a sweep of slow music, a favorite genre known–otherwise–by different labels. Yet, as you have the opportunity to hear in this bringing together of some of my favorite brush strokes from recordings of the last year or so, it all could be termed sound painting too.

Moving backwards through jazz’s recorded history, as I did while hiking into the past from the contemporary epiphany evoked by Miles Davis in 1973, I came to the golden bebop moment very early in my investigation.

Prior to this my friend and mentor Dooz had played for me something from Charlie Parker’s Jazz at Massey Hall, and this didn’t register. However, when I heard Manteca by Dizzy Gillespie, available then on a RCA Vintage volume, I was blown away.

1973 was on the cusp of the flood of jazz reissues on LP which would come tumbling my way over the next ten years. At the time, most of the classic bebop sides recorded between 1945-1955 were not readily available. Still, some of the Parker Dials and live broadcasts were obtainable on small, low-end, labels. Then, soon enough, the dam burst and I could dive into the great catalogs of Dial, Savoy, Prestige, Blue Note, Musicraft and the like.

This meant a big swim in the glorious artistry of Gillespie, Parker, Powell, Monk, Jackson, Moody, Gray, McGhee, Navarro, Gordon, and many more–each of whom offered up golden moments in the birth of a jazz revolution. It was Dizzy Gillespie that rocked my world the hardest; my jazz radio show on WRMC-fm from 1976-1986 was named Groovin’ High in recognition of the glorious side from 1945.

In the history of music has there ever been such an intense upwelling of virtuosity across the spectrum of individual instruments?

This compilation doesn’t range beyond well-known masterpieces. If you’ve never received your bebop baptism, here you go.

Because my musical world triangulates, as I would tell you, The Byrds, Thelonious Monk, and Pauline Oliveros–crazy, I know–here’s a mix that speaks for itself.

Although I was partly deflected off the folk-rock course for a long period, the time during which I sank my ears into all sorts of different waters, the fact is folk and country rock was my original ‘home.’ This compilation brings together some prime exemplars from roughly the period 1967-1974. Favorite tunes here and music for DFH like me.
