VTech Presents: A Decade of Mochilla (Part One)
***Download: A Decade of Mochilla (Part One)

VTech is proud to present, A Decade of Mochilla, an epic mixtape, spanning Mochilla’s 10 Years Mixed into one mixtape and shared with you in two parts. This is Part One…

Mochilla is really more than ten years old. It was 1998 when Coleman and I explained to our Mexican producer on the set of the Control Machete video for Ileso that we would only shoot with the equipment that fit in our backpack. It was a Jansport (for clarity!). He replied… “Oh ok, you guys are the Mochila guys, Mochileros”. Of course we loved the word mochilla (the Spanish for backpack) but apparently didn’t know how to spell it thus the two Ls!

In 2001 we released our first project commercially under that name. Keepintime was a photo-essay that under the tutelage of Adam Glickman at Tokion became a short film. He initially thought of it as a piece to put on that new thing – the internet. But when it ended up being 12 minutes long we decided it was too long so we made a VHS to sell – we pressed up a thousand and they flew out the door.

Keepintime: Talking Drums and Whispering Vinyl became a Film Festival favorite and then the calls started. In the ten years since then Mochilla has grown. We have an office now and a micro staff of dedicated, talented people. We have travelled the world, made films about all kinds of music, crossed all kinds of boundaries, worked with people from 5 to 95 years of age and we are having a lot of fun the process. Along the way we have made an archive of photos, videos and audio. It is filled with glorious performances, tough breaks, ambitious harmonies and a lot of soul.

Early in 2011 we will be releasing a two CD Mix of these performances – one live and one live in studio.

As a seasonal gift to our friends at VTech we have decided to sneak you this first 20 minutes of the first volume. This is truly only a sneak peak in to the vast musical vaults of Mochilla. Coleman has sat thru many hours of music, digging in and around multi-tracks of kicks, snares and scratches. It is almost unfair to try to encapsulate all of this wonderful music into 2 CDs, but he did. Next week we will have another 20 minutes from the second CD, the studio sessions.

There’s a lot of memories here. A lot of magic.

Download, enjoy and you know – turn it up!

VTech Presents: Mochilla: 10 Year Anniversary Part 2 (The Studio Sessions)
***Download: Mochilla: 10 Year Anniversary Part 2 (The Studio Sessions)

The response to the first part of this mix has been incredible. Thank you for all the support and retweeting, reposting. Mochilla loves the love. Part two here today for download is stepping the game up and to quote Coleman “I wanted this mix to slap everyone in the face and get them to pay attention.” It is purely rhetorical of course, our version of a slap in the face is the caress of bossa nova, the thump of cumbia or the heart stopping wind sucking gaps of great syncopation. This mix has all of that.

Remember of course these are 20 minute teasers for the full mixes coming in 2011.

Just a quick note on the photo that we used on the cover – I snapped this one at the great “La Marcha” way back in 2001. It was taken in the Zocalo in Mexico City and Maldita Vecindad were performing in solidarity with the EZLN. The kid on his friends shoulders with the El Che shirt embodies all that we wanted Mochilla to be way back in 01 – engaged, excited, energetic and happy. Our brother and design guru Keith Tamashiro flipped it into our first logo and Stephen Serato has reflipped it into our 10 year mix cover.

This will warm your ears, brighten your heart and remind you of the strength of good music, download, hit play and you know – turn it up…

Thanks for all your support and happy holidays,

production junction.

while digging on the web today i ran into images that took me back to 2007…
i absolutely loved working this shoot. big ups to retna and juxtapoz!
hidden trac(k) memories*

Although the Original Mural was only supposed to stay up for one night due to location regulations, Retna flipped the OG type and aged it quite beautifully for this Juxtapoz spread (dusk remained intact until the location was remodeled). Peep the original mural by Augustine Kofie and Retna for Hidden Trac(k) Vol.1 (c) 2007:

Words on the left read: “Now of course I want peace on the streets- But realistically painting perfect pictures ain’t never worked- My misery was so deep.” ~2Pac —-The names in gold read: “DJ Dusk, Verse, Ayer, Kev” Fallen Soldiers.~Kofie

Tons of love to The Captan Family!

++willy wonka original psychedelic boat trip!

This was/is absolutely one of the most fascinating parts of the
Original Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory (1971) mainly due to it’s rhythmic, poetic and psychedelic feel…

-WF

“There’s no earthly way of knowing which direction we are going. There’s no knowing where we’re rowing or which way the river’s flowing. Is it raining? Is it snowing? Is a hurricane a-blowing? Not a speck of light is showing, so the danger must be growing. Are the fires of hell a-glowing? Is the grisly reaper mowing? Yes, the danger must be growing ’cause the rowers keep on rowing, and they’re certainly not showing any signs that they are slowing. AAAGGHHH!!!”

-Willy Wonka

Her El Michels Affair

There is no doubt that there are flowers oscillating wildly with joy from finally picking such a relaxing, fresh yet strangely nostalgic album, I didn’t realize how much I missed coming home with such a great sense of urgency to touch needle to wax, to unravel the packaging and dive in. Setting aside the mp3 + detaching from the matrix + the mean screen (and yet raving and ranting on it). Nonetheless, it’s the simple things – Instrumentals for the mental. Loving this feeling – this physical connection with what keeps my heart happily beating.
