Night Shift II  

In the last several years we have seen the San Francisco boogie-funk scene grow exponentially thanks in small part to Beat Electric but most of the credit is due to the excellent weekly Sweater Funk party at Li Po Lounge. That being said, many of the tracks on Night Shift 2 (including an edit by our very own LeBaron) have been covered on Beat Electric at some point and we take that as quite a compliment. Enjoy this exclusive mix by two of SF's best Disc Jockey's, Proof and Renmin, both members of the extended Sweater Funk crew.

Also, do not miss this Sundays installment of Sweater Funk. It's Jon's Birthday and they expect to have some very special guests up from LA.

    This selection & mix are summertime for our ears. Among others, the transition between Say you wanna & Check it out, around 2'44'' and during 4 seconds or so, is just great ! Thanx.

    you probably don't mean to call the mix "Night Shit II," right?

    I would like to apologise to the internet on behalf of Beat Electric's BT Magnum... he did not mean to call this killer mix 'Night Shit'.

    Oh yes indeed, my apologies. Of the four times I wrote Night Shift in this post, once I missed the f. My bad. I am just terribly sorry about this. What a mess.

    It must be a Freudian slip. I never knew you were into copperphilia.

    You didn't know he was into copperphilia? which rock have you been living under. He is notorious for that (night) shit.

    You guys are friggin' hilarious.

  • June 10, 2009 at 10:37 PM  

    It would make sense this question would come up at this hour... But don't you mean coprophilia? I just wanted to make sure I know my shit.

    Yeah I meant to call them out on the fact that they couldn't spell it correctly, but since I could spell it that puts me in a bad light.

    I am a shitty speller and did not want to look it up on my work computer! But it is curious that you know how to spell it. I think you have watched two girls and one cup too many times.

    what a dope blog.....too much good stuff here!

  • June 16, 2009 at 5:29 PM  

    Actually didn't know about "two cups". Thanks... But to be more precise, that's total coprophagia ;) And this mix is still so dope, by the way.

    This mix is exceptional. Thanks!

    This was in heavy rotation during a recent road trip, such a smooth mix. Thanks for sharing!
