“PLAY SOMETHING GOOD! BORING!”
Mash-up DJs can really be ten a penny nowadays – any branch of Urban Outfitters will confirm that and most people are certain that Soulwax invented the genre.
JAGUAR SKILLS stands out something rotten. This guy is so cheeky, man. Steve Guttenberg and Mario just got turned away from the club while Jag’s crashed his spaceship and is getting shrunk to the size of a … crazy shit. Each mix is a musical narrative and should be framed and put on your wall, or whatever the musical equivalent is. The fact that each is themed just spoils you, as your brain tries to keep up with where Jag’s just left, speeding ahead like the DeLorean…
Jag’s even self-critical, making swipes from forums and/or clubs part of the fun and the destroying the fuck out of them.
The ethics of hip hop provide the foundation for each mixtape, irrelevent of whether breaks, blips or guitars provide the icing on each space cake.
OH – the voice artist behind LION-O from out of Thundercats lends his feline larynx to each episode. ‘Nuff said? Get over to Jaguar Skills’ blog and get downloading!
