52 Song Pick Up #52 - Down & Out of Ivy (Langston Bukowski vs. Active Child)

The final installment of my 52 Song Pick Up series is a mashup of the title song from Langston Bukowski’s 2010 album “Down & Out in Chicago and Los Angeles” and Active Child’s slow burner “Ivy” from 2011’s “You Are All I See.”  Thanks for a great 2012!

52 Song Pick Up #50 - The River of Day (The Ritz vs. cars & trains)

This week I dug back to the title track from my 2008 album with producer Rel as The Ritz, “The Night of Day.”  I combined the song with “The River Lethe” from the fantastic new ep from cars & trains, “We Are All Storms.”  The result is something weird and wonderful.

52 Song Pick Up #48 - Nothin’ But Sunshine Reggae (Langston Bukowski vs. Laid Back vs. Atmosphere)

This week I took the Langston Bukowski song “Nothin’ But Sunshine” and combined it with “Sunshine Reggae” from the Danish ’80s synth-pop group Laid Back and then added Atmosphere’s 2001 gem “Nothing But Sunshine” to the end.  Hope you enjoy!

52 Song Pick Up #33 - Brand New Thing

I’m pretty excited about this week’s track.  It’s another tune from my upcoming release “Progress, We Exalt Thee.”  Once again, it was produced by my frequent collaborator, Earmint.

52 Song Pick Up* #23 - Worldwide (Kid Crate Digger IBMCs remix)


IBMCs (an International hip hop organization) contacted me a few months ago about doing a remix of the Langston Bukowski song “Worldwide” and I sent them the acappella.  A few weeks later I was delighted to receive an email back from them with this fantastic remix by Slovenian producer Kid Crate Digger.  It feels a bit serendipitous that they chose a Slovenian producer from Ljubljana to remix the track, as I am very quite possibly moving to Ljubljana later this year.  If you’re not familiar with the original, it appeared on the collaborative effort that Racecar and I put out in 2010 as Langston Bukowski, “Down and Out in Chicago & Los Angeles”, which can be heard and downloaded for free right here.  You can download this remix right here

52 Song Pick Up* #20 - My Doomsday Machine


The second track to debut from my “Progress, We Exalt Thee” EP, this one still feels like a work in progress (no pun intended), but I wanted to share it with people in hopes of getting some feedback on it.  The premise is simple: This guy built a doomsday machine but is being forced to sell it as part of his divorce settlement and, frustrating him further, the machine has quite elaborate operating instructions, which he is trying to explain to a prospective buyer.  So, you know, we can all relate to that.  Earmint did the beat.  You can download the song for FREE right here
