Episode 003 from Kris Guilty. Super excited to have Kris throw together this gem for us. He's a dope DJ and real selector who blew me away when I saw him for the first time up in Montreal at Le Bleury-bar à Vinyle. Here's some background on Kris and some words from the man himself on the mix:
Kris Guilty is a born and raised Montrealer, a city that has been a silent partner to New York in all it's musical and cultural activities for the last century. Jazz, Disco, House and their paralleled social implications... dig deeper and you will find a little Montreal.
Growing up with the relics of his dads Disco years around the house Kris quickly took to being the musical guide of family, community, and school parties. The graffiti years of early adolescence and onward led him to the under ground of the city, a world that primarily existed at night and in to the early morning. The energy of the loft/warehouse would blend with the familiarity of a house party to create his process. That being said, DJing was not enough, so the ritual of party organization was inevitable. Over the last 10 years Kris has been involved with many projects, some more known than others, organizing jams around the city in the DIY spirit and in clubs. He has played with and been behind bringing a wide range of artists... this list will one day be compiled but for now he is still on the move.
'This mix brings together some early influences, local funk, dusty 45 finds, international bits (that UK sound!), and my most recent discipline of finding the best song on a mediocre album and making it shine in a mix. All of these records with the exception of 1 or 2 are easy to find, affordable, and will be funky for another three decades.'
