Although I didn’t get a chance to go down to Miami to attend any of the Winter Music Conference parties this year, my homie Pancho, aka DJ Manuvers, kept me updated via his Facebook. Gilles Peterson, ?uestlove and Aloe Blacc were among some of the artists that he saw that made me most jealous. It looked like a hella good time, and I wish I could have been of a part of it. Oh well, there’s always next year…
On that note, Manuvers hooked it up with this dope 80-minute Champion Sound mix. Not quite like being there, but it’s a hell of a consolation prize.
Just in case you don’t already know, Champion Sound is a Miami-based DJ collective that holds a weekly party every Wednesday at the Electric Pickle in Miami. If you’re a Miami resident, or you’re just stopping through on a Wednesday, you should definitely check out Champion Sound for one of the best weekly hip hop/soul/disco/funk nights in town – held down by DJs A-Train, Manuvers, Sire Esq., and Lumin, and featuring the occasional heavyweight guest DJ.
Check the four-part mix, presented in 20-minute sets from each of the Champion Sound DJs, below. Peep the Champion Sound blog for the tracklisting.
