We're back with another volume to our Silent Selector mix series. This time our featured selector is Manofue Wurdz out of Oceanside, CA. Listen to this volume's mix and read more about this volume's selector.
We recently had an opportunity to collaborate with the talented Alice Koswara. Click on the pick to read more about it!!
We've been talking about this project since last December and it's finally here!! The trio (consisting of KidDragon, Manwell and QSTN) have put in some major work on this and the end result is straight fire!! The idea for the project came from 3 of them playing heavy funk sets one day and thought it would be dope to put together a mix to celebrate the 2 turntablists (KD & Manwell) joining the cr3w.
Download the mix (click on the link below) or pickup the limited run of cassettes (click on the photo) that's now available. Don't sleep!!
This is the 7th installment in my mix series as the title implies and is a "Labor of Love" featuring selections from both my vinyl collection and newer remixes and digital only tracks. Given that LOVE in all of it's forms isn't reserved for only 'ONE DAY' but ALL-WAYS! These mixes focus in on songs pertaining to love, but spans the gamut of Love. Love for God, people, a significant other, the love for dance, as well as the heartache of love lost and getting over it. I began this series for the LOVE of music and the love of sharing that music, both old, new and the unheard.

New beautiful jazz piece by our guy Kwesi.
I am a designer living in New York and I have been in love with Jazz for as long as I can remember. When I began making music, thought I loved the 808’s and electronic synths, I always wanted a little more fulfillment. Through a combination of a very tough year and frustration, I eventually stopped making music completely; until I found myself in a park one day listening to Jazz musicians.
For the first time in a while, I fell in love with the freedom of music. Making what the heart wanted to hear and feel rather than what I believe fit the mainstream Soundcloud persona. As a result, I deleted most of my synths and made a deal with myself to stay true to what I deemed fit for my emotional story.
“This, Always” is a tribute to music and love. It is a promise that I will do my best to continue tugging onto my heart stings to feel what needs to be felt rather than holding back; to let the heart lead me on unexpected journeys of memorable passion and beyond.
I hope you will follow my journey of discovery, and hope you will be inspired just as I was in that park.
