Late Night Mix #3

Jacksonville FL's DJ NickFRESH is my interwebs friend. I have never met the dude in person, but we have bonded over music via this blog. We like a lot of the same stuff - he has eclectic taste like me. Years ago he asked me to post Doot Doot by Freur, a relatively obscure '80s track. I was happy to oblige and the rest is interwebs friendship history. He makes cool little mini mixes you can listen to on his YouTube page. He also runs a Soul Train fan group. You can follow him on Twitter. If you're ever in Jacksonville and he's spinning be sure to check it out. Here is his latest "Late Night Mix - #3" for your audio happiness...

The Rakes have decided to call it quits. A statement from the band reads:

"The Rakes have always been very adamant and proud of the fact that we give 100% to every gig we've ever played. If we can't give it everything then we won't do it. That was the rule we set ourselves from day one.

After much deliberation we have come to the shared conclusion that we can't give it 100% anymore and regret to announce that The Rakes are calling it a day. We are sorry to let down all the people who were coming to see us on the UK & US tours. Writing your own obituary is a surreal thing to do but we want to give particular thanks to our much-loved fans, all the great people we've worked with over the years, our management and loyal record label. We feel privileged to have had the opportunity to write music together and perform around the world. Genuinely, thanks for the good times.... That was one hell of a party! But now, we really must get some sleep."


BUMMER.

Dude... NickFRESH is the best! Listening to this mix only tells a tiny part of the story. His knowledge is Encyclopedic and his dance moves are acrobatic. You have to check him out live. I haven't seen him spin in over a year. Maybe I should fly him out to San Francisco...

This mix from NickFRESH is quite soothing and funky. Makes up for the bad news of the Rakes breaking up. Thanks Michael!
