By now you all know how I feel about Record Store Day, so I’m not gonna beat a dead horse. I believe that every day is record store day, but this new annual event can not be denied. In fact, besides the exclusive vinyl that comes out of it, there are a lot of cool events, and mixes that have been sprouting up. This year DJ Chorizo Funk and DJ Chicken George hollered at Flea Market Funk with an all vinyl mix they made especially for the occasion. Now I’ll take a decent mix any day, and the fact that it coincided with RSD is just how it goes. Both of these DJs are top notch DJs and diggers who have been at it for some time. This particular mix has some classic bangers you may know, and some newere tunes you should know about. So here’s some goodness from Texas, and really everything is bigger and better in Texas, including this all vinyl mix. Here’s what they had to say about it:
“Special collaboration with Mr. Jazztronica himself, DJ Chicken George, to celebrate Record Store Day 2013.
I went with all 45’s and CG had a mix of 12 inches and 45’s.
Support Vinyl Culture!”-DJ Chorizo Funk
I couldn’t agree more here at Flea Market Funk. When you buy records from your local record shop all year round, they stay in business. Vinyl may have faded but it never went away. Support your local, independent record shop, and you will get music out of it like this mix.
