Quick, before the kids start crying! I made a new mix!

Life has been non-stop neon-green poopy diapers and spitup-covered shoulders for the last few weeks, and my prior life as a rave kid getting by on little to no sleep has definitely come in handy, but the one thing I really miss is music. Loud, wake-the-neighbors, head-nodding hands-in-the-air music. I have to be on point 24 hours a day, so even rocking headphones isn't really in the cards right now, as I still need to hear them breathing and catch them fussing before they wake their mother up. These kids got us on Shawshank lockdown right now, and after two weeks, even a sip of pruno or extra socks from commissary is a treat.

So when the in-laws came by a few days ago, my little baby jail wardens allowed me some time in the yard, and I arranged for a conjugal visit with my mixer and some new breaks tracks. No practicing, no thoughtful track selection, hell, I didn't even get to listen to a few of these tracks first, just turned the mixer and the Kaoss pad on, hit "record," and jacked up the volume. 60 minutes of bass at high volumes (preferably in a res-i-dent-ial area). All in all it came out pretty well, I'd love a do-over on a couple mixes, but for a blind run it was aiight.

As usual, for the most up to the minute mixes from the La MoDa brethren, follow the instructions at the top right of this page and sign up for our podcasts. The jailbreak siren is sounding, I better get back before roll call or it's extra hours of latrine duty for me.
