I want to share beautiful things with you today.
Time again to share some music.
I found DJ Dimsa back in 2011 when I started to discover podcasts. Warren Ellis wrote about podcasts of music and started his own SPEKTRMODULE, which I have written about here
T-shirt #75. I found DJ Dimsa's music on Mix DJ, which originally allowed for the downloading of mixes, a practice that was discontinued right after I found the mixes, which is why I only have seven files loaded on my system. I present two of those mixes here (Smoke Screen and Impulse) as DJ Dimsa has loaded them both to You Tube and Mix Cloud.
These are among my favorite mixes by DJ Dimsa, but I have loaded several others, both older favorites and newer favorites, including his brand new mix DEEP LIPS, just posted Tuesday March 1st.
Many of the images he uses for the cover art for the mixes derive from a European erotic aesthetic, that I can appreciate while I also understand some of the sexist trappings of the oeuvre. But yeah, I like looking at the sexy women. I am wired that way. It's instinct that is fueled by years of looking at sexy women. Coded and supported by behavior. The double whammy.
My wife would call this my "porno music" though this kind of jazz, down-tempo, house, funk, chill, lounge sound is not so much the atmosphere of porno movies, which, honestly, don't have a lot of music or production values from what I understand.
Anyway, I found that I loved these mixes that DJ Dimsa put together. Some more than others. Some times I am not in the mood for the relentless beats of most house music. But when I am in the mood, this is kind of easy listening that fills my space with lovely sound but does not draw too much of my attention.
More specifically, DJ Dimsa described his music as "Jazz Funk, Jazzy House, Deep House, Nu Jazz and Smooth Jazz."
Dimsa listed Lonnie Liston Smith as a huge inspiration. Check this out.
Share the beauty.
"A good downtempo mix is like a progressive relaxation. It's not about one single song, but rather a series of perfectly ordered and mixed tracks that evoke the right mood. The DJ has to go deeper and deeper and deeper before really getting into the listener's head." - from QUORA INTERVIEW
One of the artists he endorsed (and played) on a recent mix is known as RA:DN3 and these Italian musicians also have a SOUND CLOUD channel.

I copied the above set of links right off the You Tube page. I am reposting two and then another I found that Dimsa did not list.

DAMMIT YOU TUBE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
It seems that You Tube is going to annoy the fucking shit out of me with ads until I pony up the $9.99 a month for YouTubeRed. I like You Tube. I even LOVE You Tube, that would be fair to say. Do I want to another $10/month that I shell out to avoid advertising?
You Tube just interrupted the DJ Dimsa mix I was listening to midway through with an ad.
Is that worth $120 a year to avoid?
I have a feeling that more and more content will move over into You Tube Red. I have not yet tried to launch a video to have it to tell me that the content is only available on You Tube Red, but I feel it is only a matter of time before I encounter that issue.
