Looking Back :: (iN)Sect Records Celebrates A Decade With House Shoes Mix ‘The First 10 Years Of The iN’

If you’re already down with (iN)Sect Records, then you know about the impressive list of achievements and accomplishments, including (but not limited to) : the wildly successful Exploded Drawing events; a roster split between extremely creative, forward-thinking locals and legendary talent from around the states; a long history of projects released digitally, on cassette and on vinyl; and, most importantly, a decade strong in the game.  In order to celebrate this hallmark, the label tapped roster member House Shoes to do a mix dedicated to the label, and House Shoes went above and beyond for The First 10 Years Of The iN.  If one ever had doubts about the variety of sounds, diversity of roster, or sheer volume of talent within the (iN)Sect Records camp, this mix should soundly put those doubts to rest.  It’s free to download, free to stream, and free to share, so do all of that, and be there for 20 years, 30 years and so on!

Decadent Decade :: House Shoes Puts Together ‘The First 10 Years Of The iN’ Mix For (iN)Sect Radio #27

From the digital desk of (iN)Sect Records

(iN)Sect Records out of Austin, TX, are currently celebrating their 13th year of putting out experimental/hip-hop/punk rock/noise music in the form of vinyl, Flexi-disc, frisbee, chip clips, shirts and cassettes.  House Shoes is a Detroit-born producer and DJ, who now lives in Los Angeles and runs the acclaimed record label, Street Corner Music. He has been a friend and supporter of the label for the last decade.  We asked House Shoes if he would be down to mix some songs from the first 10 years of our releases (2008-2018). He turned in an absolute beast of mix to mark a chapter in our history.  This mix of over 30 songs from our catalog includes songs by: J-1 tHE DEER, Ras G, House Shoes, aLive, Sir Froderick, Chanes, SelfSays, Guilty Simpson, Butcher Bear, Kinder, Muamin Collective and more. Check the tracklist and head over to insectrecords.org/podcast to listen and DL the mix for free.”

Making New Friends :: Man of The Downtrodden

The name Man of The Downtrodden keeps popping up all around in things I’m involved with.  First, I noticed him (and really enjoyed his contribution) on the Sole Glow Collective Compilation Volume One.  Then, he played Exploded Drawing IX (with well know DJ and Detroit representer House Shoes) and rocked it proper like.

After finding out he was mutual friends with my main man Collin Williams, I decided it was time to do some musical research.  Guess who wins out on this one… not sure?  Everyone!  This is some dope music.

30Beats30Days really got my attention.  Check it out for yourself:
