12 Fresh People. 12 Fresh Tracks. The Exchange.

June 11, 2008

in Music,The Exchange

Today I am happy to introduce to you a weekly podcasting-ish/mixtape collabo project that I am apart of. It’s called The Exchange and it’s composed of me and 11 of the freshest people on the Internets. Every week we pick a theme, submit a track, and put it all together for you and yours.

Who are the 12 Freshest People On The Internets?

Glad you asked. For the record:
Sam
Marcia
Kate
Ouxu
Cye
Eyejammy
Jen
OJ
Liz
Panama
Brandon
George

Why is it called The Exchange?
Because it’s a dope name, and because we are all friends (and/or friends of friends) strewn across the world but we all connect digitally, daily, in many different locations online.

What’s the first edition?
12 Fresh People. 12 Fresh Tracks. The Exchange.
Say My Name.

What’s the tracklist, and who chose what?
Sam | Jazzy Belle (remix) – Outkast feat. Babyface
Marcia | Black Stacey – Saul Williams
Kate | Helen – The Cave Singers
Ouxu | Mary Jane (All Night Long) – Mary J. Blige
Cye | Saigon Meets Just Blaze – Saigon
Eyejammy | Mona Lisa – Slick Rick
Jen | Renee – Lost Boyz
OJ | Makeba – Aceyalone
Liz | Poor Georgie – MC Lyte
Panama | Hey There Delilah – Plain White T’s
Brandon | Adam – Me’Shell Ndegéocello
George | Mona Lisa – Nat King Cole

Where can I cop your freshness?
You can download the zip file here. When Muxtape gets some Ack Rite, we’ll have a link for you there.

ETC.
Big thanks to Marcia and my superfly homegirl Jen for organizing and executing this for everyone.

That’s it for this week. Go forth and listen.
