As I mentioned, I’m removing the FLAC files of Double Dee & Steinski Live from circulation for a while, and putting up (in order) my Rough Mix radio shows that WFMU broadcast in the summer of 2007. The DD&S live set will still be available as a 320k MP3 file.
If you haven’t yet availed yourself of the opportunity to hear our live set, here’s how I hyped it when we put it up in the spring:
A full 60 minutes of our performance in NYC on Jan. 26 & 27 2008, when we opened in front of two sold-out audiences for the DJ Shadow & Cut Chemist Hard Sell Tour.
These recordings are high quality 320k MP3’s, edited down from two performances recorded digitally at our own cute little mixing board, and mastered by the redoubtable Double Dee hisself.
We played on two Mac laptops sunk up with Ableton Live software, augmented by a few little outboard MIDI doodads, nothing too fancy.
As you can see by the tracklisting below, we covered quite a bit of ground in an hour; there’s a lot of new material, there’s classic stuff (Lesson 3, y’all), and we messed around with several versions of tracks from my Nothing To Fear mix CD from a few years back.
The damages: $5.00 US for the MP3 version. We figured that was a lot less per minute than iTunes grabs from you, our quality is much higher, and we’re covering the costs of the e-commerce and the file parking, with a little left over for dinner and a movie. It’s a zipped file, by the way. The artwork is in a free zipped file (just fill in $0 in the cart), help yourself.
And we wouldn’t want you buy it without trying it, so you can grab yourself a free sample we put up right after the performance.
This week, I’m adding another two shows I did for my Rough Mix program last summer on WFMU.
Track listings for these and upcoming shows for sale are available from the archive at WFMU, where you can stream the shows in lo-fi Realplayer files for preview if you’re not immediately motivated to buy from here, you tightwad.
These are hour-long shows featuring good music and my mumbling. I’m asking $1.50/show – a bit more than I originally anticipated charging – because the e-commerce charges and PayPal fees weren’t figured in when I originally announced this. The shows will only be available here for 2 weeks at a time, because I have 17 shows to shuffle through, and one additional program I’ll add at the end from my original 3-year stint on the station back in the early 90’s. You can purchase the shows via the links below.
Now, I’d like you to remember this is my first venture into e-commerce on this site. The links to shopping carts and payment options should work flawlessly. I hope they do, and I’m sure you do, too.
If for some reason this gets buggered up, please don’t start sticking pins in a Steinski doll; send an e-mail to infoATsteinski.com, and sit tight. I’ll make it right if it ain’t, and if you still aren’t satisfied, money back.
In related news, I’m delighted to see a pleasant mention of my retrospective release mentioned in the Sunday, May 11 issue of the NY Times. And a bracing (8.7) review by Nate Patrin at Pitchfork.
