Nick Catchdubs + DJ Ayres mix

Aug 22 2007

Ah yes, our friends Catchdubs and Ayres comes through with a mix that’s guaranteed wake you up from snoozing at work or whatever you may be up to. The CD can be picked up here, here or here. Here’s what Ayres had to say about the circumstances surrounding the creation of this dance-rock themed mix:

“A few years ago Milk Bar in San Francisco approached me and Nick about setting up a rotating residency – every month would be me or Nick plus a special guest, so for example Nick and Low-Bee one month, me and Paul Nice the next, Nick and Morse Code the next, and so on. We threw around a few ideas for themes and I came up with Super Friends, and Nick liked it because it meant he could flip comic book covers on the flyers, and he came up with a super hot logo. We went out and DJed the first party and it went well. Milk liked the name and flyer concept so much they decided to make Super Friends a weekly, with resident DJ Vin Sol. Nick continued to design the Super Friends flyers but our monthly residency wasn’t to be. It’s all love though. I’ll be back out at Milk in October for the first time in almost two years to DJ at Morse Code’s CD release party.

Nick and I have been talking about doing a mix CD together for a long time, and when we finally got our shit together, the vibe we agreed on was dance rock records – some new wave, some punk, some newer electro shit. We did it as Super Friends because even though we aren’t as involved in the party as we originally planned to be, we did come up with a hot concept and Vin Sol and Morse Code are our people and were into it. Another person I have to acknowledge is Scott from Ten Deep – he and I were planning on doing a rock mixtape, but we’re both so busy all the time it never came together. I got a few of these records from him when we were planning the Ten Deep mixtape.”
