SIX mixes to give you a taste of what Rev Shines is all about.
BEST OF 2016 BY REV SHINES
2016 was quite the year. We lost so many of our heroes, said goodbye to the Obama years and watched an "internet troll" get elected as POTUS.
At the same time, some amazing new music emerged from all of that stress and drama...So much great music that I would need to make numerous volumes of mixtapes to truly rep what this year has been sonically. Thus, I put together this mix using joints from some of my favorite releases from the past year. Happy New Year!
RARE 80's funk & SOUL
An all vinyl collection of rare 80's Funk and Soul joints selected and mixed by DJ Rev. Shines. Includes tracks from Twilight, Michael Baker, Carol Carol Williams, Dolette McDonald and Gazeebo. Originally aired as an exclusive on Modern Class Radio (Washington D.C.) in December 2016.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY STEVIE WONDER
This mix originally aired on Mr. Wonder's 65th birthday, giving Shines a great excuse to pay homage to one of the world's most important human beings. Instead of playing all his hits and tunes you know and already love, we've prepared a healthy dose of songs written or produced by Stevie for fellow artists, in addition to cool covers of his joints. Listen and enjoy!
PHIFE DAWG TRIBUTE
A live mix by Rev Shines dedicated to the life and works of Phife Dawg and A Tribe Called Quest. This mix features tracks from Weldon Irvine, De La Soul, Diamond D and more. We love you Phife.
TODAY'S GOOD NEWS VOLUME 3
The 3rd volume in the coveted Today's Good News mixtape series, originally releasing in early 2015. Rare vinyl gems broken down to the very last compound.
FUNKY MIX FOR XRAY.FM
A live on-air mix by Rev. Shines featuring co-host All Night Tong. Playing a selection of funky bangers and soon to be classics, and added banter about life in Portland. This episode includes new music from Kaytranada & The Alchemist featuring MC Eiht & Spice 1 plus some of the latest obscurities pulled by Shines.
