Flying Lotus - Theme/Tesla
Truncate: I don't know how many times I've started flights with these two tracks... its just perfect for me! Actually the whole album is amazing, but these two just kick start it for me! That 'Theme' intro though!
Slum Village - 2U4U
When I'm in the hip hop mood, I always gravitate towards J Dilla and this tune in particular from Slum Village. It's so smooth and mellow but just has that head nod shit, I love it!
Minor Threat - Filler
Sometimes mid flight I like to turn to the punk stuff, maybe from the frustration from sitting on a plane for 5-6 hours with at least 4-5 hours to go... but this is some great stuff to let out some steam (mentally).
Death - Freakin Out
Death are another punk band I enjoy listening to. I recently discovered them because of the documentary about these guys from Detroit. Maybe its the angry teenager inside of me still, but I really enjoy this energetic punk music! The whole album is great to listen to too!
Jeff Mills - Essential Mix 1998
This isn't a single track but a whole mix and I can't tell you how many times I've listened to this set from the master, Jeff Mills. So many good tracks, great mixing and transitions in here and I would love to get my hands on a lot of these records. I'm still searching for some!
