DJ Mondo – Skull Island Sessions: Special Guest Castaway – 31ric

After a short hiatus, Chicago musician 31ric (a.k.a. The Lord of Thunder) picks up his bass for some informal jamming with DJ Mondo.

31ric washed up on the shores of Skull Island during some severe weather this week. He didn’t have to ‘get his chops back’, because they never left.

Have a listen to this Skull Island session, then check out his blog (www.31ric.com) and Twitter feed (@1bluebass).

DJ Mondo contemplates what drives the masses during the Lunch Rush.

It’s difficult to get a handle on what actually motivates humans to action. Social inequity. Injustice. Governmental corruption. The suffering of other humans. Even when glaringly apparent, these are not always sufficient.

While they’re often tentative, at best, to unite and mobilize for what is generally considered universally desirable  (e.g. social welfare, universal health care, infrastructure maintenance), they’re more than happy to tell anyone that will listen what they hate (that other religion, those people over there, anything that’s not the way it used to be).

Anyway, check out this tune…

DJ Mondo – Skull Island Sessions: The Technical Problem of Peace

DJ Mondo – Skull Island Sessions: The Technical Problem of Peace

Humans tend to think of peace as a state dependent on personal or collective temperament or morality.

While that is true, contributing factors to global peace also include accessibility, cessation of want or scarcity and balanced commerce.

Once these technical issues are overcome, the remaining issues of morality or temperament become clear.

DJ Mondo pops the (musical) question during the Lunch Rush.

Throw the bouquet and rush down the aisle! After the unnatural marriage of Techno and Funk, your whole life is ahead of you now.

Meet the bride.

DJ Mondo – Skull Island Sessions: Overclock

DJ Mondo – Skull Island Sessions: Overclock

It’s time to acknowledge the unnatural relationship we have with our machines, artificial extensions of our physical and mental selves.

Even if you’ve never gone under the knife and had a device implanted, you’re just as much a cyborg if you can’t put it down, turn away or remember a phone number without it.

Anyway, check out this tune.

DJ Mondo braves the temperature drop during the Lunch Rush

The temperature was 45°. That’s down from 79° yesterday.

Even in light of that, I got no takers for my Domed City Initiative. 
Ok. I guess you people know what you’re doing. 

Anyway, I’m trying a new tactic to making tunes. I compose, record and post it to SoundCloud during a 20 minute stretch while I’m at lunch. I call it the DJ Mondo Lunch Rush. Here’s the first of them. 

Check it out, comment and show me something you made. 

DJ Mondo – The Skull Island Sessions: Re-Integration

DJ Mondo – Skull Island Sessions: Re-Integration This tune will break you down into your constituent elements, centrifuge out the contamination, and put you back together again purer than before.

After your personal re-integration, follow your natural urge to go forth and promote community re-integration, societal re-integration, national re-integration, and global re-integration. Then there will be no limits.

You’re welcome, humanity. DJM
