Mikey “Custodian of Soul” Post “Satan Is Her Name”

She comes only by the light of the moon, walking amongst shadows in forests absent of life. Her face, cloaked in goat skin tanned long before man had words for such, is the color of fresh ash. When she is near, your candles will cease to catch flame, and your bones will turn to glass.  No bolted door or barred window can stop her. Her intoxicating beauty puts you at ease as she gently embraces the back of your neck with her long, delicate fingers. But it is too late, for she is eternal darkness.  Her name is Satan Download at your own risk

Old Chris, Young Chris, Classy Chris, MF Chris, Old Young Classy Chris, are just some of the names our good friend and veteran NYC Soul DJ, Chris Barrett goes by. Luckily for us, Chris took a minute away from his laborious schedule of reinvention to bring us a mix of epic proportions. Culled from Chris‘ extensive collection of first rate soul 45s – this mix boasts a potpourri of mid-tempo floaters, and heavy low-rider ballads; the kind of tunes that have made Chris a fixture on the Slow Soul Scene. Catch him at his regular gigs here in Brooklyn: Truly Yours (Every Thursday at The Great Georgiana), and Knights of the Round Tables (Every third Friday at The Commodore – along with fellow purveyors of the “Slow Sound” Mr. Fine Wine and Mikey Post).  A perfect mix for warm-weather Get Downs, or late-nite Stay Ins.

The stars at night are big and bright – DEEP IN THE HEART OF TEXAS!

It is an honor for us to share with you this artfully crafted mix, lovingly transferred to the MP3 format by our favorite Houstonian currently presiding in our beloved Brooklyn, the incomparable Brett Koshkin.  When Brett’s not writing cover stories for the Village Voice, posting pictures of plus-size cats on Instagram, preparing delicious feats, or obsessing over the TSU Toronados – he’s probably buying, playing, or listening to first rate Soul 45s. Thankfully for us, he decided to put together some of his favorites for us to enjoy. So sit back, grab a Lone Star, maybe some chili (don’t you dare put beans in it), and get down to some quality Texas Soul. On the count of three: One… Two… Three…  THANKS BRETT!
