1. Day – “Mama Shelter” (AUDIO).

    Cali producer/remixer Day (a/k/a DJ Day ) has been doing quality work for years – as anyone familiar with mid-’00s sample collage singles like “What Planet What Station” and “Gone Bad” or his unofficial remix of Erykah Badu’s “Honey” knows. With “Mama Shelter,” a track from his forthcoming Land of 1000 Chances LP, Day shows his skills at pairing disparate sampled sources undiminished. But here the emphasis isn’t on b-boy friendly break-age but shifting moods, as a lilting French vocal gives way to a philosophical refrain (“Once you begin to make it/The harder it is to take it…”) and a sparse final section. Listen below. Download it, HERE . Land of 1000 Chances drops February 12th via PL70.
