This week's entry for "Mixtape Mondays" is called "Live At Hotline" by my homegirl from The Bay, DJ Mamabear. This mix was recorded live on 3-29-11 at her weekly Tuesday party called Hotline at Otis Lounge in SF. This mixtape has a great collection of R&B hits like "Brown Sugar" by D'Angelo, "Groove Thang" by Zhane & "Think Of You" by Amerie & also forgotten classics like "Number One" by Patrice Rushen & one hit wonders like "I Choose You" by Confection. What's so unique about this mixtape is that Mamabear recorded it live & spun everything on vinyl, which is absolutely unheard of this day and age of laptops & Serato. I had the opportunity to spin with Mamabear a couple of months ago when I was in San Diego doing my boy DJ Beatnick's party at Bar Dynamite. Not only was she playing classic R&B & Hip Hop joints at this party but she was doing it on vinyl & that totally blew me away. If you're ever in San Francisco, you can catch Mamabear at her Hotline party or Double Dutch at Side 2 Side, every third Thursday of the month. Many thanks to Mamabear for providing us with this week's entry. I'm looking forward to hearing more mixes in the future. Enjoy Knyewtrons...Neva
