Friday Mix-Up, 'Squeeze Me Macaroni' Edition

More
by Ricardo Gutierrez

This week finds me up to my elbows in wiring and audio geeky stuff as I've finally moved into my new studio. I'm excited! Unfortunately, for me, my 12+ hour days this week getting it all together meant that I couldn't really work on a mix for you guys. Fortunately, for you, my lady Sam Kim has stepped in to pinch-hit for me.

I've talked up her many talents many times before. She's a chef, she blogs about food and she DJs weekly. She's been Skimmifying everything she touches with her Southern upbringing and Korean/Scoth-Irish ancestry. Her line of packaged food products include Kimchee Butter, Asian Green Goddess & Bloody Kim Jong-il Mix (that's kimchee bloody mary mix!) and have been killing it at local markets this summer. She's also rocking small-batch market-fresh "Skimchee" that changes based on what's available at the farmer's market so the flavors are constantly different and exciting. Her webstore will be up soon and she'll be at the Hester Street Fair on September 18th, if you're in NYC. You can keep up with all this on her blog, here.

Now that the plug is out of the way, down to the mix. Being that this is Labor Day weekend, most of y'all will be doing some form of grilling. So here Sam is marrying two of her favorite things, music and food, flipping the grilling/food theme on the music mix. Extra special bonus, she dropped in a quick vocal sample during "Saturday Love". It only happens a couple of times. It's like a little Easter Egg, or "Deviled Egg" as she preferred to call it. First person to correctly identify the artist and song name of that vocal sample will get a free shipment of some of her yummy food products.

She's busy hustling it up in the kitchen today but she'll be checking in on the comments thread when she gets an opportunity.

As always, download link below the stream.
