Options Explorers Room with Flash Strap: Playlist from July 19, 2018 Options

Flash Strap's avatar View Flash Strap's profile Options

This is where all of culture and all of time are collapsed into one seductive portal and viewed through the panoramic lens of the exotic. Come and embark on an armchair-travel virtual-voyage to the heart of timeless darkness and beyond; embrace the numinous monolith of the exotic immensity. Let us find that place where hybridization meets its destiny as pure fantasy. Let us become observers observing those others who are ourselves. You wear your mask and I'll wear mine.

  7:00pm MrFab:

Got my premium the other day, the "3 Taboos" cd. SPECTACULAR. Great job, Mr Strap. I think you even took stuff off 78s?!
Avatar 7:03pm Flash Strap:

Mr. Fab! Thanks brother, means a lot coming from you. No 78s, but definitely some older-model 33s, which might explain the surface noise
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:04pm Rich in Washington:

I thought the playlist was live at that moment. Either that or I'm a bot. I can't tell anymore.

Bot or not, I'm glad you're with us now in these live times, Rich

Hi Jay - big agree
Avatar 7:12pm geezerette:

This music is so relaxing.
Avatar 7:14pm northguineahills:

Just the walls of our new office expansion. Been doing so since yesterday. Thankfully, not the outside. I look like I fell on a wet Pollock. (not a euphemism)
Avatar 7:14pm Flash Strap:

Avatar 7:27pm Flash Strap:

I always enjoy Cedric 'Im' Brooks' way around incorporating jazz and funk elements
Avatar 7:29pm Flash Strap:

This Fullwood simply one of the hardest, meanest dub cuts ever made
Avatar 7:31pm Flash Strap:

great cover for it too; img.discogs.com...
Avatar 7:31pm geezerette:

Yes, it's beautiful.

Love the cool, deep sound quality of this Fullwood tøø.
