SIDES004: Shea Bermingham

1

A blend of recent favorites, recorded live and loose on a warm evening drinking grapefruit w/ mint and seltzer. Aside from some jungle and hip-hop passages, this is mostly a light meditative mood mix with a jazzy twist running throughout.

Shea is a selector, listener and label laborer based between NYC and the South Pacific.

Josiah, who helps curate the record and book selection at Commend, devised his mix using only the resources of the $3 dollar record bins found at the store, recycling and restoring the monetarily marginal or partially damaged ranks for a deeply personal mix.
