It’s a Nosdam Pain Mix MP3

One of the more wide-ranging production figures in the outer regions of hip-hop is Odd Nosdam, and DJ Pain takes a little tour through Nosdam’s back catalog on a recent, nearly hour-long mix, The Odd Side of the Sun. The DJ mixes at a quick rate (see below), but never loses site of Nosdam’s deep-seated downtempo mode. Nosdam favors sublimated noise, strummed guitar, sci-fi synths, and understated beats, all of which are in abundance here.

Pain explained to the great rhythm-incursions.com site back in January:

    The mix features all beats by producer Odd Nosdam throughout his career with the Mush and Anticon labels minus the Clouddead output that I didn’t want to focus on for the mix. I went through all of his beats that I had and wanted to do something that stayed close to his original work, yet at the same time throw my own twist on it. There’s almost 40 tracks mixed together in about 51 minutes. The mix is a little A.D.D on steroids…

More on Pain at djpain.com. As a show of appreciation, Nosdam mentioned the mix on his myspace.com/nosdam page.

    I’ve been following the blog for a while, and while I end up not liking a lot of the music linked to (a little too ambient for my liking), stuff like this, as well as the occasional netlabel gems, makes me glad that I’ve stuck around. Fantastic find, thanks!
