Return to Sprinquinox

Once upon a time, there was a boy who dreamed of a place beyond place. A time without time. Perpetual bloom...exuberant euphoria. It was in this dream the Sprinquinox was born. No one can be told what the Sprinquinox is. Are you ready to experience it for yourself?

This year I celebrate 10 years of Sprinquinox, and 20 years of spring mixtapes! They are my labors of love and fuel for my fire. I hope you get some joy, laughter and dancing from this year's offering.

Now...smell the flowers on the breeze. Taste the morning dewdrops. Draw back the gossamer curtain, as we Return to Sprinquinox!

Wonderland

It's a Christmas miracle! My seasonal mixes have become sporadic these days, but a rollercoaster year of leaving NYC and coming back to Austin has stoked the creative fire. I am enamored with this mix that was practically channeled and perfectly captures the newness, nostalgia and poignant emotions of this moment in time. 

Turn up your headphones, tune into your body and feel into this one. It's a beautiful day. Don't let it get away.

This one goes out to Tasha.

Summer in the City: Last Dance

When I came here in 2010 to spend a Summer in the City, I had no idea the street beat would lure me in for a seven year adventure. Once I got into the groove, I made Summer in the City 212, and now, one last dance with the Big Apple as I prepare to leave. Ice cream trucks, endless summer nights and dancing in the street...we got a love situation!

Downtown Boogie Down

The mix that almost never was! Conceived as a companion to Bubble Pop Electric Youth, various misadventures in the Big Apple kept this mix from seeing the light of day for seven years, until now. A full-blown double-disc spring/summer extravaganza! Let Uptown Doodie Brown show you how to do a blowout right as he prepares to leave the city and hit the road.

It's more bounce to the ounce, and it's sugar free! So don't stop the music. Catch you on the flipside, peace out!!!

Brand New Day, Brand New Night

It's that time again! The sun is shining, the birds are singing, and life springs anew. After a fall and winter blackout period, Petropolis is back in action for your aural deee-lites. For the 10th anniversary of Lovely Day/Lovely Night (the spring mix that started this double disc ridiculousness) Brand New Day brings us back to basics to focus on the music.

This mix is all about the soul cleansing purity of getting lost in the groove. So relax, breathe, and let it take you where you need to go. And remember, a brand new day brings a brand new night...

PS. Listen online below, or download the single track so you can set it and fugget it!

One Love,
Petropolis

Lovely Day, Lovely Night

The year, 2006! The place, Austin, Texas! That year saw some major changes for Petropolis, giving birth to the very first double disc spring mix. Yes, a fabled classic in his own mind, this is the mix that started the grand tradition. Evoking lovely days spent running the trails under blue skies, and a trippy, iridescent night spent dancing till the sun came up.  Be sure to enjoy Lovely Night's 26 minute dance extravaganza!

For its 10th anniversary, Petropolis finally created the artwork that was always in his head, and will release Brand New Day | Brand New Night as a soul sister follow up. AND, Petropolis is now on Mixcloud. Listen online below...

After a lovely day...have a lovely night!

This one goes out to my grannies Patunia and Dee-lish.

This mix is inspired by and dedicated to the one and only Charlotte Rose Coyle, my muse and disco lover. Dim all the lights sweet darling, and let's dance the night away.

Summer in the City 212

In June 2010 I moved on up to NYC and experienced Summer in the City. Five years later, I'm bringing the sequel to the 212. Summer has many faces, but I love pounding the pavement to some old school funk. So if you got the boogie fever, get up offa that thing and dance until you feel better! Ya dig?

This one goes out to Shwaelder!

Blue Skies

Spring has finally sprung! While we're hard at work in the StuStuStudio on this year's mix, I wanted to share this chestnut with you. The year was 2004, before the spring mix became a thematic double disc extravaganza. Freewheeling road trips, fresh air, wildflowers and wide open spaces. And a little Jermaine Stewart ditty that gained an exalted place in the Petropolis mythology. 

I meant to share this last year for Blue Skies' 10th anniversary, but I had to reconstruct from a CD that wasn't in the best shape! So I patched it together with love, and I hope it puts a smile as big as Texas on your face. 

Yeeehaw!
