L.A. in N.Y.C.

10/5/08: Hi there, I'm your Sept. mixmaker, and I'm late. Your mix went in the mail just yesterday, sorry. On the bright side, it's only coming from Manhattan, so you should get it on Monday or Tuesday. Cheers.


Sir, you are a mixtaper after my own heart. Thanks for the righteous mix (love the random/vaguely disquieting cover). I've been looking at some of your others and thinking of asking for a monthly subscription.


hi there, hope you enjoyed the mix. It was my first IMP assignment. I forgot to follow the rules and label the disc and what not. The track list should pop up when you drop the disc in a computer. Let me know if it got there.


Yo, your April mix is late, but it went in the mail today. It was tough to try to "paint the corners" and find some things you might not know about. Seeing your mixes and taste, many of my fastballs down the middle (Andrew Bird, eg) would not have been so interesting to you.


Thanks for the awesome cd. :)


man, i want one of your cds! i always seem to get cds of music i'm not interested in :(


Jon: There was a mix-up (my son pressed a button by mistake). I did receive your May mix (as I mentioned in the gmail to you). So please don't worry about sending another mix. I've got mine.


Hoping that trademix found its way to you....Thanks again for the cd!


Got your mix a week ago...Wow, super stuff! A big part of IMP for me was to get a little bit of exposure of some really nifty, innovative music that I could never hope to hear in this Northern wilderness of top 40, Oldies tunes or CanCon radio. Thanks for the mix!


Hrm.. now that I've seen your extremely awesome list of favorite artists, it makes me want to send you another, even better mix than before.
