Ben Samples is a baller. I’ve gotten the chance to check out some of Ben’s new tunes and lets just say he’s getting on the sexy tip. He’s given his new bootleg remix of Mark Morrison’s classic Return of the Mack as exclusive downloads for AfroMonk.com & Bwomp Beats!
Today marked the release of his 2010 hit anthem Drop Bomb remix pack. I’ll be sure to be posting all the info on that tomorrow. It’s amazing how much music is constantely coming out now. This year seems like it’s going to be a monumental year for many people in the community. I know Samples has another release coming out in the near future and a blethera more to come after that. This man doesn’t stop!
Now enjoy this exclusive tune from Ben Samples, Psymbionic, and I!
John Burcham is one hell of a man. That is how I’ll start this Fire Friday Mix post. Psymbionic is one of John’s persona that spread music with us. He’s damn good at it too. He I believe has the first weekly glitch-hop night going in Austin, Texas. He is definitely on top of his game. This mix right here is probably one of the best pictures of where this community is going. The people we share experiences with, share stages with for that one night, communicate not only as fellow DJs & Producers but friends.
This mix is an instant classic you just don’t know it yet. The amount of freshness this mix has is stunning. I know many of these guys and Psymbionic lets each tune have its glory as it all blends together into one hell of a journey. A key piece to this entire mix is the way John works his own music enter. Showing his take on certain songs he has remixed and share not only his take but others as well making sure not to take all the glory of his own.
Be sure to catch this man while he does a mini tour of the west coast. He has some major stops in LA, SF, Reno, Arcata, Portland, and Seattle. Be sure to catch him if you can. He’s truly one of the nicest guys around. I’ve had the pleasure of hanging out with him a couple week-ends now and genuine dude. Just make sure you remember homie’s a veggie!
Can’t talk enough about how great John has been. Tremendously knowledgeable and professional dude. He’s be a great friend ever since I relocated to Texas. Much respect and safe travels brother!

Psymbionic is John Burcham. The man is doing it big in Texas and making his way on the national circuit. He’s definitely on his game right now. He recently rocked out Wakarusa & Sonic Bloom this year. John’s constantly hard at work banging out tunes, running a blog, playing out, and staying on top of the music. This guy has some serious love for this and truly welcoming dude. There is a possibility that I might be moving to Austin and he’s been nothing but helpful and making me feel like this giant move will go smoothly if I end up out there. The best part of doing all this is meeting and connecting with up and coming producers but also getting to know some good people in the process.
Check out some of his tracks and LIVE mix from Wakarusa.
