Tactic - Money Shot Volumes 1 & 2


Tactic, Money Shot Volume 1 (YSI link)

Tactic, Money Shot Volume 2

Tracklists for both volumes are in the comments.

I've been mentioning that I want this site to be an outlet for friends of the blog and all the good people out there grindin', makin' new tracks, djin' and makin' us dance. Here's a great start to this new direction, as this Money Shot mix was sent to me by two hard working kids in the Midwest and it kills. Repeat, this mix fucking kills. Tactic are Ben Fuller and Brent Lippincott a.k.a. djcandlewax and they hold down Kansas City with various parties and opening spots for Diplo, Flosstradamus and my bol White Girl Lust.

The two volumes of Money Shot are just what I needed right, that great blend of hip hop club bangers and street stuff combined with the best of the indie dance stuff. Yummy. I'm not going to choose a favorite, as they're both essential and reasonable sized files, so grab them both. Do not sleep, people, for real, as you're going to be talking about these guys in the near future and you'll be able to say, Please, I knew about Tactic way back, that shit's so 2007" and girls will jock you for your music hipness. What I like best is their willingness to follow the good music, whether that takes them to Paris or Atlanta or East London. It's the same ethos that dominates here, which is why I am so happy to consider them a friend of Pound for Pound.

It's not all just bedroom mixing, however. The Tactic bols hold down a monthly called Shake and Pop at The Hangout in Kansas City, along with a few other nights that you can see on their myspace page schedule. I have to highlight their new ghettotech night, Go!, which will destroy Lawrence, Kansas this Saturday. They've got special guest Bitch Ass Darius there, making The Jackpot the place to be. If you live within 8 states of this, be there.

These guys are starting to make a lot of noise, glad that we can help spread the word here.
