Tonalism Marfa 2012 Setlist: Chambo

Sorry for the long absence: Hollander and I will be coming back a little more frequently here on the ID Music website if all goes according to plan. To start off with, here’s my setlist from this weekend’s sublime Tonalism happening out at El Cosmico.

Super stoked that everybody was feeling the Dead bootleg. Favorite moment came when OG Houston Synth Guru JD Emmanuel comes up during the opening guitars of “Scarlet Fire” and he’s like, “Phish or Umphrey’s McGee?” Dude is so down. It was an absolute lifetime DJ highlight to provide the bridge between Sun Araw’s undulating free-form meditation soundtrack and JD’s epic healing synth session. Here’s what I played.

Scarlet Begonias > Fire on the Mountain – Grateful Dead – 05.08.77 Barton Hall, Cornell University, Ithaca NY / The Illness – Sunburned Hand of the ManHeaddress / Vent B5 – Thoughts on Air – Vent / Dub Disorder – Jah Division – Dub Will Tear Us Apart / St. Elmo’s Fire – Uilab – Fires / Iron Man – Four Tet – Everything Comes and Goes / Cortez the Killer – Stag Hare – A Fundamental Experiment / Take it Easy – The Meditations – Wackies Sampler
