Guest Mix: Baby Armie

I fancied myself a music writer at one time, and there's no doubt that has rubbed off on my approach to DJing. When I put together a mix, I like to cover a specific sound, era, scene, region, theme, or mood the way a feature writer might. And this mix is no different. I gathered up some of my favorite—and more accessible—dance tunes of the past year and threw them all in a pot. The resulting product is eclectic and encompasses many genres. 2015 seemed to offer no particular overbearing trend in underground dance music, and I tried to reflect that here.

Guest Mix: Amy Garland Angel

Amy Garland Angel is a songwriter, social worker, mom, wife, community radio d.j. and avid list maker. She started playing guitar and writing songs at the age of nine. As a young girl, she was a regular on Hayride stages and as a teenager, she made her rounds in the Hwy 80 honky tonks of Louisiana with a fake I.D. Garland Angel moved to Arkansas in 1995. During her years in the Natural State, she has become a fixture in the Little Rock music scene and began hosting the weekly Americana-flavored "Backroads" radio show on Little Rock's KABF FM 88.3.

We are Ten High from Fayetteville, a tone-rich sonic mess with nothing to loose. We love getting down and having fun with our buds from all around. We just released our new EP "Cable Vision," and we have lots more music coming. Come to a show. Bring earplugs!

Guest Mix: Liquid Skulls

Liquid Skulls was formed out of cobwebs, boredom, sloppiness, euphoria, joblessness, fleeting moments, liquid curses and lost responsibilities. I wanted a project that had no restrictions, no genre and was open to unplanned experimentation. It is an escape.

Guest Mix: Mach Soul

Greetings! My name is Kaylan Marks, better known as the music producer Mach Soul, and I'm here to share a few sounds with you. I've recently recovered from a broken laptop and at some point, I became addicted to Spotify. So, I've chosen the music streaming service as the medium to share some of the songs that have inspired me and my upcoming works and releases.

Guest Mix: Aaron Sarlo

Hello, friends, well-wishers, and other. Some of you know me from one of my music projects, be it the world-pummeling smart people rock band, The Dangerous Idiots, the balls-out, conceptual thinkpiece, Duckstronaut, or the powerpop wünderband, Techno Squid Eats Parliament. Perhaps you know me as a stand-up comedian, onaccounta I do that, too. Or, maybe you know me from Shoog Radio, the radio show that plays “The best in Arkansas music." I don’t know how you know me. That’s why I had to type all that stuff.

Guest Mix: Midwest Caravan

If I am completely honest with myself, the reasons I listen to rock music are Alicia Silverstone's bellybutton and the Ugly Kid Joe album cover inside the Pizza Hut jukebox. I only know how to write basically one type of song, and the songs on this playlist were either crucial in that development, or they have recently inspired me to keep writing. I listen to an unhealthy amount of black metal these days, but I figured no one would want to hear that garbage (hit me up if you want that mix!).

Guest Mix: Jeremy Brasher

Like most folks I know around here, I am really influenced by and enthusiastic about all sorts of music. From electro and house, to reggae and dub, golden age hip hop, 80's EBM, soul, any heavy metal that references the devil, gamelan music, equestrian jazz, hardcore whale songs, machinery noises, you name it, if it's good I'm into it.

It's safe to assume that most people (all people) are, to some extent, preoccupied with being cool. I can say that, without a doubt, it is much harder to ignore the impulse to attain "cool" after people have told you that they think that you are cool.

Guest Mix: Big Piph

I'm honestly not the best w/ playlists. I tend to to start building them, stop, claim I'm gonna round them out to perfection, and then never do. As a result, I stay playing the same 5 songs over and over when it's questionable if they are even the best fit.

Guest Mix: High Lonesome

I guess you could say that this list is sort of a "what are they listening to now," with some old favorites peppered in. We each picked 4 songs a piece, and if you know us personally, you could probably guess who picked what. These are the songs that we sing and play air-guitar to in our undies.

Guest Mix: Christopher Farris Terry (C.T.)

I try to listen to music constantly. I don't listen to as much creepingly heavy metal as one would think, and when I do it's an entire album at a time instead of mixed up. Any mixtape I make usually has Paige Anderson and the Fearless Kin on it. I also LOVE soft rock hits. I have entire comps put together of this stuff, I can't make a comp without some.

This is my Saturday night/Sunday morning mix. At my house, marking the ebb and flow of days is almost ritual. For years, my wife Robyn and I did not officially end our week and signal the beginning of the weekend without dropping the needle on Hound Dog Taylor’s "Genuine House Rocking Music" LP.

Guest Mix: Joshua Asante

Romance ruins everything. It pervades into every fiber of our social tapestry and fills our minds with the mirage that is wholeness. We are obsessed with “having it all”, whatever that means individually. And when we cannot have it, we feel a varying sense of loss that often propels us toward self injury. At many different points in my stumble I have felt this pang.

Guest Mix: Bonnie Montgomery

I've never been a good dj really, always throwing in a Rossini aria or some spoken word ballad by Johnny Cash at a late night party, but I do listen to music constantly and had fun putting this list together. I narrowed it down to music I'm listening to a lot this week, some of my all time favorites, and mostly (hopefully) a playlist that others might enjoy.

Here's a collection of 9 records that's really had an effect on my career. These records have touched me in many ways ... some are very personal and even disturbing at times when I hear them, because of certain situations I been through where those records were playing in the background. I'm proud to share this 9 track soundtrack with Arkansas Times because these records mean so much to me and I hope you enjoy!!!

Guest Mix: Andrew Morgan

This mix came about like most do: I grabbed a stack of records — some recent acquisitions some not so — that included tunes I'm currently obsessed with, put a tape in the deck, started mixing without a plan, and then tried to stop by the time the tape ran out.

Guest Mix: The Coasts

In addition to the new and amazing Ty Segall album, here are some songs that we're currently listening to and passing back and forth as we're working on songs for our new LP. Some of them are real jammers and some are more low key, so just sit back and let the vibes do their thing. And don't think about the fact that we just said "vibes."
