After watching Felix Baumgartner's amazing 23+ mile base jump this weekend, I've been doing some serious re-evaluation of my life. Baumgartner set world records this weekend, and I rearranged the furniture in my bedroom. It doesn't exactly balance out, but it's OK. Especially since I get paid to listen to mixtapes and then tell the internet why they should listen to them. It's definitely not as cool as a free fall from 128,000 feet in the air, but I'm scared of heights anyway...

I, Ced - "The Soul Mansion Mix Part One":

I, Ced first popped up on my radar with his "Love... Meaning" single with Coultrain, and since then I've been a fan.  However for some reason I'd never heard any of his DJ work until coming across this mix where he shows some crew love to Hawthorne Headhunters & Black Spade as well as dropping original re-edits and remixes of joints by Ta'Raach and Rainy Davis before dropping classic soul gems from Gladys Knight & The Pips and MFSB.  Definitely worth a listen!
