Fresh Selects was established in 2008 as a music blog;
then in 2010 ran as a year-long concert series in its hometown of Portland, Oregon
before returning as a blog in 2011
this time focusing more on developing its own original free projects & now continues in 2013 as an independent record label and will now have the chance to give a proper re-release to some of their favorite free projects from over the years, while they also help develop new artists and their original projects as well.
Will be a re-issue of their longtime compadre, Mndsgn’s recent concept beat tape, breatharian – mixed & mastered for the first time with new bonus tracks and liner notes and released on high quality cassette, with music videos, remixes & more still to come.
And so to celebrate the occasion, Mnd has whipped up a follow-up to his fan-favorite Frugal Earth Mix, where he presents choice samples & breaks alongside new edits & remixes from across all genres.
Vol. Two of the Frugal series comes in two parts – Side A & B, which will both be available for free download exclusively with your purchase of the breatharian tape, available November 12th via the Fresh Selects Bandcamp page…
In the meantime, you can stream Side A of the mix here and download a free highlight from it – a Mndsgn edit of Phyllis Hyman’s Bobby Caldwell cover, “What You Won’t Do For Love.”
