Somehow between resident gigs at Vagabond, Playwright, and the Ritz-Carlton plus being head instructor at Miami's Scratch DJ Academy, longtime FTLien turntablist Rob Riggs finds time to compile mixes of music he can't play at any of his gigs. True to its name, Don't Disturb This Smooth serves up 80 uninterrupted minutes of "experimental-down-tempo-hip-hop-electro-soul-beats" with a heavy emphasis on smooth throughout. With notable attention to detail evident in the solid blends and numerous custom edits, Riggs offers precision as well as style and keeps the lineup eclectic without sacrificing theme. Even the customary, annoying voice-over actor DJ drops are kept to a minimum and at a reasonable volume.
Although this mix won't raise your pulse above 80, it's still a perfect soundtrack for any slow-motion party montage, afterhours jacuzzi soaking, or a smoke session in zero gravity. Download Don't Disturb This Smooth here for free and clear your schedule for the next hour and 20 minutes.
