Vibes and stuff is a podcast conceived in April 2007 by me, Andrew Castillo, music enthusiast & (amateur) audio engineer. I began making these little selections to pass around amongst my friends, but one day I decided to throw them up here and see if anyone else was interested. I've since amassed more than 30,000 listeners in all seven continents :) My mixes are one hundred percent free, and I'll keep upping new ones as long as you all keep listening. so, please enjoy some musical selections from myself and some of my friends, and if you could, tell some of your friends too. Thanks for checking us out. :)
another reason why I love doing this, the lovely Elan Tamara, the same Elan Tamara who I raved about on the Vibes Myspace a few weeks ago, spontaneously sent me a half-hour long mixtape for your listening pleasure. shes a very talented pianist/singer/songwriter who just released her first EP Gold Fishes to immense acclaim. the young ladys mix (her first) features everything from Prince to Fela to Hudson Mohawke. its a nice laid back thing, very accessible and appropriate for pretty much whenever. enjoy, and pick up her EP ((Gold Fishes)) if you know whats good for you.
