Yes. We know. You're supposed to wait until Cinco de Mayo to throw your Cinco de Mayo party. But this year it fell on a Wednesday and we really wanted to maximize attendance because our little soiree was a fundraiser for the construction of the Burning Man Temple (http://temple2010.org). So we settled on the Saturday before (May 1st, hence "Uno de Mayo") which turned out to be a small stroke of genius because the venue, Mission Rock, was absolutely packed with cowboys and cowgirls dancing and riding the mechanical bull we brought in for the occasion. And with the way we Space Cowboys tend to put away our booze it certainly didn't hurt to have a Sunday to recover.
This mix is a live recording of my opening set from the main room that evening. I knew I had the big bats (MurphStar & 8Ball) on deck and didn't need to play too hard. My goal was to keep the mood fun and lite so this mix is loaded with lots of funky breaks and happy vocals, like Plaza de Funk's "Push 'n Pull" (a track that both Murph and 8Ball are rather fond of).
If you were at Uno de Mayo paryting with us then the next time you see 'em, make sure you tip your ten gallons to fellow Cowboys Shissla and PK for putting together a fantastic party for a great cause. Well done, Boys!
