I’ve spent the better part of two days doing nothing but acquiring new music. I’m talking about going through two months worth of dj service updates, blogs, and emails. It was a tedious but very rewarding task, and I reminded myself why I usually stay on top of this kinda shit. I technically already posted my July Top Ten, but here are a few more joints I’m really feeling.
(Friendly reminder… peep my July and August gigs here and download my new live mix here)
1. Lady Gaga – “Alejandro (Rusko’s Pupuseria Remix)”
2. M.I.A. – “Born Free (12th Planet Remix)”
3. Fat Joe feat. Rico Love - “No Problems”
4. Audio Jacker – “Pump Up The Volume”
5. Jae Millz feat. Chris Brown - “Green Goblin”
Veoba has been doin their thang lately. From online advertising to marketing to merch to distribution, Dick can do it all. Veoba is also known for the parties they throw all over the country. I was lucky enough to play their first website pre-launch party with the dude Kid Static, and now I’m back for round 2. Streets on Fire and Ssssnake, plus myself and DJ Abducted on the wheels. This will be dumb fun.
So I was gonna wait to post this up till I officially added it to the site, but its already on my Soundcloud page and has been gettin some good press all over the intertron. You can peep my lil synopsis and tracklist on the page, feel free to leave a comment and let me know what you think. Big ups to 10mixes.com and DJIntelOne.com for showin love.
My DJ idol, frequent collaborator, and bff Kid Cut Up is a machine. This man works harder than anyone I’ve ever met (I’d like to consider myself a close second) and he is truly one of the illest DJs on the planet. His skills are top-notch, and his ideas are always cutting-edge. One of my favorite routines of his is called “A Good Day Under the Bridge”, where he blends Ice Cube’s “Good Day” with Red Hot Chili Peppers’ “Under the Bridge”. The routine has been slaying live for the better part of a year, so the next logical step was to give it a video treatment. He and Darren Cole of Alphabang Productions teamed up to make said video, and it has been getting CRAZY love all over the intertron. I couldn’t be happier for the both of them. Here it is in all its glory….
The rumors are true. Last Friday was my last weekly at Tonic Room… because I will now be holdin it down every Friday at ROOF at the Wit! Most definitely excited for this new opportunity, can’t wait to get it crackin this weekend. ROOF now boasts the most impressive DJ lineup in the city as far as I’m concerned, with White Shadow every Wednesday, myself on Fridays, and tons of dope DJs on Saturdays and Sundays. The Music Trust is doin it huge, and I’m happy to be a part of it.
I also wanted to shout out Nic, Izzo, Rob, and everyone over at Tonic Room. The past year has been an absolute blast DJing there every weekend, but its time for a change. And fear not Tonic patrons, my man Deejay Pickel will be now holding down every Friday starting next week.
Please check my calendar for all my upcoming dates here and follow me on Twitter here. As always, thank you for your continued support.
Been a couple weeks since my last true update… And there is a good reason why. For those that don’t know, I got married Saturday to my gorgeous wife Erica. Best day of my life. Photos coming soon. Now, however, its back to the grind.
