Matty C Action Mix

November 30th, 2010

On Dec 14th of 2010, 11 Inch records will be letting Matty C’s awesome Action EP fly. In preperation, the Van City O.G. put together a mix filled with the EP’s gems, plus some other goodies from the 11 Inch vaults, to highlight what it is.  Suffice it to say, this sh-t is f-cking good!

Grab it at Matty’s soundcloud:

DJ Center “In A Song (DJ Eleven remix)”

November 2nd, 2010

The homies over at Turntable Lab have unleashed the third volume of their Secret Hangout series, which includes my remix of DJ Center’s “In A Song” for free downloading.  Center’s album is titled “Everything In Time” and is full of gems.  But, from the first listen, “In A Song” was my joint!  I begged Center for the acapella & he was gracious enough to let me take a crack at remixing it.  But right in the middle of working on it, my grandmother passed away.  So in the two weeks that I was hiding from the world & waiting to get the word about when the memorial service would be, I buried my head in this remix.  Everytime I listen now, I think about my grandmother & what an incredible person she was.  For that, I’m forever in Center’s debt.

You can grab it for free, along with joints from Flying Lotus, Rusko, Gold Panda, Chico Mann, Gaslamp Killer and Nick Catchdubs over here

The Mulligans Slaughterhouse

November 1st, 2010

This is the last of the joints that are left-over from the abandoned rock project which keeps coming up in these posts. It’s one of the hardest for me to listen to for a couple reasons: 1) I love Masta Ace’s “Slaughterhouse” a lot! 2) I don’t have much love for Queens of the Stone Age at all. In the end, I don’t think this joint deserves the trash bin. But, as always, you’ll be the judge of that.

R. Kelly + Grizzly Bear? Yup. And it sounds pretty okay.

BoB Mulligan

October 18th, 2010

Outkast’s “Bombs Over Baghdad” is one of those records which is super hard to touch: it’s weird, it’s crazy funky, and people love it. When I started to work on this joint, I was more concentrated on getting the beat to work (that’s Animal Collective, by the way) & the ‘Kast was just a placeholder acapella to try & get some structure worked out. But after listening to this over & over & over & over, I couldn’t imagine it without the Outkast. And, in the end, the acapella didn’t sound great (neither does the beat, haha), so I shelved it. But, like all of The Mulligans, there’s something there which I can’t quite throw away.

new Mulligans

October 11th, 2010

With The Mulligan this week, we’ll keep the action in Queens with a fairly liberal loop of The Menahan Street Band’s “The Traitor” and the M-O-B-B. The idea was to do a cover of sorts, while taking the song in a completely direction. I spent a fair amount of time trying to find someone to re-do the vocals because I felt like this acapella had been beat to death when the song came out. One friend, who’d probably prefer to not be reminded of the recording hell I put them through, even went so far as to re-do all the vocals. But, alas, it just wouldn’t click. So here it is with the original vocal. Hope you enjoy.

The Mulligans #4 Royal Flush / Eleven

October 4th, 2010

More outtakes from that ill-conceived rock project. This time, we take a trip to Queens, New York to hear what might happen if the Rotten Apple’s Royal Flush were to rap over a joint by soft-as-twinkie-filling lady-loving John Mayer.
