I’ve been a fan of Dallas’ A.Dd+ since DJ Sober put me on to them at SXSW 2 years ago. We stayed in touch about what they’ve had going on and I was geeked when they reached out about doing a remix of one of their tracks. These dudes are dumb talented, grind hard, consistently put out good music, and have a great live show! (If they’re in your town, GO SEE THEM.)
Thanks to Sober for making the connect (and killing the art!) and to Rosalinda for making it all happen.
For the final year that APT (the legendary NYC nightspot) was open, Moma & I held down second Fridays for our monthly party, Special Delivery. Very quickly, it became one of the high points of my month, along with The Rub. Days before our 1 year anniversary in 2010, APT was shut down for good. In the past 2 and a half years, we’ve done Special Delivery as one-offs, but were always holding out for the right venue to get it up and running right. We finally found it!
Join us Thursday, June 28th as we jump-off the all new weekly Special Delivery at Viktor & Spoils!
Fridays mornings are about to get rough again.
The homie Señor Kaos and I just dropped our update of Jeru The Damaja’s “Da Bichez”. In no way meant to disrespect women, we wanted to pay homage to Jeru and DJ Premier’s classic. Now 18 years after its release, Kaos and I re-visited and revamped it. This is the first track off Kaos’ EP, “Mama Said The Sun Rises In The Resurrection”, coming July 3rd, 2012
We’re back for season two of Str8 West Coastin’. Same great backyard, same great DJs (plus some VERY special guests), and more of the same great music. (Hopefully will a lot less earthquakes and hurricanes.) Mark your calendars!
Eugene Tamborine and I just let our remix of Goapele’s “Play” fly this week. (Check the Soundcloud player to download it.) Thanks to DJ Icewater for the mix, Ricardo Guitierrez for the master, and Dee Phunk for the art.
Plus, as an added and very unexpected bonus, our Yum Yum homie Tand Williams came with the ill video!
Thanks to everyone that made the 11/11/11 party such a great success. It’d take all day to name everyone individually, but special thanks are due to:
The Red Bull Space for having us and Bushill’s USA for providing lots of booze.
Moma, Max Glazer, Mick Boogie, DJ Illo, Matthew Africa, Ayres & Cosmo for the great music and Donwill & Mike Baker on the hosting duties.
Namane for helping to make the whole thing happen & Matt Arlyck for keeping the crowds at bay & Kenny Rodriquez for documenting the whole thing. You can see all of the photos here
And, much thanks to everyone who came out to celebrate with us!
I’m been scheming on this party for MONTHS. A chance to get some of my favorite DJs together in one place with some of my favorite people and celebrate a day when everything comes up elevens? Yeah, I’ll take that. Here’s the story:
Friday, November 11, 2011
The Red Bull Space – 40 Thompson Street (at Watts), NYC
Music by Mick Boogie, The Rub, Max Glazer, DJ Moma, Matthew Africa, DJ Illo
Hosted by Donwill & Mike Baker The Bike Maker
9PM-1AM, open bar all night, $11.
There are a VERY limited number of tickets available at www.eleven11eleven.eventbrite.com/.
Grab them NOW. Because when they’re gone, they’re gone.
“This DJ Eleven remix of “Go To Work” by J Boogie’s Dubtronic Science is so outlandishly funky that it’s disappointing rooftop lounges aren’t still open to fully experience it. A sweaty apartment will do, though. There’s that sweet, fat old school synth bass, melodic squelches like De La Soul’s “Me, Myself And I” and a simple yet seductive refrain to just be there and dance. Boogie’s new one,Undercover, has more of this, and it’s out now on OM Records.”
Head on over here to download it for free. Or check it out down below in the player.
The homie DJ Center just released the remix version of his “Everything In Time” album, including a remix by yours truly. While my version of “In A Song” can’t handle a candle to DJ Spinna or Applejac’s remixes, I’m still pretty damn proud of it! Head on over to iTunes and cop it right here.
