a sentence about your web site

I made this mix in 2006 using some of my best record collection of funk, disco and all other dope obscure breaks that i have on vinyl. Some are converted from analog to digital (45's, LP's & 12's), and some are actual mp3's from digging on line. To all you beat heads - Yes, i still buy records to this day but i also dig for tracks online. It's 2008 after all.

I am posting this to build some hype for my next disco mix and on the real, it's coming reaal soon :)

All the best to you & yours in 2009!

My boy AJK just completed his first EP. I'm really feelin it. This is the his first release off of it. Electronic music at it's best. Can't wait for the other releases as well as just more music from this dude in general. Someone should sign this cat before I create a label to sign him to lol.

You Should Be Mine - Roger Troutman (GT Remix)

I did this remix last spring but have only had it up on my myspace - and it has not been available for purchase or download on the interweb. I used totally different stuff from what EPMD sampled for Crossover and my rmx is not hiphop. Its weird, i remember posting this forever ago... i think maybe stupid blogger erased it? As many of you know, they have been doing that. Google is not so democratic these days... They erased a whole post of a Cut Copy remix i did a few weeks ago. Like, i posted it and Google/Blogger who is working with th RIAA, will just erase whole posts that they feel miiiight be a copyright violation. Bullshit. Anywaaaaay, Ive had a bunch of requests for it. The Stylusts homies put it in their Palmsout mix a little while back which has led to even more requests for it. Im lazy. So instead of servicing it to each of the ppl asking ...ima just post it... again?

Jazzy Jeff put me up on these guys 410 Pharrohs. They recorded at Jeff's studio, so he advanced me their LP at WMC Miami. These dudes are from Baltimore and are actually putting down some nice raps on club beats. Here is a remix I did of their 12" "Fresh":
