Wedding Jamz

Once or twice a year I DJ a wedding, and I usually welcome the opportunity because, in short, somebody's Dad is giving me a financial incentive to rip a whole bunch of grandma-appropriate funk, soul and rock DBJs. Of course, I ripped some non-DBJs, but hell no you can't have 'em - I'm a stickler for the formula.

I ripped something like 30 records getting ready for a wedding that I'm doing this afternoon. Here are two.

P.S. Always treat the DJ right, he has the power to play "Put It In Your Mouth" at your wedding.

New Wurst Edits!

NYC's Wurst Edits just released another fine pair of tracks. This time around, Fun's Eamon Harkin touched up The Mixmasters' "In The Mix" and John Carpenter's "The End." Right now, I'm really feeling the intense drum workouts and sweet pianos on "Innit," the Mixmasters edit.

Order the 12" at Turntable Lab and they will even throw in a free Wurst Summer t-shirt.

Also, Philadelphia will be getting it's Wurst fix over the next couple months, with the return of Marcos Cabral and the premier of My Cousin Roy. More details to come.

Brand New Funk

I went to the first ever Philly DJ Day yesterday and hearing this song over the system, I forgot how fucking amazing it is.

The event itself was incredible- old heads, new heads and everybody in between- a lot of the establishment of DJs in this DJ town.

More flicks and videos from Philly DJ Day at Philadelphyinz.com.

Luxxury Edits

Here are a couple of very useful edits by Baron Von Luxxury. "In Particular" has helped to warm up the crowd at Hurrah quite a few times. Also, don't sleep on the surprisingly awesome lyrics in "Systems Breaking Down." "We take our cloths off to survive" definitely grabs my attention every time.

Be sure to check Disco Workout for more from the Baron.

Nighttime World

Tonight at 10 p.m. EST (3 a.m. Tuesday in GMT) is the launch of my new weekly internet radio show on Party 934. I'm going to be mixing the show live, and I'm really excited to have this as an outlet to play some weirder/less dancey stuff that might be difficult to pull off in a club or bar. Check it out if you get a chance, or at least just allow the web stream to run while you go about your business, in order to artificially inflate my number of listeners.

It's Never Peace Beneath The East Stars / Mid 90's Murder

This is a one take all vinyl mix of the freshest mid 90's Hip-Hop. Most of the vinyl is rare as hell, so if you want a track list please email me. Other than that this mix is self explanatory. If you don't know umm just act like you do! Peace.... I spit the semi auto posing in mini photos!!!

Neil Young? House Music? Hmmmm...

All killer, no filler.

If Neil Young Made House Music

The vocals from the Sin Mix are utter garbage, but the instrumental on the flip works well enough as filler, as the track doesn't really go anywhere. There is, however, a decent little hands-in-the-air moment that's repeated throughout the chorus, which could actually sound pretty cool at the right time of night/level of drunkenness. I'm not in love with this, but I'm strangely drawn to it. Thoughts?

Even though I'm from Pittsburgh, I got love for Cleveland. Specifically, I got love for bona fide rap champs like Ray Cash, Al Fatz, Bone Thugs and more.

My boys The Kickdrums are behind a lot of the music coming out of the rap scene (including the ridonkulous mixtape Clangin and Swangin by Ray Cash) as well as some joints by 50 Cent if memory serves. They're branching out on some next shit- and when they slid me their new pop song Love is a Drug, I worked it into a new mixtape Skinny and I are finishing up. The way I blended it up on the tape sounded so good to me that I had to get Tilla's source tracks so I could just flip the whole damn thing.

The result is a remix/blend type joint that flips chunks of Eric Prydz's Euro rave anthem Pjanoo.

Big In Japan

Apparently the a-side was a huge hit. Well, forget about those vocals and dive straight into it's awesome synths. This is set to be a fixture in my mellow sets for a while.

Also, check out how cheesy these guys look in the pic above. Don't let the checkered sport coat hanging off of his plaid sweater dissuade you from the download though! What they lack in style, they make up for in synth.

Dancing in Outer Space

Good score here from Sweet Jane. Apparently, these are remixes of a disco classic, but there's no mistaking the signature sound of Masters at Work less than a minute into either of these tracks. The "Lunar Mix" is a straight-up Billy Werner jam, and the "Dubbed In Space version" is actually only somewhat more restrained...can't hold back that sax.
