I Hear Music In the Street

Ahhh yes Unlimited Touch, they always kill it! What a baseline on this track it's total murder. I Like playing "I Hear Music In The Streets" in my sets from time to time it kind of lights up the room in a funky way. Ya dig? In a day or so I will post the Hip-Hop Joint that sampled this tune. In the mean time hope you enjoy!

Mixable Intro Edits

Here's a grip of intro edits I've made the last few months. There are a few rap joints - the Michael-McDonald-sampling classic Regulate by Warren G and Nate Dogg, the Think-sampling More Towels by Philly fav Peedi Crakk. There's a nu-disco joint - High Together by Germany's Siriusmo. Plus, there's the slow, bouncing disco groove of Keep on Steppin by Fatback.

This is my Yom Kippur penance.

Robotique presents Trus'me - Tonight!

I have been MIA because work has been destroying my existence. I have also been stepping up my promotion game and working hard to book fun guests at a variety of events.. stay tuned for that!

That all said, tonight we are bringing Manchester's Trus'me aka David Wolstencroft to our Robotique weekly. If you don't know David's music, you simply have not been paying attention to house music in the last two or three years.

This will be David's second appearance in Philadelphia and his first in a small, good sounding club. We will let David rock for two hours and there will be an after party. For details on that, come to the booth and talk to either myself or Ryan T.

See you in the pit!

September Metropolis Pics

This is what a Swag Rave looks like...

For Real

Old Joint I use to run in the 90's. Jackal The Bear over Chuck Browns "Bustin' Loose" Reggae Banger! I remember hearing Dj Ran and Cosmic Kev on power 99 killing doubles of this in the 90's.

Deep vibes in future times....

I'm thinking we have an mp3 premier here from Future Times' newest 12". They were even kind enough to allow me to post a 320! Vibe 1 is a compilation of warm vintage electronic sounds from 4 different artists - for fans of classic Chicago House, Dam-Funk & spacing out. Word is the first pressing sold out, so if you see a copy scoop it up. For those of us who are more digitally inclined, fear not! Files will be available on Juno Download soon.

Also, if you're not following Andrew from Future Times' blog on The Fader, be sure to check it out for regular doses of deep deep goodness... Heal Yourself And Move

Got Myself Together

Probably the most useful find from my recent trip to The Thing, here is an amazing Bucketheads track that's new to me. We were listening to "Movin" on the ride up - what a coincidence that I scooped a track that flips it.

My Satisfaction

Before my gig on Sunday we stopped by The Thing for a couple hours of filthy digging. That's actually me buried in the crates pictured above. This little early 90's house gem was one of my more obscure finds.

"On The Floor" (Rock It)

Love this joint! I found this in the Delaware collection I have been sifting though lately. Many thanks to my homie Flux for putting me on. Enjoy!

Alex Koplin (Moodgadget) on Nighttime World radio tonight

Don't miss tonight's episode of Nighttime World, featuring Alex Koplin from the Moodgadget label!

Moodgadget was founded in 2004 by Jakub Marek Alexander and Adam E. Hunt with the goal of exposing the diversity in electronically made music. Alexander and Hunt (who currently reside in Brooklyn and Los Angeles, respectively) became heavily involved in the electronic music scene through their work with the acclaimed Ghostly International label, and were frustrated by the public's misconception that all electronic music was "club" music. They wanted to draw attention to the fact that electronic music is a process, not a genre; within its broad walls lives a plethora of sounds – everything from catchy folk to melodic techno.

Alex will be showcasing the music of Moodgadget (and some of his other favorites) tonight on Nighttime World, beginning at 10 p.m. EST on Party 934!

This Saturday - Philadelphyinz Gets Dressed Up f. Sammy Bananas

This weekend we've got a real hot mess of an event going on at Medusa Lounge. Our friends Marko and Lexie are helping us throw a fancy/classy/crazy/slutty/nasty dress up party. Basically just dress up as wild as you please (or not) and prepare to get grimy to the sounds of yours truly, DJ Apt One, and our very special guest Sammy Bananas (Fool's Gold Records).

Alison Shildt will be there to take portraits, and our buddy Didier Clain prepared this amazingly bugged out video for your viewing pleasure:

The video features two tracks that are available for free DL:

Telephoned (Sammy Bananas & Maggie Horn) - Pop Champagne
(available from RCRDLBL)
DJ Apt One - Sweatin

This Is How We Chill From 93 Til

Had somebody hand a beer to me in the DJ booth on Friday. The name of this song was written on the napkin. Needless to say - that's how you request a motherfucking song.

Don't You Want Me

Last April I came across Morsy's tasteful mix of Don't You Want Me. The subtly beefed up drums are nice in the club, but the real clincher is that he sped it up to 125 bpm. After seeing the whole dancefloor freak out to it last night at Hurrah, I thought I'd share:

I scored a cheap 12" of Strategy on a recent digging excursion. It was a nice surprise to preview it on the listening station and have an "oh, it's thaaaaat song" moment. At first I was thinking of making an edit, maybe extending the intro, but after a few listens I realized that this song is perfect as is. Here's a fresh rip of the 12" version, complete with a strangely loud break at the end.

Also, a rip of a Tanya Stephens bootleg remix was just removed from DBJ due to a Digital Millennium Copyright Act violation. Guess Tanya wasn't feeling it. It's a shame too - it's an amazing bootleg more people should hear.

Ice Cream Paint Job

I say...
Yeah buddy
Rolling like a big shot
Chevy tuned up like a nascar pit stop
Fresh paint job? (check)
Fresh inside? (check)
Is the outside frame in the trunk wide? (yes)
Are the rims big? (what)
Do it ride good? (good)
Lean back right hand on the pine wood

Cream on the inside, Clean on the outside....

To Begin Again / No Surprise

Yesterday, I was delivered a pair of stone tablets from the fiery summit of Mount Italo. The tablets contained instructions for posting the latest offerings from the elusive Peter Dragontail, a new original track and a remix, respectively. The tablets also contained a wonderful recipe for homemade iced coffee. Enjoy!

Summer's Almost Gone

I recorded this mix last week to pay tribute to the rapidly fading summer. More for getting lost than for dancing, although there are a few pulse-quickening moments. Big thanks to Peter Dragontail for designing the accompanying artwork.
