09 Highlights

Some higher power opened the flood gates this year and unleashed a tidal wave of incredible music. This mix is not a definitive document of this year's best. It's more of a biographical overview of some of the songs that made 2009 so great.

I re-uploaded the whole mix series to You can download all of them at the link below...

Shawn Ryan + Ed Blammo - 09 Highlights • 71 minutes

01. The Whitest Boy Alive - 1517
SR - A choice cut off of my favorite album of 09.

02. YACHT - Psychic City (Classixx Remix)
EB - Classixx found their way into a lot of my sets this year. This particular remix was a definite crowd favorite

03. Beautiful Swimmers - Swimmers Groove
EB - The Swimmers and the label they run, Future Times, we a big inspiration for starting my own label this year. Classic and original at the same time. Great DJs too.
SR - When I heard the Swimmers play at KFN in December 08, they peaked out the dancefloor with a groove I just had to ask about. It was their test press of Swimmers Groove. These dudes know how to throw a party too - just loan them a secluded cabin for a weekend and see what happens.

04. Walter Jones - Living Without Your Love
EB - Man, I played the shit out of this record! 5 AM in a warehouse, completely out of my mind. Don't even remember if anyone was there. Didn't matter.
SR - Oh-nine lounge gig staple.

05. Crazy P - The Hit
EB - Crazy P grooves so hard. This one goes out to DJ Dirty. He may be a bigger Crazy Penis fan than me, but not by much.
SR - Gotta love that Tom Tom Club sample!

06. Motor City Drum Ensemble - Raw Cuts #5
EB - Got to admit that I bit my friend Billy Werner's mix-in of this record more than a few times. If you've ever been to Robotique and heard him play it, you'd understand why. Disgusting.

07. Trus-Me - Bail Me Out (ft. Dam Funk)
EB - Hands down, Dam-Funk has been my number one musical inspiration this year. I saw him play twice. Once with about 15 people in the audience and again with about 200 and a keytar. His popularity is a testament to the realness. Funk gets stronger. Trus'me ain't half stepping either. His DJ set at Kung Fu Necktie this year was murderous.
SR - Dear Trus'me, I still wanna know what those acid trax you played at Sundae were.

08. Sister Sledge - Lost In Music (The Revenge Rework)
SR - I rinsed this track out since last March. Just listen to how the groove builds - you gotta feel that!

09. Azari & III - Reckless (With Your Love)
SR - The most perfect throwback house cut of the year - is this really from 2009 or did someone just remaster a lost reel to reel?

10. Yam Who? - Wax The Van
SR - Another track that's been instrumental to warming up dancers and building the groove. This track helped me set the tone for many successful sets this year.

11. RCMP - Mustache Love
EB - At their record release party, I passed out in an alley, woke up and rode my bike across town to meet them for cheese steaks and got hit by a car. Just saying.
SR - This whole 12" is pretty epic. Big shout out to Paul & Fich for coming correct!

12. Missy Elliot vs. Shit Robot - Gossip Folks (Work It Out) Snitchfork Blend
EB - This blend was a collaborative effort between the two of us. A spontaneous live trick that had to be put to tape ... er, computer.
SR - Definitely ran up to the booth when Ed tried this and told him it was our next project.

13. Eli Escobar - Glass House
SR - I liked this track from the door, but I wasn't sure how it would go off in the club. Turns out dancers get super pumped and the room lights up every time. Eli also killed it at Woodys this fall with the ill all vinyl synth-pop & new wave set.

14. Cubic Zirconia - Fuck Work (Nacho Lovers Remix)
EB - Got to see Cubic Zircona play live at Philly's Double Dutch party this year. Lucky me. Tiomble Lockhart let me play her tambourine. Lucky me.
SR - The Nacho Lovers took this track to the next level, especially with that breakdown. Plus Cubic Zirconia can rock a party - definitely one of 09's best live shows.

15. Martijn Ten Velden & Afroboogie - Cowbell
SR - This track is a clear signal to everyone in the room that it's time to dance. I believe the term is "floor-filler."

16. Major Lazer - Pon De Floor (ft. Vybz Kartel)
EB - Philly's biggest record this year. Pon De Floor consistently made young people scream and freak out in uncontrolled excitement and made old people scratch their heads and take advil.
SR - An anthem I played/heard at almost every party I went to this summer - so good!

17. Duck Sauce - aNYway
EB - I'd say this track was neck and neck with Major Lazer for making the kids flip, but old folks have been known to dance to it as well.
SR - Also a summer anthem.

18. Starks & Nacey - Summer Madness
EB - Total summer jam. Reminds me of crosstown bike rides through empty streets in the middle of the night. The dudes from DC really came correct, and no, I'm not talking about Obama.
SR - I consistently found it difficult to select a track to follow this one - the room is just so full of posi-vibes after the breakdown.

19. La Roux - In For The Kill (Skream Remix)
EB - 8 a.m. Skylab anthem
SR - This always fills the club with a nice level of tension. Definitely worth squeezing into my house sets.

20. House of House - Rushing to Paradise (Walkin' These Streets)
SR - So beautiful, so epic, so good.

21. Mayer Hawthorne - Just Ain't Gonna Work Out
EB - "Play the heart shaped record!" I love this song for too many reasons to list.

Thank you to everyone who made 2009 such an incredible year.

Non Goth Posi Vibes

Holy shit listen to this Bad Romance remix - it sounds like a diva house song from the 90's!!! Transforming Lady Gaga into something this good takes an abundance of love and maybe even a little bit of blackest majick. Bromius was born unto this internet with both.

ps - I know lots of DBJ heads like vintage house, so I want some comments on this track. Is this a lost relic from 15 years ago or am I crazy?

Nothin' But The Transformation (Bad Boy Sources)

I want to do a little series on Bad Boy sample sources, now I'm not going to post "Can't Hold Me Down", "It's All About The Benjamins" or anything obvious like that. I'm going to focus on lesser known songs that have great original sources like Mic Geronimo's track "Nothin' Move But The Money". Puff's producers were definitely on point when they looped up Nona Hendryx's "Transformation" for this record. It's a sick track to spin out as well as a great listen. Check out both the original and Bad Boy's Hip-hop version, Hope ya Dig. Enjoy!

RCMP on Scion Radio

I had the pleasure of doing an interview with Cosmo and Ayres from The Rub. We chopped it up about RCMP, Philadelphyinz, Pittsburghese, our Young Robots label project, the old Paradise at Key West and the brief but spectacular Philly career of DBJ's own Mike Tee.

Relative Q
and I also did a guest mix with lots of disco, new and old. Ayres and Cosmo also mix it up on some old school rap shit.

The show is available only as a live stream right now. You can listen to it at Scion Radio's site OR you can listen with the convenient new player at the top of the sidebar right here on The Doller Ban Jams Internet Website!

Put it on while you're getting your hair braided or having a cocaine-induced midnight house cleaning session.

Tracklist is posted in the comments section.

40th B-day

Ok, so last Friday I djed Olga Rivera's b-day party - it was mad fun! Olga's story is actually pretty sick, she is a freestyle singer from back in the day. Mrs. Rivera put out a lot of records during her career, but one of her most popular jams is "Looking Through The Window". It originally came out on wax, but was recently featured on "Freestyle Roots" Vol. 2 in 2008. Enjoy!

Ps: I played a ton of freestyle music at her party, it was sick!

Buy Endless Bummer!!!

I realize Endless Bummer, Pink Skull's latest LP, has already gotten a bunch of press, but it's earned it. BUY THIS RECORD. They really surprised me with the organic and warm nature of this material. Think more post-punk/prog/psych than electro. Plus the concept for the art is amazing. The vinyl (which includes downloads & bonus tracks) is available from RVNG and the files are on Beatport.
