Year of the Edit - Platurn

Each week in 2011, the "Year of the Edit," Dollar Bin Jams and Young Robots Records will be debuting one exclusive edit for your enjoyment!

This week's entry comes from East Bay honcho DJ Platurn. Plat is always strong on the edits and mixtapes and I was really happy that he was down to contribute a tune to our little project here. I'd say more but I think his work on this tune speaks for itself.

He's generously allowed DBJ to offer "Love To The World" as a free DL, and in exchange for his generosity, I'd like to encourage everybody to purchase some tunes from the edit EP that features this particular tune. It's called "Blends + Edits for the Lab" and it's available only on Turntable Lab. For this reason we will not be re-upping this particular tune when the Mediafire links expire. I know we tend to encourage our readers to buy vinyl, and keep that world alive, but we want to encourage all our readers to buy independent digital music too so that people like us can put enough food on the table to spend quality time making tunes! Sites like Turntable Lab, Juno and Beatport are very artist friendly and we encourage you all to peruse those and put some skrilla in the pockets of some independent artists.

30,000 Feet High

Wut up Dollar Bin Jammers? I have been quite busy of late and I haven't been able to post much but I shall return in the spring...Bling!...I have been traveling every weekend to a different city spinning for The 3rd Rail jam Tour's after parties. I have 5 more gigs with them all over the west coast and I am having a blast. Huge thanks to my favorite sponsor Slacker Radio for believing in me and check the station if u haven't already =Here! I have been flying quite a bit and I hate planes so I made this mix to help myself not be so scarrrrrred when taking off in one of those cheaply made air gliders. Btw peep the video of the after party at the Wobbly Barn in Killington, Vermont =Here! Enjoy the mix "30,000 Feet High" in 30 minutes. Peace Kidz

Year of the Edit - DJ Apt One - Steel It Steelers

Each week in 2011, the "Year of the Edit," Dollar Bin Jams and Young Robots Records will be debuting one exclusive edit for your enjoyment!

OK, so for a while now I've had this week circled as the "week I finally release a mixtape and associated edits that I've been sitting on forever and ever." But with the Steelers winning last night's AFC Championship game, I had to turn to the secret stash of Pittsburgh-centric gems for this joint I edited up last week -

And in case you didn't know, the Philadelphyinz "Pittsburgh Club Anthem" is now on soundcloud and back in full effect!

Year of the Edit - The Bladerunners and Skinny Friedman

Each week in 2011, the "Year of the Edit," Dollar Bin Jams and Young Robots Records will be debuting one exclusive edit for your enjoyment!

This week's installment of "Year of the Edit" comes courtesy of a fine food chain of producers. A-Trak made the OG, Boston's Bladerunners made a dub edit, and YR/DBJ mainstay Skinny Friedman re-edited it to bring it up to housey heights. Now that's what I'm talmbout!

If you aren't familiar with The Bladerunners, I suggest you get learned, because those boys make some of the best edits in the biz and they're some of the best party rockin DJs on the East Coast.

Crawling And Hungry

Here's an 11 minute deep techno odyssey I rescued from a dollar bin last weekend. According to Discogs, dude is from Dallas. Kinda surprising - this has Germany written all over it.

Let 'Em In

I know this track has been all over the interweb for years, but this file comes straight for Joakim himself. So do yourself a favor & replace that shitty bootleg vinyl rip.

Year of the Edit - Love Hangover (DJ Apt One Edit)

Happy New Year all you DBJ-ers out there!

On behalf of all of us, I'm very pleased to announce a new feature on the site - Dollar Bin Jams and Young Robots "Year of the Edit." If all goes well, we will be debuting one new edit every week in 2011, from DBJ contributors and from our vast network of friends and cronies. Young Robots is a record label I co-run with Relative Q of RCMP, Skinny Friedman and our new ace Shawn Ryan, all of whom you know well. I encourage you to stay tuned to some of the things we've got going on over there as well!

I'd like to start it off by offering up a tune I've teased here on the site before, my edit of the classic downtown tune "Love Hangover." I set out to make this intending to just have an "all uptempo" version which kept more of the feeling of the building introduction than some of the other edits of this that have been made before. I'm pretty happy with the results and hopefully you like it too.
