Year of the Edit - Mike 2600

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 edit comes to us from Mike 2600 out of Minneapolis, a dude who has long been known for top notch DJing, digging chops and graphic design. I first saw Mike play in a basement in St. Louis in the late 90s, and I was impressed as hell with him then, and I haven't ceased to be since.

Mike dropped a nice little party break which brings a hype New Orleans bounce and old school gangsta walk flavor to the B.O.B./Bruno Mars smasher from last year.

Good thing, because even though all the ladies of the Big 10 will still get hype about the OG, it's the kinda tune that has Fake Ghostface saying things like
Ayo these little cushion niggas is violatin my gate son... Aint nobody draggin yall tenderhearted bitches over to where a nigga be enlightenin his disciples namsayin...Yalls aint worthy of no palms on ya face you jus be gettin those short backhanded slaps nahmean. Yalls gotta earn closed fists nahmean. ...Yalls aint a niggas clientele like that...Ayo matter fact Imma keep talkin bout those soft niggas that yalls is defendin like that anyway. Namsayin... Word bond that nigga Aubrey jump on a beat n he go soft as a muthafucka ey single time son. The nigga on some Bruno Mars shit. N that snow nigga Asher he alright...a nigga aint wanna throw him off no mountain or nothin like that...but he got custard in his heart son. Ya nigga Charles Hamiltons a human speedbag son...Summa yall cant handle that truth...You aint cut from divine fabrics like that namsayin... These soft niggas even breathe on you n you gon be spittin nursery rhymes over Lady Gaga joints and coppin Scions n shit. Yall gon be rockin rubber jewelry n fruit salad outfits n shit.
So basically what I'm sayin is that now you have an edit of a tune with a Bruno Mars hook that you can play without compromising your street-wise image.

Year of the Edit - DJ Apt One - Four Four Walk

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 folks - this is a heavy one - a blend of Black Van's remix of The Glass' "Four Four Letter" and weirdo gay Halloween anthem "Walk The Night." It has been a big party starter for me for at least six months now - in RCMP sets especially. Use with caution!

Anybody interested in the video can contact him via chocolatesound.com.

Hustlin & Tumblin

Hey Dollar Bin Jammers, don't tell blogger, but I'm having an affair - I just started a tumblr. Have no fear, I'll still be ripping records for DBJ with the usual vigor. The tumblr is for posting the live mixes I've been recording lately, as well as fliers, videos and other odd stuff. Have a look...


RIP Nate Dogg

The man, the legend, the voice of g-funk, Nate Dogg passed away last night, and he'll leave a big void. Dude was just straight up proper on everything he touched and he really WAS the West Coast sound for so long.

Here are a couple of Nate Dogg related pieces for you - first a little intro edit I made years ago of the canonical "Regulate" for my DJ sets.

Second, a fantastic "Best of Nate Dogg" mix from '08 by my homie Steve1der from LA.

Year of the Edit - Young Edits

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!

If you follow this blog closely, you're probably familiar with Irrelevant Celebrities aka Youth aka Young Edits. Our boy from Down Under has been turning out top notch edit work for some time now, and we're really glad he agreed to lend an exclusive jam to this project.

This particular tune - a smooth, grooving rework of a classic Delegation tune, has all the balance and drive you'd expect out of an edit from the bol, so enjoy this lil bit of uncompressed goodness!

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 edit comes to you courtesy of Chicago via Philly DJ Thomzilla of the Broadzilla family. Thom held it down at Philly's legendary Making Time parties for years before relocating to the Windy City this past fall on a hot dog eating scholarship.

This smooth edit of the Hot Chocolate classic has a super cosmic feel - almost soundtracky. Perfect burner for early night warmups or 4 AM drugged out cosmic action!
