Holla @ Me Fabo

HUSTLIN! Young'n Remix! This remix has served me well over the years so I wanted to share it with all my dbj homies. When I was on tour with Slick Rick last year , I spun this joint and Rick's wife and Dj, Dj Kaos bugged out and started dancing at sound check. Hope you enjoy it the same!

Year of the Edit - DJ Apt One - Little Bitty Pretty One

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!

There will be no "Year of the Edit" entry next week - I'll be too busy on my honeymoon and as much as I love our readership, she outranks all y'all put together.

But don't despair, because I'm dropping a much-requested edit on you, an edit that is one of the very few requests I have made to the esteemed DJs at my own wedding. When you have pros on the job, they don't need much guidance.

This is a tune by the late, great Frankie Lymon. His second best known tune after "Why Do Fools Fall In Love." Originally a Bobby Day tune, there's a good Thurston Harris as well, Frankie wrecks shop on this. Basically, no matter where you drop this tune (or Dion's "Runaround Sue" for that matter), people from age 0-100 are going to drop what they are doing and dance. It's just that fun.

I took the OG and gave it a big, long intro with vocal dropouts and nice big drums - a big, high energy build. There's a solid break in the middle too.

Enjoy, and I'll see y'all in a few weeks!

Year of the Edit - Eyefour

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!

I don't know what this thing is, but it sure is weird! Some gobbling vocal thingy, some early 80s synths and open hats. Creepy "la-la-la" vocals.

Yermaine Yackson

Caution: this track gave me waking nightmares. If the apocalypse does in fact happen this year, keep this one around for the soundtrack. Seriously though, Tigerbeat6 featured Philadelphia producer Joe Lentini on their new weekly podcast, ¡√ĀNDALE! Vol.3. You can hear the rest of the release here.

DJ Theory

The bol DJ Theory hit me with this Laza Morgan / Movado / Shalamar joint and this is right up that DBJ alley! "There It Is" is by far my favorite Shalamar jawn.

First Contact...

The Discaire Society of Gentlemen recently made contact with the outside world via a 12" release. Not much is known of the society, though they may have ties with San Francisco's Honey Soundsystem. I emailed the Soundsystem & they will neither confirm nor deny ties with Discare. The 12" contains a track by Berlin via Italy's Discodromo, who were also featured on the Soundsystem's Brotherhood compilation.
"A synth-house workout inspired both by the dub sound of Basic Channel & lashings of Moroder-style synth. Dense liquid sounds riding a metallic rhythm track. Beautifully packaged in a confidential hand stamped manila file with accompanying briefing documents and the password to an x-rated video piece by gold~n~sour (produced exclusively for Discaire)."

Year of the Edit - Peter Dragontail

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!

Our good buddy Peter Dragontail laced us with this fantastic synthed out mix of XeX's "Svetlana." Super duper 80s dark synth vibes make this a real burner.

Look out for Peter Dragontail and Maggie Horn's upcoming release on T&A Records, the first of many projects in a brand-new brand-synergy mindfuck collab between Young Robots and Tittsworth and Ayres' powerhouse label!

The Planet Doesn't Mind

Time for another class with Professor Anonymous. Since he's already reviewed arcane house & disco, vintage dancehall & hip-hop history with us, he's keeping the curriculum moving. Today's lesson is on forgotten new wave gems...

Welcome to check out my latest mix. I recorded this one Sunday afternoon a few months back but just recently had time to get some cover art commissioned and whatnot. The mix is 1 hour and 45 minutes in total and the selection has a new wavey vibe to it: some of the tracks are obscure enough to be called minimal wave now, some are true classics of the early video era. Me I just like to think of them all as cool 80's jams that you can't not like. Enjoy!

Year of the Edit - DJ Apt One - Spottie Ottie

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 is an edit of a tune that has appeared previously on DBJ, packed with additional drums, synths and some extra guitar I tossed on top. I've been using this as a "last tune of the night" groove when I'm doin rap or funk sets and it the burtations get straight up heavy!
