The 8th Day

Recently, I scavenged a copy of the 8th Day's self-titled LP from the trash at a flea market. Here's my favorite cut: the heartfelt closer.

Third of the Storms (Party Bros. Remix)

The Party Bros. (aka Chris Burns & Gavin Holland) have a fresh remix of Mike Simonetti's Third of the Storms for you. It's a stripped-down, dubby burner that strikes a unique balance between mechanical and human. It's not often that I encounter minimal tracks that I'd like to hear during the daytime.

Download it from the Soundcloud player below & check out their page for an alternate reprise version.

My favorite of the 3 mixes & the only one not available digitally. Problem solved.

SyntheTigers Fever

Here's a tasteful edit of Isaac Hayes' version of Fever, courtesy of our homies, The SyntheTigers. The drums on this knock pretty hard. I'm thinking this will get a great dance floor response.

What I Like

This competes with Wide Boy Awake's Chicken Outlaw for the best band shot ever. It's a solid cut too. If you don't know it, you may recognize it as the sample source of a big track from a couple years ago.

Free Download of Joy Revision Edits

 In late 2010, Gazeebo International released a few of my disco edits. They are pretty straight forward cut & paste jobs of a Sylvester classic, a Haircut 100 b-side, and a Dennis Coffey cut. Now you can have them all for FREE! Downloads are enabled in Soundcloud. Please leave comments if you grab them!

You can also grab all 3 in a zip file here:

Hello DBJ fam. While drinking beer on the street in Berlin early this week I ran into one of our friends in Helsinki 78-82. We were talking about digging and all the things that nerdy DJs talk about, and he reminded me that I actually post on this blog and I should, uh, actually post more. Hopefully I'll keep Shawn from getting carpal tunnel syndrome. I'm in Paris right now, and I have some EU and UK shows coming up, and if anybody can make it to them, I promise some TUNES! Well hopefully I can re-commit to it, and here's a topical and sexy lil' gift to say "I'm sorry:"

DMZ Classic

Early DMZ records were pretty dope, like this super stoned beat from Loefah. It's dubstep I can actually get down with. I noticed it's going for a pretty penny (pence?) on Discogs, so I thought I'd give it a fresh rip...

The Flower

The Flower is a quality slow house cut with great pads, vibes & piano. It's a shame it only clocks in at 4 minutes. And you gotta love the mix title. Mature indeed.

Freedom Dub

Here's a cool dub track from Brenda Fassie, a famous South African singer. I found it at Jerry's earlier this year while I was at the listening station. So, big shout outs to Johannesburg & Pittsburgh!
