Saturday i’ll be DJing for the Elefunk Wall Jam and after-party. This is an event dedicated to Patti Astor‘s legendary Fun Gallery, a space that spearheaded graffiti art in the early to mid 80s in New York and catapulted the scene into a worldwide phenomenon.

One of my favorite Dilla remixes (when he was still known as Jay-Dee). Those neck snappin’ snares and intricate layers were a major influence on my own production style — so unique and ahead of its time (this was 17 years ago folks — James Yancey didn’t start with Donuts). Enjoy the breakdown…
The Pharcyde — She said (Jay Dee Remix)
Gato Barbieri — El Arriero
Steve Miller Band — Space Intro
My favorite part of this remix is when he slips in a tiny part of one of my all time favorite songs. An insight into just how deep his layering really was…
Heatwave — Star of the Story

Super proud of this one. The Midnite Sons, myself and my brother Kicker Dixon, made a video with our good friend and visual mastermind John Coyne for our original produced track “Cabin Fever”, a slow burning down-tempo electronic monster with a pretty little melody on top. The dramatic progression begged for visuals, and after careful deliberation the concept of a man slowly but surely loosing his shit was born. Enjoy, and if you dig it, please help spread the word!
