So here’s the scoop — my brethren over at TRUE CLOTHING have been doing a ‘Clerks’ mix concept for quite a while now, where they pair up DJs and store employees whilst making beautiful music together.
Concept is simple — employee picks music, DJ mixes it. Not so simple, mixing it. Taking another persons choice selections and making it work can be quite challenging as a DJ because it’s not you choosing the tracks, simply choosing the way to mix ‘em.
Anyway, I love a challenge and the mastermind behind TRUE himself, DJ Dark Money aka Michael Brown, chose me to do his and the rest is history. And to boot, in-house TRUE designer and genius extraordinaire Joshua Bruner did the design work and it’s not only brilliant, it’s funny as shit.
Check it all out below…
Release party this saturday at TRUE EAST in Walnut Creek! More info here.
Starting a new series on this here little blog, all about showcasing my favorite samples of all time and how they were best flipped in some classic Hip-Hop joints. Gonna set it off like this…
George Benson – Face It Boy, It’s Over
Pete Rock & C.L. Smooth – In the Flesh (Instrumental)
Pete Rock & C.L. Smooth – I Get Physical (Instrumental)
Brand Nubian – Step Into Da Cipher
DJ Jazzy Jeff – For da Love Of Da Game (Instrumental)
Edo.G – Love Comes And Goes
It’s a FREE DOWNLOAD from his new EP ‘Feast Or Famine’ and if you know of his talent and track record so far you’ll understand that he and SWTBRDS are consistently releasing some of the best current rap music that is out there!
Support that real shit!
One of my favorite jams of all time, a weird and funk heavy up tempo b-boy jam that stands the test of time in a big way! I extended every worthy section and didn’t cut anything out, leaving 10 minutes worth of dance floor ready heat — a low end boost and small master and you’re good to go. Enjoy!
Simple edit — intro, outro and mids extended + low end boost and quick master!
Was reminded recently from the homie Edaboss’ recent release about how much I love this jam…
Happy Valentine’s Day to all you bittersweet heartthrobs out there.
