4/21 — Topping it off with two of my heroes at my favorite venue in SF, Mighty! Gonna be a crazy one.
The long awaited remix EP from yours truly and the genius of Kat ((O1O)), vibes afficionado extraordinaire. The aim was to kick the usual DJ remix in the ass and make entirely new and semi-modern sounding music beds for these classics that we all know and love. The EP is free but feel free to donate a lil’ sumthin’ so that we might could make another one.
Spread the word y’all! Thanks in advance for listening.
I remember when I first copped this record during my diggin’ for jazz breaks phase (never really ended honestly). This album is beautiful, as is most of Ramsey Lewis’ work from the late 60s and the decade after. This is def a favorite and I love how two absolutely classic Hip-Hop tracks used two entirely different parts of the song. Ironically, Mr. Lewis is one of the most outspoken dudes out there shittin’ on sampling, still to this day. If you only knew Ramsey — if you only knew
Ramsey Lewis — The Mighty Quinn
Leaders Of The New School — Case Of The P.T.A.
The Pharcyde — Officer
Shout out to my cousin Sveimhugi for reminding of this one — one of my favorite mixtapes of all time! By the way, in case you didn’t know, Dibbs is still battling with liver cancer and could use your help in any way you’re willing (most of us DJs have little to no health insurance).

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.
