In February I got the chance to play Motown on Mondays for the first time in Oakland (@MOM_OAK) with DJ Platurn.  The MOM parties are amazing.  The music format is anything Motown and Motown “relatives” (remixes, productions, Motown-influenced, etc.) and the people that come out just want to party.  The MOM parties are currently in almost a dozen cities with massive support through a network of DJs and remixers contributing talent, remixes, video and more.


Check out this article about the recent San Jose chapter.



If everything mentioned above wasn’t enough, MOM puts out remix albums from it’s resident and guest DJs.  One of my recent remixes “Pusha T & The MGs” is featured on the newest remix album.  You can grab all 11 remixes in this edition FOR FREE below.  Enjoy the music and keep your eyes peeled Portland, I might just be working on a MOM party for you too.  ;)

I first stumbled upon Doc Delay when I was perusing the Piecelock 70 site for random People Under The Stairs music and DJ Day remixes.  I was pleasantly surprised to find some of his excellent mixtapes and remixes.  As I dug around on the internet a bit, I only found more goodness.  If you like funky sample-based music, you’ll enjoy Doc Delay‘s creations.  Check out this interview, give the podcast a good rating on iTunes and watch the trailer for his new album “Morgan” below.

If you’re like me, you’re addicted to podcasts.  Aside from a full diet of new and classic music to check out, I fill my plate with interesting people interviewing other interesting people.  I like them so much I even made my own (Extra Credit).   Another great podcast on the DJ information tip is hosted by the DJ/production duo Rock-It Scientists.  Not only are they constantly filling your DJ crates with custom bangtastic tracks, but they’re also talking to DJs about any and everything DJ-related.


On my tour last month I was invited over to talk about DJing and promote the #DJMovie project that I’m working on.  (If you haven’t donated or checked out “Soundtrack: The Story of the DJ”, you can do so at www.TheDJDocumentary.com)  We had a great talk about the ups and downs of DJing, the documentary and how we can un-fuck DJing. (Hopefully?)


Check out the podcast, subscribe, give them a good rating, send it to a club owner and get behind the DJ documentary movement.  (Even if you’re not a DJ!)
