“To Pimp A Butterfly Shrimp”
No shows booked at the moment.
Last week I got to rock at Moomba Supperclub in Montreal. I had never been to Montreal before and I had such a great time. The club was insane, the people we so nice, the women were beautiful and the food was bomb. Thanks to everyone who came out and to Moomba for the great hospitality. Hopefully I see you again real soon. Click the pic below for the full album.
This weekend I went to Seattle for the Red Bull 3Style West Coast finals. I got to hear some inspiring DJ sets, including a face melting routine from Red Bull 3Style World Champion Four Color Zack and a headlining set from A-Trak. I also got to catch up with the big homies DJ Jazzy Jeff and Z-Trip over some steaks. It was DJ heaven. Luckily schedules allowed time for me to record an interview with Jeff for my Extra Credit podcast series and it’s pure gold. Get your learn on!

We’re back with another edition of the Extra Credit Podcast. This time I got to interview Graham Funke, possibly the most interesting DJ I’ve ever talked to. If you’re unfamiliar, Graham is one half of Captains Of Industry and has been a integral part of the DJ game for a very long time. After I stopped recording we talked about so much other material, I can guarantee there will a part 2 of this interview in the future. Don’t forget to subscribe in iTunes and give the podcast a good rating!

Sample-based Hip-Hop, to me, is the essence of Hip-Hop. Taking what’s available to you and adding a creative spark to make it your own is how break records in NYC parks turned into the most influential genre of music on Earth. Footnotes is an encyclopedic mix series of sample-based Hip-Hop by year. Mixes will be released chronologically, multiple editions per year when necessary, to educate listeners on the ingredients of Hip-Hop. Digging for samples is constantly expanding my musical horizons by introducing me to artists and tracks that become new favorites while giving me insight into what producers grew up listening to.
Note: This first edition covers 1979-1981. I won’t cover every single song that used a sample. If I did, I’d never finish. I’ll be highlighting important songs, unique sample flips and influential artists or producers. Some samples were used by multiple artists and I’ll be showcasing what I think was the best or most popular usage.
Stay in school! Thank you to LRG for the support!

One of my favorite parts of a DJ gig is the post-gig meetup / sh*t talk session that happens at 3 am with other DJs. I love hearing about how the gig went, what was bad, what was good and if I haven’t seen the person in a while, what’s been up with them. A lot of times DJs tell stories to each other that give the inside scoop about how “the best party ever” actually sucked or how they had an amazing night and things of that nature. I wanted to capture some of these stories but also introduce some veteran DJs as well as producers & entertainers to DJs that might not be familiar. Hopefully through their stories you’ll find some new DJs you love listening to and if you’re an up-and-coming DJ, you may learn a thing or two!
Episode 1 features Seattle veteran DJ Supreme La Rock.
