Years ago I was in Vegas for a fashion trade show and the highlight of the week was supposed to be a DJ AM / DJ Jazzy Jeff performance at Rain Nightclub. Unfortunately AM died that week the the gig ended up being a tribute show by DJ Jazzy Jeff and DJ Premier. I remember walking into the club and seeing this gorgeous woman on the decks warming up the party. It was the first time I had heard anyone play “Clear” by Cybotron at a night club. I was sold. The rest of her set was super dope and I became a big fan.
Fast-forward a few years, a little social networking, some mutual friends and here we are. Last week DJ 88 h it me up about being part of her regular DJ interview series, Hang The DJ. She’s got some heavy hitters on there and it was an honor to be considered. Check me out, read some other great interviews and do your self a favor, next time you’re in Vegas, look her up!
In case you were wondering who’s been holding down Raleigh, North Cakalack, it’s definitely Cortney. When she’s not putting in work on her blossoming modeling career, you can find Cortney making guys drool as a Go-Go dancer at the biggest, baddest night clubs in Raleigh. If you’re not sold on wifey material yet, she’s also quite the sneaker head, boasting over 90 pairs of Nikes alone. Oh and her dad owns a ’64. #WinWinWin

Cause I’m rollin’ in my six four…
I really dig Mr. Saxobeat but he needed more bass and some malt liquor. It’s Beastie Boys “Brass Monkey” flipped into Alexandra Stan “Mr. Saxobeat”.

On Saturday, October 22nd, I DJ’d the wedding of 2 awesome people, Lindsey and Ashwin, at the Mattress Factory in Pittsburgh. I was already excited because the music request list was nothing but house music and Motown, and the caterer told me the menu included traditional Indian food. (Not a bad gig if you ask me…) Luckily the weather held out and we had a beautiful ceremony. After dinner, photos and a few quick speeches, it was non-stop dancing until it was time to leave. I had a blast and I have a feeling everyone else did too. Thanks to Caitlin Thomas for the awesome photos.
Miss October 2011, originally from Norway, now lives in London. Aside from being a full-time International Relations student, Maggie also keeps a full modeling schedule. Beauty, brains and also a huge fan of gangster rap. What else could you ask for?!

I love women and I love electronic dance music. This is a great mix of both.

Next weekend I’ll be DJing the 5th annual Motown Throwdown at WVU in Morgantown, West Virginia. It’s a giant party at WVU every year where they block off the main street in town, High Street, truck in tons of snow, hold a snowboard competition and have DJs rock it. This year I’ll be performing with the legendary Phife Dawg from A Tribe Called Quest. The party is put on every year by the homie Andrew at Pathfinder. If you’re at WVU, you’d better be there. If you’re not, I suggest making the drive. Check out the pics below from 2010…

On 10.1.2011 I got to DJ the Red Bull ReMX motocross race at Steel City Raceway in Delmont, PA. ReMX is a relay race-style motocross event where each rider is part of a 4 man team but competes against riders in their own class as well. It’s a cool concept and the riders came ready to give it their all.
Unfortunately, we couldn’t have had worse riding conditions. It started out around 55 degrees with light rain and by the middle of the race it was about 40 degrees and pouring rain sideways. Although it got extra sloppy, the race went on and everyone had a blast. Nothing like a little bit of punk & metal to keep everyone in a good mood!
Shout out to great guy and amazing photographer Garth Milan for the recap photos.
On 9.24 I was brought down to DC to rock for a triple birthday bash at Cities. DC’s nightlife is off the chain so I knew it was going to be a good time. Shout out to birthday man Bobby and the homie Mark for putting me on.
Line down the street… early! (Funkmaster Flex voice)
We swear Bobby was actually happy about his birthday…
DJ Vicious, me, Bobby.

Had to hit the late night Korean BBQ spot, open 24 hours and super legit. Thanks to Geometrix and the homies from Commonwealth for the good eats! Honey Pig for the win.
