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!)
DJ Zimmie on the Shut Up And Talk podcast
A lot of DJs are too young for this #TBT…
In celebration of Dre Day 2014 I decided to wrap up a remix I’ve been messing with for a minute. I started out chopping up parts of different Kendrick Lamar songs and putting them together and they all kinda fit together.
DJ Zimmie – “Kendrick“
If you know me at all, you know that I love me some West Coast G Funk. This year I’m paying homage to a man, born on February 18th, who helped shape my life. While both of those are true of my actual father, I’m speaking more specifically about Andre Young aka Dr. Dre. Dr. Dre has been at the forefront of every important era of Hip-Hop since the late 80s. N.W.A. Dre & Snoop. Eminem. 50 Cent. Kendrick. Not to mention a grip of classic club bangers from other artists and even soundtracks.
To celebrate Dre, myself and Dev From Above are going to be spinning Dre anthems, Dre productions, remixes of Dre songs, songs that Dre sampled and more. It’s basically going to be the best night of music in your entire life. Oh yeah, we’ve also got gin & juice on special. Polish your 100 spokes, throw on your dookie rope and put a fresh crease in those khakis… Errybody’s celebratin’.

I was a little too busy this past few months managing the response from my End of DJing article and working on a documentary about DJing to work on my Valentine’s Day mix series, Backrub. I’m sure there’s someone out there who hasn’t heard all of these yet or wouldn’t mind refreshing their memory so I thought I’d post up the links for easy access. Enjoy, use protection and keep it sexy…
The first official DJ for a President of the United States, DJ Adam 12 has had an interesting and envy-inducing career. He’s been the DJ for icons like Prince and Dr. Dre as well as the resident selector at some of the best parties in the history of LA (if not the world). Above all that, he’s one of the nicest DJs I’ve ever met. I got a chance to meet up with him at his studio where he’s working on a new solo non-DJ album. (On top of his amazing DJ career he’s also one half of She Wants Revenge). Make some popcorn and enjoy this one.
