Every year I go to NAMM with the good peoples from AGI Pro DJ. NAMM is where any company who makes anything related to music performance can show their new toys for the upcoming year. You can see everything from turntables to guitar picks to Corey Feldman walking around dressed up like Michael Jackson. (it’s in the photo album, trust me)
This year I shot my usual videos for AGI Pro DJ talking to DJs and various other figures about what gear they were checking out. I also shook some hands and made some connections for the DJ Documentary. Check out this quick interview with DJ Kevin Scott from Direct Music Service.
There’s more interviews on AGI Pro DJ’s YouTube page along with some great product demos. If you’re a DJ and you’ve never been, I highly recommend checking out NAMM at least once. Click the pic below to check out more photos in the gallery!
I’ve been rocking edits and remixes from Cutso for a while now. I brought him up to Portland and Seattle last week to rock some gigs and we’re extremely overdue for a podcast update so… In this episode we talk about coming up in San Jose’s mobile-DJ community, people getting stabbed at gigs, producing music for the Jabbawockeez and more. Sorry for the delay, the documentary has been eating up the good interviews.
Also, if you need some DJ gear, sound, lights, whatever, visit our podcast sponsor, AGI Pro DJ, and use the code EXTRACREDIT when you check out. You’ll save some loot while supporting a DJ-based company!
To help promote their THRE3STYLE DJ battle, Red Bull booked me for gigs in Quebec City and Montreal last month. It was my first time in Quebec City and I got to play with the 2013 Canadian Thre3style champion Adam Doubleyou at Maurice Nightclub for their 20th anniversary party. Everyone in QC was lovely and the party was fantastic. I can’t wait to go back and explore more. QC has a very European feel (it’s 400 years old) and people have referred to it as “Practice France”.
Moomba in Montreal was crazy as usual (in case you couldn’t tell from the video). They book some of the biggest names in the biz and provide top-notch hospitality. I’ll be seeing both cities again sometime next year, keep an eye out. Click the photo below to check out the full gallery of all the photos.
Because sometimes you need to get from EDM that all sounds the same to ratchet rap that all sounds the same. The free download includes a clean version so you can play this inspirational tune for impressionable minors. Oh well…

Look man… If you don’t like the Beastie Boys AND helping people, I don’t even know why you’re on this page because I’m all about both of those things.
Next month I’m involved with an awesome party to benefit the Oregon Food Bank. Myself, Ruth & The Reason and Grand Royale are throwing down at Star Theater. If you’re unfamiliar, Grand Royale is a live tribute to the Beastie Boys. Done.
