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.

Hot off the presses we’ve got the artwork for the Soundtrack documentary posters. Showdeer did a great job with these and since the final posters for the film might be different, these will most likely be a limited collector’s item. Donate now and tell a friend!
