I’m heading back to see my Canadian peoples for a double dose and help promote Red Bull THRE3STYLE. If you’re in Montreal or Quebec City, you’ve got some major parties that you don’t want to miss.

If you’re in the Carolinas, I’ll be giving a talk at the University of North Carolina on Tuesday, April 7th. I’ll be discussing the documentary, the importance of DJing in popular culture, a wide variety of other DJ-related topics and there will be a Q&A. (I’m also hoping for a BBQ&A on my trip. Ha.) The discussion will be held at 2pm in Hill Hall. Please forward this to any DJs you know in the area and reach out to me with any questions. Major shout out to Mark Katz and DJ A-Minor for hooking this up.
To schedule a discussion at your school, please email through the contact page.
Later that evening I’ll also be rocking alongside A-Minor on Chapel Hill.
To celebrate the fact that you don’t have to work on Monday, we’re throwing a special edition of Motown on Sundays with the record boss Supreme La Rock from Seattle. Come sweat your face off to good music.

My man DJ Klyph is definitely one of the good guys. He’s always super positive and all about connecting people in the Portland music scene with each other and the rest of the world. I’ve been on his radio show at KZME twice and recently he interviewed me for his podcast, Klyph Notes. Peep game…
Last week my SoundCloud page reached 200,000 plays! I will always find it inspiring to know that people around the world listen to my mixtapes and remixes. I post everything for free because I want to reach as many people as possible and I can’t thank everyone enough for supporting what I do. Cheers!
New hip hop albums that I keep on repeat are like great white buffaloes at this point in my life. PRHYME, the new collaboration between DJ Premier and Royce Da 5’9″ has been on heavy repeat for me. If you want golden era hip hop flavor with 2015 seasoning on top, this album is for you. Preem and Royce are on tour so if you see they’re coming to your town, go. I toured with Preem and Pete Rock last year so I can tell you first hand that the live show is gonna be top-notch. I’ll be opening the show in Portland on 3/8.

Over a delicious cup of coffee, Cutso and I recently agreed that we should do something to help celebrate #DreDay2015 and show our appreciation for one of the greatest musical minds of our time, Dr. Dre. Cutso and I are both nerds and I’ve been messing with 8Bit remixes recently so we decided to flip the seminal classic “Nuthin’ But A G Thang“. Our version has just enough nerd synth to make you nostalgic for your Nintendo but we also gave it enough drums so you can play it in your sets, at Zumba class, whatever.
Shout out to my man DJ 3PM for the video sync.
Look out for more remixes from us very soon…
