2013 Motown Throwdown Recap & Live Mix

 

Last month I put out a live recording of my set from the 2013 Motown Throwdown in Morgantown, WV.  It’s a fresh mix of hip-hop, rock, trap, twerk, dnb and best of all, it’s clean (no swear words) for the kiddies.  Download the mix and check out all the photos of the event in my recap.

DJ Impulse on the Extra Credit Podcast

 

Have you ever wondered what Coffee Talk would be like with a bunch of DJs?  Well, Episode 7 of the Extra Credit Podcast turned into that.  DJ Impulse (and DJ Excel) drank all my coffee and ate all my donuts in my kitchen while we talked about Impulse coming up in Baltimore.  This episode covers Baltimore club music, horrible DJ names, touring with rappers when you’re a white dude and even gives you some great tips on making a good cup of coffee.  Enjoy, subscribe in iTunes and give us a good rating.

DJ News

 

Every week I come across articles and stories about DJing, DJing technology or just cool music-related ideas.  Since I don’t have much faith in the actual sharing effectiveness of most forms of social media, I decided to start a segment on my site called “DJ News”.  As I accumulate them, I’ll be posting happenings from around the internet related to DJing and music.  Grab a coffee and stay up to date!  Edition 1 HERE.

Jerry’s Records (Pittsburgh, PA) to open bargain basement.

 

If you’re a record nerd, you undoubtedly know about Jerry’s.  If you want a quick tour, watch THIS video of me walking around the store.  Jerry recently decided to open up the bargain basement for even more savings on one of the most amazing record, tape and CD collections on Earth.  Read HERE.

 

 

DJ Platurn chimes in on 10 records every DJ or party host should own.

 

Mayor of the San Francisco music scene DJ Platurn chimes in on 10 records you need in your crates.  It’s no secret that some James Brown, Run-DMC, Gang Starr and Michael Jackson are good ingredients to set that party off.  If you’re already stocked up, you’re OK in my book.  Read HERE.

 

 

The Nerdy DJ.

 

Recently my North Cackalack homie DJ Forge started a site called The Nerdy DJ.  It’s a great site written by DJs with tips, tricks, product reviews and more to help you not suck and save a few bucks.  Check it out and add it to your bookmarks list.

Portland is amazing.  I try not to use the word amazing often, but, it really applies here.  The amount of good food to eat, events to attend, things to see and places to explore is too much for one person to take in without some serious planning.  There’s an ever expanding list of hikes, bike rides, concerts, art events, parties, new restaurants, cool food carts and adventures growing every week.  This was my first full Summer here and it was non-stop fun.  I had plenty of visitors to help me eat this good food and accompany me as I explored the city and surrounding areas.

 

 

I had to show Portland Summer some love and write up my adventures in a post.  Thank you to Tia, Red Bull and everyone who helped make magic happen this Summer.  Thanks also to everyone who cooked all the food I ate.  I ate tons of it… I uploaded over 70 photos to an album in chronological order.

 

CHECK OUT ALL THE PHOTOS HERE!
