Sometimes when you’re halfway home, your pager is STILL blowin’ up.  Unfortunately, if you have BBQ sauce on your fingers, you don’t want to check it because you’ll ruin your freshly creased khakis.  Please, be safe this holiday season and don’t Q and drive.  Volume 6 of the You Gots To Grill mix series is giving you an overhand slap like you stole something.  Don’t forget to cop 1-5 HERE.

Speaking of Summer, have you copped a fly DJ Zimmie shirt for your girl yet?  They’re on sale right now at www.WhiteFolksGetCrunk.com.  Order today and you’ll get a shirt, sticker and a Wizard of AUS tour CD for only $20!  It’s the best deal on Earth, we checked.  Shipping’s on you, kiddo.



In February I got the chance to play Motown on Mondays for the first time in Oakland (@MOM_OAK) with DJ Platurn.  The MOM parties are amazing.  The music format is anything Motown and Motown “relatives” (remixes, productions, Motown-influenced, etc.) and the people that come out just want to party.  The MOM parties are currently in almost a dozen cities with massive support through a network of DJs and remixers contributing talent, remixes, video and more.


Check out this article about the recent San Jose chapter.



If everything mentioned above wasn’t enough, MOM puts out remix albums from it’s resident and guest DJs.  One of my recent remixes “Pusha T & The MGs” is featured on the newest remix album.  You can grab all 11 remixes in this edition FOR FREE below.  Enjoy the music and keep your eyes peeled Portland, I might just be working on a MOM party for you too.  ;)



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…

I don’t know who decided that the soundtrack for a pool party is aggro bro rave music, but they are confused.  This mix will put a smile on your face and drastically decrease the odds of UFC fighting at your pool.  I talked to your girlfriend, she likes all these songs.

I dropped 2 mixes in February.  If you didn’t cop them yet, click the artwork to download.



Sample-based Hip-Hop, to me, is the essence of Hip-Hop. Taking what’s available to you and adding a creative spark to make it your own is how break records in NYC parks turned into the most influential genre of music on Earth. Footnotes is an encyclopedic mix series of sample-based Hip-Hop by year. Mixes will be released chronologically, multiple editions per year when necessary, to educate listeners on the ingredients of Hip-Hop. Digging for samples is constantly expanding my musical horizons by introducing me to artists and tracks that become new favorites while giving me insight into what producers grew up listening to.


Note:  This first edition covers 1979-1981. I won’t cover every single song that used a sample.  If I did, I’d never finish.  I’ll be highlighting important songs, unique sample flips and influential artists or producers.  Some samples were used by multiple artists and I’ll be showcasing what I think was the best or most popular usage.


Stay in school!  Thank you to LRG for the support!
