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 asked by Jenesis Magazine recently to drop some knowledge about the Top 5 Mistakes I see DJs today making.  The interview went kinda viral and even spawned another video interview that week from Remix Report (watch here).  Click here for the full segment.

DJ Zimmie – Rainy Day

My newest mix, Rainy Day, is a soundtrack to take a walk in the rain, lounge around on a day off or just mellow out.  If you put this on and took a nap, it wouldn’t bother me.
