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.


2013 marks the 7th year for the Pathfinder of West Virginia’s “Motown Throwdown”.  Every year around Halloween, Pathfinder blocks off High Street, the main street on WVU’s campus and throws a massive party.  The park team from 7 Springs Resort trucks in snow and builds ramps for a ski and snowboard competition.  No party would be complete without amazing music so in addition to my DJing, past musical guests include Mix Master Mike and Phife Dawg from A Tribe Called Quest.  (video HERE)  This year’s throwdown was big as ever and I decided to hit the record button.

DJ Zimmie – Live at the 2013 Motown Throwdown (Clean)



It’s that time of year again…  If you haven’t been to the Motown Throwdown and you live within 2 hours of WVU, you’re missing out.  Every year our good friends at 7 Springs truck in snow and we build a snowboard park in the middle of the street.  Then we set up bands and DJs and have the best party WVU sees all year.  Check out THIS VIDEO from 2011 with Phife Dawg from A Tribe Called Quest!

DJ Zimmie October 2012 Newsletter


Big news this month!  I’ve been hard at work on the website for my private function / corporate event / wedding business and it’s finally done.  The fine folks at R1 Creative did a brilliant job on it and I couldn’t be happier.  If you’re having a school, corporate or private function, getting married or just need a great DJ with top-notch sound and lighting, look no further.  Check out the site and see what I’ve been up to when I’m not at the club.

Portland Summer 2012



On the down low, I’m working on a new mixtape project.  Let’s just say that it involves sample-based Hip-Hop, it’s going to be huge and it’s going to take me the rest of my life to finish.  More details very soon…
