Maaaaan listen… I’m super late on this but at least I have a good reason. I’ve been working like a mad man on Soundtrack: The DJ Documentary so some things have been on the back burner for a second. It will all be worth it in the end though.

 

In May I went on tour to support Pete Rock & DJ Premier for a tour of Australia and New Zealand. Basically the day after the tour ended, if I died, I would have been totally fine with my life. Bucket list shit. 109 photos HERE.

 

First off, if you haven’t grabbed “Wizard of AUS“, the mix I released for the tour, do your self a favor and treat your ears.  If you see me out, ask me for a hard copy.  Free download HERE.

 

 

The tour was amazing.  Pete & Preem were playing not only their productions but also hip-hop classics of all kinds.  There were sample sets, Wu-Tang sets, sets to commemorate the 20th anniversary of Illmatic, sets for James Brown‘s AND Stevie Wonder‘s birthdays and so much more.

 

AUS Laminate

 

Just being on the road wasn’t too shabby either.  Nothing makes breakfast extra special like 2 hip-hop legends telling the stories behind some of your favorite music.  Don’t think I didn’t ask 2 million questions.

 

Sydney Pete Premier AUS

 

One of my favorite parts of each show was seeing Pete & Preem take the time to sign every single piece of merch & memorabilia that people brought and bought.  Not only were people copping tour shirts and posters, they were bringing records, shirts and crazy pieces of hip-hop history to the shows.  No matter how long it took, the guys signed everything and took countless photos.

Four Color Zack Interview

 

A few years ago, Four Color Zack came out of nowhere and started making us all feel like we might wanna quit DJing.  Before I could finish my coffee, he was the 2012 Red Bull Thre3style World Champion.  The best part of this tale is, as you’ll learn from this interview, Zack is one of the nicest, most humble and hardest-working DJs in the game.  If anyone should be the ambassador for DJing, this guy deserves that crown for sure.  Zack recently chiseled some time out of his crazy schedule to sit down with me for a coffee and talk about becoming a DJ by way of a metal band, his love of social media and staying positive as a DJ.

 

Also, if you need some DJ gear, sound, lights, whatever, visit our podcast sponsor, AGI Pro DJ, and use the code EXTRACREDIT when you check out.  You’ll save some loot while supporting a DJ-based company!

Motown On Mondays Remix Album

 

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.  ;)

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.
